I may not understand much about life. I don’t know why it’s sometimes so hard to sustain friendships with those you care about. I don’t understand the pervasive appeal of shitty ‘bands’ like Maroon 5. I can’t fathom why we park on driveways yet we drive on parkways.

Yet I do know that the new album by the Rural Alberta Advantage, titled Mended With Gold, is pretty damn amazing.


It’s brilliant, beginning to end. Melodic, rhythmic, and heartwarming in equal measures. This much I know.
