The Sea and Cake "Weekend"

Archer Prewitt, creator of the really great Sof Boy comic, has a new album with his band The Sea and Cake coming out called Car Alarm and this is the first single, "Weekend". Like so much of the music from the brainy but emotional Chicago post-rock guys, "Weekend" borrows from this or that, with some dance-punk-ish drums and some warm squeaks and beeps straight off a Detroit techno single. The light acoustic strums and clean bass that begin the song make it sound like The Sea and Cake of the past and then it gets almost dance-ready from there. The video's pretty brilliant too.
