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 19 – we are in British Columbia and the CBCR3 Song of the Day is…… (drum roll please)
I love this song. I love this band. And I love their bio on the CBC Radio 3 website – it’s brilliant:
If the Weakerthans had a love child with the Gaslight Anthem, and Joel Plaskett raised that child, you would have something close to Treelines. Their music can be described as an unassuming brand of indie rock, often painting a lyrical picture of anything from the old west, to wintry northern landscapes. There’s a quality about this band that can only seem to be described as sounding nostalgic and ‘unintentionally Canadian‘; something you can’t really pinpoint.
Did I mention how much I love this song? And how much I love this band?
