Reckless Records 2/23/24 New Releases

Hurray For The Riff Raff – The Past is Alive

RECKLESS RECOMMENDED:

>> ERIKA DE CASIER – Still LP/CD (4AD)

Building off of collaborations with DUA LIPA, SHYGIRL and EARTHEATER as well as the cult success of her 2021 LP Sensational, Still sees ERIKA DE CASIER delve deep into sultry electronica and throwback R&B. Her sonic palatte is rooted in world of dance music, and these tracks end up as skillful forays into trip-hop, drum’n’bass and hip-house. But at the forefront is DE CASIER’s voice, never aggressive but always expressive in wrapping tight, hooky melodies around these beats. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED.

>> HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF – The Past is Still Alive LP/CD (Nonesuch) *Translucent Orange Crush” Vinyl

After some thrilling detours into other genres on the defiantly radical Life on Earth, Alynda Segarra returns to their vintage roots-rock sound for this latest entry under the HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF banner. Alynda sounds laser-focused after a few years in the wilderness, their voice clear as a bell over chiming guitars and crisp drums. This is powerful folk music of the first order, informed by struggle and pulsing with life. Deftly produced by Brad Cook (WAXAHATCHEE, BON IVER) and featuring CONOR OBERST, HAND HABITS’ Meg Duffy, ANJIMILE and SG GOODMAN. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> MGMT – Loss of Life LP/CD (Mom + Pop) *Black or Indie Exclusive “Blue Jay” Vinyl

The mighty psych-pop duo MGMT return for their fifth studio album, and Loss of Life (“lol?”) is a little harder to pin down compared to the icy synths of their previous effort Little Dark Age or the technicolor party rock of their debut Oracular Spectacular. The sonic influence here ranges from vintage chillwave to stuffed-up 70s glam to synth punk with a collage-like pace. Great, energetic stuff from a band that’s been going at it for nearly twenty years. RECOMMENDED!

>> MARY TIMONY – Untame the Tiger LP/CD (Merge) *Black or Peak Vinyl Edition Neon Pink Vinyl

For her first solo album in 15 years (after stints with the supergroup WILD FLAG and fronting the kickass power trio EX HEX), ex-HELIUM singer/songwriter/axe wielder MARY TIMONY looks inward for a set of intricate, tightly wound folk-rock tunes. It trades in her vintage face-melting riffage & wild energy for a different kind of rawness, fresh as an open wound. Fans of RICHARD & LINDA THOMPSON and FAIRPORT CONVENTION (whose drummer Dave Mattacks very coolly guests here) will absolutely adore this record. RECOMMENDED!

>> NEIL YOUNG – Dume 2LP (Reprise) *Indie Exclusive Ltd. Edition w/ art print & lyric poster

Dume was originally released as part of the Archives Vol. II box set in 2020. The title comes from Pointe Dume, a promontory off the coast of Malibu where Neil & CRAZY HORSE wrote & recorded the songs. The sessions would be whittled down to form Zuma, one of Neil & the band’s greatest achievements. Now expanded with outtakes & alternate mixes, Dume is a new look at the Zuma era with 7 songs that have never been on vinyl before. This is as good as these Archives releases get in our opinion. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 2/16/24 New Releases

Chelsea Wolfe –She Reaches Out to She Reaches Out to She

RECKLESS RECOMMENDED:

>> JEREMIAH CHIU – In Electric Time LP (International Anthem)

In Electric Time is out mere weeks after the release of a collaborative album from JEREMIAH CHIU with ARIEL KALMA and MARTA SOFIA HONER, but both the genesis and execution of this record was more impromptu. CHIU made a stop into the Vintage Synthesizer Museum in Highland Park, LA, with an open-ended plan to record, and over the course of two days built, programmed and sequenced the pieces that would become this record. The result is a great display of intuitive songwriting, ranging from RAYMOND SCOTT-like vintage miniatures to grand kosmiche in the mold of HARMONIA. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> CODEINE/ BEDHEAD – Atmosphere b/w Disorder 7″ (Numero Group) *Color or “Ozone Blue” Vinyl

Two of the legit first-wave slow core bands team up for a split 7″ with both bands covering two of your favorite JOY DIVISION songs. Hook it into our veins… RECOMMENDED!

