Intensity Ghost by Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band


Intensity Ghost is a wonderful LP full of ambient music that draws you in. The 5 song Lp was released on October 28th by Pennsylvania based band Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band. This is the bands second work, they previously released Solar Motel (Paradise of Bachelors) in 2013.

The music in Intensity Ghost is technically masterful and pleasing to listen to. It is repetitive enough to blend into the background but if you pay attention there are dissonant sounds that build and swell to create tension that draws you in. The LP opens with The Ballad of Freer Hollow, which features a steady drum beat and repetitive dissonant sounds. The song is 11:25 min long though, and while it is a good song it is repetitive and and long. The Ballad of Freer Hollow would work better if it wasn’t the first song on the LP. Intensity Ghost’s second song, Yellow Square, interrupts the sleepy sound introduced by the first song a steady bass and drum beat. An electric Guitar threads in-between the two other instruments really wonderfully. The song builds slowly and it is still repetitive in nature. I Ain’t Waiting, the LP’s third song, is melancholic and it has a wonderful intro. The song builds with a chord progression that repeats and increases in speed .The sound expands and gets more complex while retaining its original simple nature. Overall the LP is very good, although it is rather repetitive.
