Patrick Watson Playlist

Patrick Watson showed up on my radar when he/they won the 2007 Polaris Prize (Canada’s version of the Mercury Prize), nudging out Feist (!) and Arcade Fire (!).  Much as I love the early work, this trippy, layered mash of synth and acoustic is my favourite Patrick Watson album.  The songs are not exactly hummable, not that that’s a bad thing, with the atmospheric shades of Pink Floyd.  This is mood music, with a lovely threnodic, whispery, blurriness about it.

Read Part Two of “If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen”…

Read Part Three of “If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen”…

And make this recipe for mashed potato biscuits…
