4.0 out of 5 stars And he can draw! May 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It took me about three listens to "get" this one, his last one grabbed me from the get-go, but this is a different deal. More stark, but more soulful too. A continued distillation of the themes Archer has pursued from the Coctails days till today. Where his debut album had a heady slightly euphoric 60's flavor, this moves into the more confusing terrain of the 70's. Archer struts his guitar-god status on Motorcycles, almost all of the songs have seasonal references; Summer's End, Final Season, Last Summer Days, and the themes of time passing are explored throughout. Shake is like Folk Implosion meets Burt Bacharach writing a song for, say, the Chi-Lites. And it works in a warm pre-discodelic soul-poppin' kinda way. While on tracks like I'll Be Waiting and Last Summer Days the spirit of Nick Drake is invoked. The eight minute Walking on the Farm is reminicent of Neil Young in his lost lonely endless rural highway way, but articulated like Richard Davies or Eric Matthews into some wailing noir moment of epiphany.

4.0 out of 5 stars Archer Does it Again! October 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ever since my all-time favorite group the Coctails went their seperate ways some years ago, I've been following the old members individual efforts. Archer- who served as more or less the frontman for the Coctails continues to display his individual skills as a performer and songwriter. The sounds that are produced in this album as well as his previous solo effort are very mature and contain excellently structured arrangements. It's perfect music to lay in bed thinking to or for walking down the street. While long gone is goofyiness that I love in the older Coctail recordings a very unique and elegant sound is the replacement. The music created by Archer and his friends in their many different groups over the years all deserve a listen to such as the Sea and Cake. There's a spark in the variety of music I can't begin to describe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introspective and quietly unique April 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album in a record store in Greenwhich Village in late October - it perfectly captures that quiet time when the sun is falling and the shadows of city buildings begin to grow longer.... Archer Prewitt puts together songs almost as beautiful as Nick Drake's, but written with a more mature, complex sensibility and delivered with a little more flair. HIs songs aren't anything like the Sea & Cake, at least not superficially; but they tap into the same cool, intricate, sweetly melancholy groove that band sustains on records like "The Biz." White Sky in particular is all about feeling young but older than your years - something the Sea & Cake seems all about too.
A great record - beautiful headphones music for the end of a good day.
