download 'harps' from the sea and cake

 

Chicago’s The Sea and Cake have dabbled with electronic textures before, but their wonderfully strange post rock/jazz fusion has always been rooted in the guitar interplay of Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt, and the virtuosity of drummer John McEntire.

For their upcoming tenth album, Runner, Prekop began writing and tracking demos strictly with synths and sequencers. The result still sounds like The Sea and Cake, just a little warmer and fuzzier. First single “Harps” ambles along nicely and even gives Prekop’s vocals a becoming dose of reverb:

Runner is out September 18 on Thrill Jockey. Check out fall tour dates for The Sea and Cake here.
