    The Sea and Cake have uncorked a new song, and they're giving it away for free. "Up On the North Shore", off The Moonlight Butterfly, has all the trademark characteristics of the jazz-influenced crew from Chicago. Singer Sam Prekop still had plenty to say about the track, and it sounds like he put more thought into it than most publicists would have: "This song was written and recorded during the dead of winter under several feet of snow, Chicago style, a chore to just get out the door. Its somewhat sunny veneer belies this all too frigid clime. A faint cautionary tale, but still looking towards spring the song bounces, but with warnings: beware an overreaching optimism not so easily achieved. 'Crazily it fights the sound of nothing' hangs heavy in the air. The instrumental break after the first chorus felt entirely new for us, so overtly pop and dare I say just a whiff of 'retro.' Archer's faux slide guitar work in there brings a smile for me every time. I can't wait to play this song live."

    Grab it below for the low, low price of free-ninety-nine.
