Reckless Records 9/2/22 New Releases

Stereolab – Pulse of the Early Brain: Switched On Vol. 5


CODEINE – Dessau LP (Numero Group) *Black or Ltd. “Barely Green” Vinyl

Way back in 1992, the slowcore legends CODEINE went into the studio to record their 2nd album. For a number of reasons the sessions were abandoned & the drummer Chris Brokaw quit the band. The group would eventually get a new drummer & re-record the songs that were released as their final album, the fantastic The White Birch. These versions made at Harold Dessau Recording have been remastered & released for this first time via Numero Group. They’re pretty similar to the album versions but it’s definitely cool to hear the takes with the original line-up. RECOMMENDED!

MJ LENDERMAN – Boat Songs LP (Dear Life)

WEDNESDAY guitarist MJ LENDERMAN also works as a solo singer-songwriter, crafting humorous and disarming country rock tunes that find a way to strike a balance somewhere halfway between shambolic and polished. A bit of indie fuzz of the DINOSAUR JR. and BUILT TO SPILL persuasion, as well as some country-fried funk in the LITTLE FEAT mold, all wrapped up in LENDERMAN’s touching, JASON MOLINA-esque ear for melody & lyrics. For fans of the above mentioned bands, as well as good songwriting in general, this comes RECOMMENDED.

JOHN ONDOLO – Hypnotic Guitar of John Ondolo LP (Mississippi)

Rare 50s & 60s 78 recordings collected for the first time by the East African guitarist & singer John Ondolo. Using open tunings, Ondolo had a unique playing style & some of the songs with flute & percussion accompaniment have a really interesting sound. RECOMMENDED!

STEREOLAB – Pulse of the Early Brain: Switched On Vol. 5 LP/CD (Warp) *Available as a 2CD set or a 3LP set including a limited number of copies with a mirrorboard sleeve for the same price while supplies last!

The fifth volume of STEREOLAB’s superb Switched On series comes out right ahead of their North American tour, and includes rare & live tracks such as a remix from AUTECHRE, collaborations with NURSE WITH WOUND and music used to accompany sculptures by Charles Long. Absolutely unmissable! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
