The Sea And Cake – Glass

Glass opens with “To The Author”, which is immediately followed by an alternate version of the same song. A mixture of hard disk-tweaked jazz and krautrock separates these from the second part of the album, remixes of tracks from 2002’s One Bedroom. “Interiors” is retooled by Broadcast, while “Hotel Tell” gets two remixes?one from Detroit techno legend Carl Craig, the other from Stereolab (reciprocating drummer John McEntire’s production work for them) confusingly retitled “Tea And Cake”. The disc is rounded off with an animated video to accompany the band’s cover of Bowie’s “Sound And Vision”, which also featured on One Bedroom.
