Patrick Watson...

More songwriting excellence from the great country to our north. I believe that Patrick Watson is from Montreal and if you buy into the idea that that city produces a specific sound (i.e. the recorded output of Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade, etc.) then Watson is part and parccel of that aesthetic. His songs are big epic sweeping things that unfold slowly as they metaphorize from small innocent kernels of struggline notes into brooding enveloping sweeping winged birds of prey. But nice. He sounds at times a bit like Chris Martin but don't hold that against him, the songs are excellent. He's one to watch in 2007.

2 songs from Mr. Watson:

Luscious Life
