Reckless Records 9/8/23 New Releases

Deeper – Careful


>> ANJIMILE – The King LP (4AD) *Ltd. Yellow Vinyl

Sophomore record from Durham, NC’s ANJIMILE CHITHAMBO, shifting to darker territory from his debut to focus on his experience as a Black trans person in America with an ultimate feeling of uplift, delivered mostly in a stark combo of acoustic guitar and voice. RECOMMENDED!

>> BAR ITALIA – Tracey Denim LP (Matador) *Early 2023 album now available on vinyl

This Matador debut from London’s BAR ITALIA evokes the 90s underground in its shoegaze-y moodiness, snarling guitar fuzz choruses and cut-and-paste sample work, all drenched in atmospheric reverb. Like hearing THE STONE ROSES in the murky shadows of SLOWDIVE or BLONDE REDHEAD. Superb stuff that comes RECOMMENDED.

>> COURTNEY BARNETT – End of the Day LP (Mom + Pop) *Milky Clear Vinyl – Music from the 2021 Courtney Barnett documentary Anonymous Club

This soundtrack is an atypical release for BARNETT, comprised of seventeen short, improvised instrumentals that make use of empty space and ambient textures from her guitar. Certainly in the tradition of NEIL YOUNG’s Dead Man score, but with a lighter touch closer to RYLEY WALKER and SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE. RECOMMENDED!

>> THE CARETAKER – Persistent Repition of Phrases LP (History Always Favours The Winners) *2023 Reissue

THE CARETAKER aka JAMES KIRBY is an exquisite, ghostly journey, transporting the listener to another time, another place, another dream via old vinyl ala PHILLIP JECK. This album is truly remarkable and evokes an old-world nostalgia like few other modern releases. Astonishing and RECOMMENDED.

>> DEEPER – Careful! LP/CD/CS (Sub Pop) *Loser Edition Color Vinyl w/ poster & sticker while supplies last ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

Chicago’s own DEEPER drop their third LP and first on the mighty Sub Pop. This time out they brighten their post-punk/darkwave stylings with swaths of new wave color & art-pop drama a la prime PSYCHEDELIC FURS, TELEVISION, and THE CARS. If they continue down this path they might just have a Disintegration or Violator -level crossover down the line. You can take that to the bank. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> ALABASTER DePLUME – Come With Fierce Grace LP/CD (International Anthem)

After this third album in four years on Int’l Anthem, it can be safe to describe ALABASTER DePLUME’s output as “consistently excellent”. The music on Come With Fierce Grace showcases the best of DePLUME’s minimal third stream jazz composition, accentuated with vocal mantra melodies that embrace the sounds of gospel and folk, particularly in the folk-based classical music of artists ranging from MOONDOG to BELA BARTÓK. Don’t sleep on this one! RECOMMENDED.

>> TIM KINSELLA & JENNY PULSE – Giddy Skelter LP/CD (Kill Rock Stars) *Yellow Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

This 2023 album from these longtime collaborators has elements of feedback-sheet shoegaze, psych drone and dubby, lo-fi rock, tied together with ethereal vocals mostly led by PULSE. Think some SPACEMEN 3, some LUSH, a touch of GBV. RECOMMENDED!

>> TONY PRICE – Hit Piece LP (Telephone Explosion)

Canadian producer TONY PRICE follows up his L.I.E.S. release IBM Contra with a sultrier release that gets into deep-fried disco-house and 80s electro-synth pop. Ever want to feel like you’re the protagonist of an 80s Michael Mann film? Here’s your soundtrack. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 9/1/23 New Releases

Slowdive – everything is alive


>> ZACH BRYAN – Summertime Blues LP (Warner) *2022 album finally available on LP! Self-titled album coming soon…

Stop-gap EP between albums from man of the hour ZACH BRYAN. We hear obvious country touchstones like TOWNES and PRINE (as well as Zach’s peers JASON ISBELL and TYLER CHILDERS), but there’s also a little BRUCE, some WESTERBERG, and at key moments even some golden age of confessional emo influence a la BRIGHT EYES and DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL. We’re really looking forward to whatever’s coming down the pike next for this dude… RECOMMENDED!

>> EARL SWEATSHIRT – Sick! LP (Warner) *Black or Indie Exclusive Light Blue Vinyl – Early 2022 album finally available on LP!

