Fucked Up – One Day

RECKLESS RECORDS 1/27/23 NEW RELEASES

>> MEG BAIRD – Furling LP/CD/CS (Drag City)

Meg Baird has made some of our favorite albums over the years with groups like ESPERS & HERON OBLIVION, collaborations with Mary Lattimore & more. This 2023 solo album is a lovely mix of 60s British folk & 70’s Laurel Canyon vibes with Meg’s beautiful vocal vibrato. RECOMMENDED.

>> THE CURE – Wish 2LP (Elektra) *180g – 30th Anniversary Remaster now available on vinyl!

FINALLY!! The early 90s was a dark time for major label albums being issued on the vinyl in the U.S. The 1992 album Wish was only released in Europe & has been impossible to find here until now. The album was remastered by Robert Smith & cut at Abbey Road & it sounds FANTASTIC. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION POSSIBLE.

>> FUCKED UP – One Day LP/CD (Matador) *Black or Ltd. “Blue in Milky Clear” Vinyl

After two decades of pushing the boundaries of what “hardcore punk” can be, FUCKED UP set an extreme condition on their 6th LP & 2nd for Merge – each band member wrote & tracked their parts in separate, isolated 24-hour periods. The result is the most bracing & immediate music they’ve made in a real long time, with a back-to-basics approach to melody and riffage that must make their labelmate BOB MOULD very proud. The avenue they’re on can probably be better summed up as “hardcore power pop” now, but we’re always gonna be game to take the trip with them. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> JÓHANN JÓHANNSSON – Mandy (Soundtrack) LP (Invada) *Ltd. Magenta Vinyl now available – Back in stock!

Fans of JÓHANN JÓHANNSSON’s impressive musical career were gutted upon hearing of his untimely death in 2018. His final work was for the Nick Cage led revenge/horror film Mandy that has more or less already become a cult favorite. Jóhannsson explored the sounds of metal, black metal & dark ambient with much success & musicians such as Stephen O’Malley of SUNN O))) & Randall Dunn add some metallic pedigree to the soundtrack. Fans of Jóhann’s work, SUNN O))) & various Kranky droners (some pieces remind us of WINDY & CARL) will love this. RECOMMENDED. RIP JÓHANN JÓHANNSSON.

>> OOZING WOUND – We Cater To Cowards LP/CD (Thrill Jockey) *Black or Ltd. Silver Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

This fifth album from Chicago favorites OOZING WOUND ups the scuzz, channeling JESUS LIZARD, TAD and BIG BLACK as they rumble and scream their way across 10 new tracks. Darkly funny, pummeling and uptempo, this may be their best record yet. RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records 1/20/23 New Releases

John Cale – Mercy

RECKLESS RECORDS 1/20/23 NEW RELEASES

>> JOHN CALE – Mercy 2LP/CD (Domino) *Black or Ltd. Clear Violet Vinyl

An excellent return for the seemingly ageless wonder JOHN CALE (80 years old at the time of this release), embracing steely post-disco, dark ambience and cloudy, baroque theatricality. Mercy features an abundance of collaborators, including WEYES BLOOD, LAUREL HALO, SYLVAN ESSO and ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, and CALE utilizes each unique artistic touch for a record that is at once varied and unified. On Domino and RECOMMENDED!

>> ONE LAST WISH – 1986 LP (Dischord) *Ltd. Sea Glass Color Vinyl

The entire recorded works of ONE LAST WISH released nearly 12 years after their appearance on the STATE OF THE UNION comp. In between the RITES OF SPRING LP & 7″ ONE LAST WISH existed from August-November of 1986 then ended. Featuring Michael Hampton(of EMBRACE) & acting as a segway for Guy Picciotto & Brendan Canty leading to FUGAZI. A lost gem from the amazing “Revolution Summer” days of Washington DC, this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> MARGO PRICE – Strays LP/CD (Loma Vista) *Black or Ltd. Indie Exclusive “Purple Smoke” Vinyl – 1/13 late arrival now in stock!

