Default canadians kick *ss. Evidence: Patrick Watson

so my girlfriends parents own this store. they sell tvs and stereos... and are reportedly the only store in the entire world who sell only canadian music. this isn't a plug, so i'm not gonna try and get you to buy stuff from them, but they have this strange ability to just give me a cd they've chosen, knowing full well that i will probably love the sh*t out of it... which is hard, cuz i'm a snob.

anyway, Patrick Watson is one of those canadian artists. if you like radiohead, bjork, joni mitchell, flaming lips, nick drake, or rufus wainwright, you're probably gonna like this. h*ll, if you like none of those artists, you'll probably like this cat. he's something different for everyone, i think.

here's some vids:

live from a bathroom


live from a radioshow


an incredible video


another incredible video


do enjoy.

Fixed the youtube links for you. They don't work if you include the "v=".

Ah well, he's quite allright.
I've seen him perform live once a couple of years ago.
But I wouldn't call him a phenomenon .

I have his album Close to Paradise, which was recommended by a friend last summer. I have only played it twice though, I should listen again.

I'd love to see your signature/links too, but the huge and obnoxious ones have caused me to block all signatures.

Indeed...sometimes that helps get people interested. I know it helps for me, if I've never heard of something and the name doesn't particularly do anything for me (such is the case with people's names versus band names), artwork may interest me enough to have a listen.

Oh it does get me interested. But I'm not going to listen to it any different.
I saw this cover last year:

And since I am a pretty huge tape deck collector (I have 50+ of them, not sure now, I sold about 15 today...), I figured: This HAS to be good.
And it was...
