RECKLESS KELLY’SSTREAMING NEW ALBUM ‘GOOD LUCK & TRUE LOVE’IN ITS ENTIRETY FREE ON AOL MUSIC
CD OUT SEPTEMBER 13 ON THEIR OWN NO BIG DEAL RECORDS
The Austin-based band RECKLESS KELLY is streaming their new album GOOD LUCK & TRUE LOVE in its entirety free on AOL Music’s “Listening Party” (http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/#/1) beginning this week. The album out September 13 on their own No Big Deal Records straddles the lines of rock and country and marks their 11th album.
Mario Tarradell of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS recently praised the music and noted it “…blends the group’s signature Texas country sound with elements of roots rock. Standouts include ‘She Likes Money, He Likes Love,’ ‘Save Me From Myself,’ ‘Weatherbeaten Soul’ and ‘I Never Liked St. Valentine.’ Willy Braun’s wordplay is as stingingly potent as his lead vocals. This is a no-frills band with an organic sound and do-it-yourself Texas mentality. These guys have a sense of humor, too. Pick up a copy of Good Luck & True Love… (9/2/11)”
Beyond their studio acumen, the band is renowned for their relentless touring and high-energy live shows. “Reckless Kelly is one of the best live bands ever,” said the BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN of a recent concert, adding that “they’re profoundly good, but, as is the case with any really good band, the magic is in the live shows (8/17/11).”
RECKLESS KELLY—Willy Braun, lead vocals/rhythm guitar/Wurlitzer piano; Cody Braun, fiddle/mandolin/harmonica/bouzouki/harmony vocals; David Abeyta, lead guitar & piano; Jay Nazz, drums & percussion; and Chris Schelske, bass guitar–will tour through the end of the year.
