I do like a bit of Expo 70. He’s done some top records over the years! This beastie is a split with Ancient Ocean on the Sound Of Cobra/No Fi labels and they did only press 500 they did. Only. You know it’s gonna be cosmic right but how cosmic do you think it will be?
It’s cosmic alright! The Expo side sees Justin Wright wanging his guitar into the aether as he’s now all about the Moog (albeit via some computer software). It’s sweet! Lush layers of cosmic vibes and space noises are throbbing away over some intense-sounding repeato drones culminating in what sounds like an awesome sci-fi soundtrack. It’s totally chilling me out as well which is what I need after an insanely busy day in the Norm sweatshop.
The flip by Ancient Ocean starts off in a much more sedate fashion with some minimal pulsing bass tones before layers of ambience build up around it. It stays minimal (and Rain Drinkers-y) until about half way through when some mega guitar comes in and totally changes the direction into a more psychy spacey cosmic drone thing for a bit until it goes all ambient and chilled for the rest of the side. It’s an amazingly rich and varied piece of music and the album is well worth checking out for either side since both are excellent.
