EXPO 70 + Ancient Ocean

Immagine

Expo ’70  is the main driving improvisational essence of Justin Wright.
Having started the project in Los Angeles in 2003, Wright has pushed his
project to new levels, releasing a number of albums as cdr’s and 2
full-length albums. Expo ’70’s first album “Animism”, which debuted in 2007
on Kill Shaman, is an eclectic mix of krautrock, ambient drone, space
exploration and minimal compositions. Comparisons range from Brian Eno, Ash Ra Tempel, A.R. & Machines, SunnO))) and Earth, but not directly sounding like any of those artists in their entirety.

In Zaire

In Zaire is a psychedelic tribal quartet involving the memers of the italian duo G.I. Joe, Claudio Rocchetti and Stefano Pilia. Their performance is able to bring the audience into a psychedelic trip. But their music is not only psychedelic. They mix dub-funk drum rythms, tribal and african percussions, electrical-indian bassguitar melodies, arabic and psychedelic voices, and minimal-introspective electronic sounds.

Family Underground

Link 1  Link 2

Family Underground is the duo from Copenhagen, Denmark. Started out in 2003, the band aquring the name in recognition of the need to express a new way to bend and mend the traditions of psychedelic sound wich has been the creative core for the band’s concept: weaving intricate layers of electric storms played on guitars, synth, vocal and effects.

With the inspirations from early experimental art and music, Family Underground is trying to ask some of the same questions through electronic meditations from their work base, the Panic Room.

A slew of releases on the FU’s own label Into the Lunar Night with later CD and LP releases on labels such as Weird Forest, Heavy Tapes, Sound@One, Qbico(R.I.P), Woodsist, Not Not Fun and Sloow Tapes.

These days the FU trade-mark sound is based on minimal guitar riffing, noizy synth drones and multi-layeredlo-fieffects.
