The Sea and Cake is an American indie rock band with a jazz influence, based in Chicago, Illinois, United States

Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). A kind of Chicago alt-scene supergroup, the Sea and Cake have never been a band lacking for critical notice. Lead songwriter Sam Prekop and bassist Eric Claridge hail from the brilliant and equally lauded Shrimp Boat, while drummer-producer John McIntire and guitarist Archer Prewitt arrived via Stereolab and the Coctails, respectively. Unfortunately, this is the first Sea and Cake album that I have been exposed to. Not that it's so bad, it's just that I missed their premier pieces leading up to this.

The Sea and Cake bridge the gap between Brazilian music of the late 1960's, African influenced guitar lines, and independent pop. A sound that is entirely distinct, centered around the delicate guitar interplay of Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt, driven by the versatile rhythms of bassist Eric Claridge and drummer John McEntire, and finally set apart by Prekop's vocals and obtuse lyrics.
