Reckless Records 5/10 & 5/17 New Releases

Reckless Records 5/10/24 & 5/17/24 New Releases

It’s been a surreal 10 days or so in Chicago since Steve left us. Much love to Heather, Bob, Todd, the Electrical Crew, his friends, family & fans. We’ll miss you Steve.

Nobody should be surprised that the Shellac LP is sold out. We’re hoping to have a small restock next week so please place special orders. The 2nd press is already in process

AMEN DUNES – Death Jokes LP (Sub Pop) first pressing Loser Edition

“Death Jokes” is the first AMEN DUNES album in 6 years & his first for Sub Pop. During that time took a step back & reconsidered his approach to songwriting & started piano lessons & learning how to program drums. The result is a quirky mix of his artfully crafted indie rock with some electronic beats, some that almost have a herky jerky quality at times. It’s not as much of a stretch as you might think & fans should be happy AMEN DUNES has returned.

THE CAT’S MIAOW – Skipping Stones: The Cassette Years ‘92-’93 LP (World of Echo)

Demos & lo-fi recordings from the great Melbourne band THE CAT’S MIAOW, embracing the minimal pop simplicity of YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS and BEAT HAPPENING with the reverb’d spaciousness some members would later lean into under the HYDROPLANE moniker. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

MYRIAM GENDRON – Mayday LP/CD (Feeding Tube) green or black vinyl

One of our favorite current artists Myriam Gendron returns with her third album “Mayday.” Her previous albums have mostly contained folk standards with lyrics taken from Dorothy Parker poems. This is the first album of mostly Gendron originals. Her playing is efficient but formidable. Seeing her play live is mind blowing because she’s so consistent & doesn’t seem to make any mistakes. Gendron is joined by Marissa Anderson & Jim White (DIRTY THREE) on 3 tunes & hearing her play with others expands her sound remarkably. Fans of Karen Dalton, Sibyelle Baier, Gillian Welch, Leonard Cohen need to hear this. RECOMMENDED.

BETH GIBBONS – Lives Outgrown LP/deluxe LP/CD (Domino)

**deluxe is almost sold out but we hope to have more next week

First ever strictly solo record from BETH GIBBONS has been a long time coming (eleven years after she had announced it), but the former voice for PORTISHEAD does not disappoint. Spacious, atmospheric production with intimate, close textures that evoke the robust art-pop of JULIA HOLTER and later SCOTT WALKER, as well as PORTISHEAD’s classic iciness, all anchored by GIBBONS’ unmistakable voice. On Domino, well worth the wait, and VERY RECOMMENDED. Deluxe gatefold edition features a book and a limited art print! When it’s gone it’s gone!

PALLBEARER – Mind Burns Alive LP/CD (Nuclear Blast)

PALLBEARER continues to get cleaner & more polished & we’re totally ok with it. “Mind Burns Alive” pushes them further into 70s rock/prog territory with serious nods at PINK FLOYD, songs that sound like RUSH at half speed, TOOL & even ALICE IN CHAINS at times. A solid listen.

SHELLAC – To All Trains LP/CD (Touch & Go)

It’s a surreal time. Just a few weeks ago we were excited about getting the first SHELLAC album in 10 years. Now we all know it’s their last one. Back in 2019 the band was kind enough to play at Reckless in honor of our 30th anniversary. Most of their set was made up of instrumentals that we can all hear now on “To All Trains.” Steve, Bob & Todd really made it worth the wait. Inventive arrangements, instantly memorable riffs, mind boggling drum ideas, that dry SHELLAC wit & of course an amazing recording. A Fitting end to one of the best bands of the last 30 years. REQUIESCAT.

