Reckless Records 2/24/23 New Releases

U.S. Girls – Bless This Mess


>> ISABELLE ANTENA – En Cavale LP (Numerophon) *Reissue – Black or Ltd. “Seaside” Silver Vinyl

After the French group ANTENA broke up in 1985, the singer Isabelle moved into a more pop direction with this solo album now reissued by Numero. There’s a similar Brazilian/samba influence but the sounds are smoother & more intentionally mainstream. Nods at 80s pop & R&B radio hits with touches of Japanese city pop. RECOMMENDED.

>> BIG|BRAVE – Nature Morte LP/CD (Thrill Jockey) *Black or Ltd. Lavender Vinyl

This new album from Montreal post-metal trio BIG|BRAVE (aka BIG BRAVE) makes use of empty space, cutting in textured walls of distortion and sharp, full-band stabs to the sparse atmospheres the band creates. Nature Morte should appeal to fans of labelmates SUMAC and THE BODY if the music was taken to a spartan extreme. RECOMMENDED.

>> EN ATTENDANT ANA – Principia LP/CS (Trouble In Mind) *Black or Ltd. Peach Color Vinyl

The French group EN ATTENDANT ANA returns with Principia. The quintet writes crystalline pop gems with nods at Reckless faves like STEREOLAB, BROADCAST & CAMERA OBSCURA. RECOMMENDED.

>> KATE FAGAN – I Don’t Wanna Be Too Cool LP/CD (Captured Tracks) *Expanded Edition – Milky Clear Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

I Don’t Wanna Be Too Cool is a classic slab of early 80s Chicago new wave/punk & it’s been expanded from a 7″ to an album with 4 extra tracks. Catchy as hell songs that sound like a mix of BLONDIE, SUBURBAN LAWNS, B-52’s etc… It’s great to be able to stock this in the store again. RECOMMENDED!

>> U.S. GIRLS – Bless This Mess LP/CD (4AD)

Stellar return for Meg Remy and her eighth record as U.S. GIRLS. Bless This Mess develops the USG sonic palette, honing the 80s-influenced electro-funk and bright psych-pop with a crisp, wood-paneled studio sound, while exploring Remy’s pregnancy and birth of her twin sons. Remy manages to strike a balance in between sultry and anthemic, and the result is a very visceral, “living” record that makes its way through the studio sheen. On 4AD and RECOMMENDED!
