Reckless Records 4/5 New Releases

JORDANA & TV GIRL – Summer’s Over EP (Grand Jury)

Fantastic EP from two great newer bands JORDANA & TV GIRL. Lo-fi pop with TV GIRL’s sampling style mostly leading the way. Sort of like a mix of early BECK & Phoebe Bridgers if you can imagine that with some dream pop elements.

MOUNT KIMBIE – The Sunset Violent LP/CD (Warp) black or orange vinyl

London electronica duo MOUNT KIMBIE follow up their 2-in-1 split LP “Die Cuts / City Planning” with a collaborative album that leans more into the post-punk side of their sound reminiscent of KING KRULE (who happens to feature on two tracks here).

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Congo Funk! Sound Madness From the Shores of the Mighty Congo River, Kinshasa / Brazzaville 1969-1982 LP/CD (Analog Africa)

The 38th Analog Africa compilation focuses on Central Africa, in particular the twin cities of Kinshasa and Brazzaville sitting on opposite sides of the Congo River. Influenced by the American funk & psych music of the era – a JAMES BROWN performance preceding the historic Ali/Foreman “Rumble in the Jungle” in 1974 made huge waves – Congolese musicians adopted electric guitars and transformed the elliptical, cycling rumba into their own hybrid funk, while launching a fleet of independent record labels. Fantastic stuff that comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Triangulos De Luz Y Espacios De Sombra LP (Seance Centre)

The excellent Seance Center label has put together a really cool compilation of Mexican experimental,electronic music taken from rare cassettes, private pressings & previously unreleased sources. The title is taken from a public access TV show which translates to “Triangles of Light and Spaces of Shadow” in English. These recordings provide really cool insight into Mexican electronic music of the mid 80s-90s. Fans of the Music From Memorycomps should take note. RECOMMENDED.
