RECKLESS RECORDS 12/16/22 NEW RELEASES
>> JID – The Forever Story 2LP (Dreamville) *One of Reckless’ Best of 2022 finally available on vinyl!
Sophomore full length from Atlanta MC J.I.D. is a statement on family & artistic musicianship. The heart of The Forever Story is J.I.D. & his desire to make something more musical & expansive. There are beat changes on a number of tracks, & new flows & rhyme schemes all over the record. Also worth mentioning is the effort & work shown in Jiddy’s singing voice which really on display here. J.I.D. is one of the most interesting & talented rappers at work today & these are some of his best… RECOMMENDED!
>> JOHN McGUIRE – Pulse Music 2LP (Unseen Worlds)
Late 70’s recordings by John McGuire, a composer that studied with Stockhausen & Penderecki in Europe. Beautiful & rhythmic electronic pulses that vary in speed over the course of the pieces. Imagine Steve Reich’s compositions run through some 70s computer software & you might be able to imagine what this sounds like. RECOMMENDED!
>> MOTRIK – Artificial Head LP (Jealous Butcher) *Ltd. Green Vinyl
Nice physical edition of this 2020 album from Portland neo-psych band MOTRIK. With a name like that you know what sort of rhythms to expect. Think MINAMI DEUTSCH, GOAT, the chiller side of the OSEES and of course NEU. RECOMMENDED!
>> PANDA BEAR – Person Pitch 2LP (Domino) *2022 Reissue
NICE. Domino blesses us with a repress of PANDA BEAR’s magnum opus, still as fresh as ever 15 years later. Here’s what we had to say about it when it came out back in 2007: NOAH LENNOX (of ANIMAL COLLECTIVE fame) returns with his third solo release. This album replaces some of the acoustic elements of previous albums and introduces some samplers & electronics. Full of texture & synthesized sounds this album is a playful addition to LENNOX’s busy arrangements. An album that would surely make BRIAN WILSON proud, as it is non-stop, beautiful vocal harmonies. No lush/orchestral pop fan should be without this one! HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!
>> VARIOUS – Síntesis Moderna: An Alternative Vision of Argentinean Music 3LP (Soundway)
The latest Soundway compilation follows down the path of Doing it in Lagos and Ritmo Fantasia, focusing on synth-pop, boogie and early house from Argentina. Beautiful balearic grooves across the ocean that go in enjoyable directions. Compiled by Ric Piccolo & Ariel Harari and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
