Reckless Records 4/7/23 New Releases


FACS – Still Life in Decay LP/CD (Trouble In Mind) limited color or black vinyl

The always reliable FACS are back with a new one in 2023. After a few albums with a lot of studio trickery & manipulation, this one is mostly pretty straight forward recording-wise. The result is probably the most accurate documentation of what a force they are as a live band. Driving & repetitive THIS HEAT-esque rhythms with sparse & brittle guitar from Brian. His voice is also way on top here which also gives this record a different feel. Another great onefrom these local heroes. RECOMMENDED.

WEDNESDAY – Rat Saw God LP/CD/TAPE (Dead Oceans) limited color or black w/ limited bonus CD while supplies last

The Asheville band WEDNESDAY has moved over to DEAD OCEANS for their 2023 album. The recording on this one is pretty hi-fi & it makes their 90s alt rock/grunge inspired tunes sound even heavier. Fans of PIXIES, NIRVANA, WEEZER etc… will eat this up. 

YAEJI – With a Hammer LP/CD (XL) limited pink or black vinyl

Following a run of singles and mixtapes, this debut LP from YAEJI throws in the entire kitchen sink, with flickering collages of vocal samples, impressionistic synths, frenetic beats and hooks that range from sugar sweet pop to jagged, dissonant experimentation. The result lands somewhere in an area between hip-house, 90s-esque IDM and hyperpop, but to limit this record to those conventions might be a disservice. Absolutely worth a listen for fans of leftfield experimental pop.

Reckless Records 3/24/23 & 3/31/23 New Releases

another busy few weeks with busy events & tons of product coming so we had to combine these two releases lists



Singer and cellist LUCINDA CHUA follows up her 2021 album “Antidotes” with another spacious, introspective LP filled with lush tones, orchestral dynamics and soft, impressionistic vocals. CHUA formerly worked with the moniker FELIX on Kranky records, and this should appeal to fans of her Kranky labelmates GROUPER and LOW. On 4AD and RECOMMENDED!

ALICE COLTRANE – Journey in Satchidananda LP (Impulse) Verve Acoustic Sound Series

An essential 60s/70s jazz album & one of the most important spiritual jazz records ever, The 4th solo album by Alice Coltrane finally available again as part of the fantastic Verve Acoustic Sound remaster series. Alice had recently become a follower of Swami Satchidananda & her music became a vessel for her pursuit of knowledge & spirituality. With players such as Pharoah Sanders, Charlie Haden & Rashied Ali (along with others), Coltrane created some truly futuristic music that still sounds groundbreaking today. There’s not many albums we can recommendmore highly than this honestly.

DARKSPACE – LP reissues (Season of Mist)

Season of Mist has done us all a favor by reissuing the classic albums by the cosmic & atmospheric black metal duo known as DARK SPACE. Mixing elements of drone, dark ambient & black metal, DARK SPACE created some of the most intense & artful black metal albums ever. RECOMMENDED.

DARK SPACE – I LP (Season of Mist)

DARK SPACE – II LP (Season of Mist)

DARK SPACE – III LP (Season of Mist)

ENSLAVED – Heimdal LP (Nuclear Blast) now on vinyl!

Those of you that have been stalking our metal sections for the past decade + will know that we love ENSLAVED at Reckless. There was a while there where they seemed almost unstoppable. They’ve slowed down a little bit after losing their long term drummer, covid restrictions etc… but they’re back in ’23 with their 16th (!!) album. The previous album “Utgard” was their most straight-ahead metal album in years & this one is the opposite, probably their most progressive record in years. Complex arrangements, their classic blend of harsh & clean vocals & some cool synth textures & experimentation while making sure not to forget some truly stoked-worthy riffage & epic soloing. RECOMMENDED!

