added by Alex Deller on Thursday January 18 2018 in Pre-orders

The Sea And Cake have a new album on the way. Says Thrill Jockey: "On May 11, legendary Chicago band The Sea And Cake return with 'Any Day', a refreshingly intimate collection of singular pop songs, elegantly arranged. For over two decades and 11 albums, The Sea And Cake have honed a sound all their own, comprised of delicate, intertwining guitar patterns, syncopated rhythms, and airy melodies. 'Any Day' is testament to The Sea And Cake’s artistry, song craft, and utterly unique sound."
