Album Review: Everybody by The Sea and Cake

Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

You could call the Sea and Cake classic underachievers, since they unerringly turn out the same album nearly every time (or simply apply shadings yet more subtle with every subsequent release), but two qualities get in the way of that diagnosis. First, the four members have so many outside interests -- solo albums, production work, other bands, photography, comic books, etc. -- that they could never be called lazy.

Dusted Magazine
Opinion: Very Good

Elegantly syncopated, breezily melancholy, Everybody slips by like a soft summer afternoon. It's the seventh album by this post-rockers-on-Brazilian-pop-holiday foursome -- Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt, Eric Claridge and John McEntire. It's maybe a little spinier and rock leaning than earlier efforts, but still, so effortlessly, lullingly pretty that serious listening becomes difficult.