PINK FLOYD – Dark Side of the Moon: Live at Wembley Empire Pool, London, 1974 LP/CD (Pink Floyd)

In celebration of 50 years for “Dark Side of the Moon” comes the first stand-alone vinyl issue of this 1974 live recording from Wembley Empire Pool in London. The recording is top notch & it’s amazing to hear the band absolutely kill these songs in that era. The LP comes with two posters. RECOMMENDED.

Reckless Records 3/10 & 3/17 New Releases


BEHERIT – Drawing Down the Moon LP/CD/TAPE (Nuclear War Now)

Finally!! Fancy reissue of some of the most evil music ever put to tape, BEHERIT’S 1993 album “Drawing Down the Moon.” Everything about this record totally kicks ass. From the opening spoken intro, you know you’re in for something serious. The vibe of this record is totally oppressive, dark & heavy so much so that we wonder if the band even realized if they were onto something this great while they were making this classic metal slab. This is essential listening for any fan of black/death metal specifically bands such as VON, SARCOFAGO, CELTIC FROST etc…LEGENDARY!!!!!!!!! This NWN press comes in a heavy, tip-on gatefold with a thick booklet.

COLOURED BALLS – Ball Power LP (Just Add Water) color or black vinyl

Just Add Water hits it out of the park with this reissue of the 1973 album from Australia’s COLOURED BALLS. Like THE SAINTS & RADIO BIRDMAN, COLOURED BALLS played hard rock with hints of what was to come with punk rock & some power pop influence. Lead guitarist Lobby Loyde was the group’s wild card, with incredible soloing ala Randy Holden with interesting use of effects. Any fan of Aussie proto-punk & early punk absolutely MUST pick this up. INCREDIBLE!!

DAVID CUNNINGHAM – Grey Scale LP (Superior Viaduct)

First ever reissue of this 1976 album by the Irish artist David Cunningham. Along with a group of non musicians, Cunningham took inspiration from contemporary experimental artists of the era like Gavin Bryars, Michael Nyman, David Toop etc… & managed to create a unique album of modern minimalism. Somewhere between Moondog & Steve Reich, these repetitive minimalist pieces are truly engaging. 

ELDER – Innate Passage LP (Armageddon Label) 

The Berlin based progressive metal masters return with their 6th album. These guys are at the top of their game here with 5 lengthy tracks of complex but melodic & catchy progressive rock with nods at bands like MASTODON & BARONESS but with their own distinct approach. RECOMMENDED.

FELT – Gold Mine Trash LP (1972)

FELT – Bubblegum Perfume LP (1972)

We’re big fans of FELT here at Reckless so any reissue is reason to celebrate. “Gold Mine Trash” focuses on the the Cherry Red Years while “Bubblegum Perfume” documents the Creation years

LONNIE HOLLEY – Oh Me Oh My LP/CD (Jagjaguwar) limited color or black

The 2023 album from the Atlanta based musician/ visual artist Lonnie Holley features has a pretty impressive list of collaborators including Michael Stipe, Moor Mother, Sharon Van Etten & Justin Vernon of BON IVER. Holley’s music is difficult to categorize. Combining elements of jazz, blues & spoken word poetry, Holley has created his own style of spiritual music. 


Temporal Drift’s official LES RALLIZES DENUDES reissue series continues with three new releases on the same day. There’s been a ton of music released over the years but almost all of it has been unofficial. The band actually only released two proper albums during their 30 year existence. 

LES RALLIZES DENUDES – Mizutani LP (Temporal Drift) red vinyl

“Mizutani” is an outlier for the band as they’re best known for their scorching, blown-out  live recordings but this one is a mellow album of outsider folk tunes featuring the band in a stripped-down duo form recorded in 1970. 

LES RALLIZES DENUDES – ‘77 Live LP (Temporal Drift) clear vinyl 

“’77 Live” was recorded in Tokyo in 1977 & displays their famous blown-out, feedback drenched sound perfectly. 

