The Rural Alberta Advantage "Terrified" of silver, offer therapeutic coping mechanisms on new album Mended with Gold

Saddle Creek dahlins The Rural Alberta Advantage have been out of the spotlight for three years, but on September 30 they’ll come back better than eva! That is the day the Canadian sweetie pies will release Mended with Gold, and if it’s truly been three years in the making, then I think they are owed a round of applause (so pretend there’s a “round of applause” emoji or five here). While you wait for the end of September to roll around, go get nostalgic with their back catalog and ask yourself why you ever stopped listening to them. The album will likely be filled to the gills with some good ol’ Mike Mogis-approved tunez, and if you don’t believe me, well, how’s this track sound to ya, hunh!?

Mogis was obviously ALL OVA THIS! He’s probs jammin’ to it right now and frantically calling the Obersts “just to, ya know, talk, teeheehee!” No, but really, he was calling to say that the Indie Exclusive version of Mended with Gold is super-duper limited so peeps should def czech out the Saddle Creek store for details.
