The Sea and Cake
2012 has seen all the classic albums from The Sea and Cake return on vinyl as part of our 20th Anniversary vinyl reissue campaign. The band has also released their ninth studio album Runner to critical acclaim and are touring heavily in support. We are now happy to offer the 1994 self-titled debut from The Sea and Cake on vinyl again! This 2012 edition has been remastered to vinyl by Roger Seibel at SAE Mastering. Packaged in a full color jacket emulating the original and for the first time includes a free download coupon.
The Sea and Cake features Sam Prekop and Eric Claridge formerly of Shrimp Boat, Archer Prewitt of the Coctails and John McEntire, ex-Bastro and current Tortoise. This self-titled debut offers a mix of jazzy rhythms and laid-back grooves perfect for slow days. Recorded by Brad Wood and Casey Rice in September of '93 at Idful Studios, this record is the bands most immediate and straight forward record. Guaranteed to put you in a good mood.
“The Sea and Cake’s buoyant debut is a breath of fresh air, an utterly distinctive and innovative work that expands the scope of frontman Sam Prekop’s work in the great Shrimp Boat to incorporate a new fascination with Afro-Caribbean rhythms and textures. Recorded by Brad Wood, the album simply glows -- Prekop’s dry vocals and free-associative lyrics skip along a shimmering and lushly pastoral backdrop that nimbly fuses pop, soul, jazz, and even prog rock; tracks like “Jacking the Ball,” “Flat Lay the Water,” and “Showboat Angel” are as seductive as they are elusive.” - All Music