EARL continues his march towards Legend status with this 2022 masterpiece. The production (much of it handled by Earl himself with key contributions from BLACK NOI$E, THE ALCHEMIST and others) is still dense & unpredictable as all hell, and yet Earl’s barbs are more cutting than ever, slicing like a hammer through the crackle & pop. This might be the coldest he’s ever sounded on record, with a laser-focused clarity maybe brought on by age, loss, getting through the pandemic by the skin of his teeth, or all of the above. We’ve been there. We get it… and we say this is HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> HARUOMI HOSONO – N.D.E. LP (Rush Hour) *Import, Reissue – Now in stock!

The first ever vinyl reissue for Haruomi Hosono’s 1995 album N.D.E. is here courtesy of Rush Hour. Featuring collaborators such as YASUAKI SHIMIZU, BILL LASWELL & house legend FRANCOIS K, this album is a heady mix of techno, dub & VERY forward thinking electronic music. In many ways this reminds us of MANUEL GÖTTSCHING’s E2-E4 with Hosono’s attention to detail & crisp & clean production aesthetic. HEADPHONES RECOMMENDED.

>> HORRENDOUS – Ontogolical Mysterium LP/CD/CS (Season of Mist) *Black or Ltd. Red Vinyl

The Philadelphia band HORRENDOUS returns with their 5th album & it’s not too often a band makes such a creative leap forward this deep into their discography. This album is packed with ideas & top-notch playing & they effortlessly experiment with non-death metal genres throughout the entire record. The closest comparison we can think of is BLOOD INCANTATION’s Hidden History of the Human Race but this album is more progressive & even veers into IRON MAIDEN & RUSH territory, not kidding. This is easily one of our favorite records or 2023. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> JEFF ROSENSTOCK – Hellmode LP/CD/CS (Polyvinyl) *Ltd. Color Vinyl

Power-pop-punk (and -ska!) savant JEFF ROSENSTOCK drops another banger, his third on Polyvinyl. Never fear – Jeff’s still raging against the dying of the light with his high-BPM anthems, but those numbers are tempered this time by heaping teaspoons of acoustic guitar and even some spare folk songs. To put it to you in punk parlance – Hellmode is Jeff’s Nimrod. Real good stuff as always. RECOMMENDED!

>> SLOWDIVE – everything is alive LP/CD (Dead Oceans) *Black or Ltd. Clear Vinyl

Everything Is Alive is the sophomore album from SLOWDIVE’s incredibly successful 2nd phase. Their 2017 comeback was more present & less “shoegazey” than their original albums & this one follows in those footsteps though they’ve added more synth textures & acoustic guitars this time around. Neil Halstead & Rachel Goswell share vocal duties almost equally & as always they compliment each other perfectly. Overall we’d say this album is more quiet & dreamy than the last one & there’s even a MOGWAI-esque instrumental boldly placed 2nd in the album sequence. SLOWDIVE
is an all-time Reckless fave so we’re quite excited about this one. RECOMMENDED!

>> SPEEDY ORTIZ – Rabbit Rabbit LP/CD/CS (Wax Nine) *Ltd. Tri-Color Vinyl w/ air freshener while supplies last

The fourth record for Sadie Dupuis & co is their first in over five years, but with Dupuis staying busy on side projects, the resumption of SPEEDY ORTIZ goes on without a hitch. Punchy, glimmering power pop with its share of bubblegum melodies and earworm guitar hooks. RECOMMENDED!

>> WILCO – Sky Blue Sky 2LP (Nonesuch) *Ltd. Sky Blue Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

Shaking off the more experimental vibe WILCO adapted on YHF and A Ghost Is Born, these Chicago natives return to their country roots with Sky Blue Sky. A twangy, jammy effort that really showcases the band’s ability to write catchy (but unconventional) pop tunes. Vintage Tweedy & Co! ** Limited 2023 reissue pressed on “Sky Blue” vinyl. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 8/25/23 New Releases

Ratboys – The Window


>> JAIMIE BRANCH – Fly Or Die Fly Or Die Fly Or Die ((world war)) LP/CD (International Anthem) *Black or Ltd. Green Vinyl

The final transmission from the late, great trumpeter JAIMIE BRANCH was nearly completed a month before she passed away during the summer of 2022. On this Fly or Die edition, BRANCH sought to explore extended song templates with more vocals and a heavier, denser sound palate. And yet with Fly or Die x3, the result isn’t so much cacophony as it is deep esoteric harmony, meshing folk balladry, Latin jazz, psychedelic electronics and classical minimalism into a beautiful, organic whole. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> HUERCO S. – Colonial Patterns 2LP (Software) *10th Anniversary – Bone Vinyl

