Sam Prekop & John McEntire – “A Ghost At Noon”

Sam Prekop & John McEntire – “A Ghost At Noon”

The Sea And Cake’s Sam Prekop and his bandmate John McEntire, also of Tortoise, are two titans of cerebral Chicago post-rock. They’ve teamed up on a new album called Sons Of due out next month on Thrill Jockey, which emerged from a series of improvised shows in Europe in 2019. Out today, the nearly eight-minute “A Ghost Of Noon” is culled directly from one of those gigs. It’s a flickering, burbling synthesized journey with a serenity that could almost be described as new age if not for all its playful busyness. Listen to it below.

01 “A Ghost Of Noon”
02 “Crossing At The Shallow”

Sons Of is out 7/22 on Thrill Jockey.
