Although the band will understandably be compared to the likes of the Kings of Leon and My Morning Jacket, Alberta Cross seeks out the sort of raw energy and emotionally thrashing lyrics channeling the spirit of Neil Young. A quintet of L.A. stoner rock mixed with Haight-Ashbury love, each song follows Petter Ericson Stakee as he rips his soul apart and then stitches the pieces back together. The album feels southern and gothic, haunting its listeners with distorted power chords, bent guitar riffs, and dark, slightly angry lyrics. “ATX” is a powerfully emotional song filled with Stakee’s tortured wails and guitar thrashing.
