Alberta Cross – “Ramblin’ Home”

albertacross5

Alberta Cross – Ramblin’ Home

a song like “Ramblin’ Home” shows a glimmer of hope that Alberta Cross could be bound for great things… and word is that their first full-length is due sometime this month, so we’ll see.. their 2007 EP The Thief & The Heartbreaker was re-issued after selling out, and they have been on the road since. per Noel Gallagher’s personal request, they supported Oasis’ UK dates in ’08, performed at this year’s Coachella and Bonnaroo festivals, and are heading back across the pond for a string of live dates and festivals including Glastonbury and Hard Rock Calling with Neil Young… before they head back to the states for Lollapalooza and ACL. busy busy bees

The Everybodyfields – “Lonely Anywhere”

theeverybodyfields2

The Everybodyfields – Lonely Anywhere

wow, what a beautiful song. slow and honest alt-country that tugs at your heart strings. wait till that violin kicks in, as the song would wish, tears will come like the first time you lost something you loved. the saddest thing of all, The Everybodyfields have just broken up as of last week. they state on their myspace that they will be pursuing solo careers. perhaps Nothing (was) Okay? bummer either way, best of wishes to them..
