Chris Forsyth
All Time Present

There are lists of guitarists in the history of rock, often called Steve or Joe, who can play all of the notes at once time in 11/8 time, but y’know that their albums aren’t that great. Chris Forsyth has the guitar chops to rival any man, but he also makes good albums. All Time Present is his latest expansive, psychedelic effort. On No Quarter.

Chris Forsyth
Solar Motel

While he's probably no relation of the late Bruce, one thing that's for certain is that Chris Forsyth’s oeuvre is a world away from that of ‘Mr. Nice-To-See-You’. Solar Motel is perhaps the most potent distillation of Forsyth’s brand of ‘Cosmic Americana’. A 40-plus-minute work split up into four sections, the hallucinatory rock vistas of this LP make one wonder what The Grateful Dead might have achieved if they’d ever teamed up with Sun Ra.

Dreaming In The Non-Dream

The press release for this is almost as long as Chris Forsyth's last album. I see the words Pere Ubu, Neu and Roxy Music in there so I'm assuming this next opus contains moments of '70s art rock amongst the blistering solo's and heat hazed Americana that he produced on earlier work. Prolific though isn't he?

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band
The Rarity of Experience Pts. I & II

Chris Forsyth is a guitar virtuoso, but one who decides to use his powers for good, not evil. Which is to say that he avoids tedious technical showcases in favour of expansive, classic-feeling jams with his excellent Solar Motel Band. The Rarity of Experience Pts. I & II is released as a double CD and double LP on the No Quarter label.

The Island

The sleeve art to Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp’s new record The Island gives you a good impression of what they achieve here. Over four tracks, the pair’s synths and guitars recline into a warm haze of sunset ambience. The two play off each other with lots of nice details, but all in service of the music’s blissful vibe. On Trouble In Mind.
