Mother Falcon's five-song EP last year, Still Life – even at the time – was merely a dress rehearsal for the neo-classical tour de force performance that is Alhambra. Evoking the grandeur of Spain's Moorish palace, Austin's wunderkind chamber orchestra soars into its full-length debut on confident wings fully extended. Its many moods – "For Papa," "Serpent Tongues," "Drown Me in the River," "These Things," "Just To See Her Smile" – are romantic, thrilling in their unexpected pleasures; "Rabbit Run" builds for two minutes before Gregg and Puckett chime in; "Kathryn" and the wordless "Waltz" are pure and utter romanticism; and "Alligator Teeth" makes Puckett one of Austin's most intriguing female artists of 2011. Even on this grand scale, Alhambra is simple proof that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts
Alhambra is more than a just a palace; it is an entire walled city within the city of Granada. There are royal apartments, forts, gardens, pavilions, barracks. All this surrounded by an impressive wall.
