The Sea and Cake, 'Everybody' (Thrill Jockey)

6
Everybody
Critical Mass
Label: Thrill Jockey

by Jon Young

A quick taste of the Sea and Cake's sighing voices and moonlit guitars could raise suspicions of a simple chill-out session. But after a decade-plus in action, Sam Prekop's crew have mastered a more intricate approach, seasoning their gently introspective tales of "distracted and lazy" lovers with stronger ingredients. Here, John McEntire's unusually loud drums issue a bracing rebuttal to the passive melodies, while the psychedelic buzz of "Left On" unleashes the simmering weirdness that's muted elsewhere.