>> LAURA JANE GRACE – Hole in My Head LP/CD/CS (Polyvinyl) *Hot Pink Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

The mighty LJG is back at it with another record in what’s shaping up to be a fruitful solo discography. It continues the trend started on her pandemic-era releases of paring down the trademark AGAINST ME bombast to its bare essentials, resulting in really sharp lo-fi punk & folk (& even rockabilly & country) tracks that are as raw and bracingly immediate as any she’s ever made. Chicago’s gonna miss you, Laura! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> IDLES – Tangk LP/CD (Partisan) *Black, Indie Exclusive Translucent Pink Vinyl, or Deluxe Edition Ltd. Yellow Vinyl w/ holographic sleeve & book

Bristol’s IDLES enlist the help of RADIOHEAD producer Nigel Godrich (as well as KENNY BEATS and James Murphy of LCD SOUNDSYSTEM) for a record that expands out of punk onto the dancefloor while still retaining the group’s signature cockney aggression. On Partisan and RECOMMENDED!

>> CHELSEA WOLFE – She Reaches Out to She Reaches Out to She LP/CD (Loma Vista) *Black or Indie Exclusive Transparent Blue Vinyl

Longtime Reckless fave CHELSEA WOLFE returns with her 1st solo album in almost 5 years (though she’s devoted time to great side projects with CONVERGE and MRS. PISS and scoring the film X). This new joint is produced by DAVE SITEK, who draws out the industrial, electro, and trip-hop influences that have always creeped at the edges of Chelsea’s music. The chilly electronics & buzzing rhythms marry extremely well with Chelsea’s voice, as lush & powerful as ever. Fans of PORTISHEAD, BJÖRK, and TRICKY will find lots to love here & hopefully feel compelled to take a deeper dive into Chelsea’s eclectic catalog as a result. RECOMMENDED!

This is a fantastic psychedelic boogie album with a sinister bent and a wicked sense of humor. We couldn’t be more overjoyed that this album can be heard again. GET IT WHILE YOU CAN! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> DUCKS LTD. – Harm’s Way LP (Carpark) *Ltd. Color Vinyl

DUCKS LTD. – a Toronto-based duo with roots in the Australia, UK, and Midwest music scenes – are back with this follow-up to their assured 2021 debut LP. On Harm’s Way they nail the classic CARS/STROKES trick of making every instrument part a hook – each chiming riff, bassline, drum fill, and rich vocal harmony are pure, sticky ear candy. And like all the best jangle/power pop, repeated listens reveal layers of aching melancholy beneath the sugary surface. PLUS, awesomely, this record was made in Chicago and features members of RATBOYS, DEHD, FINOM and MOONTYPE. Really good stuff – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> BRITTANY HOWARD – What Now LP (Island) *Translucent Yellow Vinyl

BRITTANY HOWARD returns with her second solo LP removed from ALABAMA SHAKES. For What Now, she taps into the same wells of influence that BEYONCÉ did for Renaissance – glitchy funk, warm R&B, and euphoric house – for a set of songs equally as resilient. Throughout she proves her bonafides not just as a powerhouse singer but also as a truly incredible guitarist – one of our best living, no doubt about it. This is just one more brilliant release from an artist who is building up an absolutely towering body of work… HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> HELADO NEGRO – Phasor LP/CD (4AD)

Roberto Carlos Lange follows up his expansive double LP Far In with a tighter collection of songs that draw influence from atmospheric kosmiche ambience (a direct reference to PAULINE OLIVEROS in the album’s opener) and tight, prominent grooves. For fans of SAULT, CATE LE BON & even STEREOLAB. RECOMMENDED!

>> DAVID NANCE & MOWED SOUND – David Nance & Mowed Sound LP (Third Man) *Black or Color Vinyl

Highly prolific journeyman songwriter/guitarist DAVID NANCE has banded together a Crazy Horse of his own in MOWED SOUND for this S/T’d “debut” LP, his first on JACK WHITE’s Third Man Records. Together they conjure up a set full of freewheeling boogie, cosmic Americana & greased-up psych with motorik grooves that throb & pulse hypnotically, evoking ghosts of Afrobeat, raga & CAN as much as classic ZZ TOP or ALLMAN BROS. A thrilling listen that will make you wanna trade in your wings on some wheels, hit the pavement & find some desert to go flying by… RECOMMENDED!

