Local label Trouble in Mind, run by Bill and Lisa Roe, has been releasing records at an incredible rate since its inception in 2009. Starting out mostly focusing on garage rock, the label has gone on to lean more toward pop with an experimental flare, with superpsychy and Krautrock LPs becoming its hallmark. One of these releases is the debut solo effort from former Mmoss member Doug Tuttle, which came out in January, and on Sunday, May 11 he brings his first tour under his own name to the Burlington. The self-titled record is front-to-back filled with lush, dreamy psych-pop, its warm recording sounding like something straight out of the 60s. Every song channels early Pink Floyd and even the Beatles, with chiming guitars, far-out flutes, and Mellotron drones rounding out the beautiful melodies.

The record, which comes in a snazzy gold-foil-stamped sleeve is available on the Trouble in Mind website. Give “Turn This Love,” a sprawling, hazy, six-minute cut off the LP, a listen below.

Tuttle is currently journeying back toward his native Massachusetts from his appearance at last week’s Austin Psych Fest.

Local droney psych band Verma, also on Trouble in Mind, open the show along with Nightime Sunshine. Doors are at 9 PM and admission is a $5 suggested donation.
