Reckless Records 9/23/22 New Releases

Makaya McCraven – In These Times

RECKLESS RECORDS 9/23/22  NEW RELEASES

ALEX G – God Save The Animals LP/CD (Domino) *Black or Indie Exclusive Ltd. Clear Vinyl

This 2022 album from Alex Giannascoli takes on a more pious approach (as the title implies), adopting a tone of semi-serious, semi-tongue-in-cheek evangelical fervor to explore real concepts of forgiveness, love, morality and redemption. This is perhaps the crispest sounding ALEX G record to date, with the disparate styles of country, indie folk and emo transmitting through clearer than ever. A totally unique record. EXCELLENT and RECOMMENDED!

DUSTER – Together LP/CD/CS (Numero Group) *Black or Ltd. Clear Smoke Vinyl

Together is the fantastic 2022 album by the San Jose group DUSTER. Similar to HUM, another band that broke up many years ago then reformed to make great new music, DUSTER is making some of their best music yet. The album has a sort of lo-fi & warm tone to it with dead sounding drums, tape warbled guitar sounds & buried vocals – that classic slowcore move. RECOMMENDED.

ICEAGE – Shake The Feeling: Outtakes & Rarities 2015-2021 LP/CD (Mexican Summer) *Black or Ltd. Red Vinyl

Collection of “misfit children” from Danish post-punk band ICEAGE – outtakes and non-album cuts from across their three most recent LPs. Don’t be mistaken; these songs are not disposable! The band’s raw energy shines through here brightly. Fantastic and RECOMMENDED!

MAKAYA McCRAVEN – In These Times LP/CD (International Anthem) *Black or Ltd. Ivory Vinyl

Despite releasing 6 records since 2015, the Chicago-based percussionist & composer MAKAYA McCRAVEN has been slowly sculpting this album that entire time. With a large group of talented collaborators including Junius Paul, JEFF PARKER, Macie Stewart & Brandee Younger to name a few, McCraven has created a highly listenable collection of rhythmic songs that almost all eras of jazz post 1960s, 70s film soundtracks ala Quincy Jones, 90s/00s post rock & more. RECOMMENDED!!

THE MOVERS – Vol. 1: 1970-1976 LP (Analog Africa)

Analog Africa continues their hot streak, releasing a compilation of tunes from THE MOVERS, purveyors of Zimbabwe’s Mbaqanga (aka Township Jive). The name does not lie here; the groups’ easy-shuffling rhythms are infectious, sounding like a Soweto-adjacent version of THE METERS or BOOKER T & THE MGs with their electric organ and tight drums. This compiles music from their golden era in the early 1970s. Absolutely glorious music here that is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

MYSTIC REVELATION OF RASTAFARI – Grounation 3LP (Soul Jazz)

ESSENTIAL reissue of this classic Rastafarian record by the Jamaican drummer COUNT OSSIE. Rastafarians were considered outcasts in Jamaica in the 50s when Ossie was getting his start but they gradually became accepted in the music scene. In 1973 Count Ossie released this incredible album of music dedicated to the Africans that were brought to Jamaica as slaves. Heavy & repetitive percussion with an almost improvisational jazz feel. This album will appeal to fans of 70s spiritual jazz like EDDIE GALE, Chicago’s own PHILIP COHRAN & even the early MOONDOG records at times. RECOMMENDED.

ALHAJI WAZIRI OSHOMA – The Muslim Highlife of Alhaji Waziri Oshoma: World Spirituality Classics 3 2LP (Luaka Bop)

The latest entry in Luaka Bop’s World Spirituality Classics series (following their superb compilations of ALICE COLTRANE’s ashram music and American gospel funk) this time turns towards a unique musical slice in Islam with Nigerian bandleader ALHAJI SIR WAZIRI OSHOMAH. This music blends the elliptical patterns of highlife with electronics reminiscent of the great WILLIAM ONYEABOR and the more raw sounds of Edo Funk coming from Benin City, all with an ecstatically religious bent. Beautiful and RECOMMENDED!

