Man, these Bandcamp days are positively spoiling the lot of us with Chris Forsyth live releases. After packing out my list of live highlights from last year, Chris jumps off 2021 quick with another live document pressed deep into the wax that’s proving indispensable. The set here shows a ravenous lineup of his Solar Motel Band, this time in trio formation with Sunwatchers’ Peter Kerlin and Jason Robira holding down the rhythm . The set from Cafe Oto lays waste to a version of “Dreaming In The Non-Dream,” the song that’s quickly becoming the watermark of Forsyth live releases, changing colors in the light with each recording. While the full set was longer than what’s presented here, the pressing offers up another Forsyth catalog cut and then balances the boil with two Neil Young covers, letting the trio map out a fried vision of Young’s most zoned visions. If you snagged any of the live platters from last year, then it seems you’ve got a trifecta to realize with this pickup. Always recommended. Not to be missed.
