Patrick Watson – Better In The Shade [Streaming]

Today, Montreal’s Patrick Watson dropped the 7th release called Better in the Shade via Secret City Records.
While this is more than an EP than a full-length.
Wonderful collaborations from La Force and Sea Oleena (YA!).
Better In The Shade is very emotionally musically than lyrically and still maintaining that Patrick Watson-ism.
Wanting more but this will do for now!

About Better In The Shade:
Better In The Shade is about negotiating a world where you don’t know what’s real anymore.
“I really spent a lot of time reading to improve my lyrics for this record”, he says.
“I was very inspired by Jesus’ Son by Denis Johnson, The Waves by Virginia Woolf and Fever Dream by Samanta Schweblin.

The lyrics are a collection of little thoughts that were pacing in my head.
We worked hard on rebuilding the tones of our arrangements and we brought a bigger electronic component to the music” he continues.
“With the addition of modular synths, we were able to find a warmer and more touching approach to the electronics, that feel as acoustic as the rest of the instruments and move like liquid.

Basically, I went back to school for the last two years to be able to bring something new ha-ha. Andrew Barr from the Barr Brothers joined us on drums for this record, it’s a pleasure to play music with such a great musician”.
