    Any Day is their sharpest set of songs to date, but Sam Prekop's languid melodies still prove defiantly elusive. [Jun 2018, p.35]

    The consistent rapport between Prekop, Prewitt and McEntire is more than enough to propel the Sea and Cake steady on their course.

    With Sam Prekop on vocals, though, a Sea and Cake album is genetically incapable of sounding like anything other than a Sea and Cake album.

    To complement lyrics that go for the melancholic jugular, the trio of Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt, and John McEntire stuff the record with pulsing drums, a tasteful mixture of synths and organs and subdued, yet still chugging guitars. [Mar - May 2018, p.59]

    The Sea and Cake continue to be champions for the weary and resolute alike, being both the soothing reassurance of beauty and the wistful resolve that the most dogged absolute is the very impermanence of everything. It’s a deceptively tricky feat and one that they continue to thrive on.

    There's nothing fashionable about the Sea and Cake's music, and therein lies much of their charm.

    The group have been honing their craft for over 20 years and all their trademarks can be found here. [Jun 2018, p.96]