Longtime fans of the brilliant MARGO PRICE might be thrown by the heavy “Sister Ray”-esque groove that opens her 4th LP. It’s a perfect intro to the sprawling nature of Strays, symbolic of Margo’s continued artistic evolution. Country renegades like LORETTA and WILLIE will always be touchstones for her, but the frequent guitar/organ interplay and raw vocals are also heavily evocative of classic ELVIS COSTELLO, PATTI SMITH, or TOM PETTY (fitting as former Heartbreaker MIKE CAMPBELL plays on several tracks – other guests include SHARON VAN ETTEN and LUCIUS). Even the more explicitly “country” stuff here has a darker, more psychedelic edge that only amplifies the stark vulnerability of the whole affair. We’re always psyched when an artist as skilled & singular as Margo doesn’t rest on their laurels and instead takes a big leap forward into the unknown. This is HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

>> THE SEA URCHINS – Stardust LP (1972 Records)

The 1972 label has collected all of the early 90s recordings by the Birmingham group THE SEA URCHINS. These songs originally released on the legendary Sarah Records label have never been reissued until now. Lo-fi post Velvets, post Modern Lovers indie pop that will appeal to fans of the Sarah label, early Rough Trade singles, TV PERSONALITIES etc… RECOMMENDED.

>> WORM – Gloomlord LP/CD (20 Buck Spin) *Remastered – Black or Ltd. Color Vinyl

Gloomlord was originally released in 2020 & has been pretty hard to find since then especially after the band blew up in 2021 with the great Foreverglade. The album has been remastered but don’t worry the scum is still on there. We’re truly glad to have this one in the racks. RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records 1/13/23 New Releases

Belle & Sebastian – Late Developers

RECKLESS RECORDS 1/13/23 NEW RELEASES

>> BELLE AND SEBASTIAN – Late Developers LP/CD (Matador)

Announced less than a week before its release, this 2023 album from indie stalwarts BELLE AND SEBASTIAN was tracked during the same sessions as 2022’s A Bit of Previous and features songs from B&S’s near thirty year long back catalogue. The music here taps into the more upbeat side of their discography, incorporating synths, harpsichord and other keys to both bolster and substitute the band’s guitar-oriented songwriting. On Matador and RECOMMENDED!

>> FEEBLE LITTLE HORSE – Hayday LP/CD (Saddle Creek) *Black or Ltd. Indie Exclusive Blue Vinyl

Pittsburgh’s FEEBLE LITTLE HORSE makes punchy, fuzz- drenched indie rock with a gauzy, shoegaze quality that reminds us a bit of Chicago’s own HORSEGIRL as well as (for a less “equestrian” comparison) ALVVAYS. Lovely stuff on Saddle Creek that comes RECOMMENDED!

>> SARATHY KORWAR – Kalak LP (Leaf) *Black or Ltd. Indie Exclusive Green Vinyl w/ alternate artwork

UK jazz visionary SARATHY KORWAR follows up his great 2018 project “More Arriving” with “KALAK”, centering his South Asian-inspired jazz around rhythmic elements that draw from spiritual music and electronic dance with a strong improvisational ethos. Featuring help from PHOTAY, TAMAR OSBORN and DANALOGUE (of THE COMET IS COMING and SOCCER96), this is a heady and tactile album that comes RECOMMENDED.

>> BILLY NOMATES – Cacti LP (Invada) *Ltd. Translucent Vinyl

UK singer-songwriter BILLY NOMATES follows up her 2020 debut with a post-punk record that throws away much of the genre’s hallmarks, embracing honey-sweet, almost country-ish vocal harmonies alongside icy electronics. Unique stuff that will still scratch that 90s alt-rock itch. RECOMMENDED.

>> OBITUARY – Dying of Everything LP/CD (Relapse) *Ltd. “Halloween” Orange or “Orange Krush” Vinyl – Signed CD Booklets available at Wicker Park ONLY while supplies last!

