‘A Modern Man’s Way To Improve’ Is A Promising Start For Royal Horses

Courtesy: TAG Publicity

Early this month, independent music collective Royal Horses released its debut album A Modern Man’s Way To Improve to the masses.  The 10-song record is a strong start for the band.  It is a presentation that makes this band one of the next big names in the country and southern rock communities.  That is proven in no small part to through the musical arrangements that make up the album’s 37-minute body.  They will be addressed shortly.  The lyrical content that accompanies the record’s musical content adds to the album’s appeal.  It will be addressed a little later.  The record’s production puts the finishing touch to its presentation and will be addressed later, too.  Each item noted here is important in its own right to the whole of the album.  All things considered, they make the album a positive start for the up-and-coming outfit that is certain to appeal to a wide range of audiences.

Royal Horses’ debut album A Modern Man’s Way To Improve is a powerful start for the collective.  It is a presentation whose appeal is far-reaching.  This is proven in part through its musical arrangements.  From start to end of the album, the band refuses to stick to just one sound and stylistic approach.  There is some rock influence, such as in ‘Rattlesnake Smoking a Cigar,’ which comes late in the albums run.  The song’s arrangement and sound is psychedelic.  There are times in this four-and-a-half-minute opus that conjure thoughts of Jimi Hendrix while at others, there are hints of Clutch.  Yes, it’s one heck of a combination, but it is balanced surprisingly well here and works just as well.  On a completely different note, ‘Leave A Light’ presents an old school country music approach that will appeal to fans of Hank Williams, what with its vintage honky ton sound and style.  On yet another note, a song, such as ‘Valley of the New’ will appeal to fans of the modern country rock band Reckless Kelly.  There is even a welcome bluegrass element in ‘Call It War’ and an equally enjoyable blues-based rock presentation in ‘Who Do You Know’ that will appeal to fans of Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band.  ‘Ruby Do’ gives audiences a sort of rockabilly approach that fans of Rev. Horton Heat and the Legendary Shack Shakers will enjoy.  Between these noted arrangements and the others featured throughout the album, the whole of the record’s musical content shows great diversity.  That in itself ensures the album’s noted wide appeal.  It is just one aspect of what audiences will enjoy about the album.  The lyrical content that accompanies the album’s diverse range of musical arrangements adds to the record’s appeal even more.

The lyrical content that is presented throughout A Modern Man’s Way To Improve adds to the album’s success because it is just as accessible as the album’s musical arrangements.  Case in point is the lyrical content featured in ‘Valley of the New.’  Front man Shelby Kemp sings here, “give me a reason to be here/Give me something to lose/Sing me a riddle/And I’ll give you a good answer/And I’ll hold you ‘til the sun comes shining through.”  From there he sings later, “If I die here/There is something you must do/March me down/In a field of golden roses/March me down/to the tune of something blue/hang my hat/On a yonder mountain/Lay my heart/In the valley of the new.”  This is as old school country as a song can get.  On another note, the addition of the claves to the song’s arrangement gives the work a little bit of a Jimmy Buffet influence.  Getting back on track, the song follows lyrically in similar fashion as that presented in its lead verse and chorus.  Simply put, this is vintage country in which someone is singing about life gone by and what is to come.  It’s one of those classic introspective songs that one could so easily hear in an old, dimly lit honky tonk bar.  Its introspective lyrical content and equally moving musical arrangement makes for so much enjoyment.

‘Valley of the New’ is just one of songs whose lyrical theme shows the overall importance of the album’s lyrical content.  ‘Rattlesnake Smoking A Cigar’ presents its own interesting lyrical content.  It is just as psychedelic as the song’s musical arrangement.  The subject sings here about going for a drive with his dad.  The duo meets a group of women *allegedly* and one turned out to be not quite what she appeared.  It is the most unique lyrical presentations featured in this album and will certainly have listeners talking. 

