The Rural Alberta Advantage, "Departing," for A Direct Jolt of Song
The Rural Alberta Advantage's second album, Departing (Saddle Creek), is one direct, continuous infusion of indie rock song, no pretentions, no pretexts. Nils Edenhoff puts together the songs, sings them in a young indie sort of voice, and strums the guitar effectively. The rest of the band is there adding keys, drums and backing vocals.
It's their second. It's good like their first was. It is no more than it is. It is no less. You can depend on that. Oh yeah, and they are part of a Canada thing too. That's cool.
