Reckless Records 11/22/19 New Releases

BLOOD INCANTATION – Hidden History of the Human Race LP/CD (Dark Descent)
  black or green vinyl
They made us wait until the year was nearly over but the much anticipated second album by the mighty Denver death metallers BLOOD INCANTATION is finally here. We were massive fans of their existential, cosmic horror inspired technical death metal debut “Starspawn” & the group continues to contemplate the void on their follow-up. Complex riffs & stream of consciousness song structure with some very melodic & memorable moments that owe as much to MORBID ANGEL as they do early MASTODON.This is possibly the best metal album of 2019 & if you can’t already tell, we’re TOTALLY STOKED ON THIS ONE. RECOMMENDED.

DANNY BROWN – uknowhatimsayin¿ LP/CD (Warp) now available in physical formats!
After the darkly revelatory Atrocity Exhibition in 2016, lovable weirdo DANNY BROWN returns again to the light with “uknowhatimsayin¿”, a record rooted both in hip-hop formalism and DANNY’s old goofball persona. It’s quite the change from his explorations on isolation, depression, and drug abuse, but we find it refreshing to hear DANNY throw in some goofy lines that rhyme “rental car” with “Pat Benatar”. The sound here owes a good deal to classic hip-hop of the past, with Q-TIP’s executive production allowing for the subtler parts to shine through the bombast. As a result, DANNY’s latest is also his most effortless, natural, and assured, the sound of a rap superstar at the top of his form just having a bit of fun. Also featuring contributions from JPEGMAFIA, RUN THE JEWELS, BLOOD ORANGE and FLYING LOTUS!

DHIDALAHThreshold LP (Guruguru Brain) 
“Threshold” is the 2019 album from the Tokyo based trio known as DHIDALAH. Fuzzed out space rock with repetitive kraut rock grooves that will appeal to fans of the Guruguru Brain label in general, HAWKWIND, EARTHLESS, the Riding Easy label etc… 

DJ NIGGA FOX – Cartas Na Manga 2LP (Principe)
Lisbon’s DJ NIGGA FOX makes his triumphant return to Principe, following his Warp LP and a trio of deadly 12″s on Principe. Totally weird, rhythm-driven madness from one of the distinctive producers of the last decade. Absolutely devastating soundsystem destruction from one of our favorites. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

LEVIATHAN – Verrater 4LP (Profound Lore)
Previously released on CD in 2002 on the Tumult label, this collection of demos by Jef Whitehead aka Wrest aka LEVIATHAN has been teased as a vinyl release for over a decade & it’s finally here!! All of the music has been remastered for vinyl & comes in a ridiculously fancy 8 panel gatefold sleeve with new art housed in a slipcase style outer sleeve. Hear some of the origins of American black metal on this amazing limited edition set courtesy of Profound Lore. RECOMMENDED.

POLVO – Polvo (Merge) green vinyl
POLVO’s first two EP’s “Can I Ride” and “Vibracobra” set the tone for the spastic noise and alt-rock that would be their calling card throughout the 90s. Here, Merge records – well – “merges” them onto one LP for the first time. ESSENTIAL!

ARTHUR RUSSELL – Iowa Dream LP/CD (Audika)
Iowa Dream is a collection of demos from ARTHUR RUSSELL, which are very straightforward and disarming. Simple, direct songs that are tender and minimalistic, with an emotional depth
and playfulness. Joining RUSSELL here are ERNIE BROOKS, RHYS CHATHAM, HENRY FLYNT and JON GIBSON. Simultaneously heartbreaking and breezy, in just the right way. A revelatory album.

Reckless Records 11/15/19 New Releases

FRAN – A Private Picture LP/CD (Fire Talk)
Impressive debut from Chicago’s FRAN, who writes dream- tinged rock and folk that seems to be ensnared by her confessional lyrics; the emotional push and pull from fragile to tensed morphs within the songs themselves, and the music mirrors those emotional shifts perfectly. Needless to say, this is RECOMMENDED.

