Expo '70 On A Predictably Unpredictable Trajectory
Expo 70 has never done anything by halves, continually dishing out his brand of droning guitar explorations with an astonishing rate of consistency. A solo project of Kansas City-ite Justin Wright, Expo 70 lurk around the outer realm of psych rock yet deserves to be further in the sunlight - even if its the wan, sickly kind. Latest release Inaudible Bicoastal Trajectory (out through Aguirre Records) is a two track behemoth, offering menacing drum machine, synth devilry and vibrating guitar thrums that intends to rend your world asunder - and succeeds unequivocally. The best part about this release is that it is a live performance, something that I struggled to fathom. Yeah, its drone, its Expo 70, its life as Wright knows it - yet I find it absolutely compelling, and another example of just how great this guy is.
