Ranging from flamenco to bluegrass, the high-energy sound of eclectic folk/world music quintet The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra has made them favourites on the live music circuit, and new (third) full-length LOVE. captures that spirit nicely. It is the follow-up to 2012's Follow My Lead, Lead Me To Follow, an album praised by noted U.K.folk publication Songlines for being "packed with catchy tunes and high quality playing". We're betting they'll love the new one too. Violin and accordion add to the danceability of the democratic group's infectious sound, something not affected by personnel changes. "The creation of LOVE. was a family affair, which is a feeling our group has always embraced”, says band member Kurt Loewen.
