Reckless Records 11/11/22 New Releases

Smut – How the Light Felt


>> DREAM UNENDING –  Song of Salvation LP/CD (20 Buck Spin) *Black or Ltd. Color Vinyl

Song of Salvation is the second album from DREAM  UNENDING. The duo features the guitarist Derrick Vella of the fantastic death metal band TOMB MOLD & drummer Justin DeTore. This picks up where they left off on the first one with crystalline clean guitar intro & that grows into a 14+ minute progressive death doom masterpiece. Slow plodding doom mixed with elements of shoegaze, progressive rock with occasional synths & piano, melodic solos & guitars drenched in shimmering chorus. Fans of everything from early 90s Swedish stuff like KATATONIA to OPETH to the great 20 Buck Spin roster in general will want to check this out. RECOMMENDED!

>> BILL NACE – Through a Room LP (Drag City)

The Philadelphia based guitarist Bill Nace is back with another one on Drag City. Using guitar loops & instruments like the hurdy gury & taishōgoto, he’s made some haunting & disorienting guitar soundscapes that remind us of noise greats like DEAD C, the FLYING SAUCER ATTACK “instrumentals”, SUN ARAW etc… RECOMMENDED.

>> RIDE – 4 EPs/ Going Blank Again/ Nowhere LPs (Wichita) *Reissues, sold separately – Ltd. Color Vinyl

Crucial early 90s first wave shoegaze EPS & albums by the legendary RIDE are finally available again!! Along with bands like MY BLOODY VALENTINE, SLOWDIVE, LUSH, CATHERINE WHEEL & SWERVEDRIVER, RIDE blended crushing volume, plenty of distortion & other guitar FX with post BEATLES/KINKS/WHO British invasion influences. These recordings have aged incredibly well & their recent reunion has lead to new albums & successful tours around the world. One of our fave all-time bands at Reckless so we’re chuffed to have these in the racks again!! RECOMMENDED.

>> SMUT – How the Light Felt LP/CD/CS (Bayonet)

How the Light Felt is the 2nd album from the Chicago-based alt rockers SMUT. With shimmering guitars, a driving rhythm section & some lyrics inspired by the tragic suicide of singer Tay Roebuck’s sister, SMUT manage to sound uplifting & somber at the same time. Fans of 90s/00s Brit pop & indie rock like LUSH, THE LAS, VELOCITY GIRL, MAZZY STAR & even THE CRANBERRIES at times, early CAPTURED TRACKS releases etc…will love this. The band also features Reckless employee Andrew Min on guitar. Yeah Andrew! RECOMMENDED.

>> VARIOUS – Life Moves Pretty Fast: The John Hughes Mixtapes LP (Demon) *2LP Black Vinyl or 6LP Red Vinyl

The films of John Hughes are special to people around the world but they are particularly special to Chicago. Many of his now classic films were set or filmed here & the city was always one of the characters as much as Ferris Bueller or Kevin McCallister in Home Alone. Almost as important as the characters in Hughes’ films was the music. Films like Pretty in Pink & The Breakfast Club prominently featured new sounds of upcoming alternative artists like SIMPLE MINDS, OMD, ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN & PSYCHEDELIC FURS & awarded those artists with massive hits. Music was very important to Hughes’ during the filmmaking process & there were also of great songs in the films that didn’t make the proper soundtracks that are now included in these great sets. We’re really proud to be able to carry these essential compilations at Reckless. RECOMMENDED.
