Cake - Long Time
Cake - Sick Of You

Man, if I hadn't have been so, uh, preoccupied all of last weekend, I'd probably have spent a little bit more time enjoying this, the first Cake album since 2004 or so, Showroom of Compassion. Now I'm playing catch-up, and I'm slightly annoyed, 'cause all of these random bits of trumpet/piano melodies, crunchy baselines, and jaded lyrics would've been quite appropriate, accompanying all of those talls of Jameson 12 Year (and again, to wake up to, after sleeping off all the resulting hangovers).

Showroom of Compassion will be released on January 11th, via Upbeat Records and Cake