Tenth anniversary of this seminal ambient house album from producer HUERCO S., using dark, hypnotic rhythms and obscure musicality to create a sense of dissonant unrest, inspired in many ways by the overcast murk of BURIAL and the fourth world kosmiche of JON HASSELL. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> BUCK MEEK – Haunted Mountain LP/CD (4AD) *Black or Indie Exclusive Clear Green Vinyl

Third solo album from BIG THIEF guitarist BUCK MEEK plumbs earnest emotions with a playful, daydreamlike whimsy, touching on the country-leaning side of his band that also often sounds like a happier version of JASON MOLINA. Good stuff! RECOMMENDED!

>> RATBOYS – The Window CD/CS (Top Shelf) *Vinyl delayed but coming soon! ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

We got an instant classic for you right here from Chicago’s own RATBOYS. Made in collaboration with producer CHRIS WALLA (ex- DEATH CAB), The Window has the same everything-but-the-kitchen-sink-just-kidding-throw-that-in-too mentality of WILCO’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot – polished indie rock, shaggy Americana, and fuzzy power pop with lots of space for experimentation & more than a few badass guitar solos. It’s our city’s answer to the “post-country”(horseshoe gaze?) boom period we’re fortunate to be in the middle of with great records just in the past year from WEDNESDAY, MJ LENDERMAN, and FLORRY. We’re really proud of this one – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 8/18/23 New Releases

Mikaela Davis – And Southern Star


>> MIKAELA DAVIS – And Southern Star LP (Kill Rock Stars) *Ltd. Wavy Rose Vinyl – Record signing & in-store performance 8/20 2PM @ Belmont!

Sophomore record from folk singer and harpist MIKAELA DAVIS settles into a lovely blend of 60s inspired pop psychedelia and gentle, pedal-steel inflected country. Great stuff on Kill Rock Stars! RECOMMENDED.

>> DINERS – Domino LP (Bar/None)

Blue Broderick drops another slab of winning power-pop under the DINERS banner with Domino, her first LP on Bar/None. Simple-but-effective lyrics, some real good guitar playing, and total nonstop hooks that make for a great throwback to the golden era of TWILLEY, EMITT RHODES, and classic Stiff Records fare like KIRSTY MacCOLL & WRECKLESS ERIC. There’s a thread of wistful melancholy running through these songs too that’ll serve us all well as a soundtrack to temps dropping and leaves falling. Fantastic stuff – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> GIRL RAY – Prestige LP (Moshi Moshi) *Ltd. “Mimosa Yellow” Color Vinyl

Remember the summer of 2020, when great dance records like DUA LIPA’s Future Nostalgia and JESSIE WARE’s What’s Your Pleasure? were dropping at a steady clip and we were all chomping at the bit to get back out and party a bit even though it wasn’t quite safe yet? UK band GIRL RAY remember those dark days well, and it’s served as the inspiration for their super fun new LP Prestige. Glammy disco with hi-NRG and new wave influences, bright synths, canny strings, and droll vox. Fans of HAIM, HOT CHIP, and Random Access Memories -era DAFT PUNK will absolutely love this. RECOMMENDED!

>> LOVELY LITTLE GIRLS – Effusive Supreme LP (Skin Graft) *Random Color Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

First album since 2016 for this collective of Chicago weirdos, featuring members of CHEER-ACCIDENT and THE FLYING LUTTENBACHERS. LLG explores similar avant-garde territory, but with a more theatrical delivery and prog-y approach to melody and arrangement. RECOMMENDED!

>> NONDI_ – Flood City Tracks LP (Planet Mu) *Early 2023 album now available – Ltd. Beige Vinyl

Tatiana Triplin runs the label HRR and releases dance music under the moniker NONDI_, channeling Chicago footwork, Detroit techno and European breakcore, all rendered through gauzy, impressionistic tones that evoke genres of solitude like vaporwave. Excellent home listening material! RECOMMENDED!

