My friend once went off on a tangent while discussing how a Portishead concert resonated in her body. She told me of an experiment conducted by the military where psychologists discovered a tone that, when played, made the study subjects shit their pants. I was inspired.
This is a collection of the music that soundtracks my life and moves me... in my soul, not my bowels.
Patrick Watson is my man.
Back in the fall of 2007 I went to his show with my freshly broken heart scooped up in my hands. He curled over his piano, I curled up in my seat, and he wispy vocal hugged me for an hour and a half.
Then he breathtakingly captured walking away from love lost and the feeling of losing that place where you didn’t feel alone in one of my forever favourites, the Cinematic Orchestra’s “To Build a Home”. You can see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjjc59FgUpg&ob=av2n
Now he gives me this tune, another story of love, rolling through infatuation to questioning…
“Carried our love in cups to go and trouble seemed so small.”
“Started as lovers don’t know where it’s gonna end…”
Patrick Watson’s new album drops on April 16 in Canada. I just bought a ticket to see him in Vancouver in June. Excited on both fronts. You can download this track here: http://www.adventuresinyourownbackyard.com/
