Six Organs of Admittance. Paz Bonus EP (self released, 2019)
''3 songs recorded during same session as the For Octavio Paz record. One of the tracks appeared as a bonus track on the CD issue. The 2 other tracks were recently discovered while going through the original tapes during the remixing. Thought about offering as a bonus for pre-orders but decided it's more fun to give away free to everyone.
The songs were not really recorded at the times of their titles but since the record was mostly recorded after I'd get home from work at around 10:30 at night at the time I thought it was fitting.
Note - These tracks have NOT been mastered by Patrick Klem and as such do not really represent the sound of the newly remastered For Octavio Paz. There is still a good amount of fuzzy haze on there.''

Expo '70. Alive in 2010 (sonic meditations, 2019)
Two live sets from Expo '70's 2010 Fall US tour six days apart from one-another. First set in Kansas City, MO at Halcyon (R.I.P.), a second hand store for collectable toys, magazines, vinyl, music instruments and more. Second set at Dunes in Portland, OR local dive bar with Hellraiser playing before the set started.
Expo '70 was a one man show during this tour, manning guitar, analog drum machine and synth creating a continuous set of cosmic consciousness in the tradition of great German Kosmische pioneers Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze. Justin Wright would sit with his back to the audience an immerse himself in the sound, playing along with colored lights melting into the backdrop while manipulating an array of pedals and switching from instruments, building layers of cascading drones and rhythms fading in and out of each other on the fly live. 30+ minutes each set.

Plankton Wat. The Healing Earth (self released, 2019)
The Healing Earth was recorded during a snowstorm in Portland Oregon February 24th and 25th 2019. All music was improvised and recorded spontaneously using a Tascam 424 mkII cassette 4 track. The concept was to create original music in a subconscious matter, without planning or rehearsal, using limited tools - synthesizer, guitar, and bass. No computers, amps, or loopers were used.
As the recordings progressed the music took on a spiritual nature, reflecting the silent landscape, the dead of winter, and the possibility of transformation and renewal. The album is designed as a meditation on things forgotten, and discovering a new path forward. Dewey Mahood
