The Rural Alberta Advantage (RAA) returns with the third and strongest addition to their impressive catalogue, Mended with Gold. Originally hailed as Canada’s best unsigned band on the now defunct music blog herohill. Most importantly, Mended with Gold boasts a captivating end to the album, which I personally consider to be the most appealing aspect to any release. Though touted by many as the focal point of the album (and its lead single), I find Vulcan, AB to be the least gripping song on the final third of the album, though still an enjoyable track overall and a middling ballad compared to the entire offering.
The Rural Alberta Advantage is a Canadian indie rock band that formed in 2005 in Toronto. The band consists of Nils Edenloff on lead vocals and guitar, Amy Cole (Robin Hatch between September 2016 and January 2018) on keyboards, bass, and backing vocals, and Paul Banwatt on drums. They have released four albums and are signed to Paper Bag Records in Canada and Saddle Creek Records internationally. In 2011 they were nominated for a Polaris Music Prize.
The Rural Alberta Advantage's third album doubles down on their secret weapon-drummer Paul Banwatt-and it is, by a wide margin, their boldest and most ambitiously recorded album. After an overly muted sophomore release in 2011’s Departing, Edenloff wisely sought out more immediate threats to his security while writing Mended With Gold. Taking on the Ontario Rural Disadvantage of Bruce Peninsula, he was subject to the unpredictable cold, as well as the occasional black bear and wolf milling about
Toronto - The Rural Alberta Advantage will release their highly-anticipated third album, Mended With Gold, on September 30th. The twelve-track album was recorded at Toronto's Candle Recording with the band's long-time live engineer Matt Lederman (Hayden, !!!, Besnard Lakes) alongside co-producer Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett, Austra, F cked Up). In 2006 singer-songwriter Nils Edenloff, percussionist Paul Banwatt, and t Amy Cole came together to release their debut self-titled EP as The Rural Alberta Advantage.

ABOUT the rural alberta advantage. The Rural Alberta Advantage's percussive folk songs about hometowns and heartbreak, and relentless tradition of touring have taken the trio of Amy Cole, Paul Banwatt and Nils Edenloff from humble recognition amongst indie rock die-hards as "Canada's best unsigned band" to sold-out tours and devoted fans around the world with featured coverage from Spin Magazine, Pitchfork, The New York. The band has been nominated for two 2012 Juno Awards (Best New Group and Video of the Year for their song Stamp ), long listed for the 2011 Polaris Music Prize, and awarded the CBC Music Prize for Best Independent Artist in 2014. The RAA has released four albums on Saddle Creek/Paper Bag Records: Hometowns (2009), Departing (2011) and Mended With Gold (2014).
If we look at The Rural Alberta Advantage’s three albums as a planned trilogy, we see a resonance between the cover artworks of their debut, Hometowns, and this, their third album, Mended With Gold. The crisp, blue air of Hometowns is later dug up from the frozen ground to which it fell upon the first below-freezing night, painted black and gold, erected like a graffiti’d tree.
