Carlton Melton plays this Sat October 13th at the Knockout in San Francisco with Buffalo Tooth and Chaki… early show 4-8pm !!!VVVVVVVVV

Buffalo Tooth - …From raved up psychedelic trips, to jangling East Coast melodies and thrashing punk rippers and everywhere in between Buffalo Tooth not only walk the walk, they talk the talk and seem to understand a few fundamental things about music most musicians are missing out on.  Not bound to any flagship style or sound, Buffalo Tooth is free to continue creating their own music with out the expectations or interference from the world around them, and that’s the way it should be… ( psychedelic baby magazine )..

Chaki - .. Chaki is a funky alien wizard from Outer Space hailing from the planet Chaka 12. With his unique take on electro punk bass thump, he has brought his weird ass stage show to festivals like Noise Pop and has opened up for like minded weirdos Peelander Z, Bob Log III, Metalachi, Captured By Robots and The Oingo Boingo Dance Party. Rolling Stone said he is like Prince except not sexy and much fatter.. https://chaki.bandcamp.com/

Norman Records - reviews // carlton melton ‘hidden lights’…

…The council of psychedelia known as Carlton Melton unleash another slab of wax and have the audacity to call it an EP. It’s twenty five minutes long, that I’ll grant you, but over three tracks. Psych rock is a different world, of course, and Carlton Melton have always needed a lot of time to stretch out. They’re excused because opener “Memory” is maybe the most beautiful thing they’ve ever put out, a meditation made against but also in conjunction with all their inhibitions -- the same basic band plays this spacey, hypnotic guitar tune, but they do so in a whisper of unison, brushing drums against gorgeously hushed guitar work that could easily exist in the first half of an Explosions In The Sky song…

THE QUIETUS - CARLTON MELTON ‘MIND MINERALS’ REVIEW -

THE QUIETUS - CARLTON MELTON ‘MIND MINERALS’ REVIEW -

Since they emerged from the overpopulated coterie of Northern California psych-rock acts, Carlton Melton have been on a journey of simplification and distillation. It is an illuminating exercise to revisit their debut, 2009’s Pass It On, and note just how musical it is, how colourful, compared to this, their sixth album proper. Mind Minerals is a double album of magnificent monotony, defiantly uncompromising improvisation and breathtakingly dense instrumental noise…- barnaby smith..

psych insight music - Album Review: Mind Minerals by Carlton Melton

psych insight music - Album Review: Mind Minerals by Carlton Melton

It’s an album that announces itself with a bang, and leaves with a flourish; yet in between there’s plenty there to sit and just be… to zone out and refuel. It is very much an album that has to be played in full to be properly appreciated, and for me that’s very welcome in a culture that wants its gratifications far too quickly. Here Carlton Melton release the musical pheromones slowly and allow you time to react accordingly. …

Live Review: Carlton Melton, Manchester, UK, Feb. 23, 2018

And thus the show pendulum swings from the cutting-edge to the primordial, from head-feeding to head-banging. So are the men of Carlton Melton highly advanced aliens slumming it through a primitive form of rock or are they cavemen soundtracking the ballet of celestial bodies? … eric bensel

…The 10 minute Snow Moon takes its time to develop with Manley's low, squelchy, Juno synth snaking around an Ambient drone. The feeling that you have with Carlton Melton is that they have all the time in the world, nothing is forced into creation but rather evolves in its own time. There are also glimpses of a deconstructed Tangerine Dream here. The intriguingly titled A Basketful Of Trumpets is next. Needless to say neither basket nor trumpet appears but instead a tentative Psychedelic guitar line weaves around Duvall and Clint Golden's quiet drums and bass.
