“Sounds like a lost 1980s preppy soul cassette fished out from the bottom of a lake, complete with cod-reggae number – and one song in Japanese…” – @uncut_magazine

EXPO is the collaborative project between Philadelphia-based musicians Dave McGrory (Tangled Up, Grace Vonderkuhn), Russ Israel (russy, Rew), and Tyler Yoder (Milieu Lust, High Reeper, Cosmic Guilt). While McGrory, Israel, and Yoder have all played in others’ and each others’ projects previously, EXPO marks the start of something particularly salient for the three… It is the embodiment of a distinct and true collaboration between the three members – one in which they are free to musically explore, challenge, and to indulge in their wildest impulses and excesses, unbound by the constraints of classic song forms or aesthetics. The resulting self-titled EP, out on June 2nd via Brooklyn-based label Window Sill, can best be described as garage-psych-epics-for-kids-who-like-to-club. Throughout the EP’s four tracks, the trio seamlessly weaves sample-based disco grooves with post-punk chugging and fuzzed out guitar explorations, all the while with McGrory’s fierce and cutting vocal howl leading the charge… It’s a thrill ride of sonic maximalism – one that encapsulates the joy, inspiration, and most importantly, the sheer exhilaration, of three friends cutting loose.
