Title - 'Good Luck Have Fun'
Artist - Mother Falcon

Oh my goodness! Good Luck Have Fun is yet another amazing album from Mother Falcon. The band has an incredible string and vocal composition and the songs are beautifully orchestrated, as always, but Mother Falcon's tireless pursuit of radiant new music has provided us a quite stunning work of music art.

Started by cellist Nick Gregg at a football-obsessed Texan high school, Mother Falcon grew from an after school orchestra jam session into one of Austin s most beloved music acts, all before most of its 22 members graduated high school. The indie orchestra, given the name Mother Falcon after a misheard TV overdub from the Bruce Willis hit movie 'Die Hard' ("Yippee-ki-ay, Mother Falcon"!), garnered major local airplay and a series of sold out local shows with the release of its full-length album, Alhambra.

The unlikely ensemble's second album, You Knew, received support from NPR and the band soon began selling out clubs on subsequent national tours. Good Luck Have Fun is Mother Falcon's first release on Universal Music Classics and marks the beginning of a new partnership, which includes plans to record and release a fourth album in 2016.

The best I can describe it is that the band plays what might be described as ethereal rock music. Half of them play strings (cello, violin, viola, banjo and mandolin - did I mention pedal steel?) while the rest play brass, reeds or percussion. There's one guy who plays bassoon while another plays saxophone, percussion AND piano!

In closing, Good Luck Have Fun is sure to delight both longtime fans and discerning,on the fence fans; and yet - at some level - let nobody leave this disc unhappy, or thoughtless.
