"This band could be huge."—Pitchfork

Catch one of the breakout bands from the last South by Southwest Festival—Canada's Rural Alberta Advantage featuring singer/songwriter Nils Edenloff. Their debut, Hometowns (recently widely released by Omaha's Saddle Creek label) has garnered raves from music fans and the media. "At their best, they sound like an indie-rock dream date between Neutral Milk Hotel and the Arcade Fire," says the Philadelphia Inquirer.
