Song of the Day: The Sea and Cake, "Crossing Line"

Song of the Day: The Sea and Cake, "Crossing Line"

For some reason, the jaunty, breezy, and jazz-inspired pop of jazzy The Sea and Cake has always sounded like summer to me. So it's fitting that the band's first full-length album in four years is coming out right as we're having an unseasonably warm and wonderful week of San Francisco weather.

The new CD, titled Everybody and hitting stores today, will sound comforting to fans of the Chicago indie-scene supergroup, which includes Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt, and Tortoise drummer John McEntire. After all, these guys save the radical departures for their side projects, keeping the Sea and Cake's sound relatively uniform but consistently lovely over the years. "Crossing Line" is unexpectedly more rockin' than some of the band's other stuff but still oozing with the sound of summer. To listen,

I :love: Sea and Cake and have been listening to "Everybody" nonstop since my boyfriend snagged it for me last week. It's not as good as my favorite, "One Bedroom," but it's growing on me a lot. I'm super-bummed because they're FINALLY coming to Philly on tour, and it just happens to be the one night I'll most likely have to be in Fort Lauderdale for business. :mob:
