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.
