Being a Tortoise fan, in love with 'Millions...' yet disillusioned with the muzak on 'TNT' and the irony on 'Standards', I turned to John McIntyre's other band, The Sea and Cake. And this is the first album I heard, their latest release.
It struck me immediately that this was the sound I have wanted to hear ever since falling in love with 'Eureka' and 'Halfway to a Threeway' by Jim O'Rourke. The production on 'Oui' is wonderful - the sounds are clear and resonant - and the songs are familiar and catchy, but with a unexpected depth.
Each song is lovingly crafted and skilfully executed. The album is cleverly paced and balanced to keep you returning to the beginning as soon as the record is over.
But all this production sheen and melty-smooth sound would normally make for a vacuous listen. On the contrary, Sam Prekop's breathy vocal delivery masks a real yearning that is hidden within his cryptic couldn't-care-less lyrics.
Sublime.
