Carlton Melton: Out To Sea - 2LP + CD
***RELEASED 29TH JUNE 2015***
“Out To Sea” is the most focused of all Carlton Melton’s recordings to date: the voyage is long; the voyage is joyous.
Leaving their geodesic dome behind, they hitched their magic 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 furore. Phil Manley plays guitar on “Similarities” and synth on “Peaking Duck”
Out To Sea sees Carlton Melton expanding their vision of the psychedelia and free outrock sound of their previous output and push to their furthest horizons using waves of sound - from huge pounding rhythms, outta space riffage, gentle synth wave-riding, pastoral passages, searing shards of molten guitar, smothered ambiance and gentle flowing guitar picking – to lap at the shores of your senses.
The Double LP version is coloured vinyl (one disc is blue/white - the surf and the other is transparent blue - out to sea!!!) packaged in a deluxe gate fold / spot varnished sleeve with a CD copy of the album and a poster..
CD is in a CD digifile package
CARLTON MELTON will be touring the UK / Europe in late September 2015, docking in Liverpool for a slot at the Psych fest..
