Where This Leads by Carlton Melton

Carlton Melton

Where This Leads
Agitated

"Nestled deep in the forests of Mendocino County in Northern California, huddled under the protective shade of towering redwoods and within earshot of frothy waves crashing against the Pacific coastline, squats a geodesic dome that has served as crucible for the experimental genius of Carlton Melton.?! Nature and Man operate under different logics.?! But here, Carlton Melton wholly entrusts this idyllic environment with the task of inspiring and guiding their musical improvisations.   The Dome has been the ideal setting to facilitate their creativity.?! Without forcing a specific dynamic or theme, the band inhabits its womb-like confines to improvise, explore, dream.?! Their music draws on psychedelia, stoner metal, krautrock, and ambient atmospherics to convey, above all else, a mood.   A prickly guitar melody will float lazily, a wall of dissonant feedback will resolve into a hypnotic drone, or a colossal riff will exhume the soul of Jimi Hendrix.?!

This is the new Carlton Melton album, the first full length release since 2015’s widely-lauded Out To Sea, itself a languid drifting of drones and psychedically-enhanced riffmongering.?! Admittedly, there has been some long EP releases since: Hidden Lights in 2017 (featuring the immeasurable drone-sike-float on “Rememory”) and Aground in 2016 (a companion, the Desert Island weather beaten psych-flow follow up to Out To Sea).?! Now its time to soak up Mind Minerals. This album finds the band in fine fettle: all the songs were recorded and engineered at El Studio in San Francisco by Phil Manley over two days (except “Untimely”), with the studio suiting them—a logical progression from previous weekend recordings out at the Dome.?! Under Manly’s watchful ear / eye, the band have created a futurescape soundtrack, a 3001 Space Odyssey.?!

San Francisco trip-makers supreme Carlton Melton return with a new twenty-five minute-plus three-track 12- inch EP for Agitated Records, their first release since the widely received double-album Out To Sea in 2015 and accompanying 2016 RSD Aground 12-inch. Hidden Lights is the first missive from recent recordings undertaken once again at El Studio with the watchful engineering and collaborative help of Phil Manley (Trans AM / Lifecoach / Fucking Champs), who throws in slinky guitar moves that help make the Carlton Melton Magick Karpet soar.?! John McBain (Evil Acidhead / Monster Magnet / Wellwater Conspiracy) also guests on guitar, and once again has mastered their sike-adelic-drone to perfection.?! Take a trip to the hidden lights, immerse yourself….?!

Following up 2015’s well-received opus Out to Sea, Carlton Melton runs Aground—five slabs of magick-karpet-wreck’d psychedelic morass.?! The raft has beached and you have to get your ears on and wander the deserted shores of this desolate isle.?! Aim for the high ground, build a fire, look to the horizons and let it all flow.?!  Recorded and engineered by Phil Manly at Lucky Cat Studios, these tracks were from the same sessions that spawned Out to Sea; there’s a natural cohesion that makes the trip worth taking.?! Aground was mastered at 45 RPM and pressed on green vinyl in a limited edition of 600 copies..?!

The voyage is long, the voyage is joyous.?! Out to Sea is the most focused of all Carlton Melton’s recordings to date.?! Leaving their geodesic dome behind, they hitched their magick karpet to San Francisco’s El Studio for a fried weekend in July 2014 with The Fucking Champs / Trans Am’s Phil Manley at the production helm (and occasionally contributing to the furor—Manley plays guitar on “Similarities” and synth on “Peaking Duck”). Out to Sea sees Carlton Melton expand the psychedelia and free outrock sound of their previous output to its furthest horizons.?! Huge rhythms, outta space riffage, sparkling synths, pastoral passages, searing shards of molten guitar, smothered ambience and gentle guitar-picking all flow together into waves of sound to lap at the shores of your senses. We’re gonna need a bigger boat.  “Radiant” —Mojo  “Intense, sweet, headnodding psych” —Uncut.?!

Andy Duvall, Rich Millman, Clint Golden and (introducing) John McBain on Echoplex (and mastering duties once more!) are Carlton Melton, Agitated Records’ standard bearers, their freak flag wavers. The travelers have returned with Always Even, their fourth album, recorded once again in a geodesic dome in the winter of 2012-13.?! Strap in, fly on—but do not be fooled by the gentle ease of opening track “Slow Wake.” It’s the calm before the psych-storm, a balm for one’s ears to prepare body and mind for the synth-riff-laden, psych-guitar-knockout blastings to come.?! Much like “Space Treader” on last year’s Photos of Photos, “Keeping On” launches into a unmapped zones, only to return to earth with the eased-back dome-drone of “Spider Web.” The trip continues with the furious, kraut-influenced “Sarsen,” a track that could soundtrack an entire flight to the Moon and back—not to mention fuel the rocket ship with its ampheto-cranked psych chug.?!

***CARLTON MELTON have been releasing some incredible improvised psychedelic jams over the last few years, released through their own Mid To Late label and the  UK label Agitated.?! So after hanging out with these guys at their show here and being absolutely blown away, we're pleased to be releasing this prelude to their forthcoming new LP for Agitated later this year.?! This new four track 30+ minute 12" EP is dripping with heavy riffs, thunderous drums, gurgling synth psychedelia, and mind altering bass.?! The Carlton Melton sound lies between drone and space rock entwined with loose jam band improvisation, and they blend it perfectly with a touch of baked stoner rock.?! The record features special guests BRIAN MCDOUGALL and JOHN MCBAIN (MONTSTER MAGNET).?! McBain also mastered the audio.?! Limited to 600 copies pressed on 180 gram virgin vinyl.?! UK import..?!

On their third album, Carlton Melton elevates their organic, improvised psych-jams to the sonic plane befitting the geodesic dome in which it was recorded, pulverizing all psychedelic hypno-drone that has come before.?!  Mastered by John McBain (Monster Magnet, Wellwater Conspiracy), Photos of Photos is a testament to Carlton Melton’s finely honed craft—from the lush, pastoral sonics of “Nor’ Easter” and the album’s title track to the smoldering, gargantuan riffs of “Space Treader” and the synth drones and spare rhythms of LP closer “Wingspan.” The four-piece melds what might otherwise be an indecipherable psychedelic mess into something coherent, uncompromising and loud: Melton’s Magick Karpet Ride. Two bonus tracks (available on the standard CD and download versions, as well as a limited two-disc vinyl edition) feature McBain on guitar / synth / echoplex.?!

***“San Francisco’s CARLTON MELTON is centered around former ZEN GUERILLA’s ANDY DUVALL (Guitar/Drums) and RICH MILLMAN (Guitar/Synths).?! They recorded their psychedelic hypno-drone rock in a genuine geodesic dome, and have created an insane psychedelic squall utilizing alien guitar swells, freaked out tribal rhythms and strange loping pulsations.?! The heavy vibrations of Can and Pink Floyd suffuse Carlton Melton‘s work, and they use a bed of classic psychedelic rock as means for the guitars and organ to soar righteously through the stratosphere, before descending into trance-inducing drones which burrow deep into the earth...”—Roadburn Festival 2011.?!
