The Sea and Cake

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.

Yes Yes Yes, this is all great musical suggestions. What about the greatest band in the recorded history of the earth? They are a specific dairy product... I forget but they are incredible you should probably mention them ALOT.
