"我總是有意識地避開錄音室," Cigarettes After Sex的主唱Greg Gonzalez說道:"在世上某個開敞的角落完成錄制總會給專輯帶來別樣的感受。錄制地點的特質或氛圍就像是某種未知因素,它會成為專輯情感表達中至關重要的一環。

 

聲音和環境的巧妙結合的確塑成了Cigarettes After Sex 第二張全新專輯《Cry》的靈魂。錄制于西班牙馬略卡島上一座令人艷羨的宅邸,《Cry》用極簡的筆觸描繪出曼妙的線條與柔媚的光線,讓人在這般聲音圖景中感到難以言喻的美麗、情迷意亂的渴望。受到島上鮮活色彩和新鮮環境的感染,Gonzalez常常在與鼓手Jacob Tomsky、貝斯手Randy Miller和鍵盤手Phillip Tubbs錄音前幾分鐘才寫好歌曲。他親自操刀錄音及制作工作,將重心聚焦于捕捉現場表演的氛圍,并從錄音環境和樂隊成員間的交流中獲取靈感,探索錄音素材的可能。

 

收錄九首歌曲的《Cry》雖然精練,但仍有著難以掩蓋的深度。五零年代末、六零年代初流行樂的浪漫氛圍只是專輯中容易察覺的要素,Gonzalez此番的嘗試還遠不止如此;回溯自己童年在德克薩斯州埃爾帕索度過的時光,他從九十年代特哈諾(Tejano)音樂天后Selena和主流鄉村歌手Shania Twain等經典音樂人身上汲取到諸多靈感。除了旋律上的花費的心思,Gonzalez在歌詞創作上也不遺余力地進行著革新。他毫無畏懼與窘迫,以類似Henry Miller或Leonard Cohen的直白方式坦誠勾畫時常露骨的愛欲交纏場面。Gonzalez創作時好比一個電影人,他用細膩、有著電影質感的方式捕捉不易察覺的時刻,并設法從平凡中提煉深刻的意義。



"I’ve always avoided studios," says Cigarettes After Sex frontman Greg Gonzalez. "There’s something special about recording out in the world, some kind of X-factor that comes from the character and atmosphere of wherever it is that you’re working that becomes essential to the feeling of the music."



That marriage of sound and setting is the heart and soul of Cry, Cigarettes After Sex’s riveting sophomore album. Recorded in a stunning house on the Spanish island of Mallorca, the collection reflects the uneasy beauty, erotic longing, and stark minimalism of the space, all smooth lines and soft light. Energized by the fresh palette and setting, Gonzalez would write songs just minutes before recording them with the band–drummer Jacob Tomsky, bassist Randy Miller, and keyboardist Phillip Tubbs. He engineered and produced the sessions himself, with an emphasis on capturing live performances and exploring the material together in dialogue with the house and with each other.



Clocking in at nine songs, Cry is a compact collection, but its brevity belies its depth. While the band’s sound may be most associated with the romantic pop music of the late 50’s and early 60’s, Gonzalez pushes into more unexpected sonic territory on Cry, reaching back to his childhood in El Paso, Texas, to draw subtle melodic influence from 90’s Tejano stars like Selena and mainstream pop country artists like Shania Twain. Gonzalez pushes himself lyrically on the album, too, tackling sex with the graphic frankness of Henry Miller or Leonard Cohen as he renders unabashed, sometimes explicitly erotic scenes with a casual candor. Writing with a filmmaker’s eye, he captures tiny moments with a rich, cinematic detail that manages to locate the profound within the mundane.
