Editors’ Notes Following some two years winning hearts on the live circuit with their coolly R&B-infused electro-soul, Winston Surfshirt’s debut album almost feels too accomplished to be a debut. For everything going on—a full horn section, rich synth layers, and a blend of singing and rap—Sponge Cake feels remarkably subtle, all restrained melodies and understated funk. From the raspy sensuality of trip-hop-influenced “FreeForYou” to the slinky “TwennyFive”, featuring the sole guest artist, Florida MC Eric Biddiness, Sponge Cake is a tremendous first offering from the Sydney six-piece.