LES RALLIZES DENUDES – ‘67-’69 Studio Et Live LP (Temporal Drift) purple vinyl 

“’67-’69” documents the early years of the band & these are the most experimental & far-out recordings from these reissues hinting at what was to come with noise music in Japan & other countries around the world in the coming decades. 

NNAMDI – Are You Happy EP (Sooper)

The talented Chicago musician Nnamdi teamed up with his MONOBODY bandmate Lynn to create this EP of electronic nuggets. A mix of straight-ahead auto-tuned electronic pop & some occasional busy programming that remind us of early ’00s SQUAREPUSHER/APHEX TWIN.

THE SMILE – Europe: Live Recordings 2022 LP (XL)

If you’ve been lucky enough to see THE SMILE live then you now that their debut album isn’t some sort of studio trickery, those guys can really play that stuff. Actually the band is more energetic live & they tend to stretch out the songs & take more chances which you can hear on those limited & excellent sounding EP. There’s a SCORCHING version of Thom’s solo track “FeelingPulledApartByHorses” here that really shows what this band can go. 

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Blacklips Bar – Androgyns & Deviants: Industrial Romance for Bruised & Battered Angels, 1992-1995 LP (Anthology)

This lovely comp focuses on the Blacklips Performance Cult, a cabaret, drag and DJ night at the Pyramid Club in NYC founded by ANOHNI, Johanna Constantine and Psychotic Eve. Inspired by the queer cabaret culture of interwar Europe, the music and performances here range from surreal & absurd to shocking & emotional. Compiled by ANOHNI herself, this both provided her a career springboard and showcased a vision of queer expression seen in the cultural underground throughout history to today. On Anthology Recordings and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Pacific Breeze 3: Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie 1975- 1987 LP/CD/TAPE (Light in the Attic)

Attention Japanophiles!! Volume 3 of the very popular Pacific Breeze series is now here. City Pop was popular in Japan in the late 70s & early 80s & it’s a blend of disco, soft rock/pop & R&B. It’s almost like Muzak versions of yacht rock songs but like a lot of things, time has been kind to these unique sounds. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 2/24/23 New Releases

U.S. Girls – Bless This Mess


>> ISABELLE ANTENA – En Cavale LP (Numerophon) *Reissue – Black or Ltd. “Seaside” Silver Vinyl

After the French group ANTENA broke up in 1985, the singer Isabelle moved into a more pop direction with this solo album now reissued by Numero. There’s a similar Brazilian/samba influence but the sounds are smoother & more intentionally mainstream. Nods at 80s pop & R&B radio hits with touches of Japanese city pop. RECOMMENDED.

>> BIG|BRAVE – Nature Morte LP/CD (Thrill Jockey) *Black or Ltd. Lavender Vinyl

This new album from Montreal post-metal trio BIG|BRAVE (aka BIG BRAVE) makes use of empty space, cutting in textured walls of distortion and sharp, full-band stabs to the sparse atmospheres the band creates. Nature Morte should appeal to fans of labelmates SUMAC and THE BODY if the music was taken to a spartan extreme. RECOMMENDED.

>> EN ATTENDANT ANA – Principia LP/CS (Trouble In Mind) *Black or Ltd. Peach Color Vinyl

The French group EN ATTENDANT ANA returns with Principia. The quintet writes crystalline pop gems with nods at Reckless faves like STEREOLAB, BROADCAST & CAMERA OBSCURA. RECOMMENDED.

>> KATE FAGAN – I Don’t Wanna Be Too Cool LP/CD (Captured Tracks) *Expanded Edition – Milky Clear Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

I Don’t Wanna Be Too Cool is a classic slab of early 80s Chicago new wave/punk & it’s been expanded from a 7″ to an album with 4 extra tracks. Catchy as hell songs that sound like a mix of BLONDIE, SUBURBAN LAWNS, B-52’s etc… It’s great to be able to stock this in the store again. RECOMMENDED!

