One of those artists whose music I seem to return to again and again, there is a certain inexplicable quality to Patrick Watson's music that seems to elevate him above most of his contemporaries: a subtlety of touch perhaps? A sense of arrangement/delivery? An ear for melody maybe? It could be that any attempts to deconstruct its 'magical quality' are counterproductive, but needless to say it's definitely at play here, with this precursor to his forthcoming LP 'Adventures In Your Own Backyard'. Lovely!
