In stores now is the new Sea and Cake album called Car Alarm. Recorded right after the recent first ever Australian tour the album captures all that's amazing about the band. It has the breezy, open, crisp sound the band has spent fifteen years crafting, but it also has a palpable edge.We think it's their best ever full-length and this is saying something considering it's up against classics like "Fawn", "The Biz" and "One Bedroom".
The Sea and Cake's eighth full-length has the breezy, open, crisp sound the band has spent fifteen years crafting, but it also has a palpable edge. That's the edge of people who know each other well enough to push a bit harder, who aren't worried about ruffling feathers or trying something different, difficult, intuitive, trusting. This is the sound of a well-oiled band. A bracing record.
