As we take baby steps into the short month called February, good news arrives: Thrill Jockey, an indie label, sends word that dreamy popsters The Sea and Cake will return with a new disc come May 8.
Titled "Everybody," the album will mark the first new release from the quartet in about four years, and I for one couldn't be more excited. There's just something inherently great about each of the band's previous releases. The Sea and Cake puts out discs to fall asleep to, CDs that reward continuously. Whether it's slow electronics, Brazilian jazz or post-rock, the band always performs effortlessly.
The beginning of this year looks incredibly solid for releases; so get excited. Whether it's matt pond PA, Clem Snide, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, Wilco or The Sea and Cake, there should be something for everyone.
