10th ANNIVERSARY EDITION:
2XLP 180 gram (200 gold / 300 black vinyl) / CS (100 glitter gold)
Originally released on CDr in 2006 with Kill Shaman and quickly caught the eye and ears of Aquarius Records in San Francisco. With the help of carrying the CDr release, Wright produced around 650 CDr's to keep with the demand of Aquarius' review from their list no. 243. "Gorgeous drifting ethereal krautrocky ambience is what Expo '70 is all about, and eyes closed, you'd be hard pressed to not think this was some Ash Ra Tempel disc or some long lost A.R. and The Machines lp. Crafted entirely from guitars, sitar and Moog, each track here is some sort of lengthy, mesmerizingingly blissed out minimal drone jam. Guitar figures are looped into hypnotic cycles, over shimmery whirls of fuzzy sound and distant drones, the looped riffs slowly shifting and gently changing shape. It's almost like some sort of new age space rock Steve Reich." Aquarius couldn't have summed up the etherial mystique around Wright's developing project better.
Newly mastered after being out of print since 2009, this classic album finally graces 2 LP's and Cassette, both in limited editions on Sonic Meditations. Gatefold tip-on jackets, 200 gold and 225 black 180 gram vinyl. 100 glitter gold cassettes.
J. G. Wright "Sorcerer of Sound" LTD CS
"Sorcerer of Sound" or "S.O.S." is a concept album by Justin Wright of Expo '70. A collection of analog improvised experiments that harken back to the early days of private press releases. LP was released on Polytechnic Youth last Summer. Long-term devotees to Wright’s recording career will no doubt dig that although aspects of the recording equipment and improvised approach here may alter slightly, the trademark of cosmic drones with the other worldliness aura to his music is thankfully, very much accounted for. Edition of 50 copies with signed insert. Download via Bandcamp.
