My Friend the Chocolate Cake have finished recording their 5th studio album, tentatively titled "The Home Improvements Album". Mostly recorded at the Enormodome, although the band also spent a day at Dex putting 4 tracks down live, with a certain dose of improv in there...leading to a couple of tracks that have a slightly different sound. Songs of carnivals, bustling mad instrumentals, suburban pictures, lifes, weather coast in the Solomons and an adolescent love song called Pentacostal Girl, some textural moments where the string grind and the piano sustains...a couple of belting pop songs.
