9/10/21 NEW RELEASES
LOW – Hey What LP/CD/TAPE (Sub Pop) Loser Edition color vinyl shipped late but we should have them early next week
The great Duluth, MI band LOW returns with their 13th album & the first without bassist Steve Garrington since “C’mon.” Fans of their previous fantastic album “Double Negative” will recognize some similar “deconstructive” recording techniques along with Alan & Mimi’s amazing harmonies. It’s really impressive how LOW have managed to stay fresh over their lengthy career. SO RECOMMENDED!!
MAKO SIKA/ HAMID DRAKE/ TATSU AOKI/ THYMME JONES – Ourania LP (Feeding Tube)
The collaboration between Chicago’s psychedelic explorers MAKO SICA & local jazz scene treasure Hamid Drake continues this time with help from Tatsu Aoki on bass & Thymme Jones on piano & organ. This might be their most “out” collaboration yet with some hints of spiritual jazz & bands like ASH RA TEMPEL & AGITATION FREE. RECOMMENDED!
QRIXKUOR – Poison Palinopsia LP (Dark Descent)
Two EPIC 20+ minute tracks of progressive death metal that will appeal to fans of BLOOD INCANTATION, PORTAL, CRYPTIC SHIFT, later MAYHEM, LEVIATHAN etc… BRUTAL!
SPIRITUALIZED – Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space LP/CD (Fat Possum) limited color or black vinyl
Fat Possum continues their reissue campaign for SPIRITUALIZED with one of Jason Pierce’s best albums & one of Reckless’ favorite albums of all time, “Ladies & Gentlemen We are Floating in Space” from 1997. Everything seemed to fall perfectly into place on this one with Jason & the band finding the perfect balance of minimalist, post-psychedelic rock with soul & gospel music. Like the other Fat Possum reissues this one features new artwork. AS RECOMMENDED AS THEY GET.
VARIOUS ARTISTS – The Harmonic Series II 3LP (Important)
Wonderful compilation on Important Records celebrating 20 years for the great label featuring some leaders in the minimalist/avant garde scene including Kali Malone, Duane Pitre, Catherine Lamb, Tashi Wada, Byron Westbrook & Caterina Barbieri.
