Reckless Records 12/11/20 New Releases


BURIAL/FOUR TET/ THOM YORKE – Her Revolution/ His Rope 12” (XL)


A nice little surprise to close out the shitty year that is/was 2020, the first collab by these three artists since the 2011 “Ego/Mirror” EP. “Her Revolution” is a beautiful slow tempo tune with what sounds like a repeating sitar sample, some warm synths & falsetto vox from Thom. “His Rope” sounds like a minimal techno song at half speed & would fit nicely on a Thom Yorke solo record. RECOMMENDED.

HERON – HERON LP (Trading Places)

HERON was a group of British hippies that signed a deal with Dawn Records (COMUS, TRADER HORNE etc…) in the late 60’s & went into the studio to record a single. The group hated the session so they opted to record their album in nature’s studio, a grassy field. Their debut might seem a little corny in concept but it’s a beautiful album full of simple songs with incredible harmonies. Imagine SIMON & GARFUNKEL if they weren’t so square (no diss on S&G we luv em!) or PENTANGLE if they were more into the flower power thing. This is an amazing collection that will appeal to any fan of 60’s British folk or fans of Devendra Banhart, Vashti Bunyan, etc…AMAZING stuff.

YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS – Colossal Youth: 40th Anniversary Ed. 2LP + DVD (Domino)

40th anniversary of this essential piece of minimal pop music, whose stripped back, hook-laden structure would set the template for punk-funk groups like TUXEDOMOON, ESG, and later SNEAKS. This edition also includes cuts from “Salad Days”, “Is The War Over”, “The Final Day”, the “Testcard” EP and a DVD of their final show in New York back in 1980. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
