Halifax Nova Scotia alternative rock band Wintersleep has become one of my favourite bands. I mean, I loved their melodic intensity since I first heard "Weighty Ghost", "Archeologists" and "Oblivion" from their 2007 debut Welcome To The Night Sky, but seeing the band live and witnessing their musical brilliance across New Inheritors, Hello Hum and this year's The Great Detachment has pushed me over the edge.

So when I saw them on the bill for the Sunday of Riverfest Elora, I was super-excited to see the band in full festival mode. Their songs are definitely big enough to fill a festival main stage, I thought. And I was certainly right.

This was my second time shooting them. If you like, click here for my pics from their show at Lee's Palace earlier this year.

Here are some of my favourites from their set:

"Santa Fe"

"Archeologists"

"Weighty Ghost"

"Spirit"

"Freak Out"

"Amerika", which they dedicated to the humans who participated in the communal experience we all had the night before as we watched The Tragically Hip's last live show in Kingston Ontario.

"Laser Beams"
