Patrick Watson's Adventures In My Own Backyard is an album whose brilliance tends to sneak up on you. He opts for subtle sweeps of polished piano, soft colors, and sure-handed songwriting. It is contemporary music that glows and grows in unexpected but not unwelcome directions, affording - as the title might suggest - interesting angles at the everyday. And if the video below is any indication, his live shows look just as appealing.
See Watson open for estimable Andrew Bird tonight, outdoors at The Met in Pawtucket, R.I., in what is sure to be a memorable evening. http://themetri.com/events/andrew-bird/