Tampa death metal legends OBITUARY are back with a new album to start out 2023. These guys are still tweaking their sound slowing things down some on a few tracks & even dipping their toes in some post-industrial territory. In the end it still sounds like the brutal band we know & love! RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records 1/6/23 New Releases

Floating Points – 2022

RECKLESS RECORDS 1/6/23 NEW RELEASES

>> BARRIO LINDO – Espuma de Mar LP (Shika Shika) *Ltd. White Vinyl

Argentinian producer Agustin Rivaldo embraces cumbia and spiritual jazz for his slice of folktronica, with a cadre of strings, woodwinds and keys to support. Lush experimental music that’s perfect for listening at home! RECOMMENDED.

>> FLOATING POINTS – 2022 12″ (Ninja Tune)

Super limited 12″-er from great UK producer FLOATING POINTS, compiling tracks he released across 2022 that range from ambient, jazz leaning excursions to club- friendly heaters. A perfect introduction to his sound that comes obviously RECOMMENDED!

>> FLOCKS – You Were Probably Younger Then 2LP (Folded) ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

Fantastic double album from this Chicago/ Cincinnati three-piece, making heady jazztronica that recalls BADBADNOTGOOD, KAMAAL WILLIAMS and classic IDM of the SQUAREPUSHER variety. Simultaneously detailed and expansive, technical and emotive, this comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> OVLOV – Buds LP (Exploding in Sound) *2021 Release now available on Ltd. Indie Exclusive Orange Vinyl

Cyclical guitar pop from OVLOV, who combine a wrapping guitar and vocals onto a nimble rhythm section. This has shades of the Chicago boys TWIN PEAKS, but with a breezier atmosphere that’s still not afraid to get both heavy and dirty. Good stuff! RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 12/16/22 New Releases

JID – The Forever Story

RECKLESS RECORDS 12/16/22 NEW RELEASES

>> JID – The Forever Story 2LP (Dreamville) *One of Reckless’ Best of 2022 finally available on vinyl!

Sophomore full length from Atlanta MC J.I.D. is a statement on family & artistic musicianship. The heart of The Forever Story is J.I.D. & his desire to make something more musical & expansive. There are beat changes on a number of tracks, & new flows & rhyme schemes all over the record. Also worth mentioning is the effort & work shown in Jiddy’s singing voice which really on display here. J.I.D. is one of the most interesting & talented rappers at work today & these are some of his best… RECOMMENDED!

>> JOHN McGUIRE – Pulse Music 2LP (Unseen Worlds)

Late 70’s recordings by John McGuire, a composer that studied with Stockhausen & Penderecki in Europe. Beautiful & rhythmic electronic pulses that vary in speed over the course of the pieces. Imagine Steve Reich’s compositions run through some 70s computer software & you might be able to imagine what this sounds like. RECOMMENDED!

>> MOTRIK – Artificial Head LP (Jealous Butcher) *Ltd. Green Vinyl

Nice physical edition of this 2020 album from Portland neo-psych band MOTRIK. With a name like that you know what sort of rhythms to expect. Think MINAMI DEUTSCH, GOAT, the chiller side of the OSEES and of course NEU. RECOMMENDED!

>> PANDA BEAR – Person Pitch 2LP (Domino) *2022 Reissue

NICE. Domino blesses us with a repress of PANDA BEAR’s magnum opus, still as fresh as ever 15 years later. Here’s what we had to say about it when it came out back in 2007: NOAH LENNOX (of ANIMAL COLLECTIVE fame) returns with his third solo release. This album replaces some of the acoustic elements of previous albums and introduces some samplers & electronics. Full of texture & synthesized sounds this album is a playful addition to LENNOX’s busy arrangements. An album that would surely make BRIAN WILSON proud, as it is non-stop, beautiful vocal harmonies. No lush/orchestral pop fan should be without this one! HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!

