This is what happens when musicians go reckless.

This is what happens when musicians go reckless.

Austin, Texas, rockers Reckless Kelly may not be a household name but after 15 years of playing shows across the United States and abroad, not to mention releasing nine critically acclaimed albums, the group is clearly making waves in the world of country music.

Its latest record, released on its brand-spanking-new indie label No Big Deal Records, is a collection of 10 songs about the ins and outs of the band itself. Whether it's the woes of being on the road or old-fashioned heartbreak, the boys capture the essence of what it means to be reckless and at the top of their game.

Recorded in a farmhouse turned studio in Austin, Texas, Good Luck & True Love was tracked almost entirely live, with little extra production aside from a vocal harmony courtesy of Nashville, Tenn.'s own Dani Flowers.

According to the band's website, fiddle/mandolin player Cody Braun reflects on what the quintet wanted to accomplish with this most recent release:

"We wanted to make a record that sounded like we sound live," said Braun. "Keeping it all in the same space and making sure it was an album rather than just a collection of songs was the main goal, and I think we came pretty close to what we set out to do."

Boiseans can catch Reckless Kelly at the Morrison Center on Friday, Feb. 1.
