Introducing…A Beacon School

A Beacon School is the first solo effort from Brooklyn-based Patrick J. Smith, a composer who’s played in Perfect Strangers, BLUFFING, and Fiasco. His debut LP Cola is out March 23 on Grind Select. On “Algernon,” premiering on The FADER today, Smith adds layers of soothing guitars and vocals with ease, reaching a build-up that feels natural, without ever fully peaking.
