The Sea & Cake, Matthew Friedberger 

When: Thu., Oct. 25, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $15

"New Patterns" is a late-album highlight on Runner, the 10th record by long-running and ridiculously stocked Chicago band The Sea and Cake. As drummer John McEntire and bassist Eric Claridge staple a thick groove to the floor, vocalists and guitarists Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt explore toughness and tenderness at once. The former comes in the form of a serrated guitar tone, biting at the soothing effluence of Prekop's sweet singing. The song eventually glides into skitters and shards, with synthesizers and pedal effects creating a tumble over an inescapable beat. Built for the first time from synthesizers and sequencers into full-band recreations, Runner indeed establishes new patterns for The Sea and Cake, a quartet of preternatural cool and confidence. Matthew Friedberger of The Fiery Furnaces opens. —Grayson Currin
