Reckless Records 10/14/22 New Releases

Meat Wave – Malign Hex


MAMALEEK – Diner Coffee LP (The Flenser)

Similar to the excellent 2022 CHAT PILE album, this record by MAMALEEK finds the group moving into slightly new territory without straying from their metal roots too much. A bizarre mix of metallic sludge, noise rock & occasional swinging jazz beats drenched in demented distortion.

MEAT WAVE – Malign Hex LP (Swami)

After touring with Reckless faves HOT SNAKES a few years back the great Chicago band MEAT WAVE makes their Swami Records debut with Malign Hex. These guys have been crushing it for a number of years now & they’re one of the tightest bands. Nods at Chicago’s past with hints of TAR & JESUS LIZARD & some nods at their label bosses HOT SNAKES. RECOMMENDED!!

PHOTAY & CARLOS NINO – An Offering LP (International Anthem)

Gorgeous collaboration between drummer & Int’l Anthem mainstay CARLOS NINO and the great ambient composer PHOTAY, blending synths, lite percussive touches and manipulated sounds of strings, horns and voice (also a large list of collaborators). Beautiful pastoral work that stands with the best material in either’s catalog! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
