Country-rock was superseded as a description long ago by new, alt. and insurgent country, not to mention the catch-all 'Americana'. But the old '70s terminology should surely be revived to describe Austin five-piece Reckless Kelly, who sound more like Pure Prairie League than Uncle Tupelo. Led by the brothers Willy and Cody Braun, the band's third album stomps rowdily on tracks like "Let's Just Fall" and "Nobody's Girl".

Reckless Kelly – Under The Table & Above The Sun

Country-rock was superseded as a description long ago by new, alt. and insurgent country, not to mention the catch-all ‘Americana’. But the old ’70s terminology should surely be revived to describe Austin five-piece Reckless Kelly, who sound more like Pure Prairie League than Uncle Tupelo. Led by the brothers Willy and Cody Braun, the band’s third album stomps rowdily on tracks like “Let’s Just Fall” and “Nobody’s Girl”. They get more reflective on “Desolation Angels” and “Everybody”, but are soon rocking again on “Mersey Beat”, a tribute to George Harrison and surely the first song ever recorded in Nashville to mention cricket.