>> U.S. GIRLS – Bless This Mess LP/CD (4AD)

Stellar return for Meg Remy and her eighth record as U.S. GIRLS. Bless This Mess develops the USG sonic palette, honing the 80s-influenced electro-funk and bright psych-pop with a crisp, wood-paneled studio sound, while exploring Remy’s pregnancy and birth of her twin sons. Remy manages to strike a balance in between sultry and anthemic, and the result is a very visceral, “living” record that makes its way through the studio sheen. On 4AD and RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 2/17/23 New Releases

Screaming Females – Desire Pathway


>> ATTILA CSIHAR – Void Ov Voices: Baalbek LP (Ideologic Organ)

NOT METAL IN THE METAL SECTION ALERT!!! A very interesting debut solo release from MAYHEM vocalist & SUNN O))) collaborator Atilla Csihar. Through his travels, Atilla became obsessed with the Trilitons & the giant Monoliths of Baalbek, massive structures that pre-date Roman technology. Similar to the Pyramids, it’s difficult for contemporary Westerners to imagine structures of this magnitude being built thousands of years ago mainly because the knowledge has been lost. Csihar made some recordings at the site & supposedly went into a trance-like state likely inspired by the incalculable history surrounding him. Repeating deep vocal chants, looped field recordings & mysterious electronic sounds present a very mysterious listening experience. RECOMMENDED!

>> FRAN – Leaving LP (Fire Talk) *Black or Ltd. Indie Exclusive Cream Vinyl – Now available! ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

This sophomore record from Chicago’s Maria Jacobson embraces a production style both warm and restrained, putting her rich voice and melody-focused songwriting front and center. An excellent indie folk-pop record for the cold late winter months. RECOMMENDED.

>> JON HASSELL – Further Fictions: The Living City + Psychogeography CD (Nyeda)

>> JON HASSELL – The Living City LP (Nyeda)

>> JON HASSELL – Psychogeography LP (Nyeda)

Stunning archival releases from the late trumpeter and composer JON HASSELL, taken from the time of his 1990 album City: Works of Fiction. The Living City uses material from a collaborative audio-visual live set done with BRIAN ENO in 1989, while Psychogeography revisits the studio sessions, rearranging and building an alternate history using loose jams and takes. This is a relatively overlooked period in the JON HASSELL discography, but these recordings see him as creative, fruitful and vital as any period of his career. Truly essential stuff here that comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

>> PILE – All Fiction LP (Exploding In Sound)

Excellent new LP from prolific Boston post-punks PILE. All Fiction is among their most atmospheric, draping noise and reverb over their pummeling, PROTOMARTYR-ish rhythms with textured guitars and synths. Reliably sharp material here on Exploding In Sound. RECOMMENDED.

>> SCREAMING FEMALES – Desire Pathway LP/CD (Don Giovanni)

Eighth record from NJ underground legends SCREAMING FEMALES picks up where All at Once left off. Punchy guitar riffs, earworm melodies and some axe-shredding magic from Marissa Paternoster make this one of the SCREAMALES most straight-ahead capital R Rock records to date. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 2/10/23 New Releases

Yo La Tengo – This Stupid World


>> BURIAL – Streetlands 12” (Hyperdub)

Streetlands follows up BURIAL’s excellent ambient EP Antidawn, taking the former’s sparse, icy sound design even further while evoking a more “pre-modern” pastoralism. Perfect music for the cold winter months. RECOMMENDED!

>> DWAAL TROUPE – Lucky Dog LP (Ally) ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

This 2021 album from Chicago’s DWAAL TROUPE gets an LP edition. Catchy, noisy jangle pop with a playful DIY approach that puts it in the league with Elephant 6 artists. Features members of another local up-&-comer, LIFEGUARD. RECOMMENDED!

