After years of planning, compiling and remastering, Recycled Plastics is beaming with pride to present JYNX'S GARDEN, a twenty-five track retrospective of music by the inimitable MRS JYNX. Containing almost completely unreleased works, going back to as early as 2004, this collection has been lovingly tidied up and sequenced by The Analog Botanist, emphasizing depth and contour for maximum aural contentment.

 

Musically, Mrs Jynx's work is (perhaps topically described as) the sonic equivalent of those old Lisa Frank binders girls carried to school in the 1980's - bursting with every color you can imagine, psychedelic candy for the senses. Beneath the bright sunrays and endless blue skies, however, are some truly formidable compositional and sound-design talents. Jynx's music is inherently melodic, but there's never a dull moment in her bouncing drum machine rhythms or tight, funky basslines either. You also won't find a musician beholden to using the sounds of "classic" drum machines and synthesizers - rather, Mrs Jynx makes these machines do what she wants them to do, and say what she wants them to say.

 

Many of these tracks have stayed with me since I first met Hannah sometime in 2006, and I've taken them everywhere - when I performed in Germany and raved about her work to people there, and whenever I found a spot for a remix on a Milieu album (or something here at RP), I'd be able to count on her to contribute only the very best work. I was ecstatic when I found out she'd been picked up by Mike Paradinas for releasing at his Planet Mu imprint, and yet - I was always amazed that these songs didn't make the cut on either of her fantastic albums there (2008's The Standoffish Cat and 2010's Shark Carousel). So, the act of assembling such a stellar compilation of my favorite Mrs Jynx music and being able to facilitate its release at my own label, is nothing short of a career highlight for me.

 

I'm certain that this music will bring wide smiles and tickled eardrums to people all over the world, which is exactly what the world could use more of: Happiness. Indeed, that is perhaps the best way to sum up Hannah's sublime creations - Mrs Jynx is happiness, and all you need to do is press play.

Yeah, preordered.  You actually get the whole of disc 1 if you order now.  Really mellow tunes.  Almost MFMesque.

Hey everyone, shipping update!

 

The double disc cases took a lot longer to arrive than expected, so we've only been shipping copies out since about two weeks ago now. On top of that, it seems like the delay has been a blessing in disguise, as the recent hurricanes here have thrown our postal service off track, and shipped stuff that went out late August/early September has been going missing/coming back as of late.

 

Everything has been going out in the order it was received, so your patience is appreciated! If you're outside of the US, you'll know when your stuff is on the way via an automated notification email with a tracking number.

 

P.S. We're currently also going through the Jynx archive to assemble a possible single/EP to release, possibly this Autumn. Stay tuned!
