GOU, PEGGY
I HEAR YOU (BLUE VINYL) (INDIE EXCLUSIVE EDITION)
 cover
XL
South Korean DJ & model PEGGY GOU has been a star of the Berlin dance scene, having released a miniature fleet of singles and mixes (including her own DJ-Kicks mix back in 2019). "I Hear You" is her first full length, pushing headlong into her signature bubblegum deep house and earworm dance-pop melodies. Summery, bright and yet effortlessly cool, this is one of the most inviting dance records of the year that will most likely make its way onto many year-end lists including some of ours! RECOMMENDED!

SOFIA BOLT
VENDREDI MINUIT
 cover
Born Losers
This is the 2nd album by the talented Los Angeles via Paris artist Amelie Rousseaux. Jangly guitar songs with baroque pop moments. Think Velvets, GALAXIE 500, Twin Peaks roadhouse dreamy pop, Francoise Hardy, STEREOLAB & some occasional furious moments that dip into TELEVISION. This is a really deep record that reveals itself more & more with repeat listens. RECOMMENDED.

UNIFLORA
IN THE DOOR (OUT THE DOOR) B/W HELLGIRL
 cover
Charm Co-op
First vinyl release from local heatseekers UNIFLORA, whose "Plastic Sturgeon" cassette we (and you) liked. They seem kinda linked to the "Hallogallo" bag along side other favs LIFEGUARD, HORSEGIRL, etc., but I'm not 100% sure because i don't get out much. Anyway they're younger than you, they play angular post-punk better than your band, and they're part of the reason that Chicago mayor Brandon Johnson has named 2024 "The Year of Post-Punk" (This is true.) You probably already know that you like this. First release on new label/worker's cooperative CHARM CO-OP.

APHEX TWIN
DIGERIDOO (2X12" EXPANDED)
 cover
R&S
This 1992 EP has been unavailable for over 20 years & it's now been expanded for this 2024 reissue. "Didgeridoo" is regarded as one of the finest moments in Richard D. James' ridiculously stacked discography. Supposedly he wrote the track to tire people out dancing at the end of raves in Cornwall. At over 7 minutes, this heavy track actually tracked in the U.K. back then. We're really stoked to have this back in the racks again. RECOMMENDED.

MONTGOMERY, ROY
TEMPLE IV (2LP)
 cover
Kranky
First ever vinyl release for Roy Montgomery's legendary 1995 album "Temple IV." Montgomery got his start in the New Zealand band PIN GROUP who were associated with the who's who of the Kiwi sound at the time. In 1994 Roy released a record on Kranky with the band DADAMAH & soon after made his way to New York City. While there he recorded two albums including this one on a 4 track machine with a cheap guitar & a few effects pedals. Long form guitar jams with drone elements that fit in somehwere between POPOL VUH, the drony side of V.U., German legends Achim Reichel & Manuel Gottsching. This one is absolutely epic. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

FINOM
NOT GOD (RED VINYL)
 cover
Joyful Noise
FINOM or the artist(s) formerly known as OHMME return with a new album "Not God" in 2024. The extremely talented duo of Macie Stewart & Sima Cunningham are deeply entrenched in the Chicago music scene but FINOM is clearly their baby. Produced by Jeff Tweedy with his son Spencer playing drums, "Not God" perfectly displays Macie & Sima's abilities as players & songwriters. Hints of THE ROCHES, SPARKS, B-52s & even ESG. Another great one from these gifted Chicagoans.

MACKAY, BILL
LOCUST LAND
 cover
Drag City
The prolific Chicago based guitarist Bill Mackay is back with a new one in 2024 called "Locust Land." We're not sure if Bill was aware of the incoming 2024 locust invasion or not but the title certainly seems prescient. This one has some nice variety with John Martyn-esque solo tunes, jammy instrumentals & nods at POPOL VUH. RECOMMENDED.

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.
