The Toronto based—and awkwardly named—trio The Rural Alberta Advantage have been known for their earnest, plainspoken approach to indie folk-rock. The trio’s debut album Hometowns was met with critical acclaim from Spin and Pitchfork, and rightfully so. The earnestness never approaches embarrassing levels, and never feels out of place in their music. And with “North Star”—off their new album Departing—the trio doesn’t miss a beat. It’s some fantastic indie folk-rock, and a delicate example of how to do this sort of music right.

The trio’s sophomore album Departing can be purchased online through Amazon or iTunes via Saddle Creek Records.