>> STEVE ROACH – Structures From Silence LP (Projekt) *2024 Remaster – Color Vinyl

Much appreciated reissue of this ambient/new age classic by Steve Roach. Originally released in 1984, this album is now regarded as one of the most important releases in the ambient genre & it sounds incredibly modern today as many artists now are exploring similar territory that Roach did over 30 years ago. ENO, VANGELIS & SCHULZE are solid comparisons but Roach was pushing his synth textures into a realm that still sounds fresh. Fans of the previously mentioned ambient giants as well as contemporaries like ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER & Steve Hauschildt will want to check this out. RECOMMENDED!

>> SONIC YOUTH – Walls Have Ears LP/CD (Goofin’) *Black or Ltd. Silver Vinyl

Walls Have Ears was originally released as an artist sanctioned “unofficial” release in 1986 & has been highly sought after ever since. The legendary LP featured material taken from 3 UK shows spliced together with sound collage & experimental sections that set it above your typical bootleg release. The lo-fi recordings really put you in the room with the band & the Bad Moon Rising heavy tracklist mixed with in-process/pre Evol tunes hits about as hard as you’d hope. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 2/2/24 New Releases

meth. – Shame

RECKLESS RECOMMENDED:

>> DEL THE FUNKY HOMOSAPIEN – No Need for Alarm 2LP (Get On Down) *30th Anniversary – #’d & Ltd. Color Vinyl

Sophomore release from DEL THE FUNKY HOMOSAPIEN, & 30 years later it’s become a classic. Del’s first LP was put together with some help from his cousin, ICE CUBE & it should be no surprise to listeners that this second record, produced primarily by Hiero crew members Domino, A-Plus, Casual & Del himself, is a bit Jazzier & less G-Funky. Del’s got a great ear, a great pen, & an incredible voice, & if you don’t have a copy of this recOrd, you should grab this anniversary release before it’s too late. Promise you it’s worth it. RECOMMENDED!

>> ARIEL KALMA, JEREMIAH CHIU & MARTA SOFIA HONER – The Closest Thing to Silence LP/CD (International Anthem)

This collaboration between French-Australian new age luminary ARIEL KALMA and Int’l Anthem experimentalists JEREMIAH CHIU and MARTA SOFIA HONER was born at first from a meeting on BBC Radio’s “Late Junction” series, where the trio would exchange and work on fragments of each other’s original music. The initial twenty minute broadcast inspired them to expand their collaboration into a full length album, weaving together classical minimalism, fourth world rhythmic jazz, drone & sound design into a captivating collage. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> THE LAST DINNER PARTY – Prelude to Ecstasy LP (Island) *”Midnight” Black Vinyl w/ poster

UK five-piece THE LAST DINNER PARTY have built up an impressive amount of hype in their short time as a band, cracking the charts overseas and opening for the STONES all without a full-length to their name. Now Prelude to Ecstasy is finally here and, frankly, it rules. Bombastic & theatrical alt-pop in the vein of SPARKS or KATE BUSH with hooks for days, a really inventive rhythm section, and some serious guitar heroics that also line this up neatly with ST VINCENT or T.REX. Produced by JAMES FORD (JESSIE WARE, ARCTIC MONKEYS) and HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> METH. – Shame LP/CD (Prostethic) *White Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

Chicago “experimental heavy band” METH. are back with another heater, their second on Prosthetic Records. Shame’s seven tracks assault the senses relentlessly with pummeling tempos & harsh sonics that, in concert with the vox & lyrics, offer a stark, harrowing glimpse into cycles of addiction, trauma & depression. They channel many of the same influences as peers like CHAT PILE and PRIMITIVE MAN – i.e. if you’re a fan of GODFLESH, THE JESUS LIZARD, SWANS BIG BLACK/SHELLAC etc, you’ll find lots to love here and you’ll relish the challenging listen. Another Chi-town drop we can be proud of… RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 1/26/24 New Releases

The Smile – Wall of Eyes

RECKLESS RECOMMENDED:

>> BENNY THE BUTCHER – Everybody Can’t Go LP/CD (Def Jam)

Griselda’s knife-man is always ready to kill a beat. BENNY THE BUTCHER has an uncomplicated flow & style that’s never out of place. That’s not to say he’s not a great lyricist, that’s to say that sometimes the gymnastics aren’t the draw. See, what Benny does is put together rhymes, flows, & beats for a complete experience, you can vibe to it, but the drums knock hard enough to get people on the dance floor. You can put it on at the party, but your writer-ly friends can rock with the penmanship. It’s a one-stop shop for any fan of good Hip-Hop music. RECOMMENDED!

>> FUTURE ISLANDS – People Who Aren’t There Anymore LP (4AD) *Black or Indie Exclusive Clear Vinyl

7th full length album for Baltimore indie mainstays FUTURE ISLANDS, rooting themselves again in their trademark synth-pop sound influenced instrumentally by NEW ORDER and THE HUMAN LEAGUE with Sam Herring’s recognizable bellow floating above. On 4AD and RECOMMENDED!

>> ZANDER RAYMOND – To Have Several Lives LP (Sound As Language) *Remastered – Ltd. Green Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

Beautiful ambient record from Chicago’s ZANDER RAYMOND that was originally released in 2022. To Have Several Lives centers on improvisation, making use of modular synths and samples to construct a non-linear sound design. The result is a beautiful, often surprising set of vignettes, sketching outer worlds and inviting Inner calm. Now newly remastered for vinyl, this comes HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> TY SEGALL – Three Bells 2LP/CD/CS (Drag City)

Three Bells might be the most sprawling record TY SEGALL has ever made, and if you’re familiar with Ty’s work then you know that’s no small feat. Many of these tracks aren’t “songs” so much as they are densely layered suites: they start at one point before morphing over several minutes into an entirely different beast, and then they build to a mighty crescendo before moving on to the next cycle. If you imagine the Abbey Road medley made album length then you’re not far off, but you’d also have to factor in Ty’s recent knack for channeling as many genres as possible – garage & psych of course, but also new wave, freak folk, knotty funk, art punk, and the most abrasive bursts of interstitial noise this side of NIN’s Downward Spiral. The sprawl is tied together by a massive sense of groove and an almost jazzy swing to the drums (played by Ty himself), lending the set a swagger that few of Ty’s contemporaries can rival. It’s always a thrill when a songwriter as brilliant as Ty challenges himself & his own conventions, and even more so when they stick the landing. Produced with COOPER CRAIN (✶ ✶ ✶ ✶), on DRAG CITY and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> THE SMILE – Wall of Eyes LP (XL) *Black or Indie Exclusive Blue Vinyl w/ limited listening party swag available with purchase while supplies last

This sophomore full length from JONNY GREENWOOD, THOM YORKE and TOM SKINNER drapes their unconventional rhythms in a gauzy, dream-pop atmosphere, at times channeling orchestral, spiritual jazz with textured string & brass arrangements and swirling cosmic synth. Unlike many of the later RADIOHEAD efforts that appear as immaculate studio soundcraft, Wall of Eyes seems instead to embrace disharmony. The ideas are frenetic and loose, and neither YORKE nor GREENWOOD have been as energetic as songwriters in years as they are here. RECOMMENDED!

>> SPRINTS – Letter to Self LP (City Slang) *Ltd. Red Vinyl

Young Irish band SPRINTS drop their debut full-length on City Slang, building off the buzz of a pair of great EPs & a reputation for a ferocious live show. They level up from their road-tested garage-punk sound with a heavy grunge feel that places this in the same continuum as classic HOLE & PJ HARVEY, even as the tempos amp up a la prime MOTÖRHEAD. Band leader Karla Chubb’s world-beating voice & lyrics are the icing on the cake, tying the songs together to make a piece of defiantly cathartic art. Instantly one of the best rock albums of 2024. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> VARIOUS – Sonic Transmutations 8LP Box (Clone)

Sonic Transmutations is an extended compilation album celebrating over three decades of Clone Records. Marking the 31 years – which is coincidentally the national Dutch telephone code – the 8×12 inch box set draws together veteran talent and emerging iconoclasts, transmitting a frequency rooted the imprint’s signature blend of essential dance music while journeying off into territories unknown. In a constant state of unfolding, morphing across phases of matter, Sonic Transmutations purveys an elemental energy that stands in testament to Clone’s enduring legacy and explorations of sounds and structures. RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records 1/19/24 New Releases

Danny Brown – Quaranta

RECKLESS RECOMMENDED:

>> DANNY BROWN – Quaranta LP/CD (Warp) *Black or Ltd. Red Vinyl – One of Reckless’ Best of 2023 staff picks now in stock!

After a relatively quiet couple of years, DANNY BROWN got busy in 2023, as Quaranta followed his avant-goofball collaboration with JPEGMAFIA on Scaring the Hoes. Quaranta was written during that interim, and showcases BROWN’s more introspective, reflective side. Lots of jazzy, proggy leftfield production on this – partially helped by THE ALCHEMIST – with features by KASSA OVERALL, MIKE and BRUISER WOLF. EXCELLENT and RECOMMENDED!

