Continuing their The Sea and Cake colored vinyl re-issue campaign Thrill Jockey now offers 2008's Car Alarm, packaged in a high gloss jacket with printed inner sleeve and download card. Car Alarm is The Sea and Cake's eighth full-length record. It's bracing, like the surge of wasabe on sweet sushi, like the slap of cool water on a diving body, like the head-rush of a rollercoaster just leaving its summit. Car Alarm is the sound of a well-oiled band. Heavy hitters. It has the breezy, open, crisp sound that The Sea and Cake had spent 15 years crafting, but Car Alarm also has a palpable edge. That's the edge of people who know each other well enough to push a bit harder, who aren't worried about ruffling each other's feathers or trying something different, difficult, intuitive, trusting.
