“an ambitious, exciting and decidedly weird achievement…” Uncut
 
 
"a call for a return to psychedelic first principles, a road map to a music built out of sensory alteration, strange temporal shift, and eternal high times philosophy." FACT Magazine

"Morgan Delt is very, very proficient, nailing the '67 sound while injecting a dose of discipline that many imitators miss" The 405

“The tunes of this debut album are so trippy they make Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd seem a bit pedestrian….” Loud & Quiet
 
“Psychic Death Hole”, the ultra limited 6 song cassette released early in 2013 introduced the world to Morgan Delt’s self-produced, genre-bending flavour of brown acid-dosed flower-delia. Equal parts ‘Odyssey & Oracle’ and ‘Parable of Arable Land’, Morgan Delt’s debut expands on those initial tracks and brings forth one a fully realized glimpse into the California native’s twisted brain.
Morgan cites influences from Curt Boettcher to West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band and rounds it out with golden age sunset strip heavies The Byrds and Love. It’s all in there; obsessively studied, mastered and then mutated. Opening with the one/two punch of ‘Make My Grey Brain Green’ and ‘Barbarian Kings’ blasting apart 40 years of pop-psych and stitching it back together in a way that is both familiar but also refreshingly new. ‘Beneath the Black and Purple’ soars with a chiming guitar grumble right out of ‘8 Miles High.’’ & “Chakra Sharks” squirms it’s way out of the speakers like a snake - oiled up with the stink of not only what came before, but what’s happening NOW. The drums pound hard & 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 it’s way into your brain and takes hold.
The finale ‘Main Title Sequence’, is all Stu Phillips-worship, right out of the soundtrack to your favourite 60’s cult classic with it’s angelic backing vocals and lilting tremolo lead but somehow still buzzes with a modern current. As Morgan so keenly described his notion on the current state of genre bending music “I think we’ve become unstuck in time and everything is going to happen all at once from now on.”
