Very fond memories of walking around Italy with their albums on shuffle. I think Oui is my favorite.

Not Crap


Word.
Oui is also my fave, but I recall at the time of it's release I was not yet over how good that first Sam Prekop record was, and was disappointed by oui. They came out pretty close to one another.

I've also never heard a better drum sound recorded by John McEntire than on that record.

Finally got around to listening to the moonlight butterfly, and it's real good. Enjoying it more than anything I've heard since the fawn.

New one showed up in the post yesterday. First impression: it's definitely a Sea and Cake record. It's really straightforward, no studio trickery, etc. It's nice.

So I've had some time to spend with the new album, and got to see them live a few weeks ago, and I am in love with Any Day. Almost sounds like it could be a follow-up to Oui. Perhaps the most emotional Sea and Cake record, there's something different about Sam Prekop's phrasing that strikes a nerve in me I can't quite describe.

Agree!

It's pretty interesting this is the first without Eric Claridge on bass (who has always been one of the best aspects of the band, in my opinion), and yet it works more or less just as well... quite like the upright work here too.

I don't think this record is somehow going to wake the world to this band, but there is some great stuff here.