>> VARIOUS – Síntesis Moderna: An Alternative Vision of Argentinean Music 3LP (Soundway)

The latest Soundway compilation follows down the path of Doing it in Lagos and Ritmo Fantasia, focusing on synth-pop, boogie and early house from Argentina. Beautiful balearic grooves across the ocean that go in enjoyable directions. Compiled by Ric Piccolo & Ariel Harari and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

NEW MUSIC

Lots of music I enjoyed this year. I tried to narrow it to fifteen releases but this is just the tip of the iceberg.

HIRO AMA – Animal Emotions (PRAH)

  • Jazzy, organic, not really meant for the dancefloor; this is moreso “morning coffee house music”.

BIG THIEF – Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You Boycott Divestment Sanctions That’s My Grandma (4AD)

  • Yes the Tel Aviv show/Instagram defense debacle was a disappointment but the record is undeniable. Adrianne Lenker is probably indie rock’s  best melody songwriter, and the band navigates the tight-loose spectrum masterfully. As Roland Barthes once said, “Nobody’s perfect.”

JEREMIAH CHIU & MARIA SOFIA HONER – Recordings from the Åland Islands (International Anthem)

  • Even as a fan of ambient music I have limited patience for music that emphasizes ~field recordings~. I endorse this album as an exception that proves the rule.

EMISSIVE – City of Rooms (Telephone Explosion)

  • When they talk about “liquid” synth sounds, this is what they mean. 

FELBM – Elements of Nature (Soundway)

  • I don’t know if it’s better or worse that the artist’s name came from a faulty auto-correct. Regardless, this album scratched the classical minimalism itch. Like children’s music from a place that doesn’t exist.

HORSE LORDS – Comradely Objects (RVNG Intl.)

  • Turning a big dial that says “Dissonance” on it and constantly looking back at the audience for approval like a contestant on The Price is Right

TIM JACKIW – Sunset Over Saturn (Offworld)

  • Timmy J understands that the best dance music is incredibly corny. “Full Moon” is Song of the Year.

NU GENEA – Bar Mediterraneo (NG)

  • Everytime I listen to Khruangbin, I’m a little disappointed they don’t sound more like this record.

PHOTAY & CARLOS NIÑO – An Offering (International Anthem)

  • Another Int’l Anthem ambient record, and this one is a bit more “cosmic new age”. If not for luck and circumstance I feel as though I’d have been more susceptible than most to the influence of a charismatic midcentury guru.

PRATHLOONS – The Kansas Wind (Septic Jukebox)

  • Forget what I said about “Full Moon”. “Chagrin” is Song of the Year.

DAWN RICHARD & SPENCER ZAHN – Pigments (Merge)

  • I was kinda iffy on Second Line, but I absolutely loved this one. More music should embrace a misty, extraterrestrial atmosphere.

GEORGE RILEY – Running in Waves (PLZ Make It Ruins)

  • This plus her drum-n-bass mix Interest Rates, A Tape make her the official 2022 Heatseeker of the Year.

SESSA – Estrela Acesa (Mexican Summer)

  • New bossa nova/MPB that’s neither too loungy nor too indebted to the past. Perfect music for staring longingly into the eyes of your lover.

SOICHI TERADA – Asakusa Light (Rush Hour)

  • Terada is a master. Some of the brightest, most purely enjoyable music I heard all year.

ELI WINTER – Eli Winter (Three Lobed)

  • I’m an absolute sucker for pretty acoustic guitar, and this does a great job of striking a balance between pastoral Daniel Hecht-sounding stuff and more knotty Gastr del Sol-ish stuff (which makes sense with David Grubbs making an appearance)

COMPILATIONS & REISSUES

TIA BLAKE & HER FOLK-GROUP – Folksongs & Ballads (Ici Bientôt)
PATRICK COWLEY – Malebox (Dark Entries)
WILLIAM DOYLE – The Dream Derealised / Lightnesses I & II / Near Future Residence (Tough Love)
CHARLES STEPNEY – Step on Step (International Anthem)
NORMA TANEGA – I’m the Sky: Studio & Demo Recordings 1964-1971 (Anthology)

2022 YEAR OF POP SONGS
sorry for typos i just love albums so much!!!!

Always – Blue Rev (Polyvinyl) / what dyou say? i think this record owns. so does everybody else. big whoop.

