Rural Alberta Advantage 

Wednesday, Dec 16 2009

Brimming with frazzled urgency, Nils Edenloff's strained, scraping vocals are the best part of listening to the Rural Alberta Advantage. The out-of-nowhere Toronto trio writes grabby songs that are both shambling and excitable, loping forward as if they might crumble at any second. That feeling keeps us on the edge of our seats throughout the band's shoestring-budgeted debut, Hometowns, which sports the best fusion of cheap keyboards, crooked hooks, and repurposed Americana since Grandaddy.
