Alberta Cross to play the Skyway on 5/9 (Preview)


Alberta Cross is currently on their spring tour promoting their new self titled album, which was co-produced by Stakee and Claudius Mittendorfer (Temples, Interpol, Johnny Marr). The LP captures new sonic elements for Alberta Cross. For the first time Stakee orchestrated and recorded broadening brass and string sections that were weaved throughout the 12-track offering, which help to beautifully capture the band’s timeless, alt-folk sound that is all their own. “On this record, we have all these new colors,” Stakee continues. “It felt pretty amazing. It was very loose, not a lot of structure. I wanted to keep that vibe-the looseness and the soul. Mandolin, violin, French horn, flugelhorn, trumpet-we put those on a lot of tracks. That was a new thing for me and very inspiring. This record seems so… pure to me.” NPR, New York Times, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Paste and more have all highly-praise Stakee on the new musical direction.
