BIOGRAPHY

Cola, is the full-length debut from Brooklyn multi­-instrumentalist Patrick J Smith, whose previous credits include playing with Modern Rivals, BLUFFING and Fiasco. Having spent the last year working on a new project called Maxband with Max from Parquet Courts, A Beacon School marks Smith’s first entirely solo effort, allowing him to indulge his every musical impulse.  To commemorate a year of its digital release, Cola will be offered on vinyl for the first time (in partnership with House Arrest) with three unreleased songs from the original sessions incorporated in the track-listing. Darting between genres while maintaining an addictive pop aesthetic and dreamy atmosphere, new cuts, “Glue”, “Fade In Nylon” and “Cut Thru” give the album a newfound sense of completion, enhancing its decadent quality.