STEVE HAUSCHILDT – Nonlin CD (Ghostly) vinyl delayed til next month
Steve Hauschildt is one of the most exciting electronic composers going these days. The Chicagoan’s second album in two years was recorded while touring for the
previous record in L.A., NYC, Tbilisi, Brussels & Chicago. His music is often chilly in a digital sense, but Hauschildt also has a wonderful knack for writing melodic hooks that set his music apart from a lot of other contemporaries. RECOMMENDED

MAYHEM – Daemon LP/CD (Century Media) indie only color or black vinyl
Norwegian black metal legends MAYHEM have existed in some form or another since 1984 but their 2019 album “Daemon” is only their 6th. The last few records had them exploring more technical realms but they’ve returned to a more traditional sound this time around & it works pretty well. Attila’s Vocals are always unique & Necrobutcher’s bass lines give the songs a unique melodic twist. Fans of the band won’t be disappointed at all. RECOMMENDED.

RUINS – Marea / Tide 2LP w/7” (Music From Memory)
Music From Memory presents a reissue of a lost record by Italian duo ALESSANDRO PIZZIN and PIERGIUSEPPE CIRANNA aka RUINS (no relationship to the Japanese with the same name). Originally released in 1984, this was inspired by Italian painter LUIGI VIOLA. Beautiful synthesizers, metallic chimes and other dreamlike sounds comprise this fantastic album. The 7″ contains 4 unreleased tracks and a printed insert with updated liner notes.

VATICAN SHADOW – Kuwaiti Air Force LP (Hospital Productions)
Kuwaiti Airforce was a very rare VATICAN SHADOW cassette (only 40 made!) and now it appears on double vinyl for the first time. This includes previously unreleased collaborations with SILENT SERVANT and DEMDIKE STARE.

Reckless Records New Releases 11/8/19

NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS – Ghosteen LP/CD (Bad Seeds Inc)
“Ghosteen” is the first Nick Cave album of entirely new songs since the death of his son Arthur in 2015. The tragedy was addressed in some parts of “Skeleton Tree” & the companion film that went with it, but the grief & sorrow of losing his child is spread throughout this incredible album. The mood is obviously sombre at times but there is a sense of hope & healing to be found. There aren’t any drums or much rhythm at all here, instead the mostly synthesizer based songs flow along, almost in a stream of consciousness way that fits perfectly with the often spoken lyrics & choir backing vocals. The album feels like a person trying to work through their grief & pain in their head & how sometimes brief moments of happiness will appear then get erased almost immediately in guilt. No doubt this is heavy affair but it’s a beautiful one too. RECOMMENDED.

GENE CLARK – No Other LP/CD/2CD deluxe (4AD)
The 1974 album by THE BYRDS front man Gene Clark didn’t cause much of a stir when it was originally released but over the years it’s slowly built a cult following. Now reissued & remastered by 4AD, this incredible psychedelic folk rock record sounds fantastic. The title track is an epic psych-rock jam with some fuzzed-out bass & keyboards that sound futuristic even now. The record has a pretty dark vibe, reminding us of Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Graham Nash’s excellent first few solo albums, Terry Reid etc… Fans will want to pick this up for the remastered sound & we’d imagine a lot people will be stoked to hear this for this first time. RECOMMENDED.

GARY DAVENPORT – Scattered Thoughts LP (Numero)
Numero gives us a quick little 13-track comp from San Antonio’s GARY DAVENPORT, founder of Closet Records and accomplished musician in the local scene. Really nice late 70’s lo-fi guitar pop in the vein of CLEANERS FROM VENUS and TELEVISION PERSONALITIES. 

HAVE A NICE LIFE – Sea of Worry (The Flenser)
The Connecticut band HAVE A NICE LIFE are known for their nihilistic lyrics & dark post-punk sound. Despite those descriptors, the bands music can actually be pretty melodic & that’s the case on a lot of the tunes on their 2019 album “Sea of Worry.” The recording is a little lo-fi & reminds us of early WILD NOTHING, Kranky era DEERHUNTER, BELONG, DIIV etc… Fans of  this band will not be disappointed. RECOMMENDED.

