Reckless Records 7/14/23 New Releases

Clark – Sus Dog


>> SAM BURTON – Dear Departed LP/CD (Partisan) *Black or Ltd. White Vinyl

LA’s SAM BURTON makes gentle, sun-kissed folk that recalls early TIM BUCKLEY, JOHN DENVER and TOWNES VAN ZANDT as well as contemporaries like CUT WORMS. Mellow and melody-forward, with some beautiful string texture and choral backing vocals. RECOMMENDED!

>> CLARK – Sus Dog 2LP/CD (Throttle) *Executive produced by THOM YORKE

UK producer Chris Clark has long been a master of the spectrum of sound, but in the past he’s used vocals only sparingly as just another effect in the mix. On Sus Dog, Clark sings on nearly every track, his reedy falsetto lending warmth & vulnerability to even the more menacing tracks. We apparently have THOM YORKE to thank for this, as he encouraged Clark to push his boundaries here & even gave him some vocal coaching – shut your eyes and you’ll be convinced you’re listening to a great lost RADIOHEAD LP even before Thom shows up near the end. Reckless fave ANIKA also guests. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> NATURAL WONDER BEAUTY CONCEPT – Natural Wonder Beauty Concept LP (Mexican Summer)

Heavenly collaboration between ambient pop producer ANA ROXANNE and abstract dance innovator DJ PYTHON, melding PYTHON’s brittle, thorny excursions into IDM, trip-hop and reggaeton with ROXANNE’s lush, textured chords and ethereal voice. The result lands somewhere between YAEJI’s kitchen-sink expressionism, the mutant tresillo beat of ARCA and the softer electronic R&B of TIRZAH and ERIKA de CASIER. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> RUSSIAN CIRCLES – Station LP (Sargent House) *15th Anniversary – Ltd. Blue Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

“Chicago’s own RUSSIAN CIRCLES serve up their sophomore release to ours and the music loving public’s excitement. Station starts off harmless enough, with swelling and cinematic arrangements comprised mostly of guitars and minimal drumming. The second track, however commences into familiar territory – complex drumming, ominous bass, and heavy guitar riffage. Instrumental, as usual, the guys in RUSSIAN CIRCLES pick up right where they left off with 2006’s Enter, creating an eerie atmospheric collection of songs sure to please. Fans of the MARS VOLTA, PELICAN, or MONO will feel right at home with Station.” 15th anniversary edition available on independent record store exclusive transparent blue vinyl. RECOMMENDED!

>> THE YORUBA SINGERS – Ojinga’s Own LP (Soundway) *1974 album reissued on vinyl for the first time