>> 90 DAY MEN – We Blame Chicago 5LP Box (Numero Group) *Black or Ltd. “Super Illuminary” Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

The late 90s/early 00s was a brilliant time in Chicago music history & one of the finest bands from that era was 90 DAY MEN. They got their start in the St. Louis punk & emo scene then relocated to Chicago. Their sound was a mix of Touch & Go style post-punk & WIRE/BAUHAUS influenced art rock with a solid but fluid rhythm section & towards the end the addition of the Fender Rhodes which gave them a really unique sound. Guitarist/vocalist Brian Case went on form DISAPPEARS and FACS as well as releasing multiple solo records; Bassist Rob Lowe formed LICHENS & worked with Johann Johannsson on the Arrival soundtrack & scored the Candyman remake; and drummer Cayce Key played in BLOODIEST. Their 3 albums are included in this box along with some outtakes & Peel Sessions & another Chicago legend in his own right Tim Kinsella wrote the liner notes. RECOMMENDED!

>> LOU REED – Hudson River Wind Meditations 2LP (Light In The Attic) *Remastered – Black or Coke Bottle Color Vinyl

Originally released in 2007 on a small indie label, LOU REED’s final solo album is available again thanks to Light in the Attic. This music wasn’t originally intended for public release – instead Reed composed these pieces as background music for his meditation, yoga & tai chi practice. The opening piece is nearly 30 minutes of deep, circulating synthesizer tones that sound like a machine breathing, maybe a deep space traveler in cryosleep. Some of the other pieces are darker, almost sine wave & tone experiments that would fit in well on a COIL album. We’re really glad to be able to stock this in our racks. RECOMMENDED!

>> WINDY & CARL – Unreleased Home Recordings 1992-1995 3CD Box (Windy & Carl) *#’d Ltd. Edition w/ signed insert

Originally released in 2020, this collection of home recordings from 1992-1995 is available again in a nifty box with a signed insert! Beautiful dream pop & drone from one of our all-time favorite duos. RECOMMENDED!

>> HIROSHI YOSHIMURA – Surround LP (Temporal Drift) *Remastered – Black or LITA Exclusive Blue Vinyl

This is the first ever reissue of the wonderful 1986 album Surround by HIROSHI YOSHIMURA. The master of Japanese environmental music was selected by an architect to compose music to compliment his company’s new living spaces. Similar to Yoshimura’s other environmental classics inspired by ENO’s ambient works, the music is a meant as a companion to the space where it’s being played or heard. Percussive & melodic vibraphone-esque sounds & mellow digital synth drones with Yoshimura’s expert use of reverb & space. Fans of his other great work, Eno, STEVE ROACH & MIDORI TAKADA should pick this up for sure. RECOMMENDED!

<< JON MASSEY >>
(Wicker Park & Belmont)

i think i missed a lot of good music this year but i did find time to listen to some Albums.
asterisk means we carry/carried it here at the shop

→ Here are the ones i listened to “A Lot”:
*Various – Spirit Cry Flutes and Bamboo Jews Harps from Papua New Guinea (Ideologic Organ) – spent alot of 2023 with bad tinnitus and this was the only music i found soothing at all. Half of the tracks is just dudes going “boing boing boing” on a mouth harp and then the other half is chirruping bamboo flutes. It’s seriously something else. Anyone interested in hearing something they’ve never heard before must cop
*The Tubs – Dead Meat (Trouble…) – “ex Joanna Gruesome” always makes the year end list
*Laurel Halo – Atlas (Awe) – i think i would call this “Ambient Plus”
*Ratboys – The Window (Topshelf) – “The Gang Makes An Album With Chris Walla”
*Various – Canto A Lo Divino (Mississippi) – gorgeous billion string guitar music. Probably all about Jesus but guess what so are Sufjan Stevens albums
*Asher White – New Excellent Woman (Ba Da Bing) – kind of elephant six-y textures married to really rich harmonies and lyrics
*Yo La Tengo – This Stupid World – Gods favorite band
Curling – No Guitar – this band is sick as hell
*Hydroplane – Selected Songs 1997-2003 (World Of Echo) – great retrospective from ex-Cat’s Miaow members thats somewhere between clasico indie pop and trip-hop.Thank you World of Echo, very cool!
*Erik Hall – Canto Ostinato (Western Vinyl) – this piece by Simeon Ten Holt has been recorded 1,0000 times but this version really takes it all the way into “library-based period drama soundtrack” territory
Frog – GROG – Frog’s back

