Product Description

2014 album from the Indie Pop singer/songwriter. Morgan cites influences from Curt Boettcher to West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band and rounds it out with golden age Sunset Strip heavies like The Byrds and Love. It's all in there; obsessively studied, mastered and then mutated. The drums pound hard and heavy, while the backups "la-la-la" all over your noggin like a Frankenstein version of The Flaming Lips & Thee Oh Sees. Each track worms its way into your brain & takes hold.

Format: Audio CD
This is just one of two LPs released on the same day by Chicago psyche label Trouble In Mind so it’s only fair that we play a little compare and contrast. In one corner you have 60s-style jammer Doug Tuttle, songwriter and guitarist in the now-defunct New Hampshire band MMOSS and in the other Morgan Delt, Californian long-hair and rhyming slang expert (in some quarters Morgan Delt = melt). And melt you do into a kaleidoscopic haze of deep tabla drums and five decades’ worth of psyche-pop confetti.

It goes without saying then that Tuttle is the more traditional of the two for Delt is more of a Wayne Coyne-style protégée, skittering between classic grooves, improv psyche, leftfield pop and West Coast harmonies to name but a few – “Mr. Carbon Copy”, for example, comes from the same scruffy state as Ariel Pink. Delt is also the rarest of creatures it turns out: the hyperactive stoner. There are hence no repeato-rock endurance tests here. He prefers ideas: ideas stacked on ideas. Some are fully explored and some are left to gloop around the candy-cotton landscape like the inside of lava lamp.

Of course none of this is news to those familiar with Delt’s ear-catching cassette Psychic Death Hole, the majority of which is here captured again alongside new material. And the likes of the druggy “Barbarian Kings” sound as fresh as they did then, its beguiling mix of Eastern lurch and very woozy psyche-pop played off against little guitar explosions that shake you out of your tremulous reverie.

Delt is a psyche collagist, esoteric and exciting, his dominant bass, distorting garage-production echo and studio FX feeling like they hail from different planetary systems never mind different artists.

Sometimes you know what you're in for just from looking at the cover, and Morgan Delt's debut album delivers on that promise. Like being pushed down a hill in a shopping trolly, it's a thrilling, often bumpy ride that teeters on the brink of collapse. The opening salvo of Make My Brain Green, and the blissful ooze of Barbarian Kings set the standard, but the record rarely lets up, with warped pop hooks tossed liberally among the debris. Beneath The Black And Purple, Carbon Copy, and Chakra Sharks keep the pace alive, but it's in the dark heart of Tropicana where the album spins out of orbit.

Next stop: to see this album played live.

Great psych album. Could easily be mistaken for a long forgotten 60's classic. I'd doubt that any psych fan would be disappointed.

If this isn't my favorite album of 2014 I'll be surprised 31 Jan. 2014
By Lucyland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I know, it's not even February yet.

Apparently modern-day, melodically-twisted psychedelia conjured up by a single person not only exists outside of Perth, Australia but exists without the capable aesthetics of Kevin Parker (who knew?) in Topanga Canyon. Sorry to Morgan Delt but I’m not the first to utter your name in the same sentence containing “Tame Impala“. From me, it’s a huge compliment.

Where Kevin Parker stirs up early Todd Rundgren, obviously loves Led Zeppelin, John Lennon, and Jimi Hendrix guitar riffs (Bold Arrow of Time) after about 5 consecutive listens to Morgan Delt’s self-titled album I heard Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, a touch of Faust’s collage work, what little I know of early Kinks or the Byrds; “Mr. Carbon Copy” harkens to the early Who. (And I didn’t find it a stretch to follow up my 5 listens with Spirit’s “Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus”.) Like Kevin Parker, Mr. Delt takes a genre belonging to another era and brings a fresh ear to the sound. The two will coexist harmoniously in my library as they should in others.

While the aforementioned "Mr. Carbon Copy" was the first cut to hit repeat for me every song is a well-constructed gem—I haven't had to skip over any; wearing headphones it's been a pleasure catching the instrumentations, tempo changes, and textures he manages to weave together in an average span of 3 minutes. The song "Tropicana" earns a special mention given its melding of soaring guitar, bah bah bahs, piano tinks, harpsichord interlude, and obvious synth drums. This is the type of album younger siblings will recall being influenced by an older sibling in a future world :-)

I look forward to a future where out-takes are leaked and new gems are revealed. 5+ stars.
modern day psych pop, lo fi hi fi 19 May 2015
By Jared Jennings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
this album is very good. I love the batch of people doing the psych pop thing really well. kind of like "if we could of been back there, we would of done it better" thing. it is pretty faithful to the sound, though you can still hear the indie pop. the songwriting is very good, it is warped drugged out pop fun, it is listenable and strange at the same time, which always makes for good listening. if you like stuff like sid era floyd and trippy 60s pop or music from any period, you will really like it.

Hyper gel 23 April 2014
By edward cavazos - Published on Amazon.com

As I sit next to my pile of sandwich trash candy wrappers and chips I can't really think of anything to say about this album that the cosmos hasn't said already. Putting words together to describe what you may think is your own personal world view is as futile as it is furtive. What if I were like a tree? Or maybe some bits of plastic? Would that be boring? Who cares? I'm going to bike ride. Peece
Worth a listen for some experimental music for the 2010s 24 July 2014
By Northern Knight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I like it, can't say any song particularly stood out after a couple listens, it all kind of works as one piece. Found out about this through an interview with Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes and Chris Robinson Brotherhood who really digs this album. It's not quite as exciting as Chris' own work but it's influenced by a different period. Very Early Pink Floyd with Sid can be heard as well as a myriad of other bands from that period.
pop music from the vibrations of happily confused chemical Gods 8 July 2014
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Los Angeles artist debut—avant-noise hallucinatory pop/rock with backward guitar oscillations tripping over buried melodies that are equal parts harmony and distortion. There are some gorgeous pop hooks hidden here, peeking out from experimental prog-rhythm corners and holding their breath beneath the flow of unbridled psychedelic sound-loop froth. The songs have a strange, murky thickness hovering over the back of melody. Sometimes recalls bands like Tame Impala, Pond, Mmoss, Temples, Syd Barrett/Pink Floyd. Whatever drugs were involved in making this must have come from the vibrations of happily confused chemical Gods. And if it was a drug-free environment, well…Wow! Ultimate tripping music.
