On this fine Wednesday we are beyond pleased, blissed out even if you catch us at the right moment, to share news about Phase Zero, the Sub Pop debut full length from Morgan Delt.
Phase Zero is the follow-up to Morgan’s acclaimed self-titled release that caught our eyes and ears back in 2014. It was performed entirely by Delt and recorded in his Topanga Canyon studio, with mastering by JJ Golden at Golden Mastering.
Phase Zero will beavailable worldwide on CD / LP / DL / CASS on August 26th and is available right now for preorder from the Sub Pop Mega Mart and other fine online retailers. As per usual these days for our Sub Pop releases, all LP pre-orders placed through Sub Pop Mega Mart (and most independent retailers near you) will receive a limited Loser Edition vinyl, with Phase Zero’s Loser Edition being on red vinyl. Please remember that all Loser Editions are available only while supplies last so this isn’t something that will be around for long. Order soon, is what we are saying.
Also, Morgan will be going on tour. We’ve included all the dates that have been confirmed so far below and it’s probably a good idea to stay tuned for more. Morgan’s Facebook or Sub Pop Artist Page will have you covered in that regard.
the unabashed pride befitting such circumstances, Sub Pop Records
hereby reveals completion of a new recording agreement with Los
Angeles-based psychedelic pop artist Morgan Delt, to extend throughout
the known universe. Following a 2013 cassette release bearing the subtly
evocative title Psychic Death Hole, Trouble in Mind Records released his self-titled album in January, 2014. That album earned acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, LA Weekly, Fact Magazine, and Impose,
and the attentions of the typically complacent staff of Seattle’s Sub
Pop Records. Morgan Delt also won fans in The Flaming Lips, who invited
him to tour and record with them. Morgan is currently working on a new
album for Sub Pop and will tour the West Coast at the end of January. We
eagerly await both. Full dates below.
What Are People Are Saying About Morgan Delt? This: “Listen
to the taped-together percussion on opener “Make My Grey Brain Green”,
which rides a scratchy bass line and flowers into something like the
moment when Dorothy’s black-and-white world goes RGB. There’s the
Morricone-meets-Jodorowsky acid drone of “Barbarian Kings”, the cyclical
wobble of “Little Zombies”, the way “Chakra Sharks” rattles and crashes
through a hornet’s nest of guitars into a wailing refrain of “Bye bye,
farewell.” Throughout the album there’s a heightened, eerie quality to
his vocals; the feeling is something like an asylum patient waving to a
car as it recedes over the horizon.” - Pitchfork
debut album proper, an 11-track collection on the Chicago imprint
Trouble In Mind, takes something from the Ariel Pink school of outré
production, although Delt is quite obviously on his own trip, and you
could just as easily work him into a lineage that stretches from The Red
Krayola and West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band through to
psych-influenced beatmakers such as Edan, Gonjasufi and The Gaslamp
Killer.” - Fact Magazine
allows his guitar and vocals to meld into a single, constantly mutating
surface that coats Morgan Delt like neon jelly in a vacuum,
continuously rippling and hovering in all directions. The overall effect
suggests the sound of a crafty intellect worming its way through the
pleasantly foggy maze of an Rx-abuse cloud.” - Impose
lot of people have done the same kind of excavation and restoration
work he has, but few have done it as memorably. Almost no one has done
it with songs as good as these.” - All Music Guide