Emperor X – The Lakes of Zone B & C / another gotta-hear-it-to-believe-it banger from our man in berlin. EX makes everybody else singing about politics look like Bono promoting his book at Davos. now with more piano ballads & we love to see it

Soichi Terada – Asakusa Light (Rush Hour) / consummate perfection. i rung in my 30th birthday on an airplane to LA, listening to this album and drinking a tiny airplane bottle of vodka. doesnt get better than that

Mister Goblin – Bunny / mr goblin does the hard work of being in indiana so you don’t have to. no working songwriter understands america as well and even if they did they wouldn’t have the tunes, the riffs, the extended harmony, the lapel-grapping guts. Damn

Smut – How the Light Felt (Bayonet) / year of pop songs. “after silver leaves”? 10/10 italian_chef_kiss.jpg

Friendship – Love the Stranger (Merge) / yknow how you keep saying you’re going to make it out to the beach this summer but then it’s october all of a sudden, year after year after–? uh oh. dont cry buddy. be cool. youre in a store

Oren Ambarchi – Shebang (Drag City) / dope that this record seemed to break through to the p4k set a little. reminds me of watching a rainstorm start to happen. incredible

1975 – Being Funny in a Foreign Language / why is this bull shit on here? am i doing a bit? is this band actually good or do they suck ass? is the pastiche hilarious or irritating? i truly dont know folx. all i know is if you are reading this AND you like this band YOU MUST GO LISTEN TO THE BLUE NILE & PREFAB SPROUT. thats a direct order from your superior officer

Ex-Void – Bigger than Before (Don Giovanni) / like i said: year of pop songs

special categories ——-

THE MAHLER 3 AWARD FOR EXTRAORDINARY LENGTH
Richard Dawson – the Ruby Cord / I will probably only ever listen to this twice but holy hell it’s wild, disquieting, etc. if you know you know

THE SAM BANKMAN-FRIED AWARD FOR CONFLICT OF INTEREST
Prathloons – The Kansas Wind / Yes ….these are my “buds” But Also this album whips. midwest slow cigarette vibe is back and its better than ever. clarinets? They’re Back Too. thank you for your compliance with this aesthetic

THE BETHS AWARD FOR BEST BETHS ALBUM OF THE YEAR
the Beths — Expert in a Dying Field (carpark)

THE “DO YOU HAVE FRANK OCEAN VINYL” AWARDS FOR RECORDS WE DO NOT HAVE IN OUR STORE

The World Without Parking Lots – You’ll Have To Take My Word For It / lovely (and, i believe, local?) wintertime singer-songwriter record, really genuinely clever and moving tunes

Shinichi Atobe – Love of Plastic (DDS) / bobbing my head til it falls off

Bats – Blue Cabinet

MUST GRIP REISSUED / ARCHIVAL STUFF:
Tall Dwarfs — Unravelled ’81-’02 (Merge)
Charles Stepney — Step on Step (Int’l Anthem)
Hypnotic Guitar of John Ondalo (Mississippi)
Go Sailor – s/t reissue (Slumberland)

fav songs:
Big Thief – “Little Things” – in the end the LP didnt work for me (take no pleasure in reporting this etc etc) but this is one of the best songs i’ve ever heard
Caroline No – “Anna’s on the Radio” from s/t album (Grapefruit)
Empath – “Born 100 Times” from Visitor (Fat Possum)
song of da year: “Freeway in Heaven” by Emperor X i think

a few notable shows:
Stereolab + Fievel Is Glauque @ the riv. listen to fievel is glauque!!!!!
Emperor X @ mustache
The Chills @ sleeping village
friendship / tenci / advance base @ hideout
beth orton @ irish american community center

that’s it for me thanks

<< STEVEN RAHMAN >>

2022 has been the longest year of my life & these were the records I caught that I wanted to recommend to other people in no particular order…

