So funny this popped up. Was thinking of reviving a Sea & Cake thread yesterday because I was listening to some solo Prekop and had the realization that it sounded like Prairie Home Companion jazz.
(NB, I do actually like these guys.)

Yeah, was surprised to find a new album waiting for me on spotify just now. I've had a love/hate/ennui relationship with their last couple albums. Nothing bad, but nothing that gets me excited either. I'll give this a try, but don't have high hopes at the moment.

This is sounding pretty nice. They seem to maybe be getting past their regular rock n roll band phase, back to something a bit more stylized and nuanced.
I feel like I should go back to some of their more recent releases, maybe I didn't give them a fair shot.
Is Everybody the only one th at McEntire did not produce?

They feel reinvigorated on this one - might be their best in many years. That said it’s still predictably Sea and Cakey. It starts to lose me in the second half. Perhaps that will change after more listens.

hard to believe it's been 5 1/2 years since Runner

This is predictably excellent.
RE: Claridge's involvementSam answered a question on an Instagram post yesterday and said that, unfortunately, Eric had succumbed to serious carpel tunnel in his fretting hand and is now unable to play as frequently as recording and touring would demand. Really too bad. Hope he's doing well otherwise.

Ah, I'd been wondering about that. Just saw them at the Empty Bottle in Chicago, and Doug McCombs was on bass.

Apparently, McEntire is moving to Nevada City, California:http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/music/ct-ott-sea-and-cake-interview-0518-story.html