‘Bottom of the Chart’ presents another unique lyrical theme that is worth noting.  This song finds the song’s subject singing about being there for someone else when all of life’s negativities happen.  From everything dying to “mother earth closing her eyes”, to even rivers being dammed up by trees, the song’s subject says he will be there for that person “at the bottom of your chart.”  This is just this critic’s interpretation, but it comes across as someone saying, even when I’m the last on your list, the least important to you, I’ll be there.  If in fact that is what the song’s subject is saying, then it is powerful.  Most people who realize they are at the bottom of someone else’s priorities will do something to change things and perhaps just walk away from that situation.  For this song’s subject to seemingly say he will be there, devoted as ever, no matter what, is a powerful statement.  On one hand, it is moving.  On another, some might say not so smart.  The seeming lyrical theme in itself is certain to generate plenty of discussion.  Building on the noted discussion, if in fact this critic’s interpretation is right then it takes listeners in yet another distinct direction.  It shows even more, the record’s lyrical diversity.  The result is that it shows even more, the importance of the album’s lyrical content in whole.  The rest of the record’s lyrical content supports the noted statements just as much as that examined here.  Between all of that and the album’s musical content, all of this more than makes this record worth hearing.  All of that content is just a part of what makes A Modern Man’s Way Of Improving such a strong start for Royal Horses.  The production of the noted collective content rounds out the record’s most important elements.

The production of A Modern Man’s Way of Improving is important to note because of how much is going on in some of the album’s entries, and how little is going on in others.  ‘BLD’ for instance, which closes out the album, is one of the entries that has very little going on.  It is grounded in a very simple, light guitar line.  The echoing effect in the guitar’s melancholy approach is a credit to the production.  It really serves to help set the mood in this song.  The lyrical content is very limited here, which means the music takes center stage.  Those behind the boards are to be credited for their work here.  That noted echo effect and just the simplicity in the guitar line here supports the old adage that it is possible for a song to be heavy without being heavy. 

By comparison, the album’s title track, which comes very early in its sequence, has a little bit more going on.  The poppy approach and sound in the song again lends itself to comparisons to works from Reckless Kelly, but in this case, also to works from Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen.  That’s one heck of a collection of influences, but it works so well here.  It is also a credit to those responsible for the album’s production.  That upbeat but still light guitar line works so well with the song’s solid time keeping and catchy vocal delivery style to make for so much enjoyment.  On another level, the subtlety in the lead guitar line against the lighter rhythm guitar line adds its own richness to the presentation.    The bass line pairs with that aspect to fill out the arrangement even more.  As the song progresses, an increasing amount of action takes place.  Each element within the song is expertly balanced throughout, to the end that the song offers listeners full enjoyment and engagement from start to end.  It is just one more way in which the album’s production proves so important and hardly the last.  ‘Call It War’ is another example of the importance of the album’s production.

‘Call It War’ crosses elements of bluegrass with southern rock and country into one whole for its foundation.  The very crossing of the elements into one whole makes for an interesting presentation.  That the banjo and electric guitar get equal attention here thanks to the production enriches the song’s arrangement in its own right.  That the drums are used to tastefully here to add accents in all of the right points adds even more to the song’s enjoyment and engagement.  The whole conjures thoughts of the Jerry Reed/Dick Feller hit song ‘Eastbound and Down’ from the timeless Burt Reynolds movie Smokey & The Bandit.  That the whole can conjure such a comparison and that everything is so well-balanced here is one more example of the impact and importance of the album’s production.  The production clearly brings out the best aspects of each song, in turn making each song so enjoyable and engaging.  When this is considered along with the album’s musical and lyrical content, the whole of these elements makes the album in whole a successful first outing for Royal Horses.

Royal Horses’ debut album A Modern Man’s Way To Improve is a positive first outing for the up-and-coming band.  It is a presentation that is sure to appeal to a wide range of listeners.  That is proven in large part through its musical arrangements.  The record’s musical arrangements offer elements of southern rock, country, bluegrass, and even blues-based rock.  The arrangements never stay on one track for too long a period of time, either.  That ensures in its own way, listeners’ enjoyment and engagement.  The lyrical content that accompanies the album’s musical arrangements is just as diverse as the album’s musical arrangements.  It ensures even more that enjoyment and engagement.  The production that went into the album’s presentation brings out the best elements of each arrangement, making the album even richer in its presentation.  Each item noted here is important in its own right to the album’s presentation.  Al things considered, they make the album a promising first outing for Royal Horses.  The album is available now.

