Mccombs, Cass
Mangy Love (2lp) (w/ Download)
 cover
Anti
The talented songwriter Cass McCombs returns with his 8th album. With help from the talented engineer Rob Schnapf, McCombs delivers a solid grip of tunes that combine elements of 70's & 80 soft rock & 00's indie & alt rock. Things that came to mind while listening to this were Elliott Smith (which isn't too surprising as Schnapf recorded with him), BECK, STEELY DAN, early HALL & OATES & even some hints of THE POLICE. Angel Olsen provides some subtle backing vocals on the song "Opposite House" as well. RECOMMENDED.

New LP $19.99

Schreifels, Walter
An Open Letter To The Scene (w/ 7") (colored Vinyl, W/ Download)
 cover
Run for Cover
After what's seemed like 100 delays, the solo debut from WALTER SCHREIFELS finally hits our shelves again! If you're browsing the punk section & don't recognize his name, let's just throw a few of his past bands at you: GORILLA BISCUITS, YOUTH OF TODAY, RIVAL SCHOOLS, CIV. SCHREIFELS is a proven songwriter, & this is a pretty mellow album but chock full of hooks & his distinct voice. Contains covers of CIV's "Don't Gotta Prove It" & AGNOSTIC FRONT's "Society Suckers!" So - this isn't very "punk," but SCHREIFELS is more punk than almost all of the records in our Punk section combined. RECOMMENDED!

Inquisition
Bloodshed Across The Empyrean Altar :beyond The Celestial Zenith (2lp)
 cover
Season of Mist
2016 & seventh amazingly-titled album from Seattle's INQUISITION! This two-piece is about as Satanic as it gets, people. Dark, fast, evil black metal for fans of MARDUK, IMMORTAL & so on. RECOMMENDED.

New LP $25.99

Eternals/ Espiritu Zombi Group
Espiritu Zombi (w/ Download)
 cover
New Atlantis/Submari
Chicago scene vets THE ETERNALS return after a rather lengthy hiatus with this incredible album. The core band of Damon Locks, Wayne Montana & Areif Sless-Kitain are backed-up by an impressive cast of jazz & improv players & singers including Jason Adasiewicz, Josh Berman, Nate Lepine, Matt Lux, Jeanine O'Toole & Tomeka Reid. The result is a mix of forward thinking, jazz influenced funk/dub/rock that reminds us of releases on the great Strata East label, spiritual jazz like Gary Bartz, Sonny Sharrock's later records etc... Do yourself a favor & check out this truly unique album by one of the best Chicago bands of the past decade or so. RECOMMENDED.

New LP $16.99

Walker, Ryley
Golden Sings That Have Been Sung (2lp, Deep Cuts Edition, Colored Vinyl)
 cover
Dead Oceans
Chicago's Ryley Walker continues his journey with the fantastic "Golden Sings That Have Been Sung." Walker leads some of the finest players in the improv/ jazz scene with his effortless sounding guitar playing & almost-spoken, stream of consciousness singing style. Walker's love of 60's & 70's British folk (John Martyn, John Renbourn, Richard Thompson etc...) is as prevalent as ever but this one hints at 90's & 00's indie sounds too ala Jim O'Rourke, WILCO etc... The future is bright for Chicago music in 2016 with killer albums like this, Moon Bros., Jackie Lynn etc... We're not complaining...RECOMMENDED. This limited expanded edition features a 41 minute version of the song "Sullen Mind" recorded live for SiriusXM.

Myrkur
Mausoleum (w/ Download)
 cover
Relapse
Stunning live album from MYRKUR deconstructs seven of her songs acoustically (piano & vocals)& was RECORDED IN A FREAKING MAUSOLEUM with the Norwegian Girls' Choir! Haunting doesn't even begin to describe it. Two new tracks make this even more RECOMMENDED.
Available at: Broadway

Explosions In The Sky & David Wingo

 cover
Temporary Residence
EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY teamed up with David Wingo of OLA PODRIDA a few years back for the soundtrack to the David Gordon Green film "Prince Avalanche" & now they return with a score to another Green movie "Manglehorn." There are moments like E.I.T.S. with more subdued, ambient moments mixed in.