  • Gianni Brezzo “Tutto Passa” – There’s something so amazingly relaxing about this record. It’s the sonic equivalent of a Hot Toddy. It’s warm, & comforting, & sophisticated. The feeling of a new favorite place; something you discovered by chance but feels like home…
  • Saba “Few Good Things” – There aren’t many MCs who can channel nostalgia the way that Saba can. On Few Good Things, we get to see Saba challenge, change, & interrogate the ways his success has interacted with the tragedies he & his have experienced over the last few years… The productions here are always soulful, with deep harmonies & even on the hardest songs here, the grooves are creative & enveloping.
  • Danger Mouse & Black Thought “Cheat Codes” – I’ll admit at first, I was a little disappointed that this record wasn’t the Tariq Trotter show. This is the closest thing we’ve ever gotten to a solo full-length from the Roots front man & I was kinda hoping for an hour of Black Thought rapping over straight breakbeats… But this is a collaboration, & the beats that Danger Mouse provides are perfect reminders that Thought can rap over ANYTHING! The rhymes are on point, & the guests are amazing, & it might not be the album I was waiting for, but it is everything I wanted.
  • J.I.D. “Forever Story” – J.I.D. is a Musician. The Rapper/ Singer is on a mission to make sure you know it. Opening the record with a recorded count-in & bringing a beat switch to almost every track on the record, the record is consistently displaying the care taken to make a piece of art that will stand the test of time… Also… Jiddy can RAP. Non-stop flows, metaphors, similes, imagery, rhymes… magnificent.
  • The Plosivs “Plosivs” – There’s not a whole lot to say about this album. It’s just good. Swami John Reis (Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu, RftC), & Rob Crow (Pinback) got together with some friends & wrote some rocking, guitar heavy songs & recorded them. 33 minutes of fast, powerful, Pop songs, heavy on the melody, with driving propulsive Rock n’ Roll attitude.
  • Ogi “Monologues EP”
  • Open Mike Eagle “Component System With the Auto Reverse”
  • Umi “Forest in the City”
  • Lucky Daye “Candy Drip”
  • Dezron Douglas “Atalaya”
  • Samm Henshaw “Untidy Soul”
  • Vic Spenser & Small Pro “Mudslide”
  • Earthgang “Ghetto Gods”
  • Cecile Mclorin Salvant “Ghost Song”
  • Smut “How the Light Felt”

Reckless Records 12/9/22 New Releases

Dead Meadow – Force Form Free

RECKLESS RECORDS 12/9/22 NEW RELEASES

>> DEAD MEADOW – Force Form Free LP/CD (Blues Funeral)

DEAD MEADOW returns!! There was a few years where these guys were on a serious tear. They’ve been on hiatus for a bit but we’re really glad they’re back. They’ve changed things up a little, going for  more of an expansive, psychedelic doom instrumental trip. You have to wait until track 4 forthe vocals to finally arrive & it’s a pretty mellow track, reminding us more of Jason Simon’s solo stuff. Fans of their previous records might be surprised by the lack of vocals but overall this still has a DEAD MEADOW vibe. RECOMMENDED.

>> LELAND WHITTY (of BADBADNOTGOOD) – Anyhow LP (Innovative Leisure)

This solo record from BADBADNOTGOOD’s LELAND WHITTY makes good use of his Swiss Army Knife-like abilities
on guitar, sythnesizer, woodwinds & strings, allowing for a totalizing compositional approach in the vein of DAVID AXELROD and ARTHUR VEROCAI. Lush, textured and layered, this is perfect for fans of BBNG, 70s HERBIE HANCOCK and the groovier side of the label International Anthem. RECOMMENDED!

