It’s been nearly 20 years since I’ve listened to The Sea and Cake. They were a massive part of my college soundtrack, but after spending a few years in Chicago in the early 2000s, I got really burned out on the Chicago post-rock sound and left them behind.
Any Day isn’t coming out until May, but they released the first single, and I love it. It’s less rocky than the bits I’ve heard of their last few records. The bass part reminds me so much of the Kings of Convenience. I’ve had it on rotation all week. It’s really good.
