Cake Invests In A Solar Groove For Their Studio, Latest Album

One of my favorite bands, Cake, has pulled a page out of Jack Johnson’s playbook and taken their recording studio in Sacramento, California off-grid with a new solar array. “Working on a new album, we feel satisfaction in the common denominator of together embracing the unlimited resource of the sun,” they wrote on their website.

While I’ve enjoyed the band’s music for years (you might best know them from their song “Going The Distance”), I never realized how environmentally-conscious they are. There are very few other groups out there that talk about Jatropha, “Cradle to Cradle”, Car pooling, the detriments of bottled water and many other topics on their News page. Hell, they’re even quick to debunk the whole off-shore oil drilling scheme currently being proposed by Republicans. Brilliant.

So kudos to Cake for moving beyond discussion and actually addressing their own impact. A solar-powered recording studio may not change the world, but the music coming out of it certainly sounds a lot sweeter.

Check out more — including a cool video made by the group at their official site here.
