Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band
Dreaming In The Non-Dream
yet more transcendental guitar witchcraft from the virtuoso, whose succinct record takes us on a trip through the seams of the universe, fluctuating between intricate restraint & cacophonic instrumental blitzes.
he has always united the homely with the astral, the abstract with the visceral in his ‘Solar Motels’ & ‘Intensity Ghosts’. There’s something different about ‘Dreaming In The Non-Dream’, though. There’s a fresh economy involved here, a sense, strange as this is to say about a record with two songs longer than eleven minutes, of not a note wasted. Despite psychedelic leanings, Forsyth’s records have always trained toward concision — plenty of space, yet never slack— but these tunes erupt with startling swiftness, then spend the rest of their quick-burning lives teasing multiple moods & patterns out of relatively simple materials. “highly charged workouts from a 21st-century guitar hero” 8/10 – uncut.