New Double Album Proves Again Why Reckless Kelly Is One Of Country Music’s Elite Acts

Courtesy: Thirty Tigers

Alt-Country outfit Reckless Kelly officially returns Friday with its tenth full-length studio recording.  The band will release its new recording, American Jackpot/American Girls digitally on Friday.  Leading up to its release, the double album produced three singles – ‘I Only See You With My Eyes Closed,’ ‘North American Jackpot’ and ‘Lonesome On My Own.’  While all three singles are enjoyable in their own right, they are just some of the songs that stand out on this latest offering from the band.  Considering the double record spans a total of 20 songs, it offers plenty from which to choose both in terms of musical arrangements and lyrical themes.  ‘Lost Inside The Groove,’ which comes late in the record’s 75-minute (hour and 15-minute) run, is another key addition to the album, proving its strength.  It will be discussed shortly.  ‘Another New Year’s Day,’ one of the album’s early offerings, is another of the album’s strong points.  It will be addressed a little later.  ‘Put On Your Brave Face Mary’ is yet another important addition to the album’s body.  When it is considered along with the other songs noted here, the album’s already released singles and the rest of the album’s songs, the whole of the album proves to be one of this year’s top new country music albums.

Reckless Kelly’s latest full-length studio recording American Jackpot/American Girls is another positive offering from the veteran alt-country outfit that audiences are sure to enjoy.  That is due to musical and lyrical content that will keep listeners engaged from beginning to end of the hour-long-plus record.  ‘Lost Inside The Groove’ is just one of the songs that serves to support these statements.  That is proven in part through its upbeat musical arrangement, which will get any listener’s foot tapping.  The song’s arrangement will take listeners back to another age of music, thanks to the incorporation of the organ into its whole.  The same applies to the style presented through the guitar, bass and drums, which collectively create a kind of old school honky tonk sound.  The combination of the classic surf rock sound generated through the organ and the old school country sound doesn’t seem on paper that it would work, but in reality, works quite surprisingly well.  It’s just one part of what makes the song stand out.  The positive energy exuded through the arrangement is enhanced through the song’s lyrical content.

The song’s lyrical content is just as upbeat as its musical content.  Front man Willy Braun sings in the song’s lead verse, “Well my little mamacita, she says to me/You’re everything I ever need/Ain’t no way I’d ever break your heart/She picks me up when I’m feelin’ down/Holds me steady when I’m spinnin’ ‘round/There’s no mistaking the real thing/And I’m lost inside the groove again with you, baby/I never want it to be found/Lost inside the groove again with you baby/This time, I’m not messing around.”  He continues in the song’s second verse, “Well my cool, rockin’ mama and lucky old me/We got something that you wouldn’t believe/Flyin’ down lover’s lane on cruise control/She’s pickin’ up what I’m puttin’ down/Heart to heart without making a sound/There’s no mistaking the real thing.”  He adds in the end of the chorus refrain, “Use my mind when I get you all alone/All my worries start fadin’ away/I save my trouble for a rainy day.”  A little more is added from here in the song’s third and final verse, but it is very much in the same vein as what Braun presented in the song’s first and second verse, and even its chorus.  To that end, the song’s somewhat celebratory lyrics, which focus on a man who clearly is head over heels in love, will connect with its own share of listeners.  Coupled with the song’s equally upbeat musical arrangement, the two elements join to make this song just one of this album’s most notable highlights.  ‘Another New Year’s Day,’ which comes earlier in the album, is another standout addition to the record.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Another New Year’s Day’ is distinctly different from that at the base of ‘Lost Inside The Groove.’  This song’s arrangement is quite reserved by comparison.  The balance of the piano, guitar and drums forms the foundation of this introspective composition.  That foundation is strengthened through the addition of the violin, mandolin and harmonica.  The whole of that collective makes the mid-tempo work engaging and entertaining in its own unique fashion, and serves well to help illustrate the emotion exhibited through the song’s lyrical content.

