Hey, why not go see The Sea and Cake tonight at Club Congress? Here's what Spin has to say about them:
Much like their namesake, Chicago post-rock quartet the Sea and Cake have created music that combines a subtle sweetness with an impossibly cool beachside vibe, thanks to a mix of electronic sounds, Krautrock styles, and strong post-jazz influences. After the jigsaw puzzle austerity of last year's Everybody, the Sea and Cake return this week with their eighth studio album, the propulsive Car Alarm. Inspired partly by the birth of vocalist/guitarist Sam Prekop's first son, Car Alarm effervesces with bursts of energy while harking back to the silky-smooth pop of 2000's Oui.
