Patrick Watson with Arborea
This journey begins with that Montreal-based band of travelers, composed of Patrick Watson (vocals, piano, harmonium), Robbie Kuster (drums), Mishka Stein (bass), and Simon Angell (guitar). After touring the wild hillsides of Canada, Patrick Watson embarks on a whole new journey in 2006 with the release of Close to Paradise. Receiving national and international acclaim as well as collaborating and sharing the stage with various renowned artists along the ride, they're ready to gaze at the rest of the world.
Having a penchant for surreal acoustic landscapes, both organic and electronic, the band releases in April of 2009 Wooden Arms. Through this new album, the band scrapbooks their new songs, narrating the journey of a tour which took them to all four corners of the globe.
"Adventures In Your Own Backyard is a record made at home with lots of love. After our past tours and last recordings around the world, we decided to bring this album home. We set up our instruments in my loft and over a year, came in and out, just pressed "record" and hoped for the best. We recorded most of the music live, "off the floor", trying to capture what people like about our shows, which can be difficult to transcribe in a studio sometimes. We also realized that when you're making a record, it's sometimes easier to make one that's fun to work on but not necessarily one you would listen to. We noticed that records we love to listen to are more simple than the ones we've made, so we tried are best to make an album that was as easy and fun to do than it is to listen to. We decided to make a simple and grounded record where each single sound has to be a necessity, or cut. The adventure aspect consisted into bringing a little sugar to people's home, inspired by Ennio Morricone's soundtracks.
