Alberta Cross

Broken Side of Time

Though Alberta Cross originally hail from London, their Neil Young-inspired vocals, watery guitars, and psychedelic production sound like they could have come tumbling out of Alabama or the hills of L.A.'s Laurel Canyon, efficiently appropriating the darker Southern Rock sound with an added tendency for narrative, dynamic arcs.   

The band's debut album, Broken Side of Time, is a coherent work fashioned from a throwback aesthetic. Broken is not concerned with a new sound but with a confusion of the geography of time and sound. Rather than embracing experimentation, Alberta Cross' new album acts as a dusty, dark vignette; a foreboding moment in rock from years past. (www.albertacross.net)
