Song for snowmelt: “To Build a Home” by The Cinematic Orchestra

The Cinematic Orchestra‘s To Build a Home feels patriotic even though it has nothing to do with Canada. This video may have been shot on the canals of Amsterdam, but it feels like pure Canadiana. From their 2007 album Ma Fleur, this song carries the same emotion as tracks by Antony and the Johnsons and Bon Iver. Mostly, I’m just glad that winter’s finally over.
