None more apparently laidback as themselves, The Sea And Cake have been quietly producing albums for almost 10 years and yet still they are often seen as a kind of post-rock supergroup; a side project for Tortoise for one. Yet their last album 'Oui' was an effotlessly sublime and melodic piece of work and was as far away as it could get from the self-indulgent noodlings that are so often associated with the genre they have been pigeonholed into. To that extent 'One Bedroom' is a little disappointing as - even though the ten songs use just shy of 40 minutes of running time - the artists involved can't quite resist "showing off" with unnecessary instrumental interludes devoid of melody but high on technical expertise. Thankfully there's enough on 'One Bedroom' to remind us how good they actually are. The album begins with a very pleasant two-minute Stereolab-esque guitar workout before Sam Prekop's lush, airy vocals are ushered in like a summer breeze whilst 'Interiors' and 'Try Nothing' capture the group at their serenely best form. Credit also goes to the foursome for stamping their own identity on their cover of Bowie's 'Sound And Vision'. Proof enough that The Sea And Cake is post-rock at its most accessible.
