TRACK OF THE WEEK: 11/11/13 “Beneath The Black And Purple”

FEATURES|Recent|Track of the Week


“Beneath The Black and Purple” by Morgan Delt inspires a three-minute long feeling of paranoiac elation. Within the first few seconds, listeners are transported into an eerie, acid-drenched atmosphere reminiscent of something you’d encounter on a Roky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators record. Think Thee Oh Sees meets Ty Segall meets Love meets ‘66 psychedelia recorded on a 4 track, and you essentially have the haunting, hallucinogenic California soundscape of “Beneath The Black and Purple”, a song where Delt muses on “being buried alive.” Delt’s pleas to ‘please let me out’ echo over twangy guitars reverberating over drums forcefully thumping in the background.

The song will be included on Delt’s self-titled debut to be released on January 28, 2014 through the Chicago record label, Trouble In Mind. For now, enjoy our track of the week!
