Day 13 (British Columbia) CBC R3 Song of the Day

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)

Sweetwater, The Matinee

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.
