Largely overlooked outside of their home country of Canada, Wintersleep have had themselves a pretty busy 2008. The band started the year by winning the Juno Award(Canada's Grammys) for Best New Artist for their critically acclaimed album, Welcome to the Night Sky . The LP which has been out since late 2007 finally saw it's US release just last week. Speaking of the US, the band are currenty out on an extensive tour of the US with Portugal the Man and Earl Greyhound, before heading over to Europe in December for some dates.
This weeks choice for 'Video & Song Of the Week' comes from the Much Music Video Award winning track off 'Welcome to the Night Sky', "Weighty Ghost".
