Published Jun 30, 2008Barely a year after the Sea and Cake released Everybody, the jazzy Chicago outfit are set to seal and deliver their follow-up. On October 21, the band will release album number seven, Car Alarm, via their long-time home, Thrill Jockey.
According to the bands PhD-carrying songwriter Sam Prekop, releasing the two albums right after another was all part of the big picture, saying the Sea and Cake wanted to make a record that felt like they had never stopped playing. This meant the group started working on Car Alarm right after an Australian tour in March and finished the record in a quick three months. Also, Thrill Jockey tells us you can expect the record to have a more "palpable edge, which we are going to take as meaning its more rockin than the last one.
Here is the Car Alarms tracklisting:
2. "A Fuller Moon
3. "On a Letter
4. "CMS Sequence
5. "Car Alarm
7. "New Schools
8. "Window Sills
9. "Down in the City
