A website I have only just discovered, Daytrotter invites bands to their base in Illinois to perform new material, covers or just old tracks (but the latter often being reworked in some way).

All the songs are free to download off the site so I highly recommend that you sign up over there and get listening. But as they are free, I’ll put up a session in it’s entirety every now and again when they’re done by bands that I like.

The first of these is by a band that I absolutely love and have mentioned on here a fair few times; The Rural Alberta Advantage.

This Canadian three-piece produced one of the best albums of 2008 in ‘Hometowns’ and are currently growing in popularity every day in Canada and the US, where they regularly tour, as well as gaining fans on this side of the pond (but we’re still waiting on a tour over here!)

The session they did for Daytrotter consists of two old tracks and two new ones.

1) The Air – from the album; not one of my favourite tracks but it sounds great

2) Two Lovers – brand new track!!

3) In The Summertime – the album closer; reworked with a piano and sounds fantastic for it.

4) Barnesyard – another brand new track!!
