Songs we Love: Dreaming In The Non-Dream

Our bud Laura Snapes wrote about and premiered the new Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band LP Dreaming In The Non-Dream over on NPR. Great read and some cool insight from Chris about the record and where it came from.

The album is released on 25th August... yep, the very day the band come to town to play Sea Change.

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

Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band - Live at Trans​-​Pecos

An excellent live recording has just surfaced of Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band playing live at Trans-Pecos in Queens, NY. The show was recorded back in April (Recorded and produced by acidjack) and features the first new cuts from... a new album? Well, that's what we're all hoping on anyway.

"I recorded this set with onstage Schoeps MK5 microphones into a warm-sounding Aerco preamp, plus a soundboard feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!"

NYCTaper have the whole show up for streaming on their bandcamp. Listen here.
