Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Following the band's self-titled debut and second effort Nassau, 1995's The Biz served as The Sea and Cake's third record in just over one calendar year. It was recorded at John McEntire's own Soma Studios with the instruments mostly recorded live in only three days and the vocals recorded by Sam Prekop alone in five. On Nassau the band experimented heavily with signal processing and on The Biz they continued that experimentation using less common forms of processing, more sparingly. They used a Roland Space Echo, EML-101, and ARP 2600 as both instruments as well as manipulators. The Biz continued to showcase the band's ability to mesh together their unusual blend of pop, soul and jazz into one seamless output. Back in print on vinyl, The Biz comes pressed on colored vinyl for the first time and is packaged with an artworked inner sleeve and free download card.