Bonnie “Prince” Billy – Keeping Secrets Will Destroy You


>> BONNIE “PRINCE” BILLY – Keeping Secrets Will Destroy You LP/CD/CS (Drag City) *w/ bonus flexi disc & poster available while supplies last

After a few years of making music in collaboration with old buddies BILL CALLAHAN and MATT SWEENEY (and new buddy MDOU MOCTAR), WILL OLDHAM returns again to the graceful solitude of his long-running BONNIE “PRINCE” BILLY project. His craggy voice & whimsical lyrics are first rate as always, wrapped up tightly in spare Americana & chamber pop stylings that suit him like a homespun knit sweater. He’s backed here by a disarmingly skilled group of musicians, with strings and sax and the gorgeous harmonies of vocalist Dane Waters, who give intention to every single note in service of Oldham’s dizzying melodies. We’re already looking forward to returning to this one over and over again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

>> GRAIN – We’ll Hide Away: Complete Recordings 1993-1995 LP (Solid Brass) *Cloudy Clear Vinyl

The complete works of Cleveland’s GRAIN are together on one LP. Perfect blend of catchy melodies, dissonant guitar, pummeling breakdowns and Midwest emotiveness. RECOMMENDED!

>> THE HIVES – The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons LP (Disque Hives) *Black or Indie Exclusive Cream Vinyl

You’d be forgiven for thinking maybe you threw on the new QOTSA by mistake when the opening riff on THE HIVES’ first album in over a decade comes roaring out of your speakers. Give or take a few outliers (and these squirrelly Swedes always allow for at least a few on every LP), these are some of the heaviest & hardest tracks they’ve ever cut, drawing as much from prime AC/DC and KISS as they do from thee typical STONES ‘n’ STOOGES well. Insanely fun (and insane) rock music – RECOMMENDED!

>> LUSH – Lovelife/ Split/ Spooky LPs (4AD) *2023 Remasters, sold separately – Ltd. Clear Vinyl

Gorgeous remasters of these LPs from UK dream pop/ shoegaze titans LUSH, available on wax for the first time since the 90s. ESSENTIAL and RECOMMENDED!

>> RUTH MASCELLI – Non-Stop Healing Frequency LP (Disciples)

Second solo record from SPECIAL INTEREST member RUTH MASCELLI is a zag from their sultry debut, stringing up eleven electric mood pieces that range from ambient textures to cosmic disco to stark ballads that feature their own voice. With a lovely JUDEE SILL cover (imagine finding that in the dance section!). RECOMMENDED!

The soundtrack to the 2023 Best Picture (and maybe one of the best movies ever made, period? Let’s talk about it…) Everything Everywhere All at Once is finally available on vinyl. SON LUX’s original score is just as ambitious & creative as the flick, with contributions from MITSKI, DAVID BYRNE, MOSES SUMNEY, and the voice of Raccacoonie himself, RANDY NEWMAN. There’s also some gorgeous flute compliments of none other than ANDRÉ BENJAMIN aka Benjamin André aka 3 Stacks aka ANDRE 3000. Of course this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 7/28/23 New Releases

Aphex Twin – Blackbox Life Recorder 21f/ In a Room7 F760


>> APHEX TWIN – Blackbox Life Recorder 21f/ In a Room7 F760 12″ (Warp)

Hard to believe it’s been five years since we last heard from Richard D. James aka APHEX TWIN, but Blackbox Life… picks up right where Collapse left off, with dry, bouncing analog-ish drum textures and playful pacing counter-balancing dark, ruminative synth tones. There are also nods to his early days, with rave-y stabs and burbling acid basslines. Classic and yet also entirely new stuff from RDJ. OBVIOUSLY RECOMMENDED!

>> THE CLIENTELE – I Am Not There Anymore 2LP/CD (Merge) *Black or “Peak Vinyl” Edition Black-in-Red Vinyl

2023 record from Reckless faves THE CLIENTELE messes a bit with the formula, eschewing their signature drum/bass/jangle for breakbeats, tape machine samples & hybrid textures that incorporate strings, organ, horns
and Mellotron. It’s not a complete change – there’s plenty of 60s inspired earworm pop tunes, and Alasdair MacLean’s voice is recognizably hazy & breathy – but the new sonic palette allows the hour-plus length to breeze by. Great stuff yet again. RECOMMENDED!

>> BETHANY COSENTINO – Natural Disaster LP/CD (Concord) *Black or Indie Exclusive “Dreamsicle” Vinyl

Natural Disaster is the first-ever solo record from BETHANY COSENTINO (dropping while BEST COAST are on hiatus). BC’s unabashed love for the pop craftsmanship of FLEETWOOD MAC and THE GO-GOs has always been hard to hide under even the thickest layers of fuzz, but she takes it one step further here with the glossy, sun-soaked sheen of peak SHERYL CROW, SHANIA TWAIN, MICHELLE BRANCH, and that self-titled LIZ PHAIR that keeps sounding better and better as time goes on. Some of these tunes are already destined to become “Indie Rock Summer Jam” playlist staples. Now we just need that Bobb Bruno black metal record… This is RECOMMENDED!

