We’ve got a big month planned here at Reckless Yes with four releases from four artists across the four weeks of November 2019. From lo-fi pop, through nu-gaze, to a revisit of lost experimental rock classics, to immersive soundscapes – we’ve got it all.
Get ready to get your ears on these…
Captain Handsome – I Wish I Had A Dog
Out digitally 8 November 2019
The debut single from Captain Handsome – the solo project of Lily from Fightmilk – is the first from a collection of lo-fi sad bangers influenced by Dolly Parton, Mitski, and Kirsty MacColl.
Observations of the minutiae of life turned into sparse yet gigantic pop songs, reflecting those spiralling thoughts of self-doubt and anxiety which haunt you long after whatever incident sparked them has gone.
I Wish I Had A Dog will be out everywhere digitally from 8 November 2020 and will be followed in early 2020 by an EP.
Japan Review – On Auto Now
Out digitally 15 November 2019
The follow up single to the debut EP JUNO, which was released earlier this year, Japan Reviews’ On Auto Now hears the band’s expansive nu-gaze sound developing in ever-more intriguing ways.
With an expanded line-up the band has spent 2019 exploring their sound with the added personnel and this first single

Turkish Delight – Tommy Bell / Howcha Magowcha
Out digitally and on limited edition CD 22 November 2019
Known as a favourite of Thurston Moore for aficionados of ‘90s noise rock might wonder how Boston four-piece Turkish Delight passed them by at the time. Now with the reissue of both their albums – 1996’s Tommy Bell and 1998’s Howcha Magowcha – their experimental rock can finally reach the audience it so deserves.
Described as the missing link between Sonic Youth and Belly across the two albums comes ‘controlled chaos tempered with an uncanny pop sensibility’ (Warped Reality), and a boundless exploration of noise-rock which at once evokes the underground scene in Boston 30 years ago, and sounds as if it comes from some brilliant future beyond the current dystopia.
These album are not yet available for pre-order but keep an eye on social media for news in the next few days.
Peace Tape – Abstract Works
Out digitally 29 November 2019 – a co-release with Komponist
Our first co-release with Last Night From Glasgow imprint is the debut collection from the enigmatic Peace Tape.
Across 17 minutes ‘Abstract Works’ explores both electronic and acoustic methods, manipulating them to create an unsettling, unfamiliar, otherworldly sonic landscape for listeners to journey through.
The pieces vary from melodic ambience to bursts of manipulated noise, each one offering an immersive experience of different emotions through detailed free-form soundscapes. Each of the seven pieces explore sound, emotion and a willing for the listener to immerse themselves within the listening experience.
And that isn’t even us done for the year – we’ve still got a couple more releases to bring you in December but we’ll tell you about those in due course. For now you can find info on our full roster of artists here, and if you’re thinking about sending us music please check our demo info page first.