→ Special award for great albums by local bands
You Are The Garden – Six Leaf Clover
Prathloons – Live Loons: The Bronze 8.4.23
*Ok Cool – Fawn – ive never felt older than when i saw this band live and they covered “A-Punk”
Model Living – Alignment
Doom Flower – Limestone Ritual (Record Label)
Half Gringa – Ancestral Home
*Tom Musick – The Many Moods of… – see you at Weegees

→ Here are albums i liked in theory and listened to a couple times and now theyre on this list:
// “normal person” category
*Subsonic Eye – All Around You (Topshelf, natürlich) – what’s going on in Singapore??
*@ – Mind Palace Music (Carpark) – new innovations in ungoogleability
*En Attendant Ana – Principia (Trouble in Mind)
*Black Country New Road – Live at Bush Hall (Ninja Tune) – i will NOT put the comma in this band name. do not ever ask me to do that
*L’Rain – I Killed Your Dog (Mexican Summer)
*Julie Byrne – The Greater Wings (Ghostly)

 // “record store employee” category
*Masahiro Takahashi – Humid Sun (Telephone Explosion)
*Martinou – Chiral (Nousklaer) – fell off the dance music train in 2023. I will do better next year
*American Analog Set – For Forever (Darla) – strips away the gauzy production & showcases the evil side of what many people are calling “Death Cab for people still renting in their 30s”
*Mike Cooper – Life & Death in Paradise (Reissue)
*Drop Nineteens – Hard Light (Wharf Cat)
*Beau Wanzer + Champagne Mirrors – Gub (Sophomore Lounge)

In 2023 I found these things worth discussing or recommending to other peoples:
Don’t miss the opening/ support acts. I finally got to see the Smoking Popes featuring one former co-worker (Hi Eli!), & a few bands I hadn’t really heard before, including Teenage Halloween (from New Jersey), who absolutely killed during their set, so much so, I went & bought a shirt. If you like power-pop like Pup, but with a little more Punk influence, you’ll love Teen Ween’s 2023 record Til You Return.
The best beat boxer I’ve ever seen live plays bass for Phum Viphurit. This is probably hyperbole, I’ve seen both Doug E. Fresh & Rahzel, but during Phum’s set at the House of Blues this unassuming but awesome bassist took center stage while Phum & the rest of the band took a break. Pom Tanapon picked up a mic & for 4 or 5 minutes the whole crowd sat transfixed as we saw the worldwide appeal of hip-hop music. It was such a cool little scene, a massive departure from the band’s normal psychedelic, summery, soul-adjacent guitar music, which you can hear on the record Viphurit dropped earlier this year on The Greng Jai Piece.
50 years in Hip Hop keeps growing & expanding. Some of the best rapping I heard all year came fromwomen. Big Boss Vette on Resilience, KenTheMan on Back to 304’n, Chika on Samson, & Flyana Boss on Hello Christ…; all of these sets have incredible performances on the mic. We also got some great “grown man raps” from acts that I really love to hear from: Black Milk dropped Everybody Good, Black Thought teamed up with El Michels Affair for Glorious Game, Oddisee gave us To What End, & Open Mike Eagle’s another triumph… all took approaches that we don’t always get to see in hip hop. We also got some excellent documentation, May the Lord Watch from Rap Portraits & What Had Happened Was season 4 from Stony Island Audio.
This was a pretty good year for R&B & Soul music. I went looking for good R&B this year, & boy howdy did I find it. Victoria Monet with Jaguar II, Jordan Ward with Forward, & Leon Thomas with Electric Dusk. And those are just the 3 I liked best. Each has a different vibe, each has a different approach, but they make you want to move, to feel & sing along.
We were due for a ska revival & I think it’s here! I for one welcome this development. It’s a good time for Bad Times Records who put a tour on with Kill Lincoln, We Are the Union, Catbite, & J. Navarro & the Traitors this year & also released Flying Racoon Suit Moonflower. We also got an ep from Fishbone, & a ripper of a record from ska-adjacent Jeff Rosenstock with Hellmode. There’s a lot of DIY pop music happening out there right now & I’m glad people are still making fun music for fun’s sake.
I’m sure I missed something, but that’s what I remember from this year… Cheers!
