Rachel from Black*Eiffel and I have pretty much identical taste in music and I always get so excited when i see her Music Monday post waiting in my reader. A few weeks ago she posted "To Build A Home" by The Cinematic Orchestra and I loved it immediately. It is perfectly haunting and emotional, and therefore has of course been used on a bunch of TV shows, including the ultimate heart-ripper-outer Grey's Anatomy. But I just couldn't get that voice out of my head, and it turns it belongs to Canadian singer-songwriter Patrick Watson. His songs are just beautiful - most of them simple piano or guitar and voice, but so broad and expansive, and so expressive. A few of them remind me of Tom Waits, a few of Radiohead, but they are definitely all his own. Here are some of my favourites, including his appearance with The Cinematic Orchestra - let me know what you think.
