Group 1 (Diehard Sea and Cake fans): While One Bedroom is certainly a worthy follow up to 2000's Oui, it is not one of their best albums. One Bedroom follows down the path of breezy, slightly electro, jazzy pop that the group has been perfecting since The Fawn. Although this will not stand out as a landmark in the quartet's cannon, it is a worthy addition to any fan's collection. The quartet seemed to perfect their new sound on their last album, Oui, and like a true craftsmen on One Bedroom, they seem intent on honing their sound. From the dreamy opening of "Four Corners", which features a Stereolabish backbeat, it's clear the Cake are not interested in experimentation. Hotel Tell" has the group flexing some of thier more ambient sound muscles before the song breaks into the closest thing the band has ever come to producing a dance track.
Melodic bass lines punctuate these restrained and complex sounds. Songs are propelled by imaginative percussion lines and shaped by spare warm vocals. Sam Prekop’s lyrical style is poetic as opposed to narrative. Paradoxically, the resulting album of delicate precisely constructed songs sounds effortless
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. 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. Prekop's lyrical style is poetic as opposed to narrative. Paradoxically, the resulting album of delicate precisely constructed songs sounds effortless. One Bedroom is a beautiful collection of creatively constructed and singular pop songs.