PETER IVERS – Becoming Peter Ivers 2LP/CD (RVNG)
RVNG gifts us with a beauty of a collection from the late PETER IVERS, gathering demos, rehearsals, studio sessions and more that dig closer to the root of IVERS’ haunting outsider folk, glam-laden pop and leftfield sonic experiments. IVERS was tragically murdered under mysterious circumstances in 1983, lending an added air of melancholy to these tracks. Fortunately, RVNG has found these previously unheard recordings, which strip away production pretenses and lay bare the brilliance of his songwriting. 

LAPALUX – Amnioverse 2LP/CD (Brainfeeder)
Fourth full-length on Brainfeeder for Stuart Howard, aka LAPALUX, and this one builds its foundation from more fragile and organic materials. Howard constructed these tracks using snippets of voice from friends and family, layering them with recordings of wind, rain and fire. But make no mistake, this is not field recording alone. Howard gives us a dance record with rich modular synths, breakbeats and breezy analog percussion, making something far more theatrical than he’s ever done.

MOOR MOTHER – Analog Fluids of Sonic Black Holes LP/CD (Don Giovanni)
Camae Ayewa returns for her third record under her moniker MOOR MOTHER, and her first since 2017’s “The Motionless Present”. Ayewa has kept busy, working as vocalist for free jazz unit IRREVERSIBLE ENTANGLEMENTS, collaborating with ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO, and most recently provided a remix for noise metal duo THE BODY. It’s hard to truly categorize MOOR MOTHER’s music, but “Analog Fluids” is the most clearly “hip-hop” of her career, utilizing more beat-driven cadences and adding broken beat production that often resembles leftfield peers like CLIPPING or JPEGMAFIA. Is this hip-hop in the most conservative sense of the term? It’s pushing against that boundary into the realm of free poetry and sound collage. This is killer stuff for those with an ear towards forward-thinking music.

CHARLES RUMBACK & RYLEY WALKER – Little Common Twist LP/CD (Thrill Jockey)
This local collaboration between high-demand free jazz drummer CHARLES RUMBACK and the bad boy of fingerpicked guitar RYLEY WALKER explores the boundless free improv that both excel in, while still being tied together by their intuitive sense for cooperation. RECOMMENDED for fans of BERT JANSCH or JOHN RENBOURN, as well as avant jazz along the lines of SUN RA or the AACM. For those maybe scared off by this description – this is still very accessible and endlessly rewarding music.

VICTIMS – Victims LP (In The Red)
It’s kind of insane that it’s taken this long for official reissues of the legendary recordings by the late 70’s Aussie punkers THE VICTIMS to see the light of day. There have been reissues here & there of the singles but now the classic 7″s are here with a full side of previously unreleased demos. The featured Dave Faulkner (listed as Dave Flick here) who would later go on to THE HOODOO GURUS. Catchy as hell tunes with a similar menace to early SAINTS with hints of  60s garage. SO RECOMMENDED!!!

V/A – Strain, Crack & Break: Music from the Nurse With Wound List Volume 1 (France) 2LP (Finders Keepers)
The NURSE WITH WOUND list has been a touchstone for record collectors for years and now, finally, NWW’s STEPHEN STAPLETON has partnered with FINDERS KEEPERS to present the ‘right tracks’ for the public to feast on. Artists include JACQUES THOLLOT, LARD FREE, ETRON FOU LELOUBLAN, JEAN COHEN-SOLAL, Z., PIERRE HENRY and more. Official, authenticated, legal and cool.

Reckless Records New Releases 11/1/19

PATRICK COWLEY – Mechanical Fantasy Box LP/CD (Dark Entries)
San Francisco’s Dark Entries continues their noble campaign of releasing or reissuing the works of PATRICK COWLEY. Mechanical Fantasy Box mines more reel-to-reels from COWLEY’s unissued archives, alongside a journal chronicling COWLEY’s sexual discoveries at the time and his post-Stonewall liberation. This also includes photo collages and doodles, so if you’re a COWLEY fanatic like most of us here are, this is ESSENTIAL!

