RECKLESS RECORDS 11/3/23 NEW RELEASES
>> A.S.O. – a.s.o. LP (Low Lying)
A.S.O. is a duo featuring two Australian ex-pats living in Berlin. Lewie Day is well-known in the dance community as Tornado Wallace & he’s released stuff on numerous labels over the years. When she’s not singing in bands, Alia Seror-O’Neill does some acting on the side. The two artists compliment each other perfectly with Day’s efficient trip-hop style beats & production & PORTISHEAD/BROADCAST sounding vocals from Seror O’Neill. Fans of 90s/early 00s trip hop & shoegaze need to check this out. RECOMMENDED!
>> BAR ITALIA – The Twits LP/CD (Matador)
Following hot off the heels of their excellent Tracey Denim LP from earlier this year, BAR ITALIA keeps busy with The Twits, expanding from moody, lo-fi shoegaze and alt-rock into tape-affected psychedelia. Hard to say if the title is at all inspired by Roald Dahl – the band can be a bit cheeky with references, or otherwise just detached – or if it’s a dyslexic form of “twist,” but either way it’s a great follow up. RECOMMENDED!
>> HOTLINE TNT – Cartwheel LP/CD (Third Man) *Indie Exclusive Color Vinyl expected 11/6
Brooklyn songwriter Will Anderson makes the jump from lo-fi DIY recordings to big money Third Man Records for his 2nd LP under the HOTLINE TNT banner. Cartwheel splits the difference perfectly between capital H Heavy shoegaze and bright power pop with a hardcore sensibility, guaranteed to give you the same endorphin rush you might get from classic MBV and PUMPKINS but also from Will’s peers like DAZY and WEDNESDAY. These songs have some of the best riffs & catchiest hooks we’ve heard all year. If we make it through the winter, this one’s gonna sound real good with the windows down on that first day of Spring. PLAY IT LOUD. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
>> SEN MORIMOTO – Diagnosis LP/CD (City Slang) *Neon Yellow Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶
We’re really excited to be carrying this record from local luminary SEN MORIMOTO, who jumps across genre on Diagnosis. You’ll hear touches of fusion jazz, funk, emo, R&B and theatrical art rock, tied together with his clear and nimble voice. RECOMMENDED!
>> RESAVOIR – Resavoir LP/CD (International Anthem) *Black or Ltd. Orange “Dusk Cloud” Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶
The Will Miller-led jazz project RESAVOIR returns with new music, drawing from the same well of third stream jazz, hip-hop and R&B for a more introspective result. This 2023 iteration showcases a gentler, more patient approach that leans into ambient and new age music and yet still maintains the lush complexities of its 2019 predecessor. Featuring contributions from WHITNEY’s Julien Ehrlich and Max Kakacek, as well as Macie Stewart and Jeremy Cunningham. RECOMMENDED.
>> MARNIE STERN – The Comeback Kid LP/CD/CS (Joyful Noise)
Guitar wizard MARNIE STERN winds back the clock on her first solo album since 2013 (!). She brings the thunder right out of the gate, assuaging any doubters who would think she lost a step in that time away. If anything, time has only reaffirmed & strengthened her idiosyncrasies. Marnie’s trademarks – math riffage, insane fingertapping, and perfectly deployed power chords – are all in play, plus curveballs like a surf-rock Morricone cover and some of the most straightforward pop songs she’s ever made. This is as joyous, weird, and life-affirming as indie rock gets. RECOMMENDED!
