Album Review

Carlton Melton/Microwavelengths

Carlton Melton (Andy Duvall, Rich Millman, and Clint Golden) are great friends of KFJC and we are great friends of theirs. Just drop the needle on this new EP and you will know why. Carlton Melton formed up along the Mendocino County coastline in Northern California in 2008. The idea to play live, loud, improvised, experimental, instrumental, psychedelic music in a geodesic dome had been discussed for many years prior to this date. The opportunity came to fruition after the Dome was completely rebuilt and the acoustic sounds inside were fully realized. This music is recorded live inside the Dome to analog and digital sources using carefully placed omni-directional microphones. All music is improvised. This EP was recorded before Mind Minerals and after their EP Hidden Lights both of which are in our library. This is a five-track excursion into free form psych, hazy drones, and all out fuzz freakouts. If you like this check out the other Carlton Melton albums in our library.

Yeah, Carlton Melton is best consumed live.
If you ever get the chance to see them live, I highly recommend it. They?re also a bunch of nice guys, I?ve texted Richie a few times, Richie?s the man.
Thanks to *KFJC* for turning me on to them. Thanks to Dennis for showcasing them at The Gathering of The Tribes. Damn! How I miss San Francisco.
