You love The Strumbellas, right?! And you want to hear them on the radio, right?! Well, guess what? You can make this happen by hounding your your local station and letting them know! Get your fingies tapping on that smart device, and social media the heck out of your local station to tell them that you won’t make it through another hour of non-stop hits without hearing ‘Sailing’! Indie 88 in Toronto is already on it, but it’s time for our western station friends to go in on this stellar jam. Here are some examples of how I would (and will) be hollering:
If I don’t hear Sailing by @thestrumbellas on @sonic1029 soon, I’m gonna EXPLODE!
Hey @X929 many crying puppies request you play Sailing by @thestrumbellas!
Sailing by @thestrumbellas = the tightest jam. @ThePeak should play this!
Just listened @theStrumbellas song “Sailing” on repeat a gazillion times. @Sonic1029 when can i hear it pon di radio? http://music.cbc.ca/#/artists/The-Strumbellas
This song is top of my playlist – @TheStrumbellas “Sailing”. @X929 – you should play this
Whoa, biggest beard in Canada might be in @theStrumbellas. @ThePeak you need more beard in your playlist – Play “Sailing” http://music.cbc.ca/#/artists/The-Strumbellas
Stay tuned for an epic arctic (well, Sudbury. That’s pretty arctic, I’d say) expedition music video for this song from The Strumbellas, coming soon.
The Strumbellas made it two for two yesterday, when “We Still Move On Dance Floors” got a Juno Award nomination for Roots & Traditional Group Album of the Year! That’s two Strumbellas’ albums, two Juno nominations, if you’re keeping track. Holy moly. Go for the Threepeat, gang! The Strumbies (as I’ve just decided to call them right now) are rubbing elbows with some damn fine company in the category, and we can’t wait to go to Winnipeg for the annual awards extravaganza so we can also rub lots of elbows… in a sexy way. Our Six Shooter crew usually does it up pretty big at the Junos, rolling around in a fancy limo and stuff, but I think this year we should either a) buy a cheap El Camino and put a hot tub in the back of it, OR b) go a little bit fancier and rent a Mini Cooper so we can go all clown car steez with everyone crammed in there. Any reader opinions on which option you think we should go for are VERY welcome. Please send us many many many emails on the subject. We have a lot of spare time, and would love to consider your feedback thoroughly.
The Strumbellas play The Dakota every Wednesday in February, with opening bands and special guests and more more more (did we mention there’s still a Grand Prize of a trip for two to fabulous Lindsay, ON up for grabs? Buy something, get a scratch card, win a vacation to somewhere even snowier!). They will also hit the road with Corb Lund in April across Ontario. AND, more good news, we now have the vinyl edition of We Still Move On Dance Floors available from www.sixshooterrecords.com or at an esteemed indie retailer near you.
Starting November 12, 2013, iTunes Canada is offering the epic tune for free. Get it here, now!
