First track is available, promos are out.

Look, Prekop and Sea & Cake itself never quite worked for me, what I’ve heard, while I’m a serious Tortoise fan who’s spent a lot of time with McEntire solo stuff.

What a pleasant surprise Sons Of is: no vocals (I don’t think?); just warm rubbery rhythmic explorations, sometimes earwormy that are easy to get lost in.

I like the first track. It's been interesting to see Prekop evolve as an electronic musician. Each release seems to get more and more focused (and I hear a lot McEntire's stamp on this too).

I thought the year in the title was 2002

That’s pretty slick, hope there’s a vinyl release

one month passes...

no vinyl as yet, tho there was a limited-to-100 cassette that's already gone.

and yeah: this is good. vaguely reminiscent of caverns of anti-matter and other nameless 90s white label downtempo jams. already been bnm'd too. good lookin, phil.

yeah its good. never in a million years would've guessed who made it

at some points, it feels like a mixtape of sea and cake demos. like i'm thinking of songs like "new patterns", "inn keeping", "fuller moon", "the invitations" — those songs they sometimes do that morph towards the end into synth vamps. this album is full of just those parts. it's really fun.
