Reckless Records 6/23/23 New Releases

Wye Oak – Every Day Like The Last


>> JONNY BENAVIDEZ – My Echo, Shadow & Me LP (Timmion) *Black or Ltd. Pink Vinyl

This debut album from New York’s JONNY BENAVIDEZ makes good use of Timmion’s house backing band COLD DIAMOND & MINK, with hazy, nostalgic production on songs that recall classic doo-wop and early soul in the FLAMINGOS vein. RECOMMENDED!

>> GEESE – 3D Country LP (Partisan) *Black or Ltd. Clear Vinyl

This sophomore record from Brooklyn’s GEESE takes a more laid-back approach from their debut, toning down their angular post-punk hooks with jammy, summertime songs that seem to chase the sound of mid/late-70s ROLLING STONES. On Partisan & RECOMMENDED!

>> TIM HECKER – No Highs 2LP (Kranky)

Tim Hecker returns after a 4 year absence with No Highs for Kranky. Hecker is a master of deep frequencies & tones & on this one he uses acoustic instruments like Colin Stetson’s cyclical sax patterns, steel guitar, french horn & bass clarinet along with his laptop manipulations to create a rich realm. Ambient music is in a weird spot in 2023 & Hecker still comes out on top. RECOMMENDED!

>> JOHANNA SAMUELS – Bystander LP (Jealous Butcher) *Orange Vinyl

Tactile indie-folk from LA’s JOHANNA SAMUELS, who here partners with producer Josh Kaufman (who’s worked with CASSANDRA JENKINS and THE HOLD STEADY, as well as being in BONNY LIGHT HORSEMAN) for a similar sound that is both textured and free-wheeling, with SAMUELS’ simple, evocative songwriting front and center. RECOMMENDED!

>> WYE OAK – Every Day Like The Last: Collected Singles 2019-2023 LP/CD (Merge) *”Peak Vinyl Edition” Ltd. Swirl Vinyl

The latest collection from long-running indie band WYE OAK compiles digital singles from the past four years as well as a trio of new songs, all showcasing a more folk-driven approach to the gauzy, thorny rock the duo has perfected over the last 15 years. Good stuff! RECOMMENDED!