ITASCA – Spring LP (Paradise of Bachelors)
Since the release of the excellent 2016 album “Open to Chance”, Kayla Cohen transplanted from L.A. to a small adobe house in New Mexico for two seasons to write “Spring.” Having just spent some time in Santa Fe & Albuquerque myself, I can very much understand the draw of writing & recording in that magical place. There’s a certain slowness to everything there, almost like everyone understands that you need to take some time out to appreciate the landscape that is beautiful as it is harsh & amazing sunsets that are so difficult to describe. Cohen seems to have absorbed those New Mexico qualities as the songs seem to be in no hurry to present themselves, they just are what they are, simple & pure. With some help from a number of current & ex Chicagoans including Cooper of CAVE/BITCHIN’ BAJAS, Jim Elkington on string arrangements & Mark Riordan on piano amongst others, Kayla Cohen has created a masterpiece. RECOMMENDED.

LINDSTRØM – On A Clear Day I Can See You Forever LP/CD (Smalltown Supersound)
Disco revivalist LINDSTRØM returns with a minimalist piece of synth worship, utilizing hardware instruments exclusively to craft lean, moody tracks. Certainly less danceable, but no less cosmic or gripping.

MID-AIR THIEF – Crumbling LP/CD (Top Shelf)
Top Shelf Records gifts us the first physical edition of MID-AIR THIEF’s stunning LP available outside of self-released editions from their native South Korea.  “Crumbling” is a bizarre mixture of ethereal folk a la Japan’s GHOST with cosmic psych-pop that utilizes both drum machines and analog synthesizers. The result is one of the most thrilling and unique records of this past decade, able to pull from past influences to draw them together in a swirling collage of new sounds. The music here is filled with pathos, as profound as it is uncategorizable.

Image result for om bbc radio 1

OM – BBC RADIO 1 2×10” (Drag City)
Four songs from “Advaitic Songs” & “God Is Good” recorded at BBC Radio 1 in May 2019. This is a great sounding session featuring Tyler from WATTER on synths.

Image result for purple mountains

PURPLE MOUNTAINS – PURPLE MOUNTAINS LP (Drag City) vinyl finally back in stock
We’d imagine that most people reading this know that former SILVER JEWS front man, poet & singer David Berman took his own life in the summer of 2019. Listening to the record posthumously is a pretty strange experience because the lyrics have so much wore weight & everything is laid bare for all to hear. It’s such a tragic story but we suppose we should all feel lucky that David left us this last gift.

Image result for rodan hat factory

RODAN – Hat Factory LP (Quarterstick)
More RODAN? Don’t mind if we do! These recordings were made at the Hat Factory studio in Baltimore in 1993. These are early versions of songs that would end up ontheir classic album “Rusty.” These aren’t just demos though, these are excellent quality recordings with some different energy & vibes. RECOMMENDED!

RYUICHI SAKAMOTO – Thousand Knives of Ryuichi Sakamoto LP (Wewantsounds)
Wewantsounds present a reissue of RYUCHI SAKAMOTO’s first solo album ‘Thousand Knives of Ryuichi Sakamoto’, originally released in 1978 on the sought-after Better Days label. SAKAMOTO was a member of YELLOW MAGIC ORCHESTRA at the time, but the group hadn’t released their first album yet. Features SAKAMOTO on a wide range of synthesizers. This album was a blueprint for the YMO sound.

MAMMAN SANI – La Musique Électronique du Niger LP (Sahel Sounds)
MAMMANI SANI ABDULLAYE is a legendary name in Niger’s avant garde. These mesmerising keyboard instrumentals are absolutely the stuff of dreams. Originally used in radio broadcasts and TV segues, these will put listeners in another world. ASTONISHING!

