The Sea and Cake’s fourth album The Fawn is back on vinyl. Pressed on clear with hi-melt blue vinyl and packaged in a tip-on gatefold jacket with a free download card.

With the core line up of Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt, Eric Claridge and John McEntire in place, the band recorded The Fawn after spending most of 1996 on the road with tours of the US, Europe and Japan. Whilst many of the songs were tried out first live, they soon became after thoughts of the studio. What is most striking about The Fawn is the continued exploration of recording techniques which has long been a trademark of the band. With each release they have remained very much a pop band, but have embraced technology to augment their sound. The band broadened their range of texture and sound (strings, percussion and synthesized sounds) and spent more time in the studio than ever before. Refining and redefining the songs to make it their most diverse and accomplished record to date.
