He is joining the ranks of the late Lou Reed, Sonic Youth, Robert Quine, and Yes among others int he fraternity of Sonic Guitar. Solar Motel, his recent album, is some kind of master work. It rides the lines of static, psychedelic, minimalism, and avant -garde  in a seamless way, that few can achieve. Forsyth’s ambitious takes on Indian inspired and Sonic Guitar is spotless and virtuosic in every way.

Forsyth is clearly a talent and his most recent excursion in sound seems to bring his collaborations  and experience to a head.

You tear it down! Forsyth and his band do this like champions.
