Vancouver's Mother Mother have had a special place in my music library ever since I first heard "Touch Up" from their 2007 debut of the same name. The band is a live powerhouse and deliver their quirky and utterly unique indie pop tunes with an unstoppable energy.

Their set concentrated on more recent releases, but gave the crowd the hits they craved and included up to the minute new tunes. They even punctuated a tune with Zeppelin's "Dazed and Confused" and made sure that the local audience know that they didn't just pop in to play their tunes and leave. They'd seen the gorge. They visited the quarry. And they'd been to town. And they'd never forget it.

And in what's become a music festival certainty, the foreboding skies opened up during the latter part of their set. No one let it figuratively dampen their sprits and the crowd lapped up the tunes, even as roadies covered the keyboards with garbage bags to try to keep the electronics dry.

Here are some stand-out tunes, and personal favourites, from their set.

"Body of Years"

"Monkey Tree"

"O My Heart"

"Let's Fall in Love"

"The Drugs"

"Hayloft"

"Love Stuck"