Speaking of the song’s lyrical content, Braun tugs at listeners’ heart strings through this work that is not only introspective but contemplative, too.  He sings in the song’s lead verse, “Well I woke up/With a clean slate/As the sun was setting in the west/guest the last day/Was a long one/From now on/I’m gonna do my best/To live my life/Like I always said I would/Shake these demons off my back for good/’Cause it don’t have to be this way/It’s just another New Year’s Day/It’s just another/New Year’s Day.”  He continues in the song’s second verse, “Well I went down/With my old pals/For a couple at the burger and brew/And I told ‘em/From now on y’all/things’ll be different like I always do/And I said just watch/this whole room, I’m gonna turn it around/Well they had a good laugh/And they ordered they another round/’Cause it always ends this way/It’s just another New Year’s Day/It’s just another New Year’s Day.”  He adds in the song’s third and final verse, “Well I cam back/To the hotel/And I swear I’m gonna finish this song/But I couldn’t/Help but wonder/Just where the hell it all went wrong/And they say you’ve gotta live like no tomorrow/Well that all sounds great/’Till it’s time to drown all your sorrows/There’s got to be a better way/It’s just another New Year’s Day/It’s just another New Year’s Day/It’s just another New Year’s Day.”  Again, this is pretty contemplative.  It’s as if he is saying in these words, the more things change, the more they stay the same, no matter how hard we try to change.  It makes a person look at one’s own life and perhaps try harder to not let the next day be another SSDD scenario.  Keeping that in mind, this song clearly stands out from others in this album, including ‘Lost Inside The Groove.’  It’s just one more example of what makes Reckless Kelly’s new album stand out, too.  ‘Put On Your Brave Face Mary’ is one more notable addition to the album that is unique in its own way.

‘Put On Your Brave Face Mary’ offers audiences another song that stands so starkly apart from its counterparts on this record in the best way possible, beginning with its musical arrangement.  The arrangement is a heart wrenching composition that is born in Braun’s vocal and instrumental performance.  It is a modern, melancholy work, but not melancholy just for the sake of it.  It really works well to accompany the heartbreaking story featured in the song’s lyrical content.

The story that seems to be presented in this song’s lyrical theme appears to center on a military veteran who has come back and is fighting that inner emotional battle of which so many news agencies have talked in stories that they run.  This is inferred right from the song’s lead verse, in which Braun sings, “Mary fought back tears when she saw that far off look in his eyes/Said, ‘what’d they do to you, baby?’/I can see you dyin’ inside/I got you six/Just like you’ve always had mine/These invisible scars don’t change the man you are/Everything’s gonna be alright/Put on your brave face Mary/Put on your brave face/Put on your brave face Mary/Put on your brave face.”  This verse alone certainly sounds like an addressing of the emotional scars that so many military veterans and their loved ones deal with together.  Braun continues in the song’s second verse, “VA’s understaffed/The lines are around the block/He calls up the hotline/But nobody there has the time to talk/Been talked up for days/Dealing with demons they don’t understand/Mary holds the line while he takes matters into his own hands/Put on your brave face, Mary/Put on your brave face/Put on your brave face, Mary/Put on your brave face.”  He adds in the song’s third verse, “Now he’s fighting for his life/Mary, she’s a rock/It’s all over the news/So Washington’s gearing up to talk the talk/Seven hundred billion/Somehow not enough to go around/It’s the price we pay are the 22 a day committed to the ground/Put on your brave face, Mary/Put on your brave face.”  Whether one is a veteran or knows a veteran, this song so hardly hits at the heart of this matter, of veterans dealing with PTSD and having no help other than family.  This isn’t the first time the Reckless Kelly has taken on the government’s leaders for their handling of the military.  The band took on George W. Bush and the government in their handling of the Middle East conflict on its 2008 album Bulletproof through the song ‘American Blood.’  That song was a damning indictment of the government’s focus more on American intervention in the Middle East for the aim of controlling the region’s oil supply more than to help free the region’s peoples.  Those with any connection to the military that the band has once again stood up for military personnel and holding those in power accountable here.  Keeping that in mind, this song proves once more why American Jackpot/American Girls is such a powerful new offering from Reckless Kelly.  When it is considered with the other songs noted here, the singles that have been spawned already from the album and the rest of the album’s songs, the recording in whole proves to be another strong new offering from the band and another of this year’s top new country music albums.

