Chris Forsyth in The New York Times, touring with Heron Oblivion
Chris Forsyth went all out with ‘The Rarity of Experience’, his double album with The Solar Motel Band and high praise has deservedly been streaming in. The New York Time recently wrote that Forsyth is: “a certain kind of rock guitar player: a stickler with limitations, a scrappy and mystical historian. He cares about tone and song form, and invests heavily in the long solo. But he is not a virtuoso, and he keeps aggression and chaotic noise close at hand. His music humanizes the element of control in rock classicism, basically. It turns it into woolly but disciplined ritual.” Read the whole review here.
Forsyth and the band will celebrate with two album release shows, before heading out on the road with kindred spirits Heron Oblivion later this spring. Full list of tour dates here:
