Recording: The Wilderness of Manitoba

Artist: The Wilderness of Manitoba

Song: Morning Sun*

Recorded at Artscape Gibraltar Point (New Traditions Festival), June 30, 2012.

The Wilderness of Manitoba - Morning Sun

Full review to follow. A lovely day on the Island for the New Traditions Festival, organized by Whippersnapper Gallery, the Fedora Upside Down music collective and Artscape Gibraltar Point. A botched "late night ferry" service put a damper on things at day's end, but there were plenty good memories. A set composed of almost all new material really whets the appetite for the band's sophomore release, forthcoming this fall. The new ones featured the band's signature vocal harmonies, but a couple went in a slightly more rocked-up direction than previously. There was no title called out for this one with its "show me, show me, show me" "jolie, jolie, jolie" refrain.

* Thanks to a commenter for passing along the title to this one!


  1. I think this song is "Morning Sun" and the refrain is "jolie, jolie, jolie".

  2. That sounds right :)
    Happy, happy, happy, happy. Happy.
