Ready For My Next Slice
The good folks over at Sunless Suitcase have brought my attention to a wonderful development: a new slice from Cake is due this October 5th.

Great news, indeed. I had just finished compiling a "best-of" comp from Cake's highly underrated four albums(see trackist below), and while taking in their sweet Sacremento sounds, anxiously awaited the release of album 5.

The wait is over...well, almost.

Tracklist from Slice-The Best of Cake:
Opera Singer
Ruby Sees All
The Distance
Never There
Friend Is A Four Letter Word
Short Skirt/Long Jacket
Commissioning A Symphony In C
Walk on By
You Part The Waters
When You Sleep
Rock 'n' Roll Lifestyle
Comfort Eagle
Italian Leather Sofa
Alpha Beta Parking Lot
Stickshifts And Safetybelts
Mr. Mastodon Farm
I Will Survive
Ain't No Good
Sad Songs And Waltzes

Top heavy with Motorcade songs, I know.
What can I say? I'm proud of the fact that I knew them before they sold out. Plus, Only when you have a Willie Nelson cover as the closing track do you have a true album.
