No rest for me, no rest for you. Gotta stay on top of the herd in case a few little dogies slip the fence. They’re gettin’ a little too frisky with the barbed wire.
Let’s round ’em up.
Texas has a long history with R&B, and Khalid is the latest Lone Star native with a sweet voice and an American dream. And he is, in fact, an American teen.
He invites you to vibe with him. You should accept.
One thing’s for certain about Arcade Fire: their members do release some mighty fine solo work. This album comes from the heart of bassist/guitarist Tim Kingsbury who dubs it “weird rock.” If weird means awesome, then sure.
In case you’re as unfamiliar as I with this tiny corner of American history, Kingsbury named the band after Sam Patch, known as “The Yankee Leaper”, who became the first famous American daredevil after successfully jumping from a raised platform into the Niagara River near the base of Niagara Falls in 1829. (Thanks, Wikipedia!)
This is simply a different kind of animal.
