Sebastian Blanck Alibi Coast Details

Although Sebastian was an early member of Black Dice (more than ten years ago!), Alibi Coast more resembles the timeless, poeticized folk-pop of Simon & Garfunkel, and in fact has far more in common with his paintings, brilliantly layered works that capture evocative scenes in motion.

Alibi Coast, which puts Sebastian’s gentle guitar work and gorgeous vocals in the spotlight (and which also features contributions from Caroline Polachek of Chairlift, Lia Ices, Becky Stark of Lavender Diamond and Olivia Mori), traces not one narrative arc but several, centering on the events of 2007, when Sebastian lost his brother Toby in a drowning accident.

The songs on Alibi Coast came to life with the help of co-producer Jorge Elbrecht (of Violens and Lansing-Dreiden) and were completed with Nicolas Vernhes at the Rare Book Room Studio in 2009 and 2010.
The album, whose cover features a painting by Sebastian’s wife, Isca Greenfield-Sanders (daughter of the photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders), marks the emergence of a striking new talent — just one listen and you’ll agree.
