The Rural Alberta Advantage
Mended With Gold
(Saddle-Creek)

These guys and gal just keeping better. Their most powerful and slick album yet, they keep their anthemic, heart-on-your-sleeve folk rock consistently engaging, with some of the best drumming you’ll hear this year. The occasional synth-fueled moment offers a nice change, though the bulk of this third album is the dynamic, rugged indie-rock mixed with Nils Edeloff’s nasally vocals that are complemented by Amy Cole’s pretty pipes. How this trio haven’t achieved the success of their label mates is beyond me. (Tom Haugen)
