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 13 – we are in British Columbia for a fifth night and the CBCR3 Song of the Day is…… (drum roll please)
I first discovered The Matinee (from Vancouver, BC) last year and it was instant love (damn i love me some twang in my music!). In fact, they made me break my own rules on my 2013 CBC R3 playlist and I added 2 of their songs (as opposed to the traditional 1 song/artist) because I just couldn’t decide. Sweetwater was one of them; the second was L’Absinthe. My 10 year old loves that song and I often hear him singing about ‘dancing on the tables and writing on the walls..”
Today I chose Sweetwater as a dedication to our amazing float down the sweetwater of the Penticton River Channel.
