Sam Prekop

A longtime pillar in the Chicago underground community and architect of the post-rock sound, Sam Prekop first gained renown at the helm of Shrimp Boat before becoming the leader of the Sea and Cake, whose fusion of styles both in and out of rock was both creative and experimental while remaining highly listenable. Prekop holds considerable stature in the Chicago scene, so it isn't surprising that when he released his self-titled debut solo LP in 1999 (on Thrill Jockey Records, itself a cornerstone in the Chicago music scene), it featured an impressive supporting cast, including Chad Taylor of the Chicago Underground Duo, Josh Abrams of Town and Country, Jim O'Rourke, and the Sea and Cake's Archer Prewitt. The album played like a subtler, more organic version of the Sea and Cake, blending elements of African rhythms with soul, jazz, and pop. The Sea and Cake remained an active band after its release, and his follow-up, Who's Your New Professor, didn't arrive until 2005. Prekop's third album, Old Punch Card, took a turn away from his regular fare toward an almost completely electronic palette. The instrumental album was released in 2010 by Thrill Jockey and followed up five years later by The Republic, another collection of electronic instrumentals made with modular synthesizers, drum machines, and other various synthetic elements. Half the pieces on The Republic were initially composed as a score for a show by video installation artist David Hartt. ~ Stacia Proefrock, Rovi

Is it just me, or does Sam Prekop sound like Lou Reed?? At least it seems so on the track "Jacking The Ball". Unbelievable coincidence. . . ! !

Sam's solo efforts go great with my morning coffee, especially when around the campfire.

I think that my Pandora QuickMix is getting better. Listened tonight and didn't want to go to bed - it was that good! Listening right now to So Shy, on Sam Prekop's eponymous 1999 release.

I saw them play in London with a band called Pram, who opened for them. It was packed and one of the best shows I've ever seen.
