Alberta Cross: Crate of Gold
New York twosome Alberta Cross released their highly anticipated sophomore album, Songs of Patience, on ATO Records on July 17th 2012.
“Ultimately, Songs of Patience is both a throwback to Alberta Cross’ roots and a progression forward. It’s a record that is as soulful as it is driven. The album veers from the melodic sprawl of opener “Magnolia” to the pensive provocation of “Lay Down,” a song bolstered by crashing guitars and one of the record’s most thrilling choruses. “Wasteland” is a hook-laden, no-holds-barred rocker showcasing Ericson Stakee’s voice at its best, while “Crate of Gold” explores the motivations of the Occupy movement in all of its fuzzed-out, bass-driven glory. Indeed, Songs of Patience is the sum of three years’ worth of parts – a struggle that concluded in one hell of an album, and a brilliant new chapter in the musical journey of Alberta Cross.” – Press Here Publicity
