About this deal

Never breaking into a sweat, the band float along on a cushion of chiming guitar arpeggios and supply just the right amount of ambience as all the while a constant tambourine echoes through the tracks from start to finish. a tale of blossoming love etched in tiny details luxuriates over chiming guitars; on the hymn to romantic compulsion of ‘Each Time You Fall in Love’, the suspended animation of Angelo Badalamenti’s heart-stopping Twin Peaks music is echoed. A good album to play at bedtime, for sleep or love, but also for moments of reflection and to facilitate a soothing atmosphere. But it's all good stuff really, its soothing sameness likely to provide a comfort blanket in THOSE moments rather than becoming a bore chore like say the second XX album. Alongside keyboardist Phillip Tubbs, bassist Randy Miller and drummer Jacob Tomsky, the ability of Gonzalez and his band to set a scene and sustain a mood reels you in deeply.

Gonzalez’s dreamy vocals echo amongst melodic guitars and delicate percussion, with odes to lovers past, present and future worn on this album’s sleeve. After the phenomenal online break-out success of Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby, from the band’s debut EP 1, the Brooklyn transplant (originally from El Paso) wanted to project his worldview on to a bigger screen, a broader canvas. stars out of 5 -- "Band leader Greg Gonzalez's languid dream pop bleeds into one beautiful, fuzzy-headed whole. As the band’s name suggests, it’s reminiscent of lying in bed, but its ambient qualities don’t prevent it from being music you can dance to. The tail-side's 'Stop Waiting', meanwhile, is ever-more hypnotic, and clearly intends to be the hidden gem of the two.

Right from the song K to young and dumb every track a work of art, every guitar chord an awesome moment.

Fiz questão de tirar fotos da frente e do verso do vinil porque senti falta disso nas avaliações que vi enquanto escolhia o meu disco. The exception is ‘Each Time You Fall in Love’, which was recorded in the Beekman’s stairway after hours, the ghosts of screen lovers channelled in every warm note. Indeed, this debut is more than enough to justify the considerable hype around this outfit, being a collection of ditties as sultry as they are atmopsheric.

Review: With the combination of band name and album title this one's always going to be a bit of a tearjerker, packed with self-reflection and self-loathing. The thing I like the most is that this sounds like chill out, love music but listen a little closer. You'll hear a slightly brighter and more optimistic song than the A-side, but it's still deeply morunful, with Greg Gonzalez singing of the faded memories of cut ties, sunscreen and summer dresses.To mirror their woozy romanticism in music, Gonzalez rejected conventional studio routes for his band, which numbers Randy Miller on bass, Jacob Tomsky on drums and Phillip Tubbs on keyboards. Cigarettes After Sex frontman Greg Gonzalez's ability to set a scene and sustain a mood reels you in deeply.

On album opener 'K', a tale of blossoming love etched in tiny details luxuriates over chiming guitars; on the hymn to romantic compulsion of 'Each Time You Fall in Love', the suspended animation of Angelo Badalamenti's heart-stopping Twin Peaks music is echoed.Recorded and finessed by Gonzalez himself during sessions in the middle of the night in Spain, it’s another suite of meditations on intimacy and heartbreak. The best tracks here are 'Apocalypse' { even though it cornily rhymes "lips" with its title,} and the moody, hypnotic 'Each Time You Fall In Love'.
