Expo '70 has garnered a great deal of notoriety over the last few years in certain circles in which the moniker is usually mentioned to describe types of cross-genres. After completing a couple US tours and a handful of limited releases and re-releases in 2010, a short hiatus was in order. During this time last year Justin Wright, sole operator of the project, recorded tracks for an upcoming release. Wright entered a basement studio and improvised over two nights layered recordings for the first time in several months. A track from this session was released earlier this year as the title track for Sound of Cobra's "Hovering Resonance" one-sided limited LP. That song did not take up the full record and Wright returned to the studio with his current 3 piece line-up to record "Moon Raga", a more eastern-sounding influenced exploration. The edition of 200 hand silk screen covers which disappeared extremely fast. The remainder of the solo session is collected here as one full album entitled "Beguiled Entropy", which explores more fidelity in sounds and texture than "Hovering Resonance". Soft synthesizer creeps along to explorations dominated by drifting melodic guitar leads, quickly shifting in textural atmospheres. As "Beguiled Entropy" is flipped to side B, the narratives drop and a more driving synth line bridges a rising pulse that takes the steering wheel in to a more cosmic psychedelic territory, adding analog drum machines leading the listener deeper into a trance-like state. This release co-insides with Expo '70's first European tour this September. Mastered by James Plotkin.
