Morgan Delt

Los Angeles resident Morgan Delt makes the kind of heady psych rock that might've soundtracked an acid trip in a '60s movie. Last year he released the cassette-only Psychic Death Hole, an impressive and tuneful mix of ringing 12-strings, groovy basslines, eight-miles-high choruses, garage sale keyboards and genuinely trippy tape effects. It's kinda weird and creepy too, in a good way. Chicago label Trouble in Mind, who butter their toast with this kind of stuff, put out a 7" last year and are set to release Morgan Delt next week (1/28). It's an expanded version of Psychic Death Hole with five additional tracks. It's available for pre-order and you can stream the whole thing right now, via Hype Machine, below...

"Loos Angeles resident enthusiast..."????

Nice writing. Couldn't bother to even proof read the first sentence huh?

Yeah, I agree with 1:20 -- have no idea what a "Los Angeles resident enthusiast..." means. I read it like 3 times and was hoping something would click, but never did. What does it actually mean?
I really want to know.

^It means nothing. I'm guessing the writer forgot a word.

Pretty good shit! Reminds me of Dukes Of Stratosphere.

This is fab. If only we had dozens of albums this great to choose from every year!

One of the best albums I've heard in a looooooooooong time. Succeeds on a lot of levels.
