Vinyl LP pressing. 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, Well water Conspiracy), Photos of Photos is a testament to Carlton Melton's finely honed craft. The four-piece melds what might otherwise be an indecipherable psychedelic mess into something coherent, uncompromising and loud: Melton's Magick Karpet Ride. The full 23-minute psychedelically enhanced drone of 'Adrift' peaks and dips as the title suggests, while 'Smoke Drip' sounds exactly how one imagines a song called 'Smoke Drip' would. And that is exactly what Photos of Photos is about: The sound, the vibe; a new age drifting, unchartered, across a sonic expanse.
