On Wake Up Winnipeg episode 102 we welcomed Victoria-based band Acres of Lions to The Aimless & Andy Sessions down at UMFM Studios. 

We were lucky enough to have the the guys sit down and record three tracks with us only hours before they left for their set at The West End Cultural Centre here in Winnipeg on November the 19th.

Some of you who tuned in to Wake Up Winnipeg episode 102 would have heard the single "Best Day Ever" that we recorded while with the band. Though we expect to release the single soon in iTunes we thought we'd give our fans an extra bonus exclusively on YouTube.

This was the first time that we attempted to film a live video while recording a in-studio session and we couldn't be happier with the results. We fully expect to bring you more videos with each band that comes through UMFM Studios.

A big thanks goes out to Jeff, Tyson, Dan and Lewis from Acres of Lion for coming down and recording with us and for their help along the way. We hope to have them back to Winnipeg again soon to spend more time getting to know them. A lot of great fun and good memories came out of this session and we certainly had a enjoyable time recording them. 

Now for your viewing pleasure we bring you the debut of the Acres of Lions single Reaction recorded as part of The Aimless & Andy Sessions live from UMFM Studios:
