I think it would probably be impossible to dislike Sam Prekop's voice. That said, it would be hard for The Sea and Cake to put out a bad record. Everything they release is going to at least sound pleasant. They kind of have an unfair advantage.
I received an advance copy of The Sea and Cake's upcoming album (Due out May 8), Everybody, a few days ago.
I've only had a chance to listen to it a handful of times, but I definitely like what I've heard so far. They do manage to sound more like Belle & Sebastian than ever, though. Is that a good thing? I dunno... how much do you like Belle & Sebastian?
Sam Prekop calls Everybody “the most straight ahead, even ‘rootsy’ record we’ve ever made.”
I don't think rootsy is the first word that comes to mind when listening to this album, but I can definitely see where he's coming from there.
The Sea and Cake- Up on Crutches
The Sea and Cake- Exact to Me
As usual, I would urge you to buy this album.
That's all for today.
