LISTEN: Carlton Melton – ‘Smoke Drip’

Pass the bong and salute the sun! Celebrate summer solstice with Carlton Melton

Ok, so today probably hasn’t brought exactly the kind of summer solstice you might have hoped for, especially not if you’re predisposed to gulps of sticky smoke and handfuls of magical fungi for breakfast, but it could be worse: lysergic San Franciscan four-piece Carlton Melton are here for all your sun hailing needs, with their new Smoke Drip 12" that shipped on the 18th June just so it could arrive on the doorstep today. We’re pleased to be able to offer you a listen to the title track below, to give you a concentrated trip into inner space and back. Fans of Bardo Pond, Barn Owl, White Hills and all that psych-seared good stuff take note, strap in and lift off. (Don’t forget the party supplies.)

Also on the 12" is an epic 19 minute long A-side, entitled ‘Adrift’, which will take you even further into the void. Click here for more information. Carlton Melton also play at this year’s Supersonic Festival, which takes place in Birmingham from October 19th-21st this year.
