The Sea and Cake: Artist You Should Know

Written by

Sea and Cake make blissful breezy music that just makes my heart happy.

Their 2003 CD “One Bedroom” is one of my most listened to albums because I like to throw it on at the end of a long day when I’m not motivated enough to do anything, but not tired enough to fall asleep. It is the perfect musical antidote. I just put it on and float away. It’s exceptionally dreamy. (Check our “Four Corners”)

The breathy vocals of Sam Prekop define the Chicago band’s sound, which is truly distinct – a rarity among indie bands. You can recognize a Sea and Cake song within 30 seconds. Their new track “Harps” captures everything I love about them. (download it here)

It’s off the full length “Runner”, which will be out September 18 on Thrill Jockey Records and ranks among their best records in my opinion.  Check out their second single.

They’ll be heading to LA on November 10 for a date at the Bootleg Bar (and November 11 at the Casbah in San Diego) if you want to catch them live.