SUDAN ARCHIVES – Athena LP/CD (Stones Throw) 
After a pair of stellar EPs, we finally get the first full-length from SUDAN ARCHIVES. The LA-via-Cincinnati violinist has made a name for herself with a palette that bridges beat production and Sudanese fiddle music together into very idiosyncratic R&B. The result is music that expertly maneuvers between bold, delicate, defiant and confessional. This will undoubtedly make its way onto many “Best Of” lists, including for those of us here at Reckless.

A WINGED VICTORY FOR THE SULLEN – The Undivided Five LP/CD (Ninja Tune) 
 “The Undivided Five” is the fifth overall release from A WINGED VICTORY FOR THE SULLEN, following their debut,two film scores and an EP. The duo of Dustin O’Halloran and former STARS OF THE LID member Adam Wiltzie bring more of their detailed arrangements and sweeping chords to this project, drawing comparisons to MAX RICHTER, TIM HECKER or the late great JOHANN JOHANNSSON. “The Undivided Five” is based conceptually on the patterns of the number five – whether it be the five senses, the divine interval or a harmonic perfect fifth – drawing inspiration from artist Hilma af Klimt, who belonged to a group of women called “The Five” who stressed keeping connections with the spiritual realm. That oughta give you an idea of the immense heights reached by the duo on this record.

a3554547958_10.jpgTHE BODY – Remixed 2LP (Thrill Jockey)
We love anything even tangentially related to the Portland-via-Providence noise duo THE BODY, from collaborations with FULL OF HELL and THOU to this, a collection of tracks remixed by some of the best names in metal and experimental genres. This double LP set includes reworked versions of BODY tracks from LINGUA IGNOTA, MOOR MOTHER, CONTAINER and MARK SOLOTROFF, among others. Obviously this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, but if you’re unfamiliar with the band, you gotta pick up one of their albums proper!

CHRIS & COSEY reissues:
Heartbeat LP (CTI)
Trance LP (CTI)
Songs of Love & Lust LP (CTI)
Exotika LP (CTI)
Timeless and innovative, ex-Throbbing Gristle members CHRIS CARTER and COSEY FANNI TUTTI branched out as an electronic duo whose releases are iconic to fans and DJs alike. These albums are highly sought and available once again. All are essential. Miss at your own peril. Get ‘em while they last.


MIKAL CRONIN – Seeker LP/dlx LP/CD (Merge) “Peak Vinyl” edition on color vinyl with bonus 12” single Arsonist / Tsinorsa
MIKAL CRONIN has been busy both as a solo artist and as a member of TY SEGALL’s backing band (or more accurate, garage rock art collective) FREEDOM BAND along with TY and CHARLES MOOTHART. These artists have always been closely connected, but maybe never more for CRONIN than here. FREEDOM BAND backs him up here, and the power of the rhythm section and big, layered-vocal choruses make the connection easy with FUZZ or his bandmates’ solo material. It’s not a change in the formula; sure CRONIN tends to emphasize harmony and arrangement more than his peers, but it’s still SEGALL-esque rock. I happen to like that formula. If you do too, pick this up.


DEATHPROD – Occulting Disk LP/CD (Smalltown Supersound)
Occulting Disk is the first album since 2004 by Helge Sten under the DEATHPROD name. The producer & SUPERSILENT member creates long form dark ambient drones with low frequency, industrial backing. RECOMMENDED.


GROUPER – A I A: Dream Loss & A I A: Alien Observer LP (Kranky) LP reissues of Liz Harris’ A I A albums … here’s what we wrote when they came out on CD in 2011: We’ve been pretty much obsessed with all things GROUPER from day one and to say that we were anticipating a new release from Ms. Harris with bated breath is an understatement to say the least. You can imagine our near death by spontaneous combustion when we found out that she was releasing two records ON THE SAME DAY. Liz Harris has graced us with a few singles and EPs since the incredible Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill and though we love pretty much everything she does, the album format is where she shines brightest. “AIA: Dream Loss” reminds us most of Harris’ amazing Cover the Windows & Walls album with many of the songs living in a sunless, underwater murk with only subtle hints of the sun in the sky above. Some of the darkest moments on the two records occur here but there are also moments of powerful beauty that may leave you gasping for air. Dream Loss is also more guitar-centric and less Wurlitzer driven than Alien Observer which also gives it more of a ‘classic’ GROUPER sound. The albums definitely have their own vibe but they also work quite well together and we can say that with confidence since we listened to them straight through in a row before writing this!!


