The Black Delta Movement have picked up a little momentum going into their debut LP Preservation. Anton Newcombe and Alan McGee are thought to be fans of the Hull psych-rockers, and the group have toured with Drenge and The Jesus And Mary Chain. It’s easy to see why Newcombe’s a fan - the ten tunes here bear more than a smidgen of influence from The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

7/10 Robin Staff review, 01 August 2018

Hull City of Culture 2017 has really done so much for our lives. My favourite Northern Powerhouse of all time, they’ve even started to produce their own psych rock bands, giving us such sunglassed delights as the Black Delta Movement, whose emotively chugged distortion speaks to the fact we will never, ever, give up this particular strand of sound. Never. Anton Newcombe likes it, Alan McGee likes it, and between that you know all you need to about what’s going on with ‘Preservation’.

One of those ‘extremely good at what they do’ bands, the Black Delta Movement seem to channel psych rock through a kinda hard lens, using woozy solos and super straightforward chord progressions to provide listener’s actual earworms. Their sounds are repetitive and circular, but in such a way that each hook feels like a triumph, as if they’re championing it rather than running it into the ground. “Rome” is a fantastic opener, and the phased-in guitars of “Hunting Ground” become a textural backdrop for the track, a smoky Western psych tune that gets fully raucous without losing itself.

It’s a crisp, recognisable sound, and looking down the clientele I can see why: ‘Preservation’ is produced by Mike Burnham, an in-house hero for the extremely psychedelic Fuzz Club. On this record he emphasises an intangible middle-ground between blown out in the distance and the uncomfortable close quarters of garage rock. The Black Delta Movement have the hypnotic aesthetic of their genre but you can hear them, every bit of them, and it has them stick a little longer the memory. Psychlords and fuzzfolk need to seek this one out.