VIEUX FARKA TOURÉ & KHRUANGBIN – Ali LP/CD (Dead Oceans) *Black or Ltd. Jade Vinyl

The Houston trio KHRUANGBIN’s collaboration with LEON BRIDGES seemed so logical when we heard it that it seemed like something that would inevitably happen someday. The same can be said with this collab with Mali guitar legend Vieux Farka Touré – it just makes sense. Nice, mellow vibes backed by the great KHRUANGBIN rhythm section & plenty of space for Touré to stretch out on guitar & vocals. Really great stuff. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 9/16/22 New Releases

Death Cab For Cutie – Asphalt Meadows

RECKLESS RECORDS 9/16/22  NEW RELEASES

AZIZ & FRIENDS – Waves of Peace LP (Morning Trip)

Wonderful reissue of this 1983 album from the sitar player AZIZ. Gentle synthesizer drone mixed in with sitar, flute & tambura as well as some sounds from nature. Remastered on Morning Trip Records and TOTALLY RECOMMENDED.

THE BETHS – Expert In A Dying Field LP/CD/CS (Carpark) *Ltd. Yellow Vinyl

More crunchy power-pop from this Kiwi quartet on their third LP, refining some of the uptempo, early-WEEZER-y parts of Jump Rope Gazers with wry singer-songwriter influence in the vein of a PHOEBE BRIDGERS or COURTNEY BARNETT. Excellent stuff on Carpark Records – RECOMMENDED!

THE BLACK ANGELS – Wilderness of Mirrors 2LP/CD (Partisan) *Black or Ltd. Indie Exclusive Color Vinyl

The first new album for THE BLACK ANGELS in five years is well worth the wait, as the sun-soaked psychedelia of their previous work gets infused with Mellotron and strings. Still more than a fair share of guitar fuzz on this one tho, often sounding like an OSEES album caught in the middle of a Jodorowsky film. RECOMMENDED!

GLORIA DE OLIVEIRA & DEAN HURLEY – Oceans of Time LP/CD (Sacred Bones) *Ltd. Lavender Swirl Vinyl

Gloria de Oliveira is a German/Brazilian singer & songwriter & Dean Hurley has been collaborating with David Lynch in sound design since 2006. Mellow dream pop with lush, orchestral passages that remind us of COCTEAU TWINS, Julee Cruise etc… RECOMMENDED.

THE DEAD TEXAN – The Dead Texan LP (Kranky) *First time ever on vinyl!

The DEAD TEXAN is a continuation of STARS OF THE LID member ADAM WILTZE’s nocturnal musical fumblings; piano and strings give a cinematic field to the guitar and synth processes. FIRST EVER VINYL PRESSING FINALLY IN 2022! HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE – Asphalt Meadows LP/CD (Barsuk) *Black or Ltd. Indie Exclusive Pink Vinyl

DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE return after a four year absence, and like most of us nowadays they sound absolutely psyched to be able to get out of the house and play some music with good friends. John Congleton’s rich technicolor production perfectly complements Ben Gibbard’s bittersweet indie pop jams, which at their best evoke the band’s mid-aughts peak but also Reckless faves like NEW ORDER, THE CURE, and ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN. This feels like a statement from a beloved band that still has someting to say. It’s our favorite Death Cab album in a real long time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

RANDY HOLDEN – Population III LP/CD (Riding Easy)

40 years after recording the legendary POPULATION II album, the guitar god Randy Holden teamed up with members of CACTUS & drummer Bobby Rondinelli who played with BLACK SABBATH, BLUE OYSTER CULT & RAINBOW to name a few (!!) to make POPULATION III. Now 10 years later those sessions have finally been released. This truly does sound like a logical extension of Holden’s classic psych/proto-metal album & this also would have fit right in the 2010 sound ala reformed PENTAGRAM, Brant Bjork etc…RECOMMENDED!

NECROPHOBIC – The Nocturnal Silence LP/CD (Century Media)

ATTENTION 90s SWEDISH DEATH METAL FANS!! This classic from 1993 has been remastered & is finally available again courtesy of Century Media. Fans of other legends like ENTOMBED, DISSECTION, GRAVE, etc…will want to pick this up. RECOMMENDED.

BILL ORCUTT – Music For Four Guitars LP (Palilalia)

On this 2022 album, Bill Orcutt is on the electric guitar & the sounds are trebly & brittle. Four tracks of guitars that sometimes sound randomly layered or at other times like a demented Saharan guitar band, isolated Beefheart guitar tracks or a loop pedal gone rogue. Wild stuff! RECOMMENDED!

YOUNG JESUS – Young Jesus LP (Saddle Creek)

Total “zag” from YOUNG JESUS and John Rossiter (who is now the sole member), who brings his rich tenor to the forefront with a more spacious, lush and spiritually focused sound. Some interesting sound design on this one as well with field recordings and white noise. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 9/9/22 New Releases

The Afghan Whigs – How Do You Burn?

RECKLESS RECORDS 9/9/22 NEW RELEASES

THE AFGHAN WHIGS – How Do You Burn? LP/CD (BMG) *Clear or Ltd. Pink Vinyl

How Do You Burn? is the third AFGHAN WHIGS album since their reunion 10 years ago, but to us it comes on like a true spiritual/sonic successor to their early 90s heyday of Congregation & Gentlemen. Like those stone-cold classics, this killer deftly mixes angsty grunge & psychedelic R&B with flair: Blaxploitation movie-score strings, electric piano, twin guitar leads, and GREG DULLI in never-better voice, urged on by the spectre of his late friend & collaborator MARK LANEGAN (who guests here and gave the album its great title). The highlight is the stunning “Domino & Jimmy”, with SCRAWL’s MARCY MAYS returning to the Whigs’ fold 30 years on from “My Curse” and still matching Dulli blow-for-emotional-blow. Raw and soulful and totally unrelenting, this is easily one of the best alt-rock records of 2022. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

SARAH DAVACHI – Two Sisters 2LP (Late Music) *Black or Ltd. Indie Exclusive Green Vinyl

2022 album from SARAH DAVACHI, developing her heady style of chamber music and drone. Two Sisters makes good use of the human voice as a compliment to other instruments, intersecting with organ, violin and cello to create music that takes from both Christian and Muslim devotional music. On Davachi’s imprint Late Music and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

STELLA DONNELLY – Flood LP/CD/CS (Secretly Canadian) *Black or Ltd. Red Vinyl

The talented Australian singer Stella Donnelly is back with her second album. Donnelly wrote a lot of the songs on piano, an instrument that she hadn’t touched since she was a kid. You can sort of tell that the songs have odd structures but it helps to set her sound apart. Her voice has a sweet & innocent quality especially when she dips into these sort of talk-singing breakdowns. Like her other records, Donnelly gets into some serious lyrical territory sometimes but there’s always a cheeky approach to it which really works. The title track is one of the most infectious pop songs we’ve heard this year & the album is solid all the way through. RECOMMENDED!

KALI MALONE – Living Torch LP (Portraits GRM)

The Swedish organist & composer Kali Malone is best known for her epic pipe organ compositions & performances but for this one she used a ARP 2500 & a few other synths along with a trombonist & bass clarinetist. Interestingly the sounds are somewhat similar to the pipe organ & perhaps that’s the idea. Two long form drones to get lost in this fall…RECOMMENDED.

SANTIGOLD – Spirituals LP (Little Jerk) *Ltd. Picture Disc

SANTIGOLD is back with a new album self-released on her new label Little Jerk. Along with MIA, Santi predicted a world where futurist, electronic pop could rule, where similar artists like CHARLI, XCX Solange & Grimes have become massive pop stars. The songs are minimal with sporadic beats & simple but effective vocal melodies. Solid stuff…RECOMMENDED.

SAULT – Air LP/CD (Forever Living Originals) *Finally available on physical formats!

Air is the 6th album by the UK group SAULT in only 3 years. This one finds the mysterious group led by producer INFLO wading into the world of classical choral music, Quincy Jones soundtracks & Philip Glass influenced composition. It weirdly works in the SAULT discography though as a different way to make spiritual music. RECOMMENDED.

