The Sea And Cake – Any Day (Ltd. Colored LP+MP3)

Image: 1618142 The Sea And Cake deliver a refreshingly intimate collection of elegantly
arranged, singular pop songs. For over two decades and 11 albums, The
Sea And Cake have honed a sound all their own, comprised of delicate,
intertwining guitar patterns, syncopated rhythms, and airy melodies.
Masters of subtlety, their compositions have continually evolved – through
minute alterations in texture, unusual approaches to lyrics, and creative
production choices. Any Day is testament to The Sea And Cake’s artistry,
song craft, and utterly unique sound. The results are intimate songs that
speak to the searcher in all of us. Through shifting instrumentation and
sonic exploration, the band invites you into a world that is both familiar
and unexpected.
Written and recorded following the departure of bassist Eric Claridge, Any
Day is The Sea And Cake’s frst album recorded as the trio of Sam Prekop,
Archer Prewitt, and John McEntire. Since the release of their last album
(2012’s Runner), the band have, in addition to shows, been creatively very
busy: Prekop focusing on solo modular synthesizer and soundtrack work,
including an acclaimed collaboration with artist David Hart, McEntire’s
recording and touring with Tortoise, and maintaining a busy schedule as
a recording engineer and producer, and Prewitt’s work as a cartoonist and
illustrator, in addition to duo performances with Prekop. The band, still
actively performing with bassist Douglas McCombs (Tortoise, Brokeback),
were inspired by the challenge of composing as a smaller unit.
Any Day captures The Sea And Cake’s distinctive aural alchemy, melding
longing melancholy with hopeful excitement. In other hands the
combination seems impossible, but for The Sea And Cake, it’s effortless.

“The Sea and Cake occupy an indie rock niche all their
own.” – Pitchfork
“After [over] 20 years as a band, The Sea and Cake is
still creating vital, evolving music.” – Chicago Tribune
“… theirs remains an abstract, liminal brand of pop,
with Prekop’s vocals as delightfully gossamer, and
his lyrics as intriguingly impressionistic as ever. Long
may they run.” – MOJO Erhältlich ab 11.05.2018
