Music on the Moltz Terrace: Basic and Erica Dawn Lyle

Editor’s Note: The following article is derived from officially released information, published with few or no editorial changes. The Greylock Glass  occasionally provides our readers with such content if the information is factual in nature, and requires little to no interpretation or analysis, often when original reportage would not provide additional relevant information.

Evocative of an imaginary electronic desert blues soundtrack, Basic is a new project of Philadelphia’s Chris Forsyth (guitar), Nick Millevoi (guitar, drum machine), and Mikel Patrick Avery from Natural Information Society (percussion/ electronics). Inspired by the aesthetics of American guitarist Robert Wolfe Quine and the Fred Maher record of the same name, Basic blends the raw energy of rock with the atmospheric depth of electronic experimentation.
