2019 saw the first performances by the full Garcia Peoples lineup, a six-person behemoth. With a stash of live recordings accumulating at the Live Music Archive, Garcia Peoples’ music is very much a living entity. Since the release of their previous two albums, songs have started to expand, jam suites have grown, and experiments have been undertaken. Garcia Peoples also back Philadelphia guitarist Chris Forsyth (an expanded Solar Peoples Band has hit double-drummer overdrive several times now), and have joined with guitarist Ryley Walker.
Chris Forsyth connects the dots between between anthemic art rock, chiming atmospherics, and motorik precision in taut compositions and mercurial improvisations that have earned the Philadelphia-based guitarist a unique reputation as a leading guitar stylist for jam and non-jam band fans alike. His newest studio album Evolution Here We Come, featuring contributions from Douglas McCombs (Tortoise), Marshall Allen (Sun Ra Arkestra), Steve Wynn (The Dream Syndicate), Linda Pitmon (Baseball Project), Tom Malach (Garcia Peoples), Stuart Bogie (Antibalas), and Ryan Jewell (Ryley Walker), saw release last August on No Quarter.
Local support from A. James Shelp and the Rolling Hills, Moss Folk and Milwaukee Psych Fest founder Andrew Shelp’s new musical outlet. Self described as “cosmic choogle”, the music tends to be hypnotic with its repetitive, rural, folky, country blues grooves.
