Celebrating the release of their ninth full-length, The Moonlight Butterfly, out last year on Thrill Jockey, influential indie rock band THE SEA & CAKE has been a point of pride for Chicago for over twenty years now. Their light, jazz-influenced pop rock has marked them as a band that, according to The Onion, "loves its formula enough to tease it." This new effort has the core elements of the utterly unique SEA & CAKE sound, while introducing a more experimental approach to the song's textures and structures and we can't wait to see how the album translates to the stage. Featuring members of acclaimed experimental pop bands AU and PARENTHETICAL GIRLS, Portland’s GOLDEN RETRIEVER debuts songs from their upcoming Thrill Jockey release, Occupied With the Unspoken. Creating polyphonic music from monophonic bass clarinet and analog modular synthesizers, OWTU was recorded live in a basement and we’re excited to hear how these stylistically complex tracks are translated in a live setting.
