Soggy Dessert 

the Sea and Cake

Chicago's the Sea and Cake has always flirted dangerously close to the precipice of too-jazzy lounge and jam-band pretentiousness. But in the four years since their last release, Sam Prekop and crew purposefully chose a new direction for their latest, Everybody, declaring it's (relatively speaking) "a rock album." While the songs do take a more straightforward approach (thanks to the focus on creating a "live sound"), they don't stray far from the dreamy, jazzy-pop aesthetic that made us like the band in the first place. It plays with Robbers on High Street and the Zincs on Friday, May 18 at Bimbo's in SF. 9 p.m., $20. Bimbos365Club.com
