3 stars This is how krautrock should work ... EXPO '70 is the brainchild of Justin White, a project probably named after the world's fair which took place in Osaka, Japan. He's on the way for some time now (no, not since 1970, but the beginning of this century at least), just intensively experimenting with electronics and guitars. Here and there White invites some like-minded musicians in order to participate at his explorations. 'Hovering Resonance' is his latest 12'' production consisting of two tracks, and recorded with the help of two percussionists.

Backed by a simple electronic beat the title track marks a one-man show, offers minimalistic synths but multiple echoed guitars so much the more - inspired by Manuel Göttsching, I'm quite sure. Okay, this does not bring something really new to the table, but is a groundbreaking tune in any case, you bet!. Fifteen minutes which you can enjoy in a relaxed sweet-tempered mood. I like this! Second song Moon Raga is spiked with intensive percussion work then. Maybe you might imagine to dance around a (friendly) Sioux campfire when listening - only the cymbals and the synth background are able to disengage you from some kind of misguided romaticism.

'Hovering Resonance' is a short but interesting new sign of life from EXPO '70. Just another contribution which proves that krautrock is still alive - 3.5 stars.
