RecordVinyl Digital Album. The Rural Alberta Advantage's percussive folk songs about hometowns and heartbreak, and relentless tradition of touring have taken the trio of Amy Cole, Paul Banwatt and Nils Edenloff from humble recognition amongst indie rock die-hards as Canada's best unsigned band to sold-out tours and devoted fans around the world with featured coverage from Spin Magazine, Pitchfork, The New York. The band has been nominated for two 2012 Juno Awards Best New Group and Video of the Year for their song Stamp , long listed for the 2011 Polaris Music Prize, and awarded the CBC Music Prize for Best Independent Artist in 2014. Album 2008 13 Songs. The Rural Alberta Advantage. Alternative 2008. The Ballad of the RAA. With a name like the Rural Alberta Advantage and a debut album called Hometowns, one would hope for an unpretentious collection of amiable indie pop tunes filtered through the wistful lens of a Wes Anderson film, and that's exactly what you get. Singersongwriter Nils Edenloff, along with Amy Cole and Paul Banwatt, craft lovelorn postcards to small town heartache, beloved and embittered friends and family, blue collar hardships, and the great big world around them with the kind of wide-eyed gusto that's extremely effective when played in front of a hundred sweaty, dancing kids at a h. The Rural Alberta Advantage is a Canadian indie rock band that formed in 2005 in Toronto, Ontario. The band consists of Nils Edenloff on lead vocals and guitar, Amy Cole Robin Hatch between September 2016 and January 2018 on keyboards, bass, and backing vocals, and Paul Banwatt on drums. They have released four albums and are signed to Paper Bag Records in Canada and Saddle Creek Records internationally. In 2011 they were nominated for a Polaris Music Prize. While the Rural Alberta Advantage establishes a great rhythm and flow in Hometowns, it could have prospered from a little more variety. Dont be mistaken though, Hometowns has staying power. The genuine vocals, appealing storytelling, and overall spontaneity and explosiveness will keep anybody coming back for sure. This was the case for me anyway. That introduction up there was written about four weeks ago Hometowns is still a regular play. All I can do now is pray that the Rural Alberta Advantage does not follow the same self-destructive path as Neutral Milk Hotel. Recommended tracks: Frank.
