As a tribute to Canada and my love for Canadian Indie music, I’ve not only created special provincial playlists for my Cross-Canada road trip but I will also be featuring a:
“CBCR3 Song of the Day”
Every day I will showcase a CBCR3 artist from the province where we happen to be travelling. (the rules are simple; simply because I’m too tired for fancy)
Today is Day 9 and we are in British Columbia for our first night and the CBCR3 Song of the Day is…… (drum roll please)
I love this band!!! Said the Whale is a Vancouver based Indie band formed in 2007. They won a Juno for new group of the year in 2011. I chose their song, Emerald Lake for the obvious (we went to Emerald Lake today) but also for the lyrics, “what a fine life we are living.” Ain’t it the truth.
I think my all-time favourite song of theirs is “Black Day in December” (which made my 2012 CBC R3 playlist) but last year “I Love You” which made in on my 2013 playlist. I also really enjoy their West Coast Christmas EP (very dark and beautiful).
I implore you to check them out – you will not be disappointed!!
Til Tomorrow (or actually later today since I’m a day late with this post),
