We get a lot of crap CDs at the self-titled offices. But once in a while, a pleasant surprise slips into our promo stack. Here's a recent delivery that knocked the S/T staff on its collective ass.

The Rural Alberta Advantage

Album: Hometowns (Saddle Creek)

Vibe: Astonishing twinkles of Neutral Milk Hotel from a land-loving Canadian trio that spark with Ben Gibbard's tenderness and jittery, naked percussion.

RIYL: The aching drama of Scottish indie rock; sidewalk performers; Elephant Six demo cassettes