>> WILD NOTHING – Nocturne: 10th Anniversary Edition LP (Captured Tracks) 

10th anniversary edition of the fantastic 2nd record by Jack Tatum’s WILD NOTHING now on marble vinyl with new artwork. This is one of the finest moments for the band & the record has aged very well. Top-notch dream pop for fans of the early days of CAPTURED TRACKS, 80s Flying Nun bands etc…RECOMMENDED!

>> VARIOUS – Artificial Intelligence LP (Warp) *30th Anniversary – Remastered

Warp is closing out 2022 with a new remaster of their landmark 1992 compilation, featuring early cuts from APHEX TWIN (as THE DICE MAN), RICHIE HAWTIN (as UP!) and AUTECHRE amongst other Warp staples. History on wax here! RECOMMENDED!

>> VARIOUS – Padang Moonrise: The Birth of the Modern Indonesian Recording Industry 2LP (Soundway) *w/ bonus 7″

Excellent compilation from Soundway detailing music from Indonesia during the middle of the 20th century, a period of extreme political violence that also saw the simultaneous emergence of a recording industry. The music here draws from both Western styles of jazz, afro-latin music, lounge and doo-wop as well as styles from the regions such as Gamelan, Gambus and Kroncong. For fans of Ethiopiques and South East Asian “nuggets” compilations, this comes RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records 11/25 & 12/2/22 New Releases

Ganser – Nothing You Do Matters EP

RECKLESS RECORDS 11/25 & 12/2/22 NEW RELEASES

>> MABE FRATTI – Se Ve Desde Aqui LP (Unheard of Hope)

For her third album, Mexico City-based cellist MABE FRATTI spaces things out, detangling the textures and loops that defined her earlier releases to something more stark and sparse. Se Ve Desde Aqui embraces these open landscapes, fusing acoustic free jazz with ambient pop and minimal wave, finding these songs in a style not unlike ARTHUR RUSSELL’s World of Echo or contemporary minimal artists like FENNESZ and Chicago composer GIA MARGARET. Absolutely RECCOMENDED!

>> FRET – BECAUSE OF THE WEAK 2LP (L.I.E.S.) *MICK HARRIS (of NAPALM DEATH, LULL, SCORN)

Long-awaited full length release from legendary drummer/ producer MICK HARRIS out via LIES records. BECAUSE OF THE WEEK is 10 tracks of crushing, black hole industrial techno. An unrelenting onslaught of beat-down mutations mixed with Mick’s dub sensibilities, bringing texture and deepatmosphere to the album. An incredibly solid release for those who like it on the extreme side and pushed into the red. RECOMMENDED!

>> GANSER – Nothing You Do Matters EP 12″ (Felte) *Ltd. Red Gel Picture Disc

The talented Chicago quartet GANSER get one in just before the end of ’22 with this EP. With production from LIARS’ Angus Andrew, GANSER continue to create top-notch rhythmic post-punk. Angus’ production definitely lends a bit of a LIARS vibe to the songs which certainly isn’t a bad thing. RECOMMENDED!

>> KATIE ALICE GREER – Barbarism LP/CD (Four Four)

This first solo record from ex-PRIESTS vocalist KATIE ALICE GREER is a thrilling left turn: Greer trades in the jagged post-punk of Priests for spacious, textured electronics, crooning nostalgic over dystopian noise. Fantastic music here that comes RECOMMENDED!

>> KEKHT ARAKH – Night & Love & Pale Swordsmen LP/CD/CS (Sacred Bones) *Reissues (sold separately) each available on Black or Ltd. Metallic Silver Vinyl

We’re really excited that Sacred Bones has reissued some of the albums by the Ukraine based, one-man black metal project KEKHT ARAKH. The project is led by the mysterious entity Crying Orc (best black metal name ever) & his music is a mix of low-fi early 90s sounding black metal with occasional acoustic pieces, synth passages & even some minimalist piano compositions. It all works really well together & makes for some of the more interesting releases in this style that we’ve heard in awhile. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 11/18/22 New Releases

Weyes Blood – And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow

RECKLESS RECORDS 11/18/22 NEW RELEASES

>> BITCHIN BAJAS – Switched on Ra LP (Drag City) *Now available on vinyl!

