THE ALBERTANS Joel Bravo, a native of Milwaukee, and bassist Ian Everall, Albertan by birth, met while members of New York’s Bravo Silva. When that outfit ended they, along with a large and talented rotating cast of players, began playing in New York City under the name Sex with an Angel. They played CMJ in 2007, they moved to Vancouver in 2008, took up the name THE ALBERTANS and, along with new fellow travelers, Curtis Mclean, Alison Yip, and Krystin Monaghan, took to the road. The Albertans, though, are not about place or pedigree. It is passage, the extremis of transmitting real bodies across the tangled wires and abstracted networks of space and person, that comes through when they play. Their songs are a cartography of North America mapped on the trail of human footsteps’ fading heat signatures. It is traveling music, and they sing their songs in search of a road through territory made uncertain by love, dreams, and strange frustrations, the few directions to be heard tuned in dubiously on the last working AM radio.

They are joined by THE GREAT FICTION
FLOATATION WALLS
and MONEYHOUSE GOLD
