carlton melton Out to Sea (coloured vinyl double LP + CD, £19.95)label: Agitated
“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 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 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 ambience 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 gatefold / spot varnished sleeve with a CD copy of the album and a poster. We’re gonna need a bigger boat.
