    Rural Alberta Advantage issues anticipatory track

    The Rural Alberta Advantage - Departed

    My love for The Rural Alberta Advantage is not really a secret. Their full-length, 900彩票下载安卓towns, held a very special place in my record player, and it was easily one of my most-listened albums of 2009, when it was reissued. When Departed was announced, I became, well, a little giddy. I don’t think this should come as too much of a surprise — I get giddy at the merest mention of new things from bands I enjoy, and when it’s a band I have an unabashed affection toward, make no mistakes: I’m like a little school girl. Well, I mean, I’m like a little school girl in some respects, not all.

    At any rate, I snagged an e-mail this morning from advertising a track from the upcoming Departed, which is due out March 1. I jumped from the couch I’d fallen asleep on, grabbed my laptop, and the listening took off.

    The track is “Stamp,” and it takes The Rural Alberta Advantage forward on the same path they’d been forging with their excellent 2008-2009 outing. “Stamp” is brash effort in the vein you900彩票下载安卓’d expect from the group, but there’s something fresh here. There’s an apparent cynicism that belies the innocence of 900彩票下载安卓towns; the tone is brazenly sardonic. Instrumentally, this is essentially par for the course, though there are some new elements that really help the track succeed. We’ve still got the little bits of silence you900彩票下载安卓’ve come to expect,

    Snag the track on or via above.
