alberta cross

i first came across alberta cross a few months ago, when their seven song debut was released in the states & the track, "lucy rider", was popping up on more than a couple sites, but i guess they sort of got lost in the shuffle...well, my loss...this east london duo is really good & while they may wear their influences on their sleeves, they've definitely got their own voice...still, it doesn't hurt that those influences include "the band, van morrison, & leonard cohen"...if you're not already familiar, check these guys out.

this band should have gotten more buzz with this ep because it was amazing. their full-length coming out sept 22 should be even better. cant wait!
