We’re a Canadian music magazine, so naturally all our Friday Playlists have a distinct Canadian flavour. This week’s playlist is like a twice baked potato; all Canadian artists with songs about Canada. Some of the songs are obvious choices because they reference the word Canada in the title. Others talk about specific places in Canada, such as Edmonton, in songs by The Rural Alberta Advantage and The Darcys. “Cold” by Beta Frontiers may not be about a specific place in Canada, but come on, Canada is freezing in the winter.
Grab some buds (the friendly kind and carbonated alcoholic type), press play and enjoy the Canada Day long weekend (assuming you take Monday off, which you probably should because it’s summer and Tuesday is a holiday anyways).
