4 stars Expo 70 is a sensational minimal-neo krautrockin' project of the guitarist Justin Wright. Exquisite Lust figures among the first recordings but directly reveals Wright's unique musical signature. His sound universe is focused on dense-moving dronescapes mainly built on very low frequencies, electro-loops, guitar's echoing patterns and atonal vibes. This is really sonorous stuff with huge, massive spherical electric frequencies and deep resonances. All musical paintings are evocative and luminously cinematic. The moving drone textures play with extended, circular time and subtle micro-changes. These epic compositions are really immersive and hauntingly absorbing. Exquisite Lust is an astonishing cerebral and phenomenological trip which investigate the liminal (marginal) spaces of the sensorial / sensitive experience. it achieves a balance between lubugrious-desolate moods and eternal dreaminess (obtained by dynamic and buzzing guitar leads). The instrumentation expressively capture the essence of mystical-trance (like) communication. Exquisite Lust is an essential and playful adventurous drone rockin album. With albums as Mystical amplification or Animism, Justin Wright will carry on the exploration of singular micro-tonal genealogies. Highly recommended for fans of krautrock nihilism, early US minimalism and dark (industrial) ambient.
