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.
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 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.

Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp
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.