CHARLES STEPNEY – Step on Step 2LP/CD (International Anthem) *Black or Ltd. Gold Vinyl

This brilliant collection from Int’l Anthem focuses on Chicago composer/producer CHARLES STEPNEY, unearthing four-track basement demos of largely original – and otherwise unrecorded – material. STEPNEY’s historical mark was as a creative collaborator, drawing up the baroque arrangements for artists like MINNIE RIPERTON, TERRY CALLIER, EW&F and MARLENA SHAW, and while these recordings retain that expansive vision, the prominent feeling here is intimacy, landing somewhere in a zone between SLY STONE circa-Riot, the soundtrack work of CURTIS MAYFIELD and MULATU’s Ethiopiques. But make no mistake; STEPNEY was a visionary of his own. Intercut with interviews from STEPNEY’s family, this is an incisive look at his boundless creativity. One of the best finds of the year, this comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

SUDAN ARCHIVES – Natural Brown Prom Queen 2LP/CD (Stones Throw) *Black or Ltd. Orange Vinyl

LA’s SUDAN ARCHIVES returns for her fourth release on Stones Throw with Natural Brown Prom Queen, fusing sounds of hip-house into her idiosyncratic violin- soul. This is SA’s most confident and pop-forward album to date, exploring the relationships between confidence, sexuality, and introversion. Excellent and RECOMMENDED!

SHANNON WRIGHT – Dyed In The Wool LP (Quarterstick) *2022 Pressing – Clear Vinyl

The excellent 2001 album by Shannon Wright has finally been released on vinyl. Beautiful & often dark indie rock songs similar to PJ Harvey & Elliott Smith with a great backing band featuring members of SHIPPING NEWS (RIP Jason), Edith Frost & more. RECOMMENDED.

YOU’LL NEVER GET TO HEAVEN – Wave Your Moonlight Hat for the Snowfall Train LP (Seance Centre) *Repressed!

YOU’LL NEVER GET TO HEAVEN is a London, Ontario based couple & this is their 4th album. Delicate & somewhat lo-fi art pop with fragile, Julee Cruise esque vocals. There isn’t any percussion really but the music is still quite rhythmic with accented, fretless bass, repetitive bells, vibe & piano sounds & subtle background distortion. This reminds us of some favorite things like Eno, YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS, Gareth Williams & Mary Currie, Japanese furniture music, the Ghost Box label etc…RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records 9/2/22 New Releases

Stereolab – Pulse of the Early Brain: Switched On Vol. 5

RECKLESS RECORDS 9/2/22  NEW RELEASES

CODEINE – Dessau LP (Numero Group) *Black or Ltd. “Barely Green” Vinyl

Way back in 1992, the slowcore legends CODEINE went into the studio to record their 2nd album. For a number of reasons the sessions were abandoned & the drummer Chris Brokaw quit the band. The group would eventually get a new drummer & re-record the songs that were released as their final album, the fantastic The White Birch. These versions made at Harold Dessau Recording have been remastered & released for this first time via Numero Group. They’re pretty similar to the album versions but it’s definitely cool to hear the takes with the original line-up. RECOMMENDED!

MJ LENDERMAN – Boat Songs LP (Dear Life)

WEDNESDAY guitarist MJ LENDERMAN also works as a solo singer-songwriter, crafting humorous and disarming country rock tunes that find a way to strike a balance somewhere halfway between shambolic and polished. A bit of indie fuzz of the DINOSAUR JR. and BUILT TO SPILL persuasion, as well as some country-fried funk in the LITTLE FEAT mold, all wrapped up in LENDERMAN’s touching, JASON MOLINA-esque ear for melody & lyrics. For fans of the above mentioned bands, as well as good songwriting in general, this comes RECOMMENDED.

JOHN ONDOLO – Hypnotic Guitar of John Ondolo LP (Mississippi)

Rare 50s & 60s 78 recordings collected for the first time by the East African guitarist & singer John Ondolo. Using open tunings, Ondolo had a unique playing style & some of the songs with flute & percussion accompaniment have a really interesting sound. RECOMMENDED!

