Sam Patch
Sam Patch
Born and raised in Guelph, Ontario, Tim Kingsbury began performing music as a child at his family church. As a teenager, he moved on to the local experimental, punk and indie rock scene. After years of creating music with various groups, Tim moved to Ottawa, and later left the province for Montreal, Quebec. There he joined the band Arcade Fire in 2002, where he continues to inspire and define the musical landscape of one of the world's biggest indie rock bands. A multi-instrumentalist and frequent collaborator with musicians across different genres, Tim is set to launch his new project in early 2017 under the name Sam Patch.
Thrills
Thrills
Thrills, the brainchild of Michael Mullin of Vacationer, is a Philadelphia-based electro indie rock band since 2014. During years of touring the US and UK, Mullin dedicated his time off to the studio in Philly, channeling his cosmic philosophy into Thrills. The group is a rearrangement of Vacationer, with input from Greg Altman, Kenny Vasoli, and Ryan Zimmaro, in addition to drummer J. Earl Martin. The debut title of the project, "Thrills of Constantly Collapsing," speaks to the concept of creation necessitating destruction. Experimental soundscapes echo this idea through brainy vocal samples, punk guitar, noisy texture, and dimensions of polyrhythm. These themes are artfully explored in the EP Memory Envelope.
