Bruce Peninsula - Why Can't I

Following and expanding on the template of last year's successful festival, Wavelength returned to the island with a meticulously-executed event that included an exciting range of music and a beach full of art beside festival headliner Lake Ontario. It also managed to be a stress-reducing rather than a stress-inducing time — rather like a weekend at the cottage, even if the city was just out of view.

As a new album creeps slowly closer, Bruce Peninsula focused on their newer tunes, including this smouldering soul number lead by Misha Bower. In true BP style, though this is all slow-dance elegance at the start, some sonic complications sneak up on you by the time it ends.

* Subject to confirmation — I do believe this was the title as called out from the stage.