STEREOLAB – Pulse of the Early Brain: Switched On Vol. 5 LP/CD (Warp) *Available as a 2CD set or a 3LP set including a limited number of copies with a mirrorboard sleeve for the same price while supplies last!

The fifth volume of STEREOLAB’s superb Switched On series comes out right ahead of their North American tour, and includes rare & live tracks such as a remix from AUTECHRE, collaborations with NURSE WITH WOUND and music used to accompany sculptures by Charles Long. Absolutely unmissable! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records 8/26/22 New Releases

Kikagaku Moyo – Kumoyo Island

RECKLESS RECORDS 8/26/22  NEW RELEASES

KIKAGAKU MOYO – Kumoyo Island LP (Guruguru Brain) *Available at Wicker Park now – other shops next week!

The 5th album Kumoyo Island by the great Japanese psychedelic band KIKAGAKU MOYO is supposedly their final album. They’ve been on a farewell tour for most of 2022 & that’s great news for anyone that hadn’t been lucky enough to see them before as they’re one of the best live bands of the past decade in our opinion. For their last record, the band returned to the studio where they made their first record & the results are stunning. Driving, rhythmic songs with repetitive vocal patterns that get stuck in your head right away. These guys manage to pay their respects to flowery psych rock of the past without sounding like copycats & this might be their most unique sounding album yet. We’re truly sorry to see this band go but at least we have this last album. RECOMMENDED.

LEVIATHAN – Shadow of No Light 8xCS Box Set (Profound Lore)

Eight early LEVIATHAN demos originally released between 1998-2002 with some touch-up remastering from the original sources. These demos are important documents of the first wave of American black metal & it’s very cool that they’re available again on the cassette format. Supposedly already out of print at the label & RECOMMENDED.

LOCRIAN – New Catastrophism CD (Profound Lore)

New Catastrophism is the first album from the Chicago group LOCRIAN in 7 years. Four lengthy tracks that display the group’s talent for creating brooding dark ambient/post industrial landscapes that occasionally dip into MONO meets MOGWAI post-rock melodies. RECOMMENDED.

SALVIA PLATH – Melanchole LP/CD (Danger Collective) 

This album by the New Zealand artist Daniel Johann aka SALVIA PLATH was originally released on Bandcamp in 2012 then as a limited LP run in 2018. It’s been remastered for this 2022 reissue. Lo-fi & somewhat dark lo-fi bedroom pop that sounds like a lost 90s Siltbreeze or Drag City record. Imagine a mix of early PAVEMENT, Roy Montgomery, MICROPHONES etc… RECOMMENDED.

KAITLYN AURELIA SMITH – Let’s Turn It Into Sound LP/CD (Ghostly) *Black or Ltd. Color Vinyl

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith continues to evolve her sound on Let’s Turn It Into Sound. Quirky synth-pop that probably most reminds us of 80s Japanese greats like YELLOW MAGIC ORCHESTRA, Mariah etc…with some almost drum & bass breakdowns from time to time & even some hints of Japanese video game music. There are some occasional hints of her new age stylings but this one definitely lives in more of an art pop realm. RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records 8/19/22 New Releases

The Mountain Goats – Bleed Out

RECKLESS RECORDS 8/19/22 NEW RELEASES

HOT CHIP – Freakout/ Release 2LP/CD (Domino) *Black or Ltd. Brown Vinyl

UK dance-rockers HOT CHIP return to Domino for their eighth album, looking to find balance between anxiety and ecstasy through their trademark synth-pop sound in the wake of the COVID pandemic and political unrest. Still a classic throwback even with more contemporary undertones.

THE MOUNTAIN GOATS – Bleed Out LP/CD/CS (Merge) *Indie Exclusive Yellow Vinyl w/ posters & postcards while supplies last!

This 20th (twentieth!) album from John Darnielle & co. draws inspiration from Hollywood action and neo-noir films of the 60s, 70s & 80s, weaving stories about bloody shootouts around songs with a bit of a snarling edge to them. The group now includes BULLY’s Alicia Bognanno as a producer and full-time band member, and her production is slick without being obtrusive. While these songs have more ambitious structures, ultimately they retain that classic MOUNTAIN GOATS feeling, now filtered through this hyper-specific prism. On Merge yet again and RECOMMENDED.

