  • expo 70 – filer a l’Anglaise – deep distance

    $16.00 Add to cart

    Next up on Deep Distance following a full sold out back catalogue thus far (Kosmonaut / JD Emmanuel / Kohn etc) is the long promised mighty new EXPO 70 full length. Released as a pressing of 500 only on mauve, red and black splatter wax with embossed DD insert…

    The LP features 3 extended jams from the latter days of the working relationship between mainman Justin Wright and Matt Hill (prior to his wonderful recordings under the ‘Umberto’ moniker). Recently unearthed by Justin specifically for this vinyl release (although watch out for an extended version for cassette only later) the set starts with the wonderful zoned out pulse of “Acerbic Lament” interspersed by JW’s piercing guitar tones and textures.

    “Winter of Discontent” is more organic, otherworldly and in places reminiscent of some of the early Popol Vuh catalogue. The reverse features the epic sidelong “Ceremony of the Blind”; constituting 3 parts and to these ears represents one of the finest sides to the huge Expo 70 catalogue. A compelling cosmic soundscape punctuated by evolving waves of carefully constructed synth and guitar drone with flurries of percussive pulse, particularly on the closing section “Eternal The Night”.

    Another essential addition to the ever growing Expo 70 collection- a one off pressing on gorgeous coloured wax with 2 inserts in awesome JW designed sleeve, expected to sell out quickly…


  • black unicorn – rediscovering infinity

    $14.00 Add to cart

    Black Unicorn is the solo synth project of Akron, Ohio based Curt Brown (Cane Swords, Rubber City Noise).

    “Rediscovering Infinity” is a debut on wax and compiles 5 killer, evocative synth pieces, acting perfectly as an introduction to his work. 3 tunes here previously seeing the light of day on tiny run cassette and cdr releases, whilst the monumental title track (recorded especially for this project) is constructed as a 5 part movement that reinterprets an earlier theme as a story of cosmic awakening and redemption.

    Black Unicorn’s music is both contemplative and exploratory- ranging from subtle drone to melodic outburst and is created on both analogue and digital synthesizers, sequencers and effects. Basic electronic building blocks are treated as analogous to alphabet characters- another way of telling a story that is both in harmony and supplement to the written word. Each piece on the LP has it’s own special insert that expands upon the music through textual fragments and icon- detailing both instrumentation and basic meaning. The larger insert features an illustration by Matt Horak, whose drawings are scattered throughout.

    The second release on ‘Deep Distance’ -a synth / kraut themed side project to The Great Pop Supplement, and a wonderful album in beautiful black embossed sleeves released as a numbered edition of 250 copies on vinyl only.
