Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band

The Rarity of Experience Pts. I & II

No Quarter


Released: 4th Mar 2016


2LP + download

Released: 4th Mar 2016


adventurous double album from the inventive Philadelphia guitarist - bringing in new members of the Solar Motel Band to accompany Forsyth as the record heads out into multiple dimensions of brilliance.

at times the record is very grateful dead, at some points the record could fit on the shelves of the blue note jazz catalogue and at others it sounds like the rolling stones. Despite its wide ranging scope, at no point does it fall apart, forsyth's compositions holding the whole thing together along one psychedelic strand. with this album forsyth really has proven himself to be equally as adept a composer and bandleader as he is guitar stylist. "both discs reflect the different aspects of forsyth: the formidible guitarist with a killer live band, and the improvisatory musician operating on the fringes of space rock and free jazz." - 8/10 uncut
