Morning Sun-The Wilderness of Manitoba

Such bliss!  Oracle loves the Wilderness of Manitoba!

I get very excited about new music of this calibre.  This is a band that stole my heart over two years ago and their music still amazes and brings a smile to my face.  Check it out their new album Island of Echoes.
