SHELLAC
TO ALL TRAINS
 cover
Touch & Go
It's a surreal time. Just a few weeks ago we were excited about getting the first SHELLAC album in 10 years. Now we all know it's their last one. Back in 2019 the band was kind enough to play at Reckless in honor of our 30th anniversary. Most of their set was made up of instrumentals that we can all hear now on "To All Trains." Steve, Bob & Todd really made it worth the wait. Inventive arrangements, instantly memorable riffs, mind boggling drum ideas, that dry SHELLAC wit & of course an amazing recording. A Fitting end to one of the best bands of the last 30 years.

GENDRON, MYRIAM
MAYDAY
 cover
Feeding Tube
One of our favorite current artists Myriam Gendron returns with her third album "Mayday." Her previous albums have mostly contained folk standards with lyrics taken from Dorothy Parker poems. This is the first album of mostly Gendron originals. Her playing is efficient but formidable. Seeing her play live is mind blowing because she's so consistent & doesn't seem to make any mistakes. Gendron is joined by Marissa Anderson & Jim White (DIRTY THREE) on 3 tunes & hearing her play with others expands her sound remarkably. Fans of Karen Dalton, Sibyelle Baier, Gillian Welch, Leonard Cohen need to hear this. RECOMMENDED.

GIBBONS, BETH
LIVES OUTGROWN
 cover
Domino
First ever strictly solo record from BETH GIBBONS has been a long time coming (eleven years after she had announced it), but the former voice for PORTISHEAD does not disappoint. Spacious, atmospheric production with intimate, close textures that evoke the robust art-pop of JULIA HOLTER and later SCOTT WALKER, as well as PORTISHEAD's classic icyness, all anchored by GIBBONS' unmistakable voice. On Domino, well worth the wait, and VERY RECOMMENDED.

PALLBEARER
MIND BURNS ALIVE (2LP, ORANGE VINYL) (w/ ETCHING)
 cover
Nuclear Blast
PALLBEARER continue to get cleaner & more polished & we're totally ok with it. "Mind Burns Alive" pushes them further into 70s rock/prog territory with serious nods at PINK FLOYD, songs that sound like RUSH at half speed, TOOL & even ALICE IN CHAINS at times. A solid listen.

BROADCAST
SPELL BLANKET (2LP) COLLECTED DEMOS 2006-2009
 cover
Warp
Big 36 track collection of demos and sketches from Trish Keenan & BROADCAST's productive post-"Tender Buttons" period of 2006-09. This should scratch the same itch that their "Microtronics" series does, as well as the third demo LP of STEREOLAB's reissue campaign of the last few years. VERY RECOMMENDED!

BNNY
ONE MILLION LOVE SONGS (LTD. RED VINYL)
 cover
Firetalk
This second record from Chicago's own Jess Viscius and BNNY is a turn around from the stark heartbreak of the band's debut with songs about love, lust and romance built on rich, gauzy arrangements that recall ALVVAYS, SNAIL MAIL and (for an older vintage) MAZZY STAR.

PRATT, JESSICA
HERE IN THE PITCH (BROWN VINYL) (INDIE EXCLUSIVE EDITION)
 cover
Mexican Summer
A brilliant fourth record from California psych folk singer JESSICA PRATT, who burrows deeper into the dreamlike mystery of her songwriting. "Here in the Pitch" is dotted with spacious, reverberating vocals, elliptical acoustic guitars and opaque lyrics - all PRATT signatures - but with some arrangements that flesh out the compositions without making them sound too robust. A bit of NICK DRAKE's "Bryter Layter", a bit of BROADCAST's Trish Keenan-esque vocalizations, a bit of dusty 78rpm hauntology, all wrapped up in inviting songcraft. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

CIVEROUS
MAZE ENVY ("GRIMACE" PURPLE VINYL)
 cover
20 Buck Spin
The Los Angeles death metal unit CIVEROUS returns in 2024 with "Maze Envy." The album begins with a screeching Bernard Herrmann esque string passage & quickly devolves into cavernous, doom-laden death metal. There are technical elements that will appeal to fans of BLOOD INCANTATION & some clean guitar passages that remind us of DREAM UNENDING. Overall pretty cool stuff here.

LENKER, ADRIANNE
BRIGHT FUTURE (RECYCLED VINYL) (INDIE EXCLUSIVE EDITION)
 cover
4AD
Following BIG THIEF's sprawling double-LP opus "Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You", singer ADRIANNE LENKER simplifies with this solo full-length. Just in the same way as her "Songs" & "Instrumentals" release in 2020, LENKER recorded these songs directly to tape, mostly with guitar, piano and violin, giving "Bright Future" the feeling of an impromptu home session done by musicians who have lived long enough in these songs to play them loosely. LENKER's writing evokes both sunlit Americana and airy, dreamlike psych-folk, all rooted in her skills for intuitive melody and poignant couplet lyricism. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

MAJESTY CRUSH
BUTTERFLIES DON'T GO AWAY (2LP) :("GHOST OF FUN" MILKY CLEAR VINYL)
 cover
Numero Group
Numero turns their attention to the 90s Detroit shoegaze/dream pop band MAJESTY CRUSH. The band was popular in their hometown but for some reason they never really took off other places. If you're a fan of 90s stuff like early RIDE, SWERVEDRIVER & CATHERINE WHEEL you should check this stuff out. RECOMMENDED.
