I don't know, it's actually up for debate. HG might actually like it. It's definitely not Mumford and Sons or any bullshit like that. The voice might be the kicker. Or the fact that I love RAA might be the kicker. But give it a listen, HG.
Here HG, I cut this from my post in the music recommendation thread:
If anyone hasn't heard The Rural Alberta Advantage yet, I seriously recommend them to EVERYONE on this board. All I can describe it as is if Jeff Magnum got together with some of the members of Port O'Brien and the drummer of Mastodon and started a band. Some of the vocal parts sound so much like him at times that it's scary. All of these vids are worth watching/listening to. Very very quality music here.
