CD Review - The Sea And Cake - Everybody




Everybody is Chicago's The Sea and Cakes's first full length in four years. Following on from their previous pillars of indie music, 'The Biz' and 'The Fawn', They pick up where they left off with perfect, dreamlike, hot-buttered pop. Sam Prekops hushed vocals glide over the groovy basslines and disco-style beats. Recording mostly live has given the album a retro sound similar to the band's heroes, The Kinks with dual guitars meditatively strumming and tolling like bells. Effortlessly cool like James Dean in sunglasses this is a record made for Everybody to kick back and enjoy in the summer sun.

Download: Exact To Me, Lightning
For fans of: The Kinks, Stereolab, Tortoise
