The Best New Band of 2009: The Rural Alberta Advantage

Sorry, Passion Pit.

RuralAlbertaAdvantage-01-big

By now you may have heard all about The Rural Alberta Advantage: that they’re like Neutral Milk Hotel, The Arcade Fire, Frightened Rabbit. But have you heard The Rural Alberta Advantage?

Because the songs speak for themselves:

The Rural Alberta Advantage – The Ballad of the RAA
The Rural Alberta Advantage – Don’t Haunt This Place
The Rural Alberta Advantage – Four Night Rider

(Yes so technically this album came out in 2008, but it didn’t get a major release until yesterday so lay off. Like Bon Iver all over again.)

Disclaimer: These songs are up for listening purposes only for a short time. If you’re an artist or label who wants the song taken down, please write me.
