I don't know if I'm, but I've got a hunch that this Ambulance LTD band is really just a regrouping of the Sea & Cake. Think about it - no one's been paying any attention to Chicago over the past couple of years, so Sam Prekop and the rest of the group, fresh from breakups with their two-timing girlfriends, make the decision to re-locate to New York and wallow in post-shoegazer, post-relationship, post-indie-fame agony. Timed perfectly with the whole cult built around Lost In Translation (ever notice that most American films over the past years that have received critical blowjobs have been the films with the well-compiled soundtrack? Wes Anderson films, for example) and Kevin Shields re-emergence (from either 1) an Essex recording studio or 2) A decade long ecstasy binger with Mani and Bobbi Gillespie from Primal Scream). See you at O Patro Vys tonight, Montreal residents.
