The Sea and Cake "Everybody" - release date May 8, 2007

Check this album out. After a four year break, the rock/pop quartet from Chicago is back with it's signature tone, guitar work and lush sound encapsulated in their latest album "Everybody" out on the Thrill Jockey label.

The Sea and Cake are:
John McEntire - drums, keyboards, vibes, percussion
Sam Prekop - vocals, guitar
Eric Claridge - bass, keyboards
Archer Prewitt - guitars, vocals, keyboards
(also on this recording - Ken Champion on pedal steel)

The vinyl version of the album (that I bought at one of my favorite record stores in town 'MadCity Music') sounds great and is also beautiful to look at with black and white photographs by Sam Prekop and a silvertone album cover.

For those of you headed to the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago this summer, be sure to check out the band and send us your review, pictures, ramblings (preferably when not smashed at 3 am)

I've listened to this on Ankur's sweet hi-fi. This is really a nice recording. Go get it. . . from your local music store!