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Ghana Special, Volume 2: Electronic Highlife & Afro Sounds In The Diaspora, 1980​-​93 LP/CD (Soundway)

Soundway’s second volume of pop music from Ghana & the Ghanaian diaspora takes focus on the 1980s, with synths taking hold and bringing in influences of disco, new wave, boogie and electronic R&B. These sounds married with highlife created a new style built for nightclubs and dance halls. Featuring PAT THOMAS, CHARLES AMOAH and ERNEST HONNY among others, this should fit right next to the “Doin’ it in Lagos” and “Gumba Fire” comps on Soundway. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 5/3/24 New Releases

Reckless Records 5/3/24 New Releases

BROADCAST – Spell Blanket: Collected Demos 2006-2009 LP/CD (Warp)

Big 36 track collection of demos and sketches from Trish Keenan & BROADCAST’s productive post-“Tender Buttons” period of 2006-09. This should scratch the same itch that their “Microtronics’ series does, as well as the third demo LP of STEREOLAB’s reissue campaign of the last few years. VERY RECOMMENDED!

CAMERA OBSCURA – Look to the East, Look to the West LP/CD (Merge) black or ltd. blue & white vinyl

First album in over ten years for Glaswegian twee pop torchbearers CAMERA OBSCURA sounds as if they never left. Stylistic changes that go through Americana, minimal synth pop and retro jangle pop are all held together by some excellent earworm melodies. A warm, welcome return for these indie stalwarts. RECOMMENDED!

MDOU MOCTAR – Funeral For Justice LP/CD (Matador)

After the acoustic-inflected “Afrique Victime”, Tuareg guitar wiz MDOU MOCTAR returns to the fast, shredding, psychedelic wildness that’s his band’s bread & butter. Wicked, searing feedback and shuffling rhythms make the background for MOCTAR’s increasingly strident political lyrics and themes, resulting in a pointedly Nigerien record that seems to be channeled through the sound of late period ZEPPELIN (think something soaring like “Achilles’ Last Stand”). RECOMMENDED!

JESSICA PRATT – Here in the Pitch LP/CD (Mexican Summer) black or ltd. brown vinyl

A brilliant fourth record from California psych folk singer JESSICA PRATT, who burrows deeper into the dreamlike mystery of her songwriting. “Here in the Pitch” is dotted with spacious, reverberating vocals, elliptical acoustic guitars and opaque lyrics – all PRATT signatures – but with some arrangements that flesh out the compositions without making them sound too robust. A bit of NICK DRAKE’s “Bryter Layter”, a bit of BROADCAST’s Trish Keenan-esque vocalizations, a bit of dusty 78rpm hauntology, all wrapped up in inviting songcraft. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Scaling Triangles LP (Zaius Tapes)

Zaius Tapes has reissued this compilation of early 80s outsider girl groups from the UK. Minimal post-punk & electronics that will appeal to fans of bands like YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS & Chicago’s ALGEBRA SUICIDE, the early Rough Trade singles, labels like COLOR TAPES etc… will dig this.

KAMASI WASHINGTON – Fearless Movement LP/CD (Young) black or ltd. red & blue vinyl

2024 record from spiritual jazz bandleader KAMASI WASHINGTON is short by his standards (a “brisk” 90 minutes), and traverses styles from hip-hop, gospel, Latin jazz, funk and contemporary classical. Features contributions from the acclaimed flautist ANDRE 3000, as well as GEORGE CLINTON, THUNDERCAT, BJ the CHICAGO KID and TERRACE MARTIN among others. Gorgeous, life affirming maximalist jazz. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 4/26/24 New Releases

Reckless Records 4/12/24 New Releases

We’re still recovering from Record Store Day. It was the biggest one yet & the stores were so freaking busy. Thank you so much to you, our amazing customers. There are still some great titles left from RSD & we’re restocking the racks. We just got a big, much needed Drag City restock & more stuff is trickling in every day. 

