The Sea and Cake
The Sea and Cake are a band who need very little introduction. In their extensive 20 year career the band has bridged the gap between Brazilian music of the late 1960's, African influenced guitar lines, and independent pop. A sound that is entirely distinct, centered around the delicate guitar interplay of Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt, driven by the versatile rhythms of bassist Eric Claridge and drummer John McEntire, and finally set apart by Prekop's vocals and obtuse lyrics. The trademark soft spoken intimacy has been replaced by assured confidence and buoyancy. The band have a renewed sense of freedom and seem to be invigorated by their own explorations. The energy and excitement are palpable.
Matthew is half of the indie rock duo The Fiery Furnaces. Matricidal Sons of Bitches (Thrill Jockey Records/October 2012) was conceived and produced by Matthew Friedberger in Paris, where he now stays, and inspired by the films of Poverty Row. The production values and narrative techniques of these films became the basis for Matricidal Sons of Bitches.
