This week on Featured Album Fridays, I am showcasing the 2009 album from The Rural Alberta Advantage – Hometowns.
Here is the description of The Rural Alberta Advantage from their Last.FM:
Toronto-based trio The Rural Alberta Advantage (Nils Edenloff, Amy Cole, and Paul Banwatt) play indie-rock songs about hometowns and heartbreak, born out of images from growing up in Central and Northern Alberta. They sing about summers in the Rockies and winters on the farm, ice breakups in the spring time and the oil boom’s charm, the mine workers on compressed, the equally depressed, the city’s slow growth and the country’s wild rose, but mostly the songs just try to embrace the advantage of growing up in Alberta.
Wonderful album and gotta give it up to some local flavour! The stream is below and I hope you enjoy.