HIEROGLYPHIC BEING – Synth Expression / Rhythmic Cubism LP (On the Corner)
Chicago’s JAMAL MOSS aka HIEROGLYPHIC BEING presents the Synth Expressionism/Rhythmic Cubisim LP. A collection of idioms that have no past or future. Jarring poly-rhythmic polyphony that imbues a sense of timelessness.


Two Japanese titans of the underground join forces for one monumental LP, recorded live in 1973. LES RALLIZES DENUDES take the VELVET UNDERGROUND’s White Light/White Heat as a departure point while TAJ MAHAL TRAVELLERS spin their well-travelled cosmic drone and off-kilter percussion.

OM KALSOUM – Enta Omri LP (Souma)
Enta Omri
is OM KALSOUM’s most famous song, composed by MOHAMED ABDEL WAHAB, who is still rightly regarded as a prominent musician and composer in Egypt. With Enta Omri Abdel opened up the traditional repertoire of the diva to a more innovative style that the composer was known for, using electric guitar and fusing oriental themes with Western elements.

PITA – Get On LP (Editions Mego)
Vienna’s PETER REHBERG aka PITA returns with what is his 4th solo album and the latest in his ‘Get’ series (‘Get Out’, ‘Get Out’ and ‘Get Down’). PITA has been pushing the limits of hardware and software since the ’90s, dishing out harsh noise, gnarled rhythms and blurred melodies. Both analog and digital sounds are deployed as a means of expressing something outside of everyday electronics.


JIM SULLIVAN – Jim Sullivan LP/CD (Light in the Attic)
We’ve been waiting for this one for years. Light in the Attic has finally reissued the final album by Jim Sullivan. After releasing this album in 1972 on Hugh Hefner’s Playboy label, he mysteriously vanished in New Mexico. His disappearance is a mystery to this day. This record is an impressive follow-up to the now legendary UFO record, with a great recording,some great horn arrangements & fantastic songs from Sullivan. Fans of Mike Nesmith to Cat Stevens to Lee Hazlewood will eat this up.


JIM SULLIVAN – If the Evening Were Dawn LP/CD (Light in the Attic)
Ten previously unreleased acoustic recordings from Jim Sullivan, the talented singer/songwriter that mysteriously disappeared in New Mexico in 1975 after releasing two incredible country records. This was recorded in 1969 & features acoustic versions of some of songs from the amazing U.F.O. record & a few other tunes. For fans of Tim Hardin, Mike Nesmith, Lee Hazlewood etc… RECOMMENDED.


SUNN O))) – Pyroclasts LP (Southern Lord) red vinyl, ltd. 500 copies
SUNN O))) brings us a companion piece to the excellent “Life Metal”, recorded during the same two week session with Steve Albini. Stephen O’Malley is joined on this guy by Greg Anderson, Tim Midyett, T.O.S. and Hildur Guonadottir. RECOMMENDED!


Colorado is Neil Young’s 39th album & the first album with Crazy Horse since the excellent Psychedelic Pill back in 2012 & first with guitarist Nils Lofgren (replacing Frank Sampedro) since way, way back on Trans. Crazy Horse always seems to bring the edge & anger out of Neil & that’s that case here as Colorado is a self-proclaimed climate change protest record. The is the best Neil Young record since the last Crazy Horse record if that gives you any indication how important they are as a backing band. RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records New Releases 10/18/19

Greetings, Reckless Customers!

