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!
