Reckless Records 6/16/23 New Releases

Fred again… & Brian Eno – Secret Life


>> GREG FOAT & GIGI MASIN – Dolphin LP (Strut)

Awesome collab between UK jazz keyboardist GREG FOAT and legendary Italian ambient composer GIGI MASIN. Some third streamish spaciousness that reminds us of the FLOATING POINTS / PHAROAH SANDERS record from a few years ago, along with the rhythmic thrust of the self-titled RESAVOIR record. RECOMMENDED!

>> FRED AGAIN… & BRIAN ENO – Secret Life LP/CD (Text) *Early 2023 album now available

2023 collab (and hopefully the first of many) between red hot producer FRED AGAIN… and his mentor, the icon BRIAN ENO. Secret Life tends to lean more towards Eno’s classic ambient sound than the preferred rave/house sound of Fred again…’s solo LPs, with varied samples & ethereal vox that fans of BURIAL, JAMES BLAKE, and THE XX oughta vibe with heavy. Released on FOUR TET’s Text Records and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> DANNY PAUL GRODY – Arc of Day LP (Three Lobed)

Excellent, acoustic guitar-centered pastoral Americana from DANNY PAUL GRODY, evoking the music of Windham Hill artists like WILLIAM ACKERMAN and ALEX DE GRASSI as well as classic ambient in the vein of HAROLD BUDD and ENO. Lovely music! RECOMMENDED.

>> HEAVENLY – Le Jardin de Heavenly LP (Skep Wax) *Reissue w/ 7″ booklet

Essential reissue of HEAVENLY’s sophomore record which presages BELLE & SEBASTIAN’s twee, sentimental lilt while still keeping up a raucous power pop edge. A Sarah Records classic which comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> JABEE – Am I Good Enough 2LP (Clerestory AV)

You might not have heard JABEE’s name, but the MC is an underground legend. OKC’s not a place with a long history of great rap music, but Jabee’s prolific output means that he has a long reach. Here on this compilation of 4 EPs worth of excellent rhymes & beats, Jabee calls in assistance from Producers like HAVOC (Mobb Deep) & MCs like BLU & BOLDY JAMES… RECOMMENDED.
