RECKLESS RECORDS 9/1/23 NEW RELEASES
>> ZACH BRYAN – Summertime Blues LP (Warner) *2022 album finally available on LP! Self-titled album coming soon…
Stop-gap EP between albums from man of the hour ZACH BRYAN. We hear obvious country touchstones like TOWNES and PRINE (as well as Zach’s peers JASON ISBELL and TYLER CHILDERS), but there’s also a little BRUCE, some WESTERBERG, and at key moments even some golden age of confessional emo influence a la BRIGHT EYES and DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL. We’re really looking forward to whatever’s coming down the pike next for this dude… RECOMMENDED!
>> EARL SWEATSHIRT – Sick! LP (Warner) *Black or Indie Exclusive Light Blue Vinyl – Early 2022 album finally available on LP!
EARL continues his march towards Legend status with this 2022 masterpiece. The production (much of it handled by Earl himself with key contributions from BLACK NOI$E, THE ALCHEMIST and others) is still dense & unpredictable as all hell, and yet Earl’s barbs are more cutting than ever, slicing like a hammer through the crackle & pop. This might be the coldest he’s ever sounded on record, with a laser-focused clarity maybe brought on by age, loss, getting through the pandemic by the skin of his teeth, or all of the above. We’ve been there. We get it… and we say this is HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
>> HARUOMI HOSONO – N.D.E. LP (Rush Hour) *Import, Reissue – Now in stock!
The first ever vinyl reissue for Haruomi Hosono’s 1995 album N.D.E. is here courtesy of Rush Hour. Featuring collaborators such as YASUAKI SHIMIZU, BILL LASWELL & house legend FRANCOIS K, this album is a heady mix of techno, dub & VERY forward thinking electronic music. In many ways this reminds us of MANUEL GÖTTSCHING’s E2-E4 with Hosono’s attention to detail & crisp & clean production aesthetic. HEADPHONES RECOMMENDED.
>> HORRENDOUS – Ontogolical Mysterium LP/CD/CS (Season of Mist) *Black or Ltd. Red Vinyl
The Philadelphia band HORRENDOUS returns with their 5th album & it’s not too often a band makes such a creative leap forward this deep into their discography. This album is packed with ideas & top-notch playing & they effortlessly experiment with non-death metal genres throughout the entire record. The closest comparison we can think of is BLOOD INCANTATION’s Hidden History of the Human Race but this album is more progressive & even veers into IRON MAIDEN & RUSH territory, not kidding. This is easily one of our favorite records or 2023. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
>> JEFF ROSENSTOCK – Hellmode LP/CD/CS (Polyvinyl) *Ltd. Color Vinyl
Power-pop-punk (and -ska!) savant JEFF ROSENSTOCK drops another banger, his third on Polyvinyl. Never fear – Jeff’s still raging against the dying of the light with his high-BPM anthems, but those numbers are tempered this time by heaping teaspoons of acoustic guitar and even some spare folk songs. To put it to you in punk parlance – Hellmode is Jeff’s Nimrod. Real good stuff as always. RECOMMENDED!
>> SLOWDIVE – everything is alive LP/CD (Dead Oceans) *Black or Ltd. Clear Vinyl
Everything Is Alive is the sophomore album from SLOWDIVE’s incredibly successful 2nd phase. Their 2017 comeback was more present & less “shoegazey” than their original albums & this one follows in those footsteps though they’ve added more synth textures & acoustic guitars this time around. Neil Halstead & Rachel Goswell share vocal duties almost equally & as always they compliment each other perfectly. Overall we’d say this album is more quiet & dreamy than the last one & there’s even a MOGWAI-esque instrumental boldly placed 2nd in the album sequence. SLOWDIVE
is an all-time Reckless fave so we’re quite excited about this one. RECOMMENDED!
>> SPEEDY ORTIZ – Rabbit Rabbit LP/CD/CS (Wax Nine) *Ltd. Tri-Color Vinyl w/ air freshener while supplies last
The fourth record for Sadie Dupuis & co is their first in over five years, but with Dupuis staying busy on side projects, the resumption of SPEEDY ORTIZ goes on without a hitch. Punchy, glimmering power pop with its share of bubblegum melodies and earworm guitar hooks. RECOMMENDED!
>> WILCO – Sky Blue Sky 2LP (Nonesuch) *Ltd. Sky Blue Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶
Shaking off the more experimental vibe WILCO adapted on YHF and A Ghost Is Born, these Chicago natives return to their country roots with Sky Blue Sky. A twangy, jammy effort that really showcases the band’s ability to write catchy (but unconventional) pop tunes. Vintage Tweedy & Co! ** Limited 2023 reissue pressed on “Sky Blue” vinyl. RECOMMENDED!