Reckless Kelly’s new double album American Jackpot/American Girls, the band’s 10th album to date, is another impressive offering from the alt-country outfit that is certain to resonate with the band’s established fan base and country music fans in general.  That is proven in each of the recording’s albums, and is evidenced here through just three of the songs featured in the album.  When those songs are considered alongside the album’s already released singles and the rest of the album’s works, the recording in whole proves itself a work that is deserving of as much praise as any of Reckless Kelly’s previous albums.  American Jackpot / American Girls will be available digitally Friday and physically in July.  More information on the album is available along with all of Reckless Kelly’s latest news at:

Chatham County Line Debuts ‘Strange Fascination’ Lyric Video

Courtesy: YepRoc Records

Chatham County line debuted the lyric video for its latest single this month.

The band debuted the lyric video for the title track from its forthcoming new album Strange Fascination March 18.  The song’s musical arrangement lends itself to comparisons to works from similar acts, such as Nickel Creek and Reckless Kelly.  Its lyrical content meanwhile accompanies that simple, soft arrangement, seemingly presenting a message about wanting love and the simple things in life. The song features guest vocals from Sharon Van Etten.

‘Strange Fascination’ is the second single from its eponymous album.  The band debuted the album’s lead single ‘Station to Station‘ last month.

The band’s ninth full-length studio recording, Strange Fascination is the final record featuring Chatham County Lines’ founding member and banjo player Chandler Holt.  It marks the band’s first lineup change since 2001 and the first time that any of the band’s albums has ever featured drums on every track, provided by longtime CCL friend Dan Hall.

Band member Dave Wilson (guitar/vocals/songwriter) talked about that stylistic change in a recent interview.

“We’ve had drums on several albums, most notably 2010’s Wildwood, and our audiences always responded well to those tunes,” he said..

Wilson and his band mates — John Teer (mandolin/fiddle/vocals) and Greg Readling (bass/pedal steel/piano) — self-produced Strange Fascination at Mitch Easter’s Fidelitorium Recordings in Kernersville, NC.  Yan Westerlund (Mipso, Phil Cook” assisted with drum recordings for the album in-studio.Chris Boerner (Hiss Golden Messenger, The Foreign Exchange) mixed the album.

Strange Fascination was originally scheduled for release May 15 through YepRoc Records. Events happening around the world have led the band to push up that date to April 24. A record release show is scheduled to take place June 6 at the North Carolina Museum of Art.

Pre-orders are open now for Strange Fascination.  The album’s track listing is noted below.

Reckless Kelly Debuts New Album’s Latest Single, ‘North American Jackpot’

Courtesy: Thirty Tigers

Reckless Kelly debuted the latest single this week from its forthcoming album American GirlsAmerican Jackpot.

The band debuted the song ‘North American Jackpot‘ Thursday through Taste of Country.  The song’s musical arrangement boasts a modern country music sound that any country music purist will appreciate.

Founding member and vocalist Willy Braun talked about the song’s lyrical content in a recent interview.

“Writing ‘North American Jackpot,’ I kept hitting a wall with the verses and the theme,” he said.  Trouble was, I kept going back to my first idea,a story about my grandparents, which wasn’t really going anywhere, but I couldn’t get away from it.  I thought I’d have to scarp this one till it made sense …the problem was I’d already started writing the rest of the album and was close to being finished, but the title track, ‘North American Jackpot,’ wasn’t close to being completed, and far from the cornerstone it needed to be.  I called Jeff Crosby, songwriter extraordinaire from the Gem State, asking for help.  The next day he sent a nearly perfect verse that got me out of the rut and on the right track.  I wrote a second verse almost immediately and we polished it up in Boise a couple weeks later.  I had my cornerstone.”

The debut of ‘North American Jackpot’ comes almost a month after the band debuted the double album’s lead single, ‘I Only See You With My Eyes Closed.’

The four-minute opus is everything that audiences have come to expect from Reckless Kelly over the years, in terms of its musical and lyrical content.

The band members discussed the song’s creation in a recent interview.

