Carlton Melton biography
The formation of CARLTON MELTON was, in a sense occasional and in another inevitable.

July 17th, 2008 was the special day for them - Andy Duvall (guitar and drums), Brian McDougall (drums), Rich Millman (guitar, synthesizers), and John Steuernagel (bass) have drawn up a plan to play live, loud, improvised, experimental, instrumental, psychedelic music in the Geodesic Dome off the Mendocino County coastline in Northern California, where one of the members resides and lots of friends have gigged and recorded all kind of music for a long time - this project came true on the day and eventually CARLTON MELTON could give the first shout as a permanent band.

CARLTON MELTON create an original music style with much influenced by lots of music and artists, especially by the sounds constructed inside the Dome and the beautiful, coastal setting in Mendocino County. A few weeks later, the July 17th show was arranged and mixed into a CD-R, that could be self-released with the title 'Live In Point Arena'.

Spring of 2009 brought another session to CARLTON MELTON, triggered by some sessions such as The HEADS' or 'Jams From The Heart' of Eddie Hazel in Funkadelic. They shot a brilliant 12-inch vinyl 'Pass It On' at November 7th 2009.

4 stars Their progression during less one year is terrific.

Hmm, how can I say about my first impression of the first track When You're In? As if I was struck with the grandeur such as Nazca Lines. Well you know, they could get bigger-hearted, more relaxed, and more flexible 'for uniting themselves with the Geodesic Dome, their studio, stage, and simultaneously residence'. Here is such an atmosphere like my impression all around the album Pass It On... For example, Digging In (F. F. Shite) is a song renewed F**king Funky S**t in the previous CD-R album but it can let me realize the depth and thickness around the sounds - oh, they can be digging in their sound and style more and more in this work in my humble opinion.

At any rate, they can be greater on this session. In a short but grand supply Off The Grid they can hit it off very well together...in spite of the difficulty to form this stuff completely, I feel. That is, not only all members but the Dome itself can walk on the same way - toward constructing the complete 'dome-y (not doomy?)' psychedelia.

Bravo!

— First review of this album —
4 stars Exactly 'July 17th, 2008' was the special day for them.

Rich Millman emphasized me about the beauty of the Mendocino County coastline in Northern California. Yes, their beautiful psychedelia with relaxed plays should be the most influenced by this atmosphere around them. So, honest to say, I can imagine their sounds visualized should look like quiet ripples under the setting sun - they can play not only drone but noble surrealistic music, BRAVO!

By the way, suggest that CARLTON MELTON themselves should be the happiest of all around this live album - in the Geodesic Dome they could get full support by the audience mates, the recording staffs, and the air and echoic effect of the Dome. And of course, most of all, their skills of playing and psychedelic essence, and their pleasure!

From the beginning they can show obviously their powerful personality and pleasure to play. The first track Happy Song should be just as the title says. Absolutely they are absorbed in the happy world...with playing as they wanna do, especially relaxed but steady drumming. All players and audience and us - the listeners of this album - are in the same realm existed as a Dome I always feel. On the contrary, the next Against The Wall is a danger...as if I could be made to face the earthquake melting down our 'earth' by rumbling noises and sounds. But I wonder, why I be satisfied and amazed with such a low-pitched shout of all instruments. F**king Funky S**T, despite of the title, is a comfort. Also here 'graceful' drum sounds can lead me to psychedelically comfortable underground. Inter Mission and Root Ball are completely improvised guitar heroes - as if they make something impressing from the utter vacancy. Full Moon Ridge is an union of their psychedelic elements - that is, I wanna say, their masterpiece. They say they are influenced by various elderly musicians and pioneers, and in this song I can feel an old flavour I have experienced long time before...right? In the last, suitable for the last of this album, Legion Of Dome, CARLTON MELTON and the audience and us could be united with the Dome they played in to form an exact psychedelia...by the heavy and dark soundscape.

Please be intoxicated with CARLTON MELTON - a gift from a beautiful coastline.