ThIs was released digitally in late 2021 & now it’s finally here physically. Chicago astral travelers pay tribute to the ultimate spaceman SUN RA with this tape of covers. Analog synth mastery and surprising vocal treatments from some local faves. RECOMMENDED.

>> RICHARD DAWSON – The Ruby Cord 2LP/CD (Weird World) *Black or Ltd. Sky Blue Vinyl w/ 12″x12″ art print

The Ruby Cord completes a sort of album trilogy for English avant-folkie RICHARD DAWSON, going from past (Peasant) to present (2020) now to 500 years in the future. DAWSON builds a future world with sounds that branch to jazzy prog-folk, sparse electronics and glitches that seem to deconstruct his world’s reality. Like other DAWSON LPs, The Ruby Cord is not for the faint of heart (or ear), but it will reward multiple listens, revealing themes and sonic ideas deep within these compositions. RECOMMENDED.

>> DEZRON DOUGLAS – ATALAYA LP/CD (International Anthem)

Bassist DEZRON DOUGLAS has appeared on a few Int’l Anthem’s titles, notably with harpist BRANDEE YOUNGER on the quarantine-inspired Force Majeure and aboard MAKAYA McCRAVEN’s epic Universal Beings. ATALAYA is DOUGLAS’ first as bandleader, embracing the soul-forward free jazz of later COLTRANE and the rhythmic roots thrust of peak-era MINGUS. One of Int’l Anthem’s more purely “jazz” releases of 2022 (at least in terms of instrumentation), this is far from straight ahead, veering into high celestial territories and soulful sojourns. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

>> PANDA BEAR & SONIC BOOM – Reset LP (Domino) *Black or Ltd. Yellow Vinyl – Now available on vinyl!

After having collaborated on each other’s solo records over the past decade, ANIMAL COLLECTIVE’s PANDA BEAR and the great SONIC BOOM (ex-SPACEMEN 3) share equal billing on this 2022 album. The sound they chase is rooted in 60s pop music, but their approach is uniquely sample-based, crafting sugary melodies, rich honeyed harmonies and propulsive rhythms towards lite psychedelia that seems like THE BEACH BOYS or THE ASSOCIATION thrown into a time machine. Some of either artists’ best work in a few years, this comes RECOMMENDED.

>> SPECIAL INTEREST – Endure LP/CD (Rough Trade)

We’ve had our eyes out over the past few years for art punks SPECIAL INTEREST, who across two LPs and a handful of EPs have cultivated a sound that mixes in disco, house, industrial and funk, creating a virile dance punk concoction that on their third album Endure comes to a thrilling head. Embracing both a militaristic stance to institutional oppression and violence and a warm championing of queer sexuality, these songs hiss, pulsate, rumble and pummel in equal measure. One of the best records of the year. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> WEYES BLOOD – And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow LP/CD/CS (Sub Pop) *Black or Ltd. “Loser Edition” Color Vinyl

Natalie Mering’s 5th WEYES BLOOD album is yet another cosmic leap forward in her already excellent body of work. And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow is every bit as epic in scope as Titanic Rising and her songs still swell with echoes of 70’s folk pop & AM Gold like NILSSON, CAROLE KING and THE CARPENTERS, but now it feels like Mering is fully assured in this style and ready to wield it like a superpower. The lush musicality is often in stark contrast to the lyrical content, which deals eloquently with feelings we all know too well from pandemic times – isolation, regret, and yearning to see a little light. The effect is thrillingly subversive & transformative, like a great magic trick. Special guests here include ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER, HAND HABITS’ MEG DUFFY, and MARY LATTIMORE. This is an undeniable Album of the Year contender coming in under the wire. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
