Adventures In Your Own Backyard

Patrick Watson

Adventures In Your Own Backyard

LabelDomino Records
VertriebGoodtogo
VÖ-Datum20.4.2012

Leben ist, was du draus machst. Im Hinterhof könnten sich grau an grau an grau die Mülltonnen reihen,  schmutzige Plastiktüten und klapprige Fahrräder vergessen vor sich hin rosten. Oder es könnten dort Schatzkisten des Alltags stehen, Plastiktüten mit bunten Blättern einen Walzer im Wind tanzen und viel befahrene Drahtesel sich mit knarzenden Speichen von sonnigen Reisen über Stock und Stein erzählen. Alles eine Frage der Einstellung. Der Vorstellungskraft. Und ein bisschen auch eine der Motivation.

An der von Patrick Watson gibt es nichts zu mäkeln. Im Gegensatz vieler seiner Songwriter-Kollegen ersann der Kanadier mit seiner Drei-Mann-Band im Rücken seit 2003 immer wieder neue Mittel, seine Stücke abseits des üblichen emotionalen Akustikgitarrengemauschels zu etwas Besonderem, etwas Abenteuerlicherem zu machen. So konnte es schon mal vorkommen, dass er statt an einem klassischen Seiteninstrument an den Speichen eines Fahrrads zupfte oder ein Bandkollege mit seine Akustikgitarre mit zwei Löffeln bearbeitete, um einen ganz speziellen Sound zu erreichen.

Solche musikalischen Extravaganzen finden sich auf Adventures In Your Own Backyard zwar nicht, dafür strotzt das vierte Band-Album nur so vor fantasievoll gesponnener Kompositionen zwischen verträumtem Kammer-Pop, luftig-leichtem Indie-Folk und einem Hauch Varieté. In Patrick Watsons selbstgeschaffenem kunterbunten Wunderland ist Platz für Instrumente aller Art. Da begehren vereinzelt sägende Streicher auf, da klimpert ein liebliches Glockenspiel, da gibt es Klavier, Flöten, Schlagzeug, Bass. Seine Bläser lässt er – wild und röhrend – wie Elefanten klingen, seine eigene Stimme treibt er bis in unerwartete Höhen an.

Adventures In Your Own Backyard ist von Anfang bis Ende durchdacht, melodiös-elegant und im Ganzen ein verspielt-charmantes Stück Musik. Für manch einen könnte und sollte Patrick Watson sprudelnder Quell der Inspiration sein – er bietet genügend kreative Ansätze für alle.
