chris forsyth

"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. Four tracks of free-wheeling minimalist rock balladry and anarcho-improv surrealism with a fearless approach to beauty in a deeply psychedelic landscape." evolving ear

"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." the wire

"a stunning guitar record... irresistably narcotic." strangeglue

"fucking killer on every level" foxy digitalis