>> DAMON LOCKS & ROB MAZUREK – New Future City Radio LP/CD (International Anthem) ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

While DAMON LOCKS & ROB MAZUREK have collaborated in the past with EXPLODING STAR ORCHESTRA, this marks the first pure duo record for the two. The 18 tracks on New Future City Radio function together as a mixtape imagining a future utopian pirate radio program that blends improvisational jazz, hip-hop, electric beats & psychedelia with ruminations on the future of community, all tied together with LOCKS’ retrofuturist voiceover. Excellent and RECOMMENDED!

>> MID-AIR THIEF – Gongjoong Doduk LP (Top Shelf) *Reissue – Orange & Pink Glow Vinyl

First physical version of this 2016 album from South Korean psych experimentalists MID-AIR THIEF. There’s a stronger folk influence to this, but with some dubby electronics that helps these chameleonic songs shift from one style to another with grace. Fans of FISHMANS, THE FLAMING LIPS, or some of the collage-like records by THE BOOKS will find a ton of stuff to love here. An excellent record that we’re happy to have tangibly in stock. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 7/21/23 New Releases

Blur – The Ballad of Darren


>> BLUR – The Ballad of Darren LP/CD (Parlophone) *Black or Ltd. Blue Vinyl

For anybody still pining for the heyday of Britpop, it’s gotta be a thrill to see the classic BLUR logo on a new LP in 2023. We’re excited to say this one lives up to that promise & then some. Dropping 8 years after their comeback The Magic Whip (which was v. good but mostly just had a “Thanks for your patience, here’s more Blur” vibe), The Ballad of Darren finds the lads sounding more charged since they have since pre-GORILLAZ. The uptempo numbers have a post-punk energy that suggests inspo from recent contemporaries like IDLES & FONTAINES DC, and the more mellow cuts are elegiac & wistful (a la recent ARCTIC MONKEYS), making the whole affair feel like a graceful comedown from those glory days as they again carve out a space for themselves in today’s scene. You can finally pull that thrashed copy Parklife from your disc-changer – this’ll do the trick just fine. RECOMMENDED!

>> CV VISION – Im Tal der Stutzer LP (Bureau B)

Psychedelic prog, acid folk, washed-out pop & warped feudal weirdness from Dennis Schulze’s CV VISION project. Inspired by medieval themes & fuzzed out prog riffs. Fans of BO HANSSON, SOFT MACHINE & even GOBLIN soundtracks will love! RECOMMENDED!

>> KODE9 & BURIAL – Infirmary/ Unknown Summer 12″ (fabric)

Lovely two tracker split from KODE9 and BURIAL, who team up five years after their fantastic FABRICLIVE 100 mix LP. Much more energetic & uptempo compared to BURIAL’s more recent output. RECOMMENDED!

>> MADMADMAD – Behavioural Sink Delirium LP (Bad Vibrations) *180g – Ltd. Red Vinyl

Weirdo, acid-fried disco punk from this London group that was recently featured on the Soul Jazz comp Two Synths, a Guitar (And) a Drum Machine. Think ADD N TO (X), BLACK DICE. RECOMMENDED (if you can forgive the song title “Totes Amazeballs”).

>> STRANGE RANGER – Pure Music LP/CD (Fire Talk) *Black or Indie Exclusive Transparent Sea Glass Vinyl

Sample-heavy fourth album from New York outfit STRANGE RANGER, steeping themselves in trip-hop, glitch, IDM and electro-R&B in a way that feels less like throwing ideas at the wall and more of a unified sound. Great stuff on Fire Talk. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 7/14/23 New Releases

Clark – Sus Dog


>> SAM BURTON – Dear Departed LP/CD (Partisan) *Black or Ltd. White Vinyl

LA’s SAM BURTON makes gentle, sun-kissed folk that recalls early TIM BUCKLEY, JOHN DENVER and TOWNES VAN ZANDT as well as contemporaries like CUT WORMS. Mellow and melody-forward, with some beautiful string texture and choral backing vocals. RECOMMENDED!

