The Sea and Cake is a band that needs very little introduction. In its extensive twenty year career, the band has bridged the gap between Brazilian music of the late 1960s, African-influenced guitar lines, and indie-pop. It’s a sound that is entirely distinct, centered around delicate guitar interplay and versatile rhythms. The trademark soft spoken intimacy has been replaced by assured confidence and buoyancy.
The band has a renewed sense of freedom and seems to be invigorated on the ninth album, The Moonlight Butterfly. Our Jam of the Day, “North Shore,” highlights the trademark singular guitar-based pop sound but takes it one step futher as it’s filtered through a more modern-shaded lens.
