The Sea And Cake are the sort of band who tend to slip under the media’s radar. They regularly issue quality-assured albums with the quiet fastidiousness of cabinet makers. The sort of band people fail to take into account when complaining that nothing’s ‘happening’. One Bedroom, featuring Stereolab producer and Tortoise man John McEntire, isn’t ‘happening’. But it’s very fine, glowing with an oblique, poppy sensibility that’s theirs alone. If there had never been bossa nova, this is what it might sound like if someone tried to invent it in 21st-century urban America.
