Patrick Watson

Wolf, bear and horse bands are so last year. This year it's all about pandas & Patricks. Not to be confused with the UK's Patrick Wolf (okay, I take back the part about the wolf bands), Patrick Watson is a Montreal singer-songwriter/pianist that will have you thinking Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley, M Ward and even Pink Floyd. Already a big star in his hometown, he was just nominated for Canada's "New Artist Of The Year" in the Juno Awards and now he's "sharing chart space with Nelly Furtado".

The song "The Storm" streaming at his MySpace is one of my favorites. Three MP3s to download above, and here's the video for "The Great Escape"...

Listen to more of Patrick's 2006 Canadian album "Close to Paradise" at the album's own website, and see him when he comes to an intimate venue near you. In Manhattan it's Mercury Lounge tomorrow (March 1st). From March 2nd-10th he's on tour with Elvis Perkins. That includes Elvis' Brooklyn date on March 4th. On March 15th Patrick hits Austin for SXSW. All tour dates below...

If Watson and the Besnard Lakes hookup drunk for a jam somewhere in Austin, bust out your mini-discs for the Beach Boys covers...

Julian Cope on Mac:

"I gots to tell y’all that when I heard the other day that the Bunnymen’s Ian McCulloch is writing his autobiography, I nearly shat my undies laughing so hard (good job I don’t wear any!); Ian Mac write a book? A man for whom completing a single song on his own is a struggle of Everest the Hard Way proportions is hardly going to write a book. Ian, I’m speechless at your continued arrogance in the face of no evidence whatsoever. In my opinion, you’ve been a dried-up shell of a husk of a man since just after OCEAN RAIN, so don’t embarrass us all with your ludicrous claims that you’re gonna write an autobiography. Two words… No Way. Writing a book involves discipline and hard work, two things you never nailed in the past and never will. As I heard it, you even said in the press that your book will be better than the Bible. Well, in two ways it may well be like the Bible: 1) it’ll be full of half-truths and outright lies, and 2) it’ll have been written by umpteen uncredited writers and you’ll name yourself solely as its author. There you go, dumkopf, I just handed you the map: don’t even bother buying yourself a pen, son; just do what you’ve always done throughout your career; get someone else to do most of the work then claim all the credit yourself. I even have a title already: MAC USER. And with that, I shall sweep off into the Beltane sunset. Yowzah!"
