The Sea and Cake

The Sea and Cake have quietly, outside the fences of what is currently considered cool, worked and worked to a new career peak. The quartet's last record, Runner, was arguably its greatest, jumping from dreamy electronic pop ("Harps") to sun-dappled and sweet krautrock ("New Pattern"). The bachelor-pad grooves have newfound punch, and Sam Prekops woodwind-like sign is as melancholy as ever. If they had only broken up a decade ago and recently reunited, they might get the love and credit they deserve. Support your humble hometown heroes.
