Reckless Records 12/9/22 New Releases

Dead Meadow – Force Form Free


>> DEAD MEADOW – Force Form Free LP/CD (Blues Funeral)

DEAD MEADOW returns!! There was a few years where these guys were on a serious tear. They’ve been on hiatus for a bit but we’re really glad they’re back. They’ve changed things up a little, going for  more of an expansive, psychedelic doom instrumental trip. You have to wait until track 4 forthe vocals to finally arrive & it’s a pretty mellow track, reminding us more of Jason Simon’s solo stuff. Fans of their previous records might be surprised by the lack of vocals but overall this still has a DEAD MEADOW vibe. RECOMMENDED.

>> LELAND WHITTY (of BADBADNOTGOOD) – Anyhow LP (Innovative Leisure)

This solo record from BADBADNOTGOOD’s LELAND WHITTY makes good use of his Swiss Army Knife-like abilities
on guitar, sythnesizer, woodwinds & strings, allowing for a totalizing compositional approach in the vein of DAVID AXELROD and ARTHUR VEROCAI. Lush, textured and layered, this is perfect for fans of BBNG, 70s HERBIE HANCOCK and the groovier side of the label International Anthem. RECOMMENDED!

>> WILD NOTHING – Nocturne: 10th Anniversary Edition LP (Captured Tracks) 

10th anniversary edition of the fantastic 2nd record by Jack Tatum’s WILD NOTHING now on marble vinyl with new artwork. This is one of the finest moments for the band & the record has aged very well. Top-notch dream pop for fans of the early days of CAPTURED TRACKS, 80s Flying Nun bands etc…RECOMMENDED!

>> VARIOUS – Artificial Intelligence LP (Warp) *30th Anniversary – Remastered

Warp is closing out 2022 with a new remaster of their landmark 1992 compilation, featuring early cuts from APHEX TWIN (as THE DICE MAN), RICHIE HAWTIN (as UP!) and AUTECHRE amongst other Warp staples. History on wax here! RECOMMENDED!

>> VARIOUS – Padang Moonrise: The Birth of the Modern Indonesian Recording Industry 2LP (Soundway) *w/ bonus 7″

Excellent compilation from Soundway detailing music from Indonesia during the middle of the 20th century, a period of extreme political violence that also saw the simultaneous emergence of a recording industry. The music here draws from both Western styles of jazz, afro-latin music, lounge and doo-wop as well as styles from the regions such as Gamelan, Gambus and Kroncong. For fans of Ethiopiques and South East Asian “nuggets” compilations, this comes RECOMMENDED.
