Expo ’70 – Where Does Your Mind Go? (Immune, 2010)

I already had a short post earlier this year about Inaudible Bicoastal Trajectory by the space kraut-psych-rockers Expo ’70, but I also picked up this double LP Where Does Your Mind Go? which was released in 2010 on the pretty fine Immune Recordings.

One each side of this double LP we find one piece of improvised spaced out psych drones. Expo ’70 works with analogue synths, guitars and effects but unlike many of their peers in the Kosmische musik the don’t really play the arpeggio deal here. They are an ingredient to the music but not the most important one. They have a bigger focus on creating drones, which are also quite spacey. This combined with the machine drum rhythms gives it a great krautrock feeling.
Besides this spaced-out stuff there is also room for more minimal music. On side C we find a piece with a focus on the piano which has a more minimal character. It is a good break between the psychedelic trip.

It took me a bit of time to get used to this record, but when it drops it finally drops really well. It is a good trip, one that works extra good at high volume.

Two vinyl editions limited to 500, also available on cassette and digital.