Here are a few titles that got lost in the RSD insanity that we wanted to point out:

CLOUD NOTHINGSFinal Summer LP (Pure Noise) limited color or black vinyl

FACS – North American Endless/ Take Me To Your Heart 7” (Sub Pop):

HIGH ON FIRE – Cometh The Storm LP (MNRK)

JPEGMAFIA/ DANNY BROWN – Scaring the Hoes: DLC Edition LP (Jpegmafia)

BNNY – One Million Love Songs LP/CD (Firetalk) limited red or black vinyl:
This second record from Chicago’s own Jess Viscius and BNNY is a turn around from the stark heartbreak of the band’s debut with songs about love, lust and romance built on rich, gauzy arrangements that recall ALVVAYS, SNAIL MAIL and (for an older vintage) MAZZY STAR.

DARKTHRONE – It Beckons Us All LP/CD (Peaceville) purple or black vinyl:
The always reliable Darkthrone returns in 2024 with “It Beckons Us All.” The last few years Fenriz & Nocturno Culto have been cruising along releasing a great record every 2 years or so & they’re always stuffed with memorable riffs. We’re always down with new DARKTHRONE!

Reckless Records 4/5/24 New Releases

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.

Reckless Records 3/22/24 & 3/29/24 New Releases

Reckless Records 3/22 & 3/29 New Releases

We were short-staffed last week so we’re combining last week’s list with this one. There’s tons of good stuff at all locations right now

 ANDRE 3000 – New Blue Sun LP/CD (Epic)

It’s finally here folks, the record that’s brought about as much attention to the flute recently as Lizzo, Andre 3000’s meditative “New Blue Sun.” Produced alongside the great Carlos Nino, Andre has created something truly special here that we hope will prove any possible skeptics wrong. At nearly 90 minutes, this is a deep & heady listen. A record that sits somewhere between 60s/70s spiritual jazz by greats like Pharoah Sanders & Roland Kirk, 80s new age lala the legendary Laraaji & even Japanese video game music. Andre is no flute shredder, his playing is pretty straight-ahead & almost rudimentary but the spirit behind this feels as pure as can be.RECOMMENDED.

BIG BOYS – Lullabies Help the Brain Grow LP (Touch & Go) color vinyl, ltd. to 1000

BIG BOYS – No Matter How Long the Line At the Cafeteria, There’s Always a Seat! LP (Touch & Go) color vinyl, ltd. to 1000

BIG BOYS – Where’s My Towel/ Industry Standard LP (Touch & Go) color vinyl, ltd. to 1000

2024 color vinyl reissues of the albums by the legendary Austin genre-bending punks BIG BOYS. Similar to bands like THE MINUTEMEN, BAD BRAINS & some GOVERNMENT ISSUE, BIG BOYS weren’t afraid to stray from punk, sometimes playing with funk & rhythmic post-punk in ways that most bands weren’t brave enough to attempt at the time. We’re so glad to be able to carry these amazing records once again. Limited to 1000 copies via Touch & Go. RECOMMENDED.

CHASTITY BELT – Live Laugh Love LP (Suicide Squeeze)

The talented Seattle quartet CHASTITY BELT returns with a new one in 2024. No surprise here that the songs are great, straight-ahead guitar tunes with mellow hooks. Think 80s stuff like THROWING MUSES, SCRAWL, FELT, THE FEELIES & more recent stuff like Chicago’s own LALA LALA. RECOMMENDED.

CIVEROUS – Maze Envy LP/CD (20 Buck Spin) color or black vinyl

The Los Angeles death metal unit CIVEROUS returns in 2024 with “Maze Envy.” The album begins with a screeching Bernard Herrmann esque string passage & quickly devolves into cavernous, doom-laden death metal. There are technical elements that will appeal to fans of BLOOD INCANTATION & some clean guitar passages that remind us of DREAM UNENDING. Overall pretty cool stuff here.

ALICE COLTRANE – The Carnegie Hall Concert LP/CD (Impulse)

Wow! This multitrack recording of a 1971 concert at Carnegie Hall was originally planned as an Impulse release but never came out for reasons unknown. This fantastic sounding recording features an absolutely bonkers group of superstars including Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp, Jimmy Garrison, Cecil McBee, Ed Blackwell, Tulsi & Kumar Kramer. A true holy grail for Alice Coltrane fans. RECOMMENDED OF COURSE!

