    You know that gentle feeling of falling asleep so effortlessly that in the process you almost find yourself resting between two states of being; consciousness and alertness? That precarious sensation seems the physical equivalent of Patrick Watson's music. It transcends the simplicity of hearing and listening and permeates through you, leaving you drifting into new realms of feeling. It's the Montreal band leader's combination of smoky vocals, seemingly fit for a jazz club in the 40s, and the instrumentation around him that offers nearly medicinal effects. There has just always been something beautiful happening on his records-- so much so that the band received a Polaris Music Prize for their 2009 album Wooden Arms. Now, we have Adventures In Your Own Backyard, once again combining the smoothness of Watson's vocals with similarly ambient music doused perfectly in percussion, acoustic guitar riffs as well as those from a brass guitar.
