adventures on the road
how much do i love this song? this skateboarding video? everything about it is purr-fection.
it's poetry in motion. from the song to the filmmaking, to free-style skateboarder kilian martin.
when i first saw this video, i was immediately captured by the music and it's no surprise. the voice belongs to none other than patrick watson. he who wrote and sang to build a home with the cinematic orchestra. but this song is something else. the bugles, the guitars, the very spanish-ness of it all. it makes me want to be on an open and dusty highway somewhere.
i was struck at how it reminded me of another spanish-tinged song that also evoked images of the open road for me, that of crooked fingers' islero.
this song, adventures in your own backyard, is off watson's latest release. and as fate would have it, as i was looking into more songs from this album online, i found out that patrick watson will be playing in vancouver.
so... in my tiny fists of fury, i have a ticket to see his show at the vogue theatre on june 14! all the songs that i've heard from him thus far makes my spirit soar, so i would, of course, want to see him perform live.
