Rural Alberta Advantage "Drain the Blood"
Coming from seemingly nowhere this year, The Rural Alberta Advantage dropped what will be (spoiler alert) one of my top albums of the year with Hometowns. Much has been made of their similarities (at least vocally) to Neutral Milk Hotel, but after many listens, criticisms such as those fade under the power of the great songs. While "Drain the Blood" is a highlight, it's certainly not the peak moment of this record. Nevertheless, enjoy this Ante Kovac directed suburban spy caper.