“I wrote the beginnings of a second verse on a long van ride after being woken up by the church bells next door in Nuremberg, Germany, and out of one of those lucid dreams where you don’t really know whether you’re awake or not,” said band founder and front man Willy Braun.”

Braun continued, “I wanted the song to have the same feel as those dreams when you drift from one thing to another, so Cody [Braun, Willy’s brother and Reckless Kelly co-founder] and Charlie Sexton played some spooky ambient stuff on top of Jeff Crosby’s main guitar track and we faded them all in and out to try to get that lucid half-dreaming half-awake effect.  There’s a lot going on, but Jim Scott did an excellent job mixing the track to capture that dreamlike vibe.”

‘Bulletproof Live’ Is Another “Bulletproof” Live Recording From Reckless Kelly

Courtesy: Thirty Tigers

Reckless Kelly hit the road last week in support of its forthcoming live recording Bulletproof Live.  The tour is scheduled to run through Nov. 29 in New Braunfels, TX, with performances in cities across America in-between.  While the band’s tour is extensive, taking the band to cities throughout the Midwest, Southwest, Pacific Northwest and west coast, there are still lots of cities and fans who will not get to experience the band’s live show.  That is where Bulletproof Live comes into play.  The recording gives fans – those who are and are not lucky enough to experience the band’s live show – the opportunity to experience the joy of a Reckless Kelly live show on CD.  This recording, which culled performances from the band captured during its 2018 west coast tour, is an enjoyable offering.  That is due in part to the set list, which will be discussed shortly.  The band’s performance of said set list adds even more enjoyment to the recording.  The recording’s mixing and production puts the final touch to its presentation, and will also be discussed later.  Each item noted here is important in its own way to the whole of Bulletproof Live.  All things considered, they make the recording an offering that all of Reckless Kelly’s fans will appreciate.

Reckless Kelly’s new live recording Bulletproof Live is a presentation that all of the band’s fans will appreciate.  That is due in part to the recording’s set list.  The set list features all 14 songs from Bulletproof in the exact same sequence as they are presented on said record.  While the recording’s packaging does not list the exact dates of the recorded performances, that is beside the point.  The fact of the matter is that audiences get here, Bulletproof in its entirety in the same sequence as its original studio presentation, but better, because it is presented here in a live setting.  Some of the versions are close to the original studio takes while others, such as ‘American Blood’ and ‘Passing Through’ give audiences a slightly different, but still equally enjoyable, take on said songs.  Simply put, the set list at the center of Bulletproof Live forms a solid foundation for the recording’s presentation.  It gives audiences the band’s whole album in the same presentation from its original recording.  It does this by presenting (audio) glimpses of Reckless Kelly’s live show at various performances.  This in itself adds to the interest because it is not just one performance.  It gives a wider understanding and appreciation of the band’s live show.  It is just one aspect of the recording that audiences will appreciate.  The band’s performance of the songs adds even more interest to the recording’s presentation.

The band’s performance of each of the album’s songs adds to the recording’s engagement and entertainment in that each member gives audiences something special in his own performance throughout. From beginning to end, each of the performances featured in the recording mirrors the songs of Bulletproof closely.  Yet at the same time, there’s a certain sense of intimacy established in the performances that it translated so well from start to end. That is due to the focus put into each song’s performance by the band’s members.  From the thoughts of an old country dive bar generated through the band’s performance of ‘California Blues’ to the energy of the opener ‘Ragged as the Road’ to the deeply bittersweet feel of ‘Don’t Say Goodbye,’ listeners can tell that the band’s members are each fully focused on giving audiences the best show possible in each performance.  The same applies with the rest of the featured songs, too.  The result of that focus being so well translated leads the recording in whole to be just as enjoyable as its studio source material.  When it is considered alongside the very fact that the recording’s sequencing presents Bulletproof’s sequencing in precise order, the two elements together make the record that much more appealing, for aesthetic and emotional reasons.  While the two elements go a long way toward making Bulletproof Live appealing to Reckless Kelly’s fans, they are not the recording’s only key elements.  The recording’s production and audio mix are just as notable in examining the recording’s presentation.

