After a decade as a band, it really has been an interesting journey for Patrick Watson and his cohorts. The band already played to over 100,000 people at the 2009 Montreal Jazz Festival, performed in front of a full orchestra in 2011 in Amsterdam and again in Watson’s hometown of Montreal in 2013, they also performed two songs in Wim Wenders’s 3D epic Every Thing Will Be Fine, and in 2015 released their most solid record yet, Love Songs For Robots.
It marks Patrick Watson’s 5th release since Watson first galvanized this “temporary project” in 2006 with the release of his critically acclaimed and Polaris Music Prize winning debut Close To Paradise. This calling card release would loudly announce his initial presence going on to sell well over 225,000 units worldwide. His latest installment in his already impressive body of work follows up on his utterly stunning 2012 release Adventures In Your Own Backyard. Signatures like his hushed falsetto croon remains to be the vessel that transports his vast emotional depths, but Love Songs For Robots proudly shows Watson sailing out into uncharted waters once again.
