Chris Forsyth is a lauded guitarist, composer, and bandleader whose widescreen art-rock, fusing taut compositions and mercurial improvisations, has earned him a reputation as one of the most distinctive and critically acclaimed guitarists working today. In 2013, he assembled The Solar Motel Band, who quickly developed a reputation as an incredible live act, provoking comparisons to visionary artists such as Television, The Grateful Dead, Popol Vuh, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and Richard Thompson.

Despite psychedelic leanings, Forsyth’s music always trains toward concision — plenty of space, yet never slack— in tunes that erupt with startling swiftness, then spend the rest of their quick-burning, time-elastic lives teasing multiple moods and patterns out of deceptively simple materials. In 2016 he released the double LP The Rarity of Experience (No Quarter) to universal raves. Pitchfork called it “a near-perfect balance between 70s rock tradition and present day experimentation,” NPR Music named Forsyth “one of rock’s most lyrical guitar improvisors,” and the New York Times calls him “a scrappy and mystical historian… His music humanizes the element of control in rock classicism (and) turns it into a woolly but disciplined ritual.” No Quarter will release the new Solar Motel Band album Dreaming In The Non-Dream on August 18.