RUSSIAN CIRCLES – Gnosis LP/CD (Sargent House) *Black or Ltd. Transparent Orange Vinyl

Chicago instrumental trio RUSSIAN CIRCLES returns for their first release in three years for perhaps their darkest, heaviest record yet. While the band still takes time to explore their compositions in the grand, sweeping post-rock style they are known for, Gnosis emphasizes pummeling, blackened punches of noise that puts them in closer territory to groups like THOU and BLOOD INCANTATION. This is absolutely vicious stuff here from this group. RECOMMENDED.

ELI WINTER – Eli Winter LP (Three Lobed Recordings)

Chicago’s ELI WINTER brings on a massive list of folks as collaborators for this self-titled release, (YASMIN WILLIAMS, RYLEY WALKER, DAVID GRUBBS and JAIMIE BRANCH to name a few), creating a bright, knotty piece of late summer pastoralism that both evokes experimental psych folk a la WALKER or STEVE GUNN and the gentler side of Chicago post-rock like GASTR DEL SOL or even THE SEA & CAKE at their most “analog”. An absolutely fantastic release here that comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Boris – Heavy Rocks (2022)

RECKLESS RECORDS 8/12/22 NEW RELEASES

BORIS – Heavy Rocks (2022) LP (Relapse) *White Vinyl – Ltd. 1000

The 3rd entry in BORIS’ Heavy Rocks series puts a big leopard-print bow on their nearly three decades long (!!!) discography. Front-loaded with heavy thrash and proto-metal jams, it quickly bobs and weaves song-to-song but sometimes even verse-to-verse from many of the genres these iconoclasts have taken a swing at across nearly 50 albums: doom, shoegaze, garage, industrial…with a big tip of the hat to their past collaborators MERZBOW and SUNN O))) in the abstract noise passages that ominously rear their heads throughout. Another essential release from one of our favorite bands. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

DANGER MOUSE & BLACK THOUGHT – Cheat Codes LP/CD (BMG) *Black or Ltd. Red Vinyl

Following in the storied lineage of great MC & Producer team-ups like Madvillainy, Piñata, and Twelve Reasons To Die, Cheat Codes is a fantastic 2022 joint effort from DANGER MOUSE and THE ROOTS’ BLACK THOUGHT. After a few years in the proverbial Late Night TV slash MOR wilderness, both artists up their already elevated game even higher here. The guest list is stacked – RAEKWON, A$AP ROCKY, EL-P, KILLER MIKE, Chicago’s KID SISTER and more, plus an incredible MF DOOM verse from beyond the grave – but the coolest moments involve just hearing Thought go HARD in the pocket of some of Danger Mouse’s best material since Demon Days. This is a tightly focused, wildly entertaining collab between two master craftsmen. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

JUST MUSTARD – Heart Under LP (Partisan) * Now available on vinyl!

Excellent sophomore record from the Irish quintet JUST MUSTARD, relishing in the steely post-punk of their fellow countrymen (and labelmates) FONTAINES D.C. but with a heavy embrace of classic trip-hop and shoegaze a la PORTISHEAD and MORCHEEBA with a little touch of MBV. There’s a lot of compelling stuff coming from the U.K. and Ireland right now in the way of punk and art rock, but this certainly stands out in a very crowded field. On Partisan and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

ORCHESTRE MASSAKO – Orchestre Massako LP (Analog Africa)

Killer 12″ from Analog Africa that focuses on the Gabonese musician and singer MACK-JOSS and his group ORCHESTRE MASSAKO – Started after the Gabonese army recruited MACK-JOSS to be the bandleader for their own national band. Throughout the 1970s, funds from Gabon were used to purchase recording equipment so the group could record singles, which were then pressed over in France and sent back to Gabon. This collects four of those singles (some of which feature the singer AMARA TOURE), a set of elliptical, swirling rhythms and minor key folk melodies that share some kinship to the music of Ghana. Fantastic stuff as always, and it comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Chat Pile – God’s Country

