Press Release: "San Francisco tripmakers-supreme Carlton Melton return with a new 25 minute-plus three track 12" EP for Agitated Records, their first release since their widely received 2LP "Out To Sea" in 2015 and, indeed the accompanying 2016 RSD "Aground" 12" release. Hidden Lights is the first missive from recent recordings undertaken once again at El Studio with the watchful engineering and collaboratory help of Phil Manley (Trans AM / Lifecoach / Fucking Champs).. Phil throws in some slinky guitar moves that help make the Carlton Melton Magick Karpet soar…. John McBain (Evil Acidhead /Monster Magnet/Wellwater Conspiracy ) also guests on guitar, and has once again mastered the ’Melton’s sike-adelic-drone to perfection… Released on 500 12”’s or unlimited DL!!!

Piccadilly records (Manchester) has a release date of 2017/08/11.
Other record retailers have a release date of 2017/08/25.
I pre-ordered my copy from Piccadilly records in late June 2017. It arrived on 2017/08/10 - a day earlier than the specified release date!
