The Sea and Cake: Everybody


The Sea and Cake’s disposition has long been one of elation; Sam Prekop’s lifted vocals drifting above shimmering pop constructions. That disposition remains unchanged on Everybody, the Chicago quartet’s seventh full-length offering and its first in four years. In the context of The Sea and Cake’s catalogue, this album reflects a continuation of the polished, airy style the band struck upon early in its career but fully realized on 2000’s Oui. They have simply evolved their indie signature, honing the style rather than breaking new ground. However, the bandmembers’ fondness for pursuing other musical interests – a catalyst for lengthy lags between albums – has continuously refreshed its output, enhancing even the subtlest stylistic growth. With producer Brian Paulson in the seat manned by drummer John McEntire since The Sea and Cake’s 1993 debut, the nuances long nurtured are brought to the surface, making Everyday its strongest, most robust album to date.
