Limited Edition Sub-Pop Loser edition First Run Coloured Vinyl.
After releasing one awe-inspiring neo-psych album for Trouble in Mind, Morgan Delt jumped to Sub Pop for his next effort, 2016's Phase Zero. His first album was a stunning re-creation of '60s psychedelia, acid rock, folk-rock and twisted sunshine pop all filtered through a home studio aesthetic and spit back out in technicolor clouds of sound. His melodies were entrancing, the way he layered the fuzz and flowers together was masterful, and he generally made the kind of record that if it were released in 1967, would have been hailed as a classic. In other words, an album that would seem very hard to follow up, much less top. Amazingly, Phase Zero does both of those. Delt hasn't lost any of his dazed wonder, hasn't moved his operation to a big studio, didn't collaborate with anyone, and basically took what he did on the first album and gave it an extra dose or ten of sunshine. Where Morgan Deltwas a little creepy and almost doomy around the edges, Phase Zero is like downing a month's worth of Vitamin D all in one mouthful.
