‘Evolution’ by Expo Seventy
After the highly praised ‘America Here & Now Sessions’, Expo Seventy is ready for a definitive stellar comeback five years later! Enjoy the exclusive album stream of ‘Evolution’ by Expo Seventy.
Aptly titled ‘Evolution’, the album showcases the trio-mode line-up led by Justin Wright at the peak of their glowing, spontaneously unique brand of slow-burning lysergic sounds and anthemic riffages.
Sacred drone tones and spectral analog synth meditations evoking deep ritualized aural metaphysic experiments — elements widely known from Expo ’70, Wright’s solo moniker (Seventy is not equal to 70 in his universe) — gravitate around long-form, trance-like magnetic waves of heady guitar jams that stretch to the other side of the cosmos to effortlessly coexist with amazing doom-inspired heavier incursions packed with mystical blown-out riffs and megatons of amp toned torque. The outcome is an one-of-a-kind document of dark and cosmic psychedelia.
Recorded over two distinct periods of time — partially analog to 24-track reel-to-reel and partially digital due to complications in demagnetizing the tape —, different masterings are offered on each format (Vinyl, CD and Digital), providing distinctive listening experiences on all mediums.
