lp + download

Released: 10th Dec 2013


immersive 4 part instrumental suite re-imagines & re-animates the collected history of guitar-driven rock, from psych & Americana to post-punk & drone, lighting out for fresh territory in the process.

this fabulous record charts an alchemical transformation from the guitarist renowned for his nuanced playing in varied experimental & post-american primitive circles, into full-fledged de-constructivist rock & roll bandleader producing unabashedly ambitious, ecstatic body music. for fans of everyone from the grateful dead to television to six organs of admittance to mark mcguire. "'head-swelling psychedelic bliss showcasing forsyth’s equal admiration for the guitar interplay of both tom verlaine & richard lloyd from television & jerry garcia & bob weir of the grateful dead. it serves as a perfect example for what forsyth calls his music: cosmic americana” - tony rettman.
