Chris Forsyth announces new album with the Solar Motel Band + UK tour dates

Chris Forsyth has announced that a new LP with The Solar Motel Band, his 3rd, will be released on August 25th. Dreaming In The Non-Dream is the follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed double album The Rarity of Experience, which The New York Times said was ” full of tense and dramatic jamming… [evoking] aspects of Miles Davis’s electric period and various kinds of rock-beyond-rock”. Dreaming is a tighter and briefer set, comprised of 4 songs, recorded in the fall of 2016. Forsyth says: “It was made very, very quickly and tracked entirely live with all the musicians in the room and just a few overdubs. I think reflecting on what was in the air while working on this – Brexit and then Trump’s election – I did not really have the patience or the desire to do something painstaking. I wanted to take that intensity that we were all feeling and put it on the record.”

NPR Music premiered the 16 minute title track, saying: “It’s concise and lean, almost speeding on an empty tank through a tireless groove that solders dusty Ohio punk to krautrock’s soothing repetitions, dipping from warped boogie into jittery synths, pausing for a brief, mellow reprieve and then gasping towards an arid and exhilarating conclusion.”

Forsyth has announced a UK tour around the albums release. Expect US dates to be announced soon and pre-order the album with a bonus live cassette in the No Quarter shop
