Artist: Cake
Description:
Personnel: John McCrea (vocals, piano); Xan McCurdy (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, synthesizer); Gabriel Nelson (electric guitar, bass guitar); Vincent Di Fiore (trumpet, euphonium, keyboards); Aaron Redfield, Tom Monson, Pete McNeal, Paulo Baldi (drums). Audio Mixers: Pat Olguin; Cake. Cake's first album since 2004's Pressure Chief, Showroom of Compassion finds this impressively earnest band redefining the meaning of independant--the album was recorded in a studio powered entirely by solar energy and delivered without even so much as an electric bill's worth of corporate involvement.

Editorial Reviews:
Entertainment Weekly (p.78) - "Lead singer John McCrea unspools dry observations in his usual deadpan tone....The resulting confection tastes remarkably fresh..." -- Grade: B+ Alternative Press (p.86) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "'Long Time' shows off their mariachi-funk trumpet hooks....SHOWROOM is classic Cake..." Billboard (p.48) - "'What's Now Is Now' delivers existential philosophy, and 'Teenage Pregnancy' is an instrumental in which classical piano flows into bluesy grit."
