Music Monday: The Rural Alberta Advantage

 In Music, Music Monday

It’s a new week in a new month, so let’s freshen up that playlist.  This week, we’re heading north of the border…to Canada, not Kentucky.

Formed in Toronto, The Rural Alberta Advantage has spread their catchy, indie-folk style across four albums over the past decade.  They’ve even created their own unique take on the classic Eye of the Tiger, which will leave you wanting to climb a mountain (in lieu of stairs) Rocky III style.

My personal favorite tune from this group is Vulcan, AB; which focuses on an actual town in Alberta.  And yes, you guessed right, the town is legitimately adorned with Star Trek themed landmarks and even has a replica USS Enterprise on display.  Live long and prosper….and listen to these songs.
