The Rural Alberta Advantage - Departing

The 2011 sophomore album from The Rural Alberta Advantage.

"Departing is a forlorn record, one that practically oozes ache and pain, and is all the more compulsive for sounding so deserted in places. When all is said and done, if Departing doesn't make the Polaris Music Prize shortlist this year, I will quite handily eat my toque and take a New Year's Polar Bear plunge into the sub-zero temperature of the nearest river. The Rural Alberta Advantage has delivered a rarity: An album that remarkably stuns, even though its world view is largely seen from a car stuck in the middle of snow bank on the side of the road.