ADRIANNE LENKER – Bright Future LP/CD (4AD) indie only recycled vinyl or regular

Following BIG THIEF’s sprawling double-LP opus “Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You”, singer ADRIANNE LENKER simplifies with this solo full-length. Just in the same way as her “Songs” & “Instrumentals” release in 2020, LENKER recorded these songs directly to tape,mostly with guitar, piano and violin, giving “Bright Future” the feeling of an impromptu home session done by musicians who have lived long enough in these songs to play them loosely. LENKER’s writing evokes both sunlit Americana and airy, dreamlike psych-folk, all rooted in her skills for intuitive melody and poignant couplet lyricism. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

MAJESTY CRUSH – Butterflies Don’t Go Away LP (Numero) limited color or black

Numero turns their attention to the 90s Detroit shoegaze/dream pop band MAJESTY CRUSH. The band was popular in their hometown but for some reason they never really took off in other places. If you’re a fan of 90s stuff like early RIDE, SWERVEDRIVER & CATHERINE WHEEL you should check this stuff out. RECOMMENDED.

SOYUZ – II LP (Mr. Bongo) gold or black vinyl

Mr. Bongo reissue of this fantastic 2019 album by SOYUZ. Based in Minsk, SOYUZ write mellow psychedelic rock tunes with nods at music from around the world including 60’s Brazilian music, Turkish & Peruvian psych rock & nods at contemporary artists like DUNGEN & KHRUANGBIN. If you’re into any of that stuff you should really check this out. RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records 3/15/24 New Releases

Reckless Records 3/15/24 New Releases

COIL – Moon’s Milk (In Four Phases) 3LP box set (Dais) limited color or black vinyl

First ever vinyl reissue for this set of four EPs that were originally released as a 2CD in 2002. Each of the singles is in sequence in tribute to the equinoxes & solstices. If you’re familiar with COIL’s discography then you know variety they’re capable of so aspects of the legendary group are on display here. Deep & heavy drones, electronic experimentation, spoken word, electro-acoustic noise, devotional singing & much more. Also included on the set is a rare “Moon’s Milk” bonus disc that was originally only issued on CD-R. SUPER HEAVY!

CRUSHED – Extra Life LP (Ghostly)

CRUSHED is a duo from L.A. & this EP is their debut release. A nice mix of 90s Brit Pop & Trip Hop with some dream pop elements. 

THE MESSTHETICS & JAMES BRANDON LEWIS – The Messthetics & James Brandon Lewis LP (Impulse)

Not sure we could ever have imagined half of FUGAZI playing on a record on Impulse but here we are! THE MESSTHETICS have always leaned towards jazz with guitarist Anthony Pirog’s furious playing but with the addition of tenor sax player James Brandon Lewis the term “jazz” has officially entered the conversation. Interestingly though, this does rock, almost more so than some of the earlier MESSTHETICS stuff & you can definitely hear hints of FUGAZI at times. If you’re familiar with the later Sonny Sharrock records you might have an idea what this sounds like. RECOMMENDED.

TATSURO YAMASHITA – Circus Town LP (Sony Japan)

TATSURO YAMASHITA – Greatest Hits LP (Sony Japan)

TATSURO YAMASHITA – It’s Poppin’ Time LP (Sony Japan)

Attention City Pop fans!! It’s been a long time coming for these reissues by the City Pop King & one of the most popular all-time Japanese singers Tatsuro Yamashita. 180grm reissues with beautiful artwork.

