EXPO '70 "Solar Drifting" CD/CS
A collection of previously released and now out-of-print singles and an EP from 2008-2012. Compiled, arranged for an album and newly mastered for a unique listening experience. While most of Justin Wright's project is a vast collection of long-form songs that span hours upon hours of listening material, this collects short snippets into the wold that Wright has created. The general idea behind Expo '70 is letting an idea evolve and take shape over time, collected here are either snippets of long-form jams or general ideas tailored for a shorter piece of music. Works are compiled from a split 7" and 3" CDr released in collaboration between Short Forest and Small doses, two 7" releases from Trensmat and Eat, Sleep, Repeat with an EP released on Wright's own label Sonic Meditations. The cover illustration is from the "Sunglasses" 7" and was an initial design option. A great starting point for people afraid to jump into the vast discography of Expo '70. CD edition on Zoharum (Poland).

"A krautrock that is less about propulsion and rhythm and more about texture and ambience, think Ash Ra Tempel, AR & The Machines, Tangerine Dream, Eno, Popol Vuh. Guitars aren't strummed and picked, they are sort of allowed to unwind, long glistening strands of reverberating buzz unfurl and float into the hazy ether. Synthesizers unleash a similarly disembodied sonic vibe, soft clouds of fuzzy whir and distant chordal warmth. Very much the sonic equivalent to drifting down a warm summer stream, on your back, watching the clouds drift by, the trees on the shore shimmer and sway. Or maybe more accurately, floating in the vacuum of space, everything weightless, untethered and drifting lazily through the inky blackness. The light of stars and suns bends and twists, slowly cycling through the visible spectrum, disobeying all laws of physics, wrapping you in a thick swirl of sonic brilliance. This music has to be the work of some immortal group of dronelords, sitting in their multidimensional fortress, atop some mysterious lost mountain, who in their infinite wisdom, allow their dreamlike drones and angelic ambience to fall from the sky and settle over us like a light dusting of snow..." - Aquarius Records