The production and audio mix is important to note in examining the whole of Bulletproof Live because they play directly into the translation of the band’s performances.  Front man Willie Braun’s vocals are expertly balanced with the work of his band mates – Cody Braun (vocals, fiddle, mandolin, harmonica), Jay Nazz (drums) and Joe Miller (bass)  — in each recording.  Not having the venues listed in the recording’s packaging and not having the recording available on DVD or Blu-ray, one can only assume the size of the venues in which the performances were recorded.  That aside, it is clear that those who handled the production and mixing took into full account those exact items – the venues and their acoustics – in producing the final product.  As a result of that focus, the sound in each performance translates each performance with full clarity, adding even more to the recording’s appeal. When that appeal is considered along with the appeal generated through the recording’s set list and the band’s performance thereof, the whole of Bulletproof Live becomes a presentation that will heartily appeal to any of Reckless Kelly’s fans.

Reckless Kelly’s forthcoming live recording Bulletproof Live is a presentation that is certain to appeal to every one of the band’s fans.  That is due in part to the recording’s set list, which despite being recorded at various points through the band’s 2018 west coast tour, mirrors the sequencing of its source material exactly.  The band’s performance of each song adds its own share of interest to the recording, too, along with the commendable mixing and production that wet into the recording’s final product.  Each item discussed here is key in its own way to the whole of Bulletproof Live.  All things considered, they make this recording another positive live offering from Reckless Kelly.  More information on the recording is available online now along with all of the band’s latest news and more at:

Reckless Kelly To Release New Live Recording Next Month; Announces New Live Dates

Courtesy: Thirty Tigers

Reckless Kelly has a new live recording due out next month.

The veteran county-rock band announced Friday that it will release Bulletproof Live June 21 via Thirty Tigers.  The recording was originally captured during the band’s 2018 west coast tour during which the band celebrated the 10th anniversary of the release of Bulletproof.  It features songs from the album performed at various points during that tour.

In anticipation of the recording’s upcoming release, Reckless Kelly has released a stream of the song ‘You Don’t Have To Stay Forever’ via SoundCloud and Wide Open Country. Reckless Kelly fiddle/mandolin/harmonica player Cody Braun talked about the song in a recent interview.

“‘You Don’t Have To Stay Forever’ has always been a fun song to play because it’s a little different in structure than some some of our other tunes,” Braun said.  “I love interesting melodies and songs that go places you don’t expect them to.  Songs start out as nothing but ideas, and only once they’re written down and recorded do they become something real and tangible.  The strong ones survive and if they’re played enough, live over a long period of time they eventually take on a second life and even sometimes new meanings.  We wanted to capture that.”

The full track listing for Bulletproof Live is noted below.  Pre-orders are open now.

Tracklist:
 
1) Ragged As The Road (Live)
2) You Don’t Have To Stay Forever (Live)
3) Love In Her Eyes (Live)

‘Sunset Motel’ Is A Shining New Reckless Kelly Album

Courtesy: thirty-One Tigers/No Big Deal Records

Alt-country outfit Reckless Kelly marked a very special anniversary last week.  The Austin, TX-based band marked the 20th anniversary of the release of its debut album Millican Oct. 20.  The album was re-issued in a very limited number of copies – only 1,000 copies to be exact – making it a very special release for the band and fans alike. For those who might not have been lucky enough to get their hands on a copy of the album, there is some consolation that they can still get their hands on the band’s most recent album, 2016’s Sunset Motel.  Though a little more than a year has passed since the 13-song album was originally released, it is still just as enjoyable today as it was in that release.  That is due in part to the record’s musical arrangements, which will be discussed shortly.  The album’s lyrical themes are just as important to note as its musical content.  Last but not least of mention is the record’s packaging.  It seems surprising, true, but is definitely worth noting.  Each element is important in its own right to the album’s overall presentation.  All things considered, Sunset Motel proves to be a record that any Reckless Kelly fan will enjoy.