Reckless Records 3/8/24 New Releases

Kim Gordon – The Collective

RECKLESS RECOMMENDED:

>> KIM GORDON – The Collective LP/CD (Matador) *Double-sided poster available w/ purchase while supplies last

The Collective is another excellent addition to KIM GORDON’s post- SONIC YOUTH catalog, signaling a bold new reinvention of her sound in the 4th decade of her career. It’s a Blistering set of molten soundscapes crafted from SoundCloud trap beats, blown-out bass, immersive waves of distortion, and Kim’s iconic NYC drawl – imagine a classic Youth jam like “Kool Thing” if it were dipped in lava, fossilized and then Electrified by lightning. There are nods to her heroes in SUICIDE & THROBBING GRISTLE, old peers ROYAL TRUX & MBV, artists like M.I.A. & SLEIGH BELLS who were inspired by SY, and some genuinely left-field influences like DEATH GRIPS, CHARLI XCX & even PLAYBOI CARTI, if you can Believe it. This is Yet again a truly Essential release from one of the coolest to ever do it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> TOMATO FLOWER – No LP (Ramp Local) *Indie Exclusive Multi-Color Vinyl

Baltimore’s TOMATO FLOWER releases their full length debut, a textured, deftly played mix of psych-pop, folk and emo. Little touches of ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, some PALM mathyness, and heart-on-your-sleeve CLOUD NOTHINGS guitar rock. RECOMMENDED!

>> TORREY – Torrey LP (Slumberland) *White Vinyl

Second album (and first on Slumberland) for Bay Area dream pop/ shoegaze outfit TORREY, putting together guitar-driven, melody-forward pop compositions that strike a balance between 90s alt-rock (think LUSH, DROP NINETEENS) and brighter, more contemporary indie (ALVVAYS, a little JAPANESE BREAKFAST). RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 3/1/24 New Releases

Ruth Goller – SKYLLUMNIA

RECKLESS RECOMMENDED:

>> DROP NINETEENS – Delaware LP (Music On Vinyl) *180g, Reissue

The early 90s Boston band DROP NINETEENS isn’t one of the bands we would have expected to reform & have success during the recent shoegaze revival but we’re not disappointed about it. Similar to another Boston band at the time, THE SWIRLIES, DROP NINETEENS took the Brit-Pop/shoegaze sound of bands like SLOWDIVE, MY BLOODY VALENTINE & CATHERINE WHEEL and added their own twist to it. Their debut album has been impossible to find for years & we’re really excited to be able to carry it once again. RECOMMENDED!

>> RUTH GOLLER – SKYLLUMINA LP/CD (International Anthem)

London based composer & bassist RUTH GOLLER has worked a lot with Int’l Anthem mainstays ALABASTER DePLUME and BEX BURCH, and her solo work embraces the open improvization of her comrades with ethereal pop vocals that remind us a bit of ANA ROXANNE. Features support from BURCH and THE SMILE’s Tom Skinner. RECOMMENDED!

>> JAHARI MASSAMBA UNIT – YHWH is LOVE LP (Law Of Rhythm) *KARRIEM RIGGINS and MADLIB

The duo of MADLIB and KARRIEM RIGGINS return as JAHARI MASSAMBA UNIT for a record that blends spiritual jazz, rare groove and instrumental hip-hop. While the other instruments are handled by MADLIB, it’s RIGGINS on the drums that stays front and center, at once nimble and powerful, all recorded to perfection. Fans of MADLIB’s jazz project YESTERDAYS NEW QUINTET as well as Int’l Anthem artists like MAKAYA McCRAVEN and JUNIUS PAUL will find a lot to love here. RECOMMENDED!

>> VARIOUS – Disco Not Disco 3LP (Strut) *25th Anniversary – Yellow Vinyl

An absolutely essential disco compilation gets a much needed anniversary version. Disco Not Disco collects some of the best leftfield disco and early dance cuts from the post-Studio 54 era in downtown Manhattan. Featuring tracks from LIQUID LIQUID, ARTHUR RUSSELL, DON CHERRY, WAS (NOT WAS), YOKO ONO and DJ NICKY SIANO, this one is now finally back in stock after a limited Record Store Day run. A MUST GRAB! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
