Last month, we told you about Digg.com’s exclusive interview with the one and only Austrian television sensation, Bruno (AKA Sascha Baron Cohen in his most hilarious post-Borat persona to date). Andrew Bancroft sat down with the over-the-top fashion icon on June 30, and fired off questions sent in from Digg.com users.

The Rural Alberta Advantage are about as rustic as the throbbing synth that opens its newly re-released 2008 debut, Hometowns (Saddle Creek). But you don’t need to listen long to immediately glean the band’s backwater charm as the chimes and strings kick in. Like an indie-rockier American Analog Set, a more stately and minimalist Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, or a folkier, filled-out Matt and Kim, the Rural Alberta Advantage’s earnest feistiness shines through the homespun, lo-fi production of Hometowns.