Reckless Kelly’s ninth full-length studio recording Sunset Motel is yet another solid effort from the Austin, TX-based alt-country outfit.  Released a little more than three years after its 2013 album Long Night Moon, the album boasts plenty of positives, not the least of which is its collective musical arrangements.  The arrangements presented throughout the course of the record’s 51-minute run time are everything that audiences have come to expect from the band throughout the band’s life.  From the southern rock arrangements present in ‘Radio,’ ‘Moment in the Sun,’ and ‘Give It Up’ to the more direct country music leanings of ‘Under Lucky Stars,’ ‘Who’s Gonna Be Your Baby Now’ and the album’s title track to the middle ground in ‘One More Last Time,’ — which boasts quite a clear comparison to so many works from the late, great Tom Petty —  ‘Volcano’ and ‘How Can You Love Him (You Don’t Even Like Him)’, the arrangements presented throughout this record prove familiar ground for the band without being redundant from its previous works.  That ability of the band to present plenty of familiar sounds without being too familiar impresses plenty in itself.  It is just one of the elements that makes the album so enjoyable.  The album’s lyrical themes are just as important to discuss in examining it as its musical arrangements.

The lyrical themes presented throughout the course of Sunset Motel are just as certain to keep listeners engaged throughout the album’s 51-minute run time as its musical arrangements.  That is because they range from the serious to the standard and even in-between from start to finish.  The album’s opener sees its subject scratching his head as he asks a woman (probably the object of his affection) why she has fallen for another man in whom she seemingly doesn’t even like.  What man hasn’t been such a position at one point or another in life?  It is just one of the songs included in this record that takes on the standard subject of relationships.  ‘The Champ,’ ‘Who’s Gonna Be Your BabyNow’ and ‘Sad Songs About You’ also take on the topic.  It isn’t the only topic that the band tackles in this record.  The album’s title track presents a much more serious subject in the matter of addiction.  The song doesn’t make clear if that addiction is to drugs, alcohol or both.  Regardless, it takes on the issue in moving fashion.  ‘Volcano’ also presents its own serious turn as Braun and company take on so many issues that continue to divide the U.S. today.  Those issues include climate change, the debate over evolution and conservation.  The sense of cynical sarcasm in the song seems to paint a picture of frustration over how those issues have become so divisive.  It really is a strong statement from Braun and company here.  On a slightly lighter note, the band also takes on the music industry itself in playful fashion in ‘ Radio.’  The song jokes in sarcastic fashion about all the things that acts have to do to get on the radio and make names for themselves.  It’s a topic that is not rarely tackled, but also is not addressed too commonly, either.  To that end (and the way in which it is addressed here), it is another interesting addition to the album.  When it is considered along with the already noted themes and those not noted here, the whole of those themes makes clear why Sunset Motel’s lyrical themes are collectively just as important to note here as the album’s musical arrangements.  Its lyrical themes are not the last of its most important elements.  The album’s packaging round out its most important elements.

Sunset Motel’s packaging is an important piece of the album’s whole not because of its gatefold presentation, but because of its fun 3-D visuals.  The “motel room key” included in the album is not just a room key, but a viewer to find the hidden pictures and messages placed throughout the album’s packaging.  There are plenty of those messages and pictures across the album’s “booklet,” which turns out to be a map of sorts. Some of the images and messages spread across the “map” include headshots of the band members hidden on Mt. Rushmore, a giant rattlesnake spread across the country, and even a mirage of sorts used to better illustrate the message presented in Sunset Motel’s title track among much more.  It may not seem like much on the surface, but the fun presented in discovering the hidden pictures and messages placed throughout the album makes for its own share of enjoyment for listeners.  When that enjoyment is considered along with the enjoyment brought in the album’s musical arrangements and lyrical themes, the whole of those elements makes the album in whole a presentation that every one of Reckless Kelly’s fans will appreciate.

Reckless Kelly’s most recent album Sunset Motel is a presentation that is certain to have no sunset in itself among the band’s fans.  It presents plenty to appreciate from start to finish.  As already noted, that is due in no small part to some familiar (but not too familiar) sounds in its musical arrangements.  The album’s lyrical themes collectively play their own part in the album’s presentation as does the album’s packaging.  Each element is important in its own right, as has been noted.  All things considered, Sunset Motel proves to be another enjoyable effort for all of Reckless Kelly’s fans.  It is available now in stores and online.  More information on Sunset Motel is available online now along with all of Reckless Kelly’s latest news and more at:
