The Quietus reveal the first track from forthcoming Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation album 'Sacred Dreams'
London-based psychedelic stalwarts Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation are proud to reveal their third album 'Sacred Dreams' which is released on 26 April.
Listen to the first track to be revealed, via The Quietus here: The Quietus
Continuing to dive into the deeper waters of experimentation, ‘Sacred Dreams’ is both a musically hefty amalgamation of reverb drenched space-rock and retro centric electronics, as well as an emotionally cathartic release for the band, marking a new direction and fresh approach.
Since their critically acclaimed album 'Mirage' was released, Josefin and writing partner Fredrik have relocated from Stockholm to London and have created a new Liberation around them - this new band consists of the powerful and intuitive assemblage of musicians; Maki (Go Team), Patrick C Smith (Eskimo Chain), Matt Loft (Lola Colt) and Ben Ellis, who’s worked with both Iggy Pop and Swervedriver. ‘Sacred Dreams’ was largely recorded at Press Play Studios (King Krule, Fat White Family, Yves Tumor, Stereolab, High Llamas and many others) run by Andy Ramsay of Stereolab, who also produced and even programmed his non synced drum machines adding a lot of inspiration to the album.
'Sacred Dreams' is available in several different formats. You can preorder the special 'Yellow & Black Colour In Colour' vinyl direct from the Rocket Shop here: Bandcamp
There is also a ltd 'Indie Exclusive 'Blue/Black Swirl' version, and a ltd 'Orange' vinyl version, both will be available from your local record shop.
