The Wilderness of Manitoba - “Orono Park”
Last night, I had the pleasure of seeing The Wilderness of Manitoba in NYC. Specializing in ethereal indie folk, these Canadians create, in my mind, perfect winter music. Crisp and melodic, with a touch of melancholy. For those of you not living in the northern hemisphere, I suggest you check out this track in a few months. Or not. This is a really great song and it’s off their album When You Left The Fire.
The first two minutes of the song start off with guitar, banjo and perfectly harmonized howls. You can tell that this song is going somewhere by the gradual intensity that builds. It’s not everyday you can simply describe a song as ‘beautiful’ but lucky for us, today happens to be one of those days.
