Kultur Magazin give Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation's Sacred Dreams a 9.5/10 reveiw
We have the hypnotic psychedelica of Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation, the deep electronic spaciness of Gramm and Ethik, some timeless house grooves from Francis Harris and the Toy Tonics crew, the Balearic swells of Ghost Vision, and lots more.
So, prepare yourself for a journey through time and space, and let us begin…
Sacred DreamsJosefin Öhrn + The Liberation’s third album Sacred Dreams is the sort of thing any good mother would warn you about; trippy, dangerous and addictively good. Out now on Rocket Recordings, the London-based band’s new LP is full of fuzzy riffs and acid-drenched rock jams. Feel The Sun opens the record with some squelchy synths, a driving groove and Josefin’s whispered lyrics to form a track which gets the adrenaline flowing from the off. After the heady electronica of Honey Slumber, I Can Feel It merges I Feel Love style synths, loose guitar licks and rising vocals on a song which is going to sound like explosions going off in the brain when heard live. From here, Desire is deep and sexy pop music with a gothic heart, Hey Little Boy sounds like The Velvet Underground at their most languid, Baby Come On shows how rock music doesn’t have to be intricate to excite, Caramel Head is gorgeously hazy, while the dirge-like groove of Let It Come is worth the price of admission alone. Recalling the psychedelic majesty of fellow Londoners Toy, Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation are a band tailor-made for these fucked-up times. 9.5/10.
