RECKLESS RECORDS 11/4/22 NEW RELEASES
>> BOTCH – We Are The Romans 2LP (Sargent House) *Remastered w/ bonus track – Ltd. Blue Vinyl
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!! Reissued once again, this masterpiece of post-hardcore slash metal is back in print! This was BOTCH’s second & final full-length and really raised the bar at the tail end of the 90s along with CAVE IN’s Until Your Heart Stops & DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN’s Calculating Infinity, all of which are on the same label (Hydra Head Records) & came out in 1999. What a year! Anyway, this BOTCH LP is all of the best parts of hardcore & math rock rolled up into one angry ball & still sounds as fresh as it did upon its release. A total, unquestionable, stone classic. RECOMMENDED!
>> EZRA COLLECTIVE – Where I’m Meant To Be 2LP/CD/CS (Partisan) *Black or Ltd. Orange Marble Vinyl Deluxe Edition w/ book – also includes signed print while supplies last!
This second full-length from London’s EZRA COLLECTIVE fits perfectly into the city’s flourishing jazz hybrid sound that blends in hip-hop and Afrobeat a la artists like KOKOROKO and NUBYA GARCIA. Featuring support from SAMPA THE GREAT and the director STEVE McQUEEN, among others. RECOMMENDED!
>> LES RALLIZES DÉNUDÉS – The Oz Tapes 2LP (Temporal Drift) *Ltd. Transparent Blue Vinyl
Oz was a Tokyo upstairs DIY art space that existed for only about a year in 1972/73. The now legendary band from Kyoto LES RALLIZES DÉNUDÉS was one of the house bands at the space & this is the first ever release of recordings that were made there. The tapes were recently discovered after having thought to be lost for almost 50 years. The previously released recordings all vary in sound quality & mostly exist in the lo-fi realm but these recordings sound pretty crisp all things considered. This is actually the first ever officially sanctioned release by the band & family members & there are more releases coming soon. A must have for fans & a great entry point for newcomers & fans of heavy psych ala HIGH RISE, FLOWER TRAVELLIN’ BAND, WHITE OUT etc… RECOMMENDED!
>> MOUNT KIMBIE – MK 3.5: Die Cuts/ City Planning 2LP/2CD (Warp) *Black or Ltd. Clear Vinyl
The latest project from UK duo MOUNT KIMBIE is really two projects, showcasing both sides of the group’s sound. Dom Maker’s Die Cuts is brighter and melody-driven, where as the Kai Campos-made City Planning is more textured and physical. An ambitious project from this duo that rewards deep listens. RECOMMENDED!
>> NINA NASTASIA – Riderless Horse LP (Temporary Residence) *Ltd. Color Vinyl – Now available on LP!
The great Nina Nastasia returns after a 12 year hiatus & we’re so happy she’s back. This is her first proper solo album & it deals with her grieving the suicide of her former partner, mental health issues & the ups & downs that we all have to deal with as adults sooner or later. Despite the heavy themes, the songs do have uplifting moments & a positive outlook or at least a resolve about the future. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
>> SPOON & ADRIAN SHERWOOD – Lucifer on the Moon: Spoon vs. On-U Sound LP (Matador)
Lucifer on the Moon is a companion album to SPOON’s 2022 LP Lucifer on the Sofa, a complete album rework courtesy of UK dub legend ADRIAN SHERWOOD. Joined with additional session work from On-U in-house players, Sherwood’s studio magic transforms Lucifer on the Sofa into a lush, extraterrestrial soundscape. RECOMMENDED!