RECKLESS RECORDS 8/5/22  NEW RELEASES

CHAT PILE – God’s Country LP/CD/CS (Flenser) *LPs sold out but we’ll have a limited amount next week

NOT METAL IN THE METAL SECTION ALERT!!! The much anticipated album God’s Country by the Oklahoma City band CHAT PILE is finally here. Aggressive & heavy noise rock ala early Am Rep & Touch & Go bands with some melodic hooks that dig in & won’t let go. Fans of bands like LAUGHING HYENAS, HELMET, TAR, BIG BLACK, GODFLESH, early SWANS etc… will eat this up. RECOMMENDED.

DAMON & NAOMI w/ MICHIO KURIHARA – Sky Record LP (202020) *Companion book available at Wicker Park

The much delayed 2021 album from indie pop legends Damon & Naomi with another legend, Japanese guitarist Michio Kurihara. Mellow, mostly acoustic tunes in Damon & Naomi’s dreamy style with brilliant lead playing by Kurihara. We’re so glad these finally made it!

GLÜME – The Internet LP (Italians Do It Better)

The Internet is a Johnny Jewel produced album by the L.A. based artist & former child star Glüme. It definitely has that Johnny/CHROMATICS sound but maybe with more bubblegum pop and that Italians Do It Better sheen. 

GRATEFUL DEAD – Europe ‘72 3LP (Rhino) *180g, 50th anniversary – Late arrival from last week

50th anniversary reissue of the classic Europe ’72 recorded at various stops on the legendary tour. This is easily one of the finest live records ever released, a must-have for any Dead fan & a perfect intro if you’re looking to get into the band. RECOMMENDED.

KOKOROKO – Could We Be More LP/CD (Brownswood)

Surprising to see that this is the first full-length release from London-based jazz outfit KOKOROKO after they’ve been responsible for a wealth of 12″s and EPs (as well as an appearance on the excellent We Out Here compilation). This continues to deliver, finding the group land between late-70s Ghanian highlife, lite third stream lounge and the lush orchestral soul jazz of their London compatriots. For fans of EBO TAYLOR, PAT THOMAS, KAMASI WASHINGTON, SHABAKA HUTCHINGS and the groovier stuff on ECM, this is RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 7/29/22 New Releases

Maggie Rogers – Surrender

RECKLESS RECORDS 7/29/22  NEW RELEASES

FLORIST – Florist LP/CD (Double Double Whammy) *Purple Vinyl

Emily Sprague and FLORIST return as a band unit for the first time since 2017 for this sprawling self-titled effort. Sprague’s songwriting takes on cyclical patterns, allowing for minimalist, gauzy arrangements to build. This should slot in well with records by ADRIENNE LENKER, LOMELDA and JULIA JACKLIN, perfect for a rainy fall morning or a crisp summer night (in fact there are built-in field recordings of crickets to get you into the right headspace). RECOMMENDED!

FRIENDSHIP – Love the Stranger LP/CD (Merge) *Black or Limited Blue Vinyl

We’ve been pretty excited for this new record from Philly alt-country quartet FRIENDSHIP, and it does not disappoint. Shades of STEVE EARLE, UNCLE TUPELO, some contemporaries like MAPACHE and MJ LENDERMAN, and even a bit of PAVEMENT’s shambolic shuffle can be found on this 2022 album, creating something that is heavy of heart and instantly relatable. Absolutely fantastic stuff that comes RECOMMENDED!

MOOR MOTHER – Jazz Codes LP (Anti–) *Black or Indie Exclusive Color Vinyl

Camae Ayewa aka MOOR MOTHER returns with her 2nd album in 2022. This intentional companion piece to Black Encyclopedia is another interesting look at MOOR MOTHER’s experimental take on contemporary hip-hop. Hints of jazz, footwork & a number of “beatless” songs that listen more like sound collages & R&B art pieces. One of the most interesting artists going right now…RECOMMENDED.

MAGGIE ROGERS – Surrender LP/CD/CS (Capitol) *Black or Ltd. Indie Exclusive “Tangerine Dream” Vinyl w/ free print & signed card while supplies last!