>> HOLLIE KENNIFF – We All Have Places That We Miss LP/CD (Western Vinyl)

This is the 2nd album on Western Vinyl by the Canadian ambient artist Hollie Kenniff. Similar to the last album which we loved, her songs are a mix of triumphant ambient with dream pop & even emo elements at times that remind us of M83 instrumentals, Julianna Barwick, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY soundtracks, MOGWAI, NOVELLER etc… RECOMMENDED!

>> JAKO MARON – The Electro Maloya Experiments of… 2LP (Nyege Nyege Tapes) *Black or Ltd. Red Vinyl

Really excellent electronic music made with modular synths & drum machines by this artist born & raisedon the island of Reunion of the coast of Madagascar. Taking influence from the primary local musical form Maloya, a genre associated with lower class workers, Maron has created some trance inducing music with enticing rhythms. RECOMMENDED!

>> 7 SECONDS – Walk Together Rock Together: Deluxe Edition LP (Trust) *Yellow Vinyl w/ book – Ltd. 1000

This 1985 hardcore classic has been remastered from the original tapes & reissued in a deluxe format with a heavy gatefold sleeve & 20 page booklet. Originally recorded at the legendary Inner Ear Studios by Dischord wizard Don Zientara with production help from Ian Mackaye himself, this melodic/posi hardcore still sounds fantastic today. RECOMMENDED!

>> YO LA TENGO – This Stupid World LP/CD (Matador)

It’s 2023 and at this point YO LA TENGO is as much an institution as the Library of Congress. It wouldn’t do them any damage to the legacy to rest on their laurels and put out a laid back, “hey we’re still here” sort of record. Yet This Stupid World is their most vivid and uptempo effort in nearly a decade. The band burns through nine tracks of indie rock with focus and skill, building pleasant rhythms only to deconstruct them in thrilling dissonant glory. As the title may imply, the songs here portray a world-weariness that comes with age, and yet this music ironically offers a glimmer of hope, a human touch that can break thru in that bleakly inhuman world. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 2/3/23 New Releases

Sunny War – Anarchist Gospel


>> LOSCIL/ LAWRENCE ENGLISH – Colours of Air CD (Kranky)

A wonderful collaboration between two masters of the ambient style Lawrence English & Scott Morgan
(aka LOSCIL). Starting with recordings of a very oldpipe organ in Brisbane, the duo manipulated & 
processed everything into mellow drones with occasional rhythmic hints & breathy chords. RECOMMENDED.

>> CURTIS MAYFIELD – Curtis/Live! 2LP (Rhino) *Ltd. Burgundy Fruit Punch Color Vinyl – “Start Your Ear Off Right” Series ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

One of the greatest live albums ever recorded available again on color vinyl via the 2023 Start Your Ear Off Right series. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

>> MY DAD IS DEAD – Peace, Love & Murder LP (Scat) *Black or Ltd. Color Vinyl

The MY DAD IS DEAD reissue campaign continues with this version of the 2nd album originally released in 1987. Similar to the first album, Mark Edwards plays all of the instruments. His style is really starting to form here with nods at JOY DIVISION’s bleak post-punk, melodic alt rock ala THE CURE, WIRE, IRON CURTAIN etc… RECOMMENDED.

>> MY DAD IS DEAD – Pow! 12” (Scat) *Black or Ltd. Color Vinyl

This 3 song EP was originally intended as the debut MY DAD IS DEAD release on Homestead. That EP never happened but the songs were eventually released on The Best Defense compilation. Now the EP is released as intended pressed at 45RPM for optimum sound… RECOMMENDED.

>> SUNNY WAR – Anarchist Gospel LP (New West) *Ltd. Red Vinyl

Nashville-based songwriter and guitar maestro SUNNY WAR makes her debut on New West with an album that incorporates gospel, blues and lush arpeggiated guitar folk over brash and honest lyrics. Good stuff! RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 1/27/23 New Releases

Fucked Up – One Day


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Reckless Records 1/20/23 New Releases

John Cale – Mercy


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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