Ok, let’s rock. With Sacramento, California’s most unlikely export, the fine heady border-crossing rock n’ roll of the ever reliable Cake. You can never quite tell with lead singer and lyricist John McCrea, where his cynical humor ends and a hopeful idealism begins. And in that flux lies a magic that sets their songs apart. The band matches his wit with a musical quirkiness that skillfully teeters on the brink of farce, but never stops doing the essential job of rocking out. I love this song.
