Birthday Cake

Everything was ready for Noisenarcs’ birthday party.

Everyone from Noisenarcs’ preschool class was invited.  It turns out that Noisenarcs is afraid of magicians, but for entertainment there was a moon bounce and a popcorn maker.  Plenty of juice and snacks had been laid out.  Balloons were tied to the mailbox and the other children were beginning to arrive.  What was I forgetting?

The cake!

There wasn’t much time so the recipe would have to be simple…simplistic, even.  I dusted off my big book of ’90s alternative recipes and flipped to the Cake section.  Ah yes, here was the formula I was after: lazy, half-sung vocals; junkstore guitar riffs; a dash of trumpet and some random shouts for color and flavoring…

Mmm. Gimmicky.  Happy Birthday, Noisenarcs!

Cake, “Easy To Crash”

Cake’s first studio release in 7 years (I would have guessed 13 years), Showroom of Compassion (BUY), dropped yesterday.

    Ha. The album is pretty… okay. A fitting addition to our birthday.

    “Cake’s Showroom Of Compassion, the band’s first new album in seven years, has debuted on the Billboard charts at No. 1—which is certainly a commendable achievement for Cake. Unfortunately it’s also yet another sign that the music industry is in steep decline, considering it managed to pull off that feat with only 44,000 copies sold, a new record low for a chart-topping album. (It takes that questionable honor from Taylor Swift, who moved only 52,000 copies of Speak Now last week for the lowest-selling No. 1 album since SoundScan began keeping these figures in 1991.) ” [The A.V.
