Chris Forsyth, ‘Experimental & Skilled’ : #NowPlaying : NPR


Marshall Allen lends his saxophone squawk and synth squiggles to rock and roll right here and there — U2, King Khan and Caribou, to call just a few collaborators — however it warms the guts to see the Solar Ra Arkestra chief be a part of a fellow Philadelphian, a number of generations eliminated, on a rubbery, thud-buckin’ ham-jammer. “Experimental & Skilled” opens Chris Forsyth‘s Evolution Right here We Come with one more iteration of his streets-to-the-skies rock band. Allen’s Digital Valve Instrument bubbles over bassist Douglas McCombs’ stuttered Can-funk and Ryan Jewell’s ethereal drumming, opening up an in-the-pocket paradox of effervescent oddity and earth-rumbling gyration. Ceaselessly on the seek for new spaceways, Forsyth’s guitar foil this time round is Tom Malach of Garcia Peoples, a fellow journeyman in cosmic choogle — and their riffs and solos spit and spiral with a telekinetic grin. Let’s rip off the knob and boogie, y’all.
