The Sea and Cake

They’re like a misty, partly sunny, sixty-seven-degree afternoon adorned with rainbows, cymbals, and a cloud-shrouded but beaming sun when you need it most.

I would say, if called upon to put my musical palate on a pedestal, that The Sea and Cake are artists’ artists, and they’ve made a career out of stacking albums with light, wistful, enlivening, complex, jazzy, and loungey tunes. Most of them fall into all those categories at once.

To get started, check out “The Colony Room,” “The Biz,” “Choice Blanket,” “Earth Star,” and “The Argument.”
