RECKLESS RECORDS 8/5/22 NEW RELEASES
CHAT PILE – God’s Country LP/CD/TAPE (Flenser) *LPs sold out but we’ll have a limited amount next week
NOT METAL IN THE METAL SECTION ALERT!!! The much anticipated album God’s Country by the Oklahoma City band CHAT PILE is finally here. Aggressive & heavy noise rock ala early Am Rep & Touch & Go bands with some melodic hooks that dig in & won’t let go. Fans of bands like LAUGHING HYENAS, HELMET, TAR, BIG BLACK, GODFLESH, early SWANS etc… will eat this up. RECOMMENDED.
DAMON & NAOMI w/ MICHIO KURIHARA – Sky Record LP (202020) *Companion book available at Wicker Park
The much delayed 2021 album from indie pop legends Damon & Naomi with another legend, Japanese guitarist Michio Kurihara. Mellow, mostly acoustic tunes in Damon & Naomi’s dreamy style with brilliant lead playing by Kurihara. We’re so glad these finally made it!
GLÜME – The Internet LP (Italians Do It Better)
The Internet is a Johnny Jewel produced album by the L.A. based artist & former child star Glüme. It definitely has that Johnny/CHROMATICS sound but maybe with more bubblegum pop and that Italians Do It Better sheen.
GRATEFUL DEAD – Europe ‘72 3LP (Rhino) *180g, 50th anniversary – Late arrival from last week
50th anniversary reissue of the classic Europe ’72 recorded at various stops on the legendary tour. This is easily one of the finest live records ever released, a must-have for any Dead fan & a perfect intro if you’re looking to get into the band. RECOMMENDED.
KOKOROKO – Could We Be More LP/CD (Brownswood)
Surprising to see that this is the first full-length release from London-based jazz outfit KOKOROKO after they’ve been responsible for a wealth of 12″s and EPs (as well as an appearance on the excellent We Out Here compilation). This continues to deliver, finding the group land between late-70s Ghanian highlife, lite third stream lounge and the lush orchestral soul jazz of their London compatriots. For fans of EBO TAYLOR, PAT THOMAS, KAMASI WASHINGTON, SHABAKA HUTCHINGS and the groovier stuff on ECM, this is RECOMMENDED!