As you can see, we’re trying out a new way of doing this weekly release blog. Rather than give you a sprawling block of text of only titles, we decided to pare things down a bit and present selected titles. We hope you like the change and if you have any feedback, please let us know. TGIF! Have a great weekend!

Your Friends at Reckless

BATTLES – Juice B Crypts 2LP/CD (Warp) ltd. clear vinyl
BATTLES is back again with their fourth full length, and first since 2015’s “La Di Da Di”. Like always, rhythm is king here, and the duo of Ian Williams and John Stanier give us the goods. The cuts here are both pummelling and catchy, relying equally on elliptical synth lines and crushing drums. This reviewer is happy to see the name of Sal Principato, lead singer of the legendary dance-punk group LIQUID LIQUID, featured as a vocalist. It’s a connection I hadn’t made, but just fits so perfectly. Anyway, if you’re already familiar, you will not be disappointed!

JAIMIE BRANCH – FLY or DIE II: bird dogs of paradise LP (International Anthem)
Chicago trumpeter JAIMIE BRANCH follows up her stellar 2017 outing “Fly or Die” with a heavy, bracing sequel subtitled “Bird Dogs of Paradise”. The jazz on Int’l Anthem runs the gamut from free improvisation to beat music to spoken-word social commentary, and BRANCH incorporates all of these elements to push her record further leftfield of even her IA labelmates. Careening between shambolic improvisation, percussive Afro-Latin grooves and into drowsily shuffling blues, BRANCH sets up a record unified by the clarity of its unapologetic message, a condemnation of American capitalism and racism. Plus, we get to hear BRANCH sing for the first time (she’s really quite good too). Featuring fellow Chicagoan BEN LAMAR GAY and others from the local jazz scene, this is yet another choice release from Int’l Anthem. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

FLOATING POINTS – Crush LP/CD (Ninja Tune) indie exclusive alternate artwork
Sam Shepherd, aka FLOATING POINTS, has made a name for himself with jazzy, atmospheric dance tracks that are built less for the dance floor and more for lying on the floor with your Bose noise-cancelling headphones. That’s certainly very different on “Crush”, his most groove-laden effort to date. Shepherd spends a great deal of focus on laying down larger, syncopated beats to cut thru the ambience and get your feet moving. But fear not, braindance-heads: there’s plenty of glitchy detail to be had. Each track has its own metamorphosis, and Shepherd does a wonderful job of tweaking pieces to build a sense of tension. “Crush” is adventurous dance music at its best. A MIND MELTER! RECOMMENDED!

ARIEL KALMA – Nuits Blanches au Studio 116 LP (Transversales Disques)
Transversales Disques announce the release of ‘Nuits Blanches au Studio 116’, unreleased rarities from ARIEL KALMA’s personal archives. Recorded in the legendary GRM Studio during the ’70s.

SCREAMING FEMALES – Singles Too LP/CD (Don Giovanni)
New Jersey DIY legends SCREAMING FEMALES compile their complete set of non-album cuts, including 7″ singles, rarities and digital-only b-sides. This one is a MUST.

SLIKBACK – Lasakaneku / Tomo 2LP (Hakunu Kulala)
SLIKBACK’s vinyl debut–this ‘early years’ double-LP compilation includes his pair of acclaimed Hakuna Kulala EPs, the Lasakaneka and Tomo, plus a trio of exclusive new bangers. Incendiary new club mutations from East and Central Africa, compatible with Gqom, trap, speedcore, dancehall, the PRINCIPE label, Equiknoxx and other forms of avant-dance music. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

YUKIHIRO TAKAHASHI – Saravah LP/CD (We Want Sounds)
We Want Sounds present a reissue of YUKIHIRO TAKAHASHI’s debut solo album Saravah!, originally released in 1978. The month before recording the YELLOW MAGIC ORCHESTRA debut album, YUKIHIRO TAKAHASHI entered the studio with his fellow band-members RYUICHI SAKAMOTO and HAROUMI HOSONO to record this album, ‘Saravah’, along with the cream of the Japanese scene.
