Reckless Records 7/7/23 New Releases

Lifeguard – Crowd Can Talk/ Dressed In Trenches


>> TONY ALLEN & ADRIAN YOUNGE – Jazz Is Dead 18: Tony Allen LP (Jazz Is Dead)

The 18th release in the Jazz is Dead series focuses on some increbile sessions featuring the late, legendary Afrobeat drummer TONY ALLEN. The unmistakable patterns of ALLEN’s drumming had been used quite well working with techno pioneer JEFF MILLS, but these sessions are far less electronic, emphasizing the lush, big-band brass and polyrhythmic funk of FELA KUTI and AFRICA 70. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> BEVERLY GLENN-COPELAND – Beverly Copeland LP (Transgressive) *Reissue

Originally released in 1970 in a pressing of just 250 copies that were distributed to CBC radio, this debut album by Beverly Glenn-Copeland (then Beverly Copeland) is finally available again. With some similarities to fellow Canadian Joni Mitchell & other folkies like Odetta & Buffy Sainte-Marie, Copeland’s debut is remarkably strong & still sounds unique & interesting so many years later. RECOMMENDED!

>> PJ HARVEY – I Inside The Old Year Dying LP/CD (Partisan)

Tenth studio album for Peej (and first in seven years) reunites her with long-time collaborators JOHN PARISH and FLOOD for a moody, immersive record with prickly folk arrangments, lush field recordings, meandering melodies and lyrics filled with obscure dialects and turns of phrase. The result is a quintessentially “English” album, moored in narrative concept the same way as RICHARD DAWSON but with the sonic sensibilites of JOSEPHINE FOSTER and a Byron/Keats-esque sense of poetry. RECOMMENDED!

>> LIFEGUARD – Crowd Can Talk/ Dressed in Trenches 12″/CD (Matador) *Standard version or in-store exclusive Black & White alternate cover available ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

We’re incredibly stoked for the Matador debut of local heatseekers LIFEGUARD, combining 2022’s EP Crowd Can Talk with 5 new cuts on the B side titled Dressed in Trenches. Shades of DINOSAUR JR., PAVEMENT, a bit of JAY REATARD. Be wise and keep your eyes peeled for more. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
