Film At 11: Patrick Watson

The video for “Adventures In Brooklyn,” off Adventures In Your Own Backyard (Domino), is a voyage into the Brooklyn of your hippest dreams. Patrick Watson’s piano cascades as the camera pans over abstract art, musty, restored buildings and small-scale acoustic concerts. It’s what your friend describes when he tells you, “You need to get up here, man—it’s where everything’s happening and the people are great.” It feels casually intimate yet romantically grandiose in the scope of its content. Watson’s gentle acoustic melody is the perfect accompaniment. This one’s more than eight minutes, so make sure you have some time. Watch it below.