New LP $28.99

Loveless, Lydia
Real (180grm) (w/ Download)
 cover
BloodShot
Third album from the wise-beyond-her-years 25 year old musician Lydia Loveless. This album has much more of a pop-influence than here previous albums & Loveless even cites the Swedish dance-pop pixie Robyn as an influence. We don't hear any Robyn here but the more straight-ahead explorations of artists like Neko Case & Lucinda Williams certainly apply. This should definitely be one of the bigger releases on Bloodshot in 2016. RECOMMENDED.
Available at: Milwaukee Ave. and Loop
New LP $16.99

Surfing
Surfing
 cover
1080p Collection
You ever say a word over and over until it sounds totally unfamiliar? That's the concept here with this self-titled SURFING album. Raw and dirty boombox-friendly techno that rocks and grooves over a single repeated vocal fragment until it reaches zen-like transcendance. This whole collection of tunes sounds as if it's coming from a slashed speaker, or dust-coated stylus in the best way possible. On 1080p and recommended!
Available at: Broadway
NCS $5.99

Palermo, Damon Eliza
Clouds Of David
 cover
1080p Collection
Classic New Age vibes from Damon Eliza Palermo of MAGIC TOUCH. Beautiful, wistful, and sometimes melancholic chord clouds float just above your head space, accented by the occasional melody and/or light percussion. This album sounds like early PHOTEK or other ambient techno if you took all the drums out. Fans of ANTLRD, STEVE ROACH, and the POP AMBIENT compilations. On 1080p and recommended!
Available at: Broadway

Jeff The Brotherhood
Zone (w/ Download)
 cover
Dine Alone
Capping off the spiritual trilogy that started with 2009's Heavy Days, Zone has been called experimental, & was recorded over the span of 2 weeks in sessions fueled by large amounts of smoked wood & meat.

New LP $15.99

Henske, Judy & Jerry Yester
Farewell Aldebaran (remastered) (first Pressing, Ltd 1500, Color Vinyl)
 cover
Omnivore
We suppose this could have gone in the Lovin' Spoonful, the Association, Frank Zappa or folk sections considering the personnel here. Originally released on Zappa's Straight! Records in 1969, both Jerry Yester and Judy Henske were relatively unknown although had a number of albums to their names. Yester's work with his previous bands easily overshadows this solo effort and Henske's folk releases were tame in comparison to this psychedelic foray into vocal trickery and fantastic lyrical imagery. Guests are credited as being Bernie Krause (Beaver and Krause), Solomon Feldthouse & David Lindley (Kaleidoscope), Ry Cooder and 12-string savant Dick Rosmini. If you are perusing our psych section and stumbled across this LP, this is a no-brainer. We promise! Recommended if you like Tim Buckley's "Starsailor" album, Ora's 1969 self-titled LP, or the more psychedelic musings of Buffy Sainte-Marie. *** 2016 reissue is remastered from the original master tapes, has liner notes with new interviews & includes five previously-unissued instrumental demos! ***

Hey Mercedes
Everynight Fire Works (2lp)
 cover
Run for Cover
2016 reissue/remaster of this fantastic 2001 debut from HEY MERCEDES. FYI - this band is 3/4 of the legendary BRAID, but HEY MERCEDES is the more straightforward of the two & total power-pop perfection. We can't over- state how great this record is. Also included is the "Weekend EP" which was previously only available on CD. RECOMMENDED! RECOMMENDED! RECOMMENDED! RECOMMENDED!
Available at: Loop
New LP $24.99

Atmosphere
Fishing Blues (3lp) (w/ Download)
 cover
Rhymesayers
Eighth album from Minneapolis' ATMOSPHERE is 18 tracks of SLUG & ANT's personal lyrics & mellow, layered production, respectively. It seems like it was just yesterday that we first heard the "Lucy Ford" collection & this long-running duo is still delivering catchy hip- hop tracks that'll also force you to pay attention & listen hard. We're not sure what the hell is going on with the cover art but whatever, this is RECOMMENDED & features a few guest verses from the likes of MF DOOM, AESOP ROCK, KOOL KEITH, GROUCH, DEM ATLAS & more.

Disrotted
Divination (w/ Download)
 cover
Nerve Altar
Second LP from Chicago's DISROTTED has four songs of agonizingly slow death from members of SICK/TIRED, KUNGFU RICK, HARPOON, etc. We didn't think it possible to out-creep their first LP, but they've done it. FYI - this LP only plays if there is zero sunlight in the room!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Kart, Jacob
Sigint (w/download)
 cover
Baro
Local label BARO brings us a brand new tape by the ever-so-talented Chicagoan (and Reckless employee) JACOB KART. Maybe you remember him from BULLET HELL or CRUSH KILL DESTROY, or maybe you've seen his recent modular project BUCKET BRIGADE. On SIGINT, Mr. Kart uses his trademark multi-looper setup to bring out some of the most elusive and aurally pleasing qualities of the guitar. Swirling percussive plucks glide amongst warm swells of amber-tinted chords- if you think you've heard all the sonic capabilities of the axe, think again. SIGINT if full of headphone nuggets and little surprises at every corner. Expertly recorded by Brian Sulpizio & mastered by Carl Saff, with beautiful art by Ian Ferguson (hydEON). This release is not to be missed. H I G H L Y R E C O M M E N D E D ! ! !
