Song of the day: The Sea and Cake/"To the Author (Version 1)"

Chicago band The Sea and Cake are on the short-list of my all-time favorite groups. Over the past 12 years, the band has released a string of excellent, jazzy and endearing records on the Thrill Jockey label (all of which are available in Rhapsody; I'd recommend their first self-titled album as an introduction).

When I was in Austin last weekend, I DJed a party using Rhapsody, and one of the songs I played was the Sea and Cake's "To The Author (Version 1)," off 2003's Glass EP. Just under 2 minutes into the song, the band locks into an amazing groove that's perfect for dancing with strangers in the pre-dawn hours. Enjoy.
