Reckless Records 5/31/24 New Releases

GOAT GIRL – Below the Waste LP/CD (Rough Trade)

2024 record from London band GOAT GIRL, incorporating dreamy synth-pop and grungy, guitar-driven alt-rock for a moody collection of songs that allow the band to play around with quiet/loud dynamics and sound design textures. Good stuff!

PEGGY GOU – I Hear You LP/CD (XL) black or blue vinyl

South Korean DJ & model PEGGY GOU has been a star of the Berlin dance scene, having released a miniature fleet of singles and mixes (including her own DJ-Kicks mix back in 2019). “I Hear You” is her first full length, pushing headlong into her signature bubblegum deep house and earworm dance-pop melodies. Summery, bright and yet effortlessly cool, this is one of the most inviting dance records of the year that will most likely make its way onto many year-end lists including some of ours! RECOMMENDED!

MARGO GURYAN – Words & Music 3LP box set (Numero)

Numero has been teasing this release of the complete recordings by Margo Guryan for a while & it’s finally here. Guryan had an interesting career starting out as a jazz singer somewhere in the middle of Ella Fitzgerald & Chet Baker. She also studied music with Ornette Coleman & Don Cherry. She is best known for the album “Take A Picture” that was released in 1968 without much fanfare. Since then it’s become a cult classic fitting somewhere in a realm with other baroque popsters like FREE DESIGN, LEFT BANKE & Francoise Hardy. Having her complete musical journey in one place is quite special. RECOMMENDED.

NXWORRIES – Why Lawd? LP/CD (Stones Throw) black or color vinyl

The duo of ANDERSON .PAAK and KNXWLEDGE are back eight years after their full length “Yes Lawd!” with another collection of smoky neo-soul cuts. PAAK made waves a few years back with his glammy collab with BRUNO MARS as SILK SONIC, but his voice is also perfectly suited for KNXWLEDGE’s gospel/R&B-infused hip-hop production, making for a more introspective project. With features from SNOOP DOGG, EARL SWEATSHIRT, THUNDERCAT & H.E.R. among others, “Why Lawd?” is a pitch perfect return for the duo. RECOMMENDED!

SOFIA BOLT – Vendredi Minuit LP (Born Losers)

This is the 2nd album by the talented Los Angeles via Paris artist Amelie Rousseaux. Jangly guitar songs with baroque pop moments. Think Velvets, GALAXIE 500, Twin Peaks roadhouse dreamy pop, Francoise Hardy, STEREOLAB & some occasional furious moments that dip into TELEVISION. This is a really deep record that reveals itself more &  more with repeat listens. RECOMMENDED.
