Sam Patch (Arcade Fire’s Tim Kingsbury) – “St. Sebastian”
Tim Kingsbury has been playing guitar, bass, and keyboards in Arcade Fire since 2003. And next year, he’ll venture out on his own with a solo album called Yeah You, And I, which he’ll release under the name Sam Patch. Kingsbury recorded the album himself and played most of the instruments, though he did have some help. Basia Bulat sings on seven of the album’s eight songs, and Arcade Fire drummer Jeremy Gara plays on six of them. Tortoise members John McEntire and Doug McCombs also show up on one song. Lead single “St. Sebastian” is a surging, searching indie rock song with a bit of Stereolab in it. Check it out below.
Yeah You, And I is out 2/17 on Dep Records.
