Evolving Ear

Chris Forsyth
EE23 - LP

oringinally released September 2009
reissued December 2011 on Family Vineyard



Dreams was recorded and mixed between 2007 and 2009, mostly in Brooklyn, but also in Glasgow, Kansas City, and Waldron Island, Washington, and features contributions from Forsyth's Peeesseye bandmates Jaime Fennelly (synth on one track) and Fritz Welch (drums and vocals on another) as well as the trumpet work of Nate Wooley and organ, saxophone, and snare drum overdubs by Phantom Limb & Bison's Shawn Edward Hansen. 

What you get: four tracks of free-wheeling minimalist rock balladry and anarcho-improv surrealism with a fearless approach to beauty in a deeply psychedelic landscape. And it's all wrapped in a matte black sleeve, each one stenciled wth three layers of white, yellow, and orange spray paint. Protected by a plastic outer sleeve, naturally. Not bad, eh?

Tour pressing of 100 copies.

"It's enough to signal Forsyth's arrival as an erudite and farsighted guitar stylist, maping a path that's hip and scholarly in equal measure." - Daniel Spicer, The Wire

"Fucking killer on every level. 9/10" - Foxy Digitalis

"a stunning guitar record... irresistably narcotic." - Strangeglue
