Just Another Ordinary Day
Originally self-released in limited quantities in 2003, Just Another Ordinary Day is the first set of Patrick Watson recordings featuring the band’s current lineup. Fans will find plenty to love, as it features plenty of ethereal soundscapes and also some of the band’s most accessible music.
Just Another Ordinary Day is Patrick Watson's debut album, which showcases the band harnessing the atmospheric rock sound that they would come to perfect on 2006's breakthrough album, Close to Paradise.
The Montreal singer-songwriter’s debut album comes with no shortage of big ideas. Bolstered by the sweeping title cut, listeners are presented with an album resembling a cinematic slow burn that, like much of the material here, flirts with traditional pop architecture.
At the time this album was made, the band was playing regular two-set gigs at the now defunct but legendary Cafe Sarajevo in Montreal, drawing bigger and bigger crowds. Fans of both Wooden Arms and Close to Paradise will find plenty to love hear, as it features plenty of ethereal soundscapes and also some of the band’s most accessible music.
