Cake Essentials

When Cake lean into the brawny blues hook of “The Distance,” you can't help but cheer for the left-field California rockers and the song's haunted protagonist. Since the early '90s, they've been crafting weird grooves that hit on funk, garage, lounge, and numerous other styles. Singer John McCrea's deadpan sing/speak elevates the silliness of the toe-tapping “Sheep Go to Heaven.” And Vince DiFiore's explosive, expressive trumpet is their secret weapon, blasting through the finale of their vibe-heavy cover of Gloria Gaynor's “I Will Survive.”
