Jean-Guy Roy and Rob Mitchell of Federal Lights (Nicholas Friesen)
Federal Lights is the latest Winnipeg band to be featured in the Loft Sessions. All summer long, Manitoba Music is featuring great Manitoba bands in weekly live performance videos.
The setting for these videos is the very cool loft set above the offices of Manitoba Music. The hardwood, brick and timber make for great acoustics and the audio was captured by sound engineer Cam Loeppky. Chris Gaudry led the three camera video crew.
Federal Lights are clearly on a roll these days. This song, "I See Love" was in the running for CBC Music's Song of the Summer contest. And their first full-length CD, We Were Found in the Fog, is coming out on Aug. 27.
Still to come in the Loft Session, music videos by JP Hoe, Don Amero, Les Jupes, Mise en Scene, and Haunter.
