Expo '70: Black Ohms

Expo '70 is a band started by Justin Wright and their music consists of drone base songs. The music on this CD is very minimalist and stark. Many of the songs here use a slow delay effect on the guitar to give a very spacey sound. The song "Solitude" is probably the best example of this; it also has strongest guitar playing of the whole CD. The last two tracks on Black Ohms remind me of Tangerine Dream styled background music. Tangerine Dream's music succeeds because they have this eerie music in the background and play a main theme over top of it. Expo '70 just has the background music and not much else.

If you are fan of minimalist or repetitive music you may enjoy this CD, also fans of Ash Ra Temple might find something to enjoy here.
