Reckless Records 9/8/23 New Releases

Deeper – Careful


>> ANJIMILE – The King LP (4AD) *Ltd. Yellow Vinyl

Sophomore record from Durham, NC’s ANJIMILE CHITHAMBO, shifting to darker territory from his debut to focus on his experience as a Black trans person in America with an ultimate feeling of uplift, delivered mostly in a stark combo of acoustic guitar and voice. RECOMMENDED!

>> BAR ITALIA – Tracey Denim LP (Matador) *Early 2023 album now available on vinyl

This Matador debut from London’s BAR ITALIA evokes the 90s underground in its shoegaze-y moodiness, snarling guitar fuzz choruses and cut-and-paste sample work, all drenched in atmospheric reverb. Like hearing THE STONE ROSES in the murky shadows of SLOWDIVE or BLONDE REDHEAD. Superb stuff that comes RECOMMENDED.

>> COURTNEY BARNETT – End of the Day LP (Mom + Pop) *Milky Clear Vinyl – Music from the 2021 Courtney Barnett documentary Anonymous Club

This soundtrack is an atypical release for BARNETT, comprised of seventeen short, improvised instrumentals that make use of empty space and ambient textures from her guitar. Certainly in the tradition of NEIL YOUNG’s Dead Man score, but with a lighter touch closer to RYLEY WALKER and SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE. RECOMMENDED!

>> THE CARETAKER – Persistent Repition of Phrases LP (History Always Favours The Winners) *2023 Reissue

THE CARETAKER aka JAMES KIRBY is an exquisite, ghostly journey, transporting the listener to another time, another place, another dream via old vinyl ala PHILLIP JECK. This album is truly remarkable and evokes an old-world nostalgia like few other modern releases. Astonishing and RECOMMENDED.

>> DEEPER – Careful! LP/CD/CS (Sub Pop) *Loser Edition Color Vinyl w/ poster & sticker while supplies last ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

Chicago’s own DEEPER drop their third LP and first on the mighty Sub Pop. This time out they brighten their post-punk/darkwave stylings with swaths of new wave color & art-pop drama a la prime PSYCHEDELIC FURS, TELEVISION, and THE CARS. If they continue down this path they might just have a Disintegration or Violator -level crossover down the line. You can take that to the bank. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> ALABASTER DePLUME – Come With Fierce Grace LP/CD (International Anthem)

After this third album in four years on Int’l Anthem, it can be safe to describe ALABASTER DePLUME’s output as “consistently excellent”. The music on Come With Fierce Grace showcases the best of DePLUME’s minimal third stream jazz composition, accentuated with vocal mantra melodies that embrace the sounds of gospel and folk, particularly in the folk-based classical music of artists ranging from MOONDOG to BELA BARTÓK. Don’t sleep on this one! RECOMMENDED.

>> TIM KINSELLA & JENNY PULSE – Giddy Skelter LP/CD (Kill Rock Stars) *Yellow Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

This 2023 album from these longtime collaborators has elements of feedback-sheet shoegaze, psych drone and dubby, lo-fi rock, tied together with ethereal vocals mostly led by PULSE. Think some SPACEMEN 3, some LUSH, a touch of GBV. RECOMMENDED!

>> TONY PRICE – Hit Piece LP (Telephone Explosion)

Canadian producer TONY PRICE follows up his L.I.E.S. release IBM Contra with a sultrier release that gets into deep-fried disco-house and 80s electro-synth pop. Ever want to feel like you’re the protagonist of an 80s Michael Mann film? Here’s your soundtrack. RECOMMENDED!
