New Pornographers
Brill Bruisers (ltd. Ed. Splatter Vinyl) (w/ Download)
 cover
Matador
2014 release from this always fantastic super-group made up of AC NEWMAN, NEKO CASE, DAN BEJAR & KATHRYN CALDER. "Brill Bruisers" is an insanely catchy, upbeat celebration of the fighter spirit, much deserved for this group of musicians who have been battling serious losses & personal struggles in the last few years. Here, though, all the weight & introspection of their recent albums (& solo works) is surmounted, producing a truly jubilant work. "Brill Bruisers," like the name suggests, is harkening back to the era of factory-perfected pop-song craftsmanship and as such the aesthetic is closer to their earlier releases -- "Twin Cinema"s magnificent power-pop opus definitely comes to mind. Full of their signature harmonies & pop hooks, this album is a must have for fans of New Pornographers or of beautifully written pop songs in general! Get this!

Merchandise
After The End (ltd. Ed. Green Vinyl) (w/ Download)
 cover
4AD
Florida's MERCHANDISE have come a long way since their debut in 2010. No longer just a "punk band gone pop," the Florida group has completed a progression toward pure, blissfully moody pop music on their 2014 album, "After the End." While not completely abandoning their punk-rock roots (the album was recorded in their living room at home, after all), they certainly have cleaned up & polished all their rough edges. A clear shift toward 80s-inspired pop, "After the End" channels THE CURE, THE SMITHS, DEPECHE MODE & such more than anything Merchandise has created in the past. B E A U T I F U L & R E C O M E N D E D!!

Wolfe, Chelsea
Apokalypsis (2014 Reissue) (orange/black Vinyl)
 cover
Sargent House
Chelsea Wolfe's second full-length offers another assembly of blackened-folk songs but with more in the way of decoration. The gothic and Greek imagery also reflects her epic sound and ritualistic song craft. The arrangements are more elaborate and her themes seem to be fleshed out. She has hit her stride and found direction. Where before she very clearly was in a class of singer that PJ Harvey helped form, she now enjoys skirting Swans-territory. The pace has slowed and these songs slink through the opium den of your imagination.

Wolfe, Chelsea
Grime & The Glow (black/grey Swirl)
 cover
Sargent House
Stating her influences range from Nick Cave and Selda Bagcan, to director Ingmar Bergman, with nods to the dramatic flair of Antony Hegarty, Chelsea Wolfe arrived on our radar around the time of her second album, "Apokalypsis." "The Grime and the Glow" is her debut and it features dramatic instrumental piano, solo acoustic and voice, and lo-fi tracks that could have been demos (see "The Whys" and "Deep Talks"). Wolfe.s penchant for morose music, dark ballads, and atmospheric textures have us curious when she will be scoring films. Vocally, as much as we would like to steer clear of comparing another female singer/guitar player to her, she has the tone of PJ Harvey. Musically, this album shows a burgeoning gothic-folk troubadour who can hold her own on a bill with black metal darlings, Wolves In the Throne Room. Expect plenty more from Chelsea Wolfe and fall into her dark web of mysterious lyrics and music which flourishes even in the absence of light.

Demdike Stare
Testpressing #006 (imp, 2 Trks) Test Pressing #6
 cover
Modern Love
DEMDIKE STARE plows forward with their groundbreaking TEST PRESSING series, this time with some insane and damaged dancefloor edits on the A-side and some experimental metal edits on the flip. These are always satisfying and adventurous and this one is surely no exception. DARING and ESSENTIAL!

Slimkid3 & Dj Nu-mark
Bom Bom Fiya Bouillon (feat. Del & Murs)
 cover
Delicous Vinyl
Two tracks from the full-length collabo between JURASSIC 5's DJ NU-MARK & PHARCYDE's SLIMKID3 (aja SLINKID TRE). The A-side is a Bollywood-influenced jam that also incorporates what we're pretty sure is the sound of a flying car from "The Jetsons." "Bouillon" a straight burner over a funky jazz loop & features MURS & DEL. Very good!

Century Media
2014 reisue of this classic Swedish death metal album from 1994! 20 years old, yeesh! If you don't know GRAVE, they were on par with their peers in DISMEMBER or ENTOMBED but this album is more along the death & roll lines; very groovy & super heavy. Essential!

Cross My Heart Hope To Die
Vita E Morte
 cover
Alpha Pup
High-concept second release from CROSS MY HEART HOPE TO DIE, which features DJ MUGGS (CYPRESS HILL) along- side ANDREW KLINE (from the hardcore band STRIFE), SEAN BONNER & BREVI. There was a whole art installation that went along with this EP, but since you can't see that, know that these four songs are dark, PORTISHEAD- inspired, downtempo jams with BREVI's smoky vocals on top. Totally cool & chill . . .

Trash Talk
No Peace (w/ Flexi)
 cover
Odd Future
TRASH TALK make brilliant, brutal, hardcore music. Not the most conventional punk band ever, the Sacramento band is signed to a hip hop label (OFWGKTA!), & open this set with an ALCHEMIST production, then blast through some two minute missiles of pure hardcore fury, to finish with a track that features KING KRULE. All together clocking in near a crisp half hour. Abrasive youthful, violent, carefree, amazing! *** BONUS FLEXI has an ACTION BRONSON song that's produced by ALCHEMIST! ***

Jar'd Loose
Turns 13 (blue Vinyl)
 cover
Threshold of Pain
This, the second album from Chicago's JAR'D LOOSE is in the Metal section more out of convenience than any- thing else. This four-piece is more along the lines of heavy '90s rock like HELMET or WHITE ZOMBIE, or more curent bands like WHORES or KOWLOON WALLED CITY. Great riffage, super low-end production (mastered by STEVE AUSTIN from TODAY IS THE DAY!) & gasoline vocals all come together for another unique LP from this underrated band. RECOMMENDED!

Carpenter, Bob
Silent Passage (2014 Reissue)
 cover
No Quarter
2014 reissue of this long out of print solo album by Canadian singer-songwriter Bob Carpenter. "Silent Passage" features some of the best session players to come out of LA in the 1970s, plus backing vocals by Emmylou Harris & Anne Murray. It's Carpenter's husky voice & intimate vocals, however, that are the most powerful forces at work here. This is a beautiful album full of melancholy & wisdom and we here at Reckless are immensely happy to have it finally be available again!!
