Rural Alberta Advantage – “Mended With Gold”

I really, really, really, like this album. Particularly track 3 (On The Rocks). This is a really nice collection of heartfelt/earnest, songs, that are executed in a very immediate & attention-grabbing manner. A major reason for this is their drummer, whose percussive work is astounding. They sound like; if Neutral Milk Hotel & The Lumineers had a baby, and it played Smashing Pumpkins covers, acoustically. Big, singsongy choruses abound, and it never lets up. The word “relentless” comes to mind.

RIYL: Okervil River, Typhoon, Hayden, Neutral Milk Hotel
Play: 3, 2, 1, 5, 7, 8, 11
FCC: 10
