Aaron Martin is a multi-instrumentalist who has previously recorded three acclaimed albums on Preservation; Almond. River Water and Chautauqua. He has developed an idiosyncratic, singular and engaging style with his electro-acoustic compositions tracing an arc for a new kind of Americana steeped in cinematic ambience and alien wonder.
Justin Wright is better known as Expo 70. As Expo 70, Wright has a long string of recordings dedicated to pursuing extended meditations for solo guitar that draw upon krautrock, drone and space exploration.
In blooding their collaboration on tape recording Light Poured Out Of Our Bones at Wright’s home studio in Kansas City, Missouri, Martin and Wright combine for a work set deep with epic, foreboding resonance. Angling between wired and taut guitar serrations and slithering, loping synth textures mingling with cello, organ, banjo, singing bowls and voice, these pieces trip out on their own psychedelic reverie with a dark kind of ecstasy.
Compelling and hypnotic, this is music conjuring strange dream sensations to wholly succumb to. (Preservation)
