You know, at this point I'm sure many of you have noticed that most of these preludes aren't that different from each other. I'm usually either talking about the history of the country genre, an artist's background or in this case, discussing a band that I'm not overly familiar with.
Arguably one of the biggest names in the Texas Country scene, Austin based band Reckless Kelly is one of those names that I should know more of but just don't. Prior to hearing their latest album, Sunset Motel, the only album I had heard of theirs was Long Night Moon which would have had a shot at being one of my favorite albums of 2016. Seriously, it's that damn good. As a ritual for bands I don't know a ton about, I usually listen to some of their backlog before starting my review (one of many reasons why this review is so damn late). So is Sunset Motel compared to their past material?
