Arcade Fire and, in a more avant-garde sense, Panda Bear have been on the forefront of the baroque pop/chamber pop revivals of the last decade. Recent Domino Records
signed artist Patrick Watson
is releasing a new album entitled, Adventures in Your Own Backyard
, on 5/1. If this track below, "Into Giants," is any indication, Patrick has taken some inspiration from the dramatic pop undertones of "Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)" and crafted a beautiful song in the wake. Funny that his first LP dropped around the same time the Fire were still demoing.
