Reckless Records 9/30/22 New Releases

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Cool It Down


MARISA ANDERSON – Still, Here LP/CD (Thrill Jockey) *Ltd. Color Vinyl

Beautiful instrumentals from always reliable MARISA ANDERSON, moving from lightly strummed guitar soli to pastoral, pedal steel drenched atmospheres. This is perfect music for a grey autumn morning. On Thrill Jockey and RECOMMENDED.

EMERALDS – Solar Bridge LP/CD (Ghostly Int’l) *Remastered – Ltd. Gold Wave Vinyl

The late Ohio trio EMERALDS featuring Steve Hauschildt, Mark McGuire & John Elliott was one of the more exciting underground synth/drone groups at the time & their output has aged quite well over the years. Deep & spiritual synth drone made with some basement, art-rock attitude. RECOMMENDED.

TITUS ANDRONICUS – The Will To Live 2LP/CD (Merge) *Peak Vinyl Edition – Ltd. Black & Silver Vinyl

This seventh record from Patrick Stickles & company looks towards faith and human kindness with the same ambitions as previous releases such as The Monitor and A Most Lamentable Tragedy. These songs have a bit more polish and sheen to them, but moreso as a conscious stylistic decision to lean into, say, 80s ZZ TOP but with the verbosity of a MOUNTAIN GOATS or SILVER JEWS and the empathetic, working class attitude of THE REPLACEMENTS. Always lovely to have these dudes back. EXCELLENT and RECOMMENDED!

WILCO – Yankee Hotel Foxtrot: 20th Anniversary LP/CD (Nonesuch) *2LP Black Vinyl, 2LP Ltd. Cream Vinyl, 7LP Deluxe Edition, 2CD Expanded Edition, 8CD Super Deluxe Box Set, or 11LP/CD Super Deluxe Box Set

20 Years on, YANKEE HOTEL FOXTROT, Wilco’s first for Nonesuch, holds a special place in our hearts. Here’s what we thought about it upon its release: The hell and high water that Wilco has had to go through for this album’s release would destroy most bands. But the team of Tweedy, Stirrat, and newbies Glenn Kotche and Leroy Bach (with crucial assists from Jay Bennett and Jim O’Rourke) aren’t just releasing any normal record: they are releasing one of the most (if not the most) important records of the year. Top to bottom the album is a flawless piece of rock joy. Challenging, daring, and beautifully arranged. These Chicago darlings are raising the bar for the music world. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

YEAH YEAH YEAHS – Cool It Down LP/CD (Dress Up/ Secretly Canadian) *Ltd. Yellow Vinyl

It’s been almost 10 years since the last YEAH YEAH YEAHS album & their first on Secretly Canadian. Karen O, Nick Zinner & Brian Chase are masters of cinematic pop music & that’s on full display here. This is a solid entry into their already impressive discography. RECOMMENDED.
