mastered and featuring john mcbain (monster magnet, well water conspiricy) photos of photos sees carlton melton take their organic improvised psych-jam to the highest sonic plane befitting the geodesic dome in which it was recorded and pulverizing the psychedelic hypno-drone that has come before. photos of photos is a testament of carlton melton's ability to bottle and hone their craft with sincerity - from the lush pastoral sonics of 'nor-easter' and title track, 'photos of photos' the smoldering gargantuan riffs of 'space treader' and the synth drones and spare rhythms of lp closer 'wingspan'. carlton melton meld -what could be a heavy indecipherable psychedelic mess - into something louder, more uncompromising and more coherent: 'melton's magick karpet ride.' bonus tracks (available on cd and download) - featuring mcbain on guitar/synth/ echoplex - include the full 23 minute psychedelically enhanced drone 'adrift' that peaks and dips as the title suggests and 'smoke drip' sounds exactly how you imagine a song called 'smoke drip' to sound. and that is exactly what photos of photos is about: the sound, the vibe, a new age drifting, unchartered, across a sonic expanse.
