RECKLESS RECORDS 7/8/22 NEW RELEASES
ARP – New Pleasures LP (Mexican Summer)
Alexis Georgopolous returns as ARP, creating lush, subterranean pieces that touch on classical minimalism and the Fourth World excursions of JON HASSELL while maintaining a strong pop sensibility. Beautiful stuff that comes RECOMMENDED.
BLACK MIDI – Hellfire LP/CD (Rough Trade) *Ltd. Red or Black Vinyl w/ limited flexi 7″ while supplies last!
This third record from London’s BLACK MIDI comes hot off the heels of 2021’s Cavalcade, seeing the trio build off of the varied, proggy compositions and mid- 20th century crooner balladry of that previous record while embracing the intensity of their 2019 debut. Hellfire is overflowing with ideas and bursting with energy, evoking both 70s proggy art rock a la KING CRIMSON and the kitchen sink enthusiasm of a MIKE PATTON project. On Rough Trade and RECOMMENDED!
JENNYLEE – Heart Tax LP (Virgin) *Now available at a more affordable domestic price
After a few years off, Jenny Lee Lindberg has made a serious comeback with a new WARPAINT album & her 2nd solo album released almost simultaneously. We were really big fans of her first solo album & this one is also fantastic. The album opens with the amazing track “Stop Speaking” that features guest vocals from Dave Gahan of DEPECHE MODE (what??!!) that sounds like a half-speed TELEVISION track. Minimal almost dubby songs that dip into goth territory at times. REALLY GREAT STUFF!!
LYNYN – Lexicon LP/CD/CS (Sooper)
Lexicon is the 2022 album from Chicago artist Conor Mackey aka LYNYN, also a member of the band MONOBODY. Glitchy but melodic electronic music with nods at APHEX TWIN, SQUAREPUSHER, ARCA etc…
U.S. HIGHBALL – A Parkhead Cross of the Mind LP (Lame-O)
U.S. HIGHBALL is a duo from Glasgow. They’ve made a really unique sounding album that’s sort of an updated take on 80s twee pop/early Rough Trade bands with some quirky drum machine programming & nice vocal harmonies. Imagine TV PERSONALITIES or early FEELIES with modern digital recording techniques.
