Reckless Records 12/8/23 New Releases


>> BRIGITTE CALLS ME BABY – This House is Made of Corners EP (ATO) *Clear Pink Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

BRIGITTE CALLS ME BABY is a fantastic name for a band. We have to start there, but that’s certainly not the end for this fantastic Chicago group. They’re going to have a bit of a hard time shaking comparisons to THE SMITHS due to the velvety vocal stylings of Wes Leavins & the sort of jangly guitar parts here. It also owes a lot to the guitar rock of the early 2000s with a little bit of ARCTIC MONKEYS & THE STROKES thrown in. Their sounds & influences are quickly recognizable without feeling derivative at all & if you like any of the aforementioned bands, or maybe you’re into ROY ORBISON or CHRIS ISAAK… You should grab this one. RECOMMENDED!

>> DJ RASHAD – Double Cup 2LP (Partisan) *10th Anniversary – Ltd. Gold Vinyl w/ alternate gold foil artwork ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

Hard to believe it’s been 10 years of Double Cup. Here’s what we had to say about this great Chicago record back in 2013. We’ve come a long way… “Sadly, this is the final album from Chicago’s DJ RASHAD, who passed away in 2014. But what a final long-player! Double Cup is easily the biggest Footwork album that’s been released thus far. FYI, the name of the Footwork genre is born of a dancing style associated with the music, which evolved from juke. Repetitive, bass-heavy dance music that will appeal to House fans, for sure.” RIP DJ RASHAD! RECOMMENDED!

>> INCENDIARY – Change the Way You Feel About Pain LP (Closed Casket Activities) *Summer 2023 album
now available – Color Vinyl

Long Island cult punk heroes INCENDIARY return with (the awesomely titled) Change the Way You Feel About Pain, the long-awaited follow-up to 2017’s killer Thousand Mile Stare. We’re happy to report that this is worth the wait and then some. Bone-crushing riffs and breakdowns pile up relentlessly under Brendan Garrone’s blunt-force vocals, which are often a ringer for Zach De La Rocha and make this a worthwhile pickup for fans of RAGE just as much for the NYHC heads. Every song here is prime heel wrestler entrance theme music – real ones know. This is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> JUDICIARY – Flesh + Blood LP (Closed Casket Activities) *Spring 2023 album now available – Color Vinyl

West TX thrash/hardcore crossover goons JUDICIARY drop another heater on Closed Casket Activities. They push the metallic edge of their music even further here with help from producer ARTHUR RIZK, already a legend in the scene for his work on the classic POWER TRIP albums. Monstrous riffs course through this thing like sandworms while perfectly calibrated breakdowns and masterful shredding bring the violence. THIS RULES. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> MISERABLE PEOPLE – Miserable EP CS (Rat’s Pizza) ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

Chicago’s own MISERABLE PEOPLE deliver their debut EP of 5 fast & angry songs. Clocking in at barely 10 minutes, it’s the feeling of existential dread & hopelessness boiled down to its most immediate & essential. Reckless veteran Dylan Sowle delivers vocals that would fit in nicely on an SST Records comp, with music that straddles the line between thrash punk & post-hardcore. For fans of: RITES OF SPRING, CIRCLE JERKS, the absurdity of human existence. RECOMMENDED!