>> CLARK – Sus Dog 2LP/CD (Throttle) *Executive produced by THOM YORKE

UK producer Chris Clark has long been a master of the spectrum of sound, but in the past he’s used vocals only sparingly as just another effect in the mix. On Sus Dog, Clark sings on nearly every track, his reedy falsetto lending warmth & vulnerability to even the more menacing tracks. We apparently have THOM YORKE to thank for this, as he encouraged Clark to push his boundaries here & even gave him some vocal coaching – shut your eyes and you’ll be convinced you’re listening to a great lost RADIOHEAD LP even before Thom shows up near the end. Reckless fave ANIKA also guests. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> NATURAL WONDER BEAUTY CONCEPT – Natural Wonder Beauty Concept LP (Mexican Summer)

Heavenly collaboration between ambient pop producer ANA ROXANNE and abstract dance innovator DJ PYTHON, melding PYTHON’s brittle, thorny excursions into IDM, trip-hop and reggaeton with ROXANNE’s lush, textured chords and ethereal voice. The result lands somewhere between YAEJI’s kitchen-sink expressionism, the mutant tresillo beat of ARCA and the softer electronic R&B of TIRZAH and ERIKA de CASIER. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> RUSSIAN CIRCLES – Station LP (Sargent House) *15th Anniversary – Ltd. Blue Vinyl ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

“Chicago’s own RUSSIAN CIRCLES serve up their sophomore release to ours and the music loving public’s excitement. Station starts off harmless enough, with swelling and cinematic arrangements comprised mostly of guitars and minimal drumming. The second track, however commences into familiar territory – complex drumming, ominous bass, and heavy guitar riffage. Instrumental, as usual, the guys in RUSSIAN CIRCLES pick up right where they left off with 2006’s Enter, creating an eerie atmospheric collection of songs sure to please. Fans of the MARS VOLTA, PELICAN, or MONO will feel right at home with Station.” 15th anniversary edition available on independent record store exclusive transparent blue vinyl. RECOMMENDED!

>> THE YORUBA SINGERS – Ojinga’s Own LP (Soundway) *1974 album reissued on vinyl for the first time

Soundway gifts us this beautiful remaster of the debut album from Guyanese Afro-folk band THE YORUBA SINGERS. Mixing traditional folk styles with American blues and soul, all shot through with biting social commentary. RECOMMENDED!

Reckless Records 7/7/23 New Releases

Lifeguard – Crowd Can Talk/ Dressed In Trenches


>> TONY ALLEN & ADRIAN YOUNGE – Jazz Is Dead 18: Tony Allen LP (Jazz Is Dead)

The 18th release in the Jazz is Dead series focuses on some increbile sessions featuring the late, legendary Afrobeat drummer TONY ALLEN. The unmistakable patterns of ALLEN’s drumming had been used quite well working with techno pioneer JEFF MILLS, but these sessions are far less electronic, emphasizing the lush, big-band brass and polyrhythmic funk of FELA KUTI and AFRICA 70. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

>> BEVERLY GLENN-COPELAND – Beverly Copeland LP (Transgressive) *Reissue

Originally released in 1970 in a pressing of just 250 copies that were distributed to CBC radio, this debut album by Beverly Glenn-Copeland (then Beverly Copeland) is finally available again. With some similarities to fellow Canadian Joni Mitchell & other folkies like Odetta & Buffy Sainte-Marie, Copeland’s debut is remarkably strong & still sounds unique & interesting so many years later. RECOMMENDED!

>> PJ HARVEY – I Inside The Old Year Dying LP/CD (Partisan)

Tenth studio album for Peej (and first in seven years) reunites her with long-time collaborators JOHN PARISH and FLOOD for a moody, immersive record with prickly folk arrangments, lush field recordings, meandering melodies and lyrics filled with obscure dialects and turns of phrase. The result is a quintessentially “English” album, moored in narrative concept the same way as RICHARD DAWSON but with the sonic sensibilites of JOSEPHINE FOSTER and a Byron/Keats-esque sense of poetry. RECOMMENDED!

>> LIFEGUARD – Crowd Can Talk/ Dressed in Trenches 12″/CD (Matador) *Standard version or in-store exclusive Black & White alternate cover available ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

We’re incredibly stoked for the Matador debut of local heatseekers LIFEGUARD, combining 2022’s EP Crowd Can Talk with 5 new cuts on the B side titled Dressed in Trenches. Shades of DINOSAUR JR., PAVEMENT, a bit of JAY REATARD. Be wise and keep your eyes peeled for more. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
