The Albertans - Casual Encounters by Ernest Jenning Record Co. published on 2013/06/19 16:16:11 +0000 A sparsely told story of craft and sacrifice, commitment and resignation, richly orchestrated but deftly composed so that each instrument’s voice steps out of the way of the next. - Impose "The Albertan's new offering is a synesthetic masterpiece" - Discorder Magazine Dangerous Anything is The Albertans 3rd full-length album. The band spent a year conceiving the album while in Vancouver, BC ending up with an offering that’s dark and often challenging while still making previous comparisons to MGMT, CAN and Sparks as appropriate as ever. Recorded with Josh Stevenson (Nu Sensae), 'Dangerous Anything' is a culminating event for The Albertans: sonicly, the band has found its voices both disembodied and haunting, while musically they have begun to mine a krautrock territory hinted at on last years “The Hunter” EP. As always, the band deals in pop songforms, but 'Dangerous Anything' veers both heavier and softer with songs that seep out slowly before forming the off kilter hooks the band has made their name from. The Albertans are a 4-piece consisting of synth, guitar, drums, and bass. The band stabilized its current line-up and location 2 years ago in Vancouver, BC. The Albertans write all songs together.
