Reckless Records 6/9/23 New Releases

King Krule – Space Heavy


>> BELL WITCH – Future’s Shadow Part 1: Clandestine Gate 2LP/CD (Profound Lore) *Ltd. Purple Vinyl

BELL WITCH returns with Future’s Shadow: Part 1 Clandestine Gate the first part of a proposed three album trilogy. The album starts off with a mellow organ passage that sounds like a funeral dirge.Guitars slowly fade in & the piece finally fully arrives at the 9 minute mark. If you thought Mirror Reaper was a slow burn wait until you throw this one on. All of the elements that we know & love about BELL WITCH are here, slow as molasses doom, epic patience & willingness to let the chords breathe & REVERENCE FOR THE DOOM. RECOMMENDED.

>> DECISIVE PINK – Ticket to Fame LP (Fire) *Ltd. Pink Vinyl

An exciting collaborative project between KATE NV and ANGEL DERADOORIAN, channeling the former’s forays into experimental pop and the latter’s penchant for ambient atmospherics. Angular, disarming, playfully abstract, and RECOMMENDED.

>> FEEBLE LITTLE HORSE – Girl With Fish LP/CD/CS (Saddle Creek) *Pink Vinyl or Indie Exclusive Grey Galaxy Vinyl

Following hot off the heels of Saddle Creek’s Hayday vinyl reissue, FEEBLE LITTLE HORSE’s sophomore record keeps up the gauzy, off-kilter approach found in self recording. Girl with Fish is filled with confident, dynamic songwriting that draws from shoegaze and noise pop, all with a playful attitude that pops up in turns of phrase and home studio tricks. For fans of: ALEX G, LIZ PHAIR, HORSEGIRL. RECOMMENDED!

>> JAYDA G – Guy LP (Ninja Tune) *Ltd. Eco-Mix Vinyl – Signed Edition available while supplies last

The latest record from London-based JAYDA G is a rich mixture of house, R&B and disco, with her own voice brought more to the forefront. A tribute to her father and his experiences as a black man in 20th century America, this should appeal to fans of YAYA BEY, PEGGY GOU and AVALON EMERSON. RECOMMENDED.

>> KING KRULE – Space Heavy LP/CD (Matador) *Black or Indie Exclusive Clear Vinyl

This fourth album for Archy Marshall as KING KRULE seems to catch him drifting over his signature hazy, swamped-up sound, breaking up the guitar distortion and general reverb with more, well, space. Marshall utilizes space perfectly here, creating uncluttered, rich atmospheres with synth pads and minimal band arrangements, bringing both his bittersweet melodies and wry lyricism to the forefront. The most mature release of his to date. Excellent stuff! RECOMMENDED!

>> JENNY LEWIS – Joy’All LP/CD/CS (Blue Note) *Black or Indie Exclusive Green Vinyl

JENNY LEWIS returns with her first album since 2019’s great On The Line. Recorded with producer DAVE COBB and a crack team of Nashville session musicians (plus special guest JON BRION), Joy’All is full of quirky, soulful country pop. that’ll hit the same pleasure center in your brain as classic FLEETWOOD MAC, DIANA ROSS, and even – stick with us here – JIMMY BUFFETT. On Blue Note and, as always with anything Jenny touches, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> MAG-AMPLITUDE – Wizards of Tomorrow LP (Zaius Tapes)

Zaius Tapes has dug up a really interesting nugget, this time a 1983 LP that was released in a pressing of just 100. Led by the blind guitarist Matt Muncil, MAG-AMPLITUDE’s sound sits somewhere between post-STOOGES proto-punk, outsider early noise like THE GODZ, lo-fi basement jams like WICKED LADY & some guitar playing that remind us of THE WIPERS’ Greg Sage. RECOMMENDED.

>> RUPA – Disco Jazz LP (Numero Group) *Reissue – Ltd. “Disco Rainbow” Color Vinyl

Is this disco? Well, maybe. Is this jazz? Dear god no. Numero graces us with a much needed reissue of this rare pop fusion record, one that evades categorization. The closest genres would be funk or boogie. Either way this record makes you move. K I L L E R grooves with traditional Indian instrumentation, and sultry Bengali vocals. What more do I need to say? C’mon, it’s disco-jazz. It’s DISCO JAZZ. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

>> SQUID – O Monolith LP/CD (Warp) *Black or Ltd. Blue Vinyl

No sophomore slump for Bristol’s SQUID, who build upon their motorik anglo-kraut-pop debut with more daring approaches to studio production that embrace electro- acoustic fusion in the BECK vein as well as robust prog passages that remind us of contemporaries BLACK COUNTRY, NEW ROAD. This outward expansion of sound is tied together on O Monolith with a stronger focus on melody, providing structure to the rhythmic exercises and production forays found all over. On Warp and VERY RECOMMENDED.

>> TEARS FOR FEARS – The Hurting LP (Mercury) *2023 Reissue – Half-Speed Master

TEARS FOR FEARS’ incredible debut album from 1983 has long been overshadowed by its follow-up Songs from the Big Chair. Back in 2002 a cover of “Mad World” from The Hurting was featured on the Donnie Darko soundtrack & it became a bit of a hit. Slowly people began to realize it was a cover & The Hurting started to come back to life. This album is incredibly mature for a debut, and though some of the songs might seem a bit dramatic & even ’emo’ today, their blend of electronics & traditional rock instrumentation still sounds incredibly fresh in 2023. This album is much darker than Songs From the Big Chair and it kind of sounds like a mix of early CURE, DEPECHE MODE, OMD & ULTRAVOX. Do yourself a favor & check out this album if you don’t know it already – it’s a true classic. 2023 half-speed remaster made at Abbey Road! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