MAGGIE ROGERS follows her megahit 2019 debut (still flying off our shelves 3 years on) with the stunning Surrender. Maggie produced the bulk of this record in her parents’ garage during COVID lockdown, but it doesn’t lack for scope at all. Bolstered by a healthy amount of guitar fuzz, it soars between moments of joyful exuberance & soulful grit to dizzying effect. Any doubt Maggie could write songs as kickass as her voice should vanish now. 90’s alt-pop like LIZ PHAIR, THE CRANBERRIES, and especially THE CARDIGANS are strong reference points here, but this is also highly rec’d for fans of FLORENCE WELCH, HAIM, and HALSEY.

PHUONG TAM – Magical Nights: Saigon Surf, Twist & Soul 1964-1966 LP (Sublime Frequencies)

Sublime Frequencies does it again!! Recently discovered recordings of a Saigon teenager Phuong Tam who was one of the first people in Vietnam to sing rock & roll EVER in the country. Tam only sang for a few years & then abandoned her career with most of her family including her daughter not even being aware of her rock star past. After some impressive detective work, 25 songs have been rediscovered & re-released for the first time. Early 60s R&R with hints of garage/surf & some surprisingly raw, almost Wanda Jackson vocals at times. FANTASTIC!

Reckless Records 7/22/22 New Releases

Beach Bunny – Emotional Creature

RECKLESS RECORDS 7/22/22  NEW RELEASES

BEACH BUNNY – Emotional Creature LP/CD/CS (Mom & Pop) *Ltd. Orange/Yellow Vinyl

This sophomore record from BEACH BUNNY maintains the Chicago quartet’s signature bubblegum power-pop sound, finding a way to keep laying down ear candy hooks and choruses in 2-3 minute increments. However, Emotional Creature shines brightest with Lili Trifilio’s smart, intuitively resonant songwriting, showcasing a breadth of emotion from mature confidence to vulnerability. If anything, this may prove once and for all that BEACH BUNNY is not just a TikTok-boosted flash-in-the-pan but an artistic force with staying power. Certainly RECOMMENDED for fans of CHARLY BLISS, BEABADOOBEE, even PARAMORE.

GREG FOAT – Psychosynthesis LP (Blue Crystal) 

The UK based jazz pianist & composer made this album of synth explorations during the pandemic & we must say it’s a pretty heady trip. Part acid jazz, part 70s kosmische, part 90s chill out, part jazz fusion, this one is a little difficult to categorize but we’ll keep it in jazz based on Foat’s pedigree.

HOT CHOCOLATE – Hot Chocolate LP (Numero Group) *Black or Ltd. “Cocoa” Color Vinyl

This not the well-known British soul group – instead Numero brings us the first ever U.S. reissue of the debut album by the Cleveland group with the same name. Led by Lou Ragland, HOT CHOCOLATE’s sound was a mix of METERS esque funky grooves, soulful ballads & uplifting vocals numbers.

CARLOS NIÑO & FRIENDS – Extra Presence LP (International Anthem)

Expanded edition of CARLOS NINO’s 2020 record Actual Presence, collaborating with the likes of SHABAZZ PALACES, MIGUEL ATWOOD-FERGUSON, LARAAJI, JAMAEL DEAN and others. This collection traverses hip-hop, modern classical, new age and sound design, all tied together by NINO’s intuitive sense of dynamics, rhythm & tone. This is yet another must-get on International Anthem, seemingly encompassing the label’s stable of sounds in a complete package. RECOMMENDED!

TY SEGALL – Hello, Hi LP/CD/CS (Drag City)

TY SEGALL is back with another collection of sun-fried psych ditties. The vibe is mostly late 60’s freak folk a la Sleeper but with some perfectly deployed glammy guitar riffage, full band vamping, and quite a few disarmingly catchy hooks. Whether or not you dug Ty’s mutant synth-pop detour on Harmonizer (and we definitely did), this is a solid return to what this undeniably brilliant songwriter does best and better than most. Recommended for fans of T. REX (duh), DONOVAN, BOWIE circa The Man Who Sold The World, etc…
