CD Review: The Love Dimension "Create and Consume" 

Formed in the Bay Area of San Francisco, the band called The Love Dimension seems to encompass the whole spirit of the 1960s and their music definitely shows that. The band creates a sound that includes many different genres of rock and roll including straight-out rock, psychedelic rock, surf rock, even a little garage rock. The band’s many different influences create a solid sound that borrows from many different sounds but still sounds very cohesive…and just a little dated as the band’s sound feels like it could have fit in with the bands that were around at the time of Woodstock and just a little bit after that, as well…Read More

Joel Gion & the Primary Colours The Love Dimension Cellar Doors and Down Dirty Shake Play The Independent-1/22 

On January 22nd, The Independent will be hosting a psychedelic music showcase featuring Brian Jonestown Massacre's charismatic percussion extraordinaire, Joel Gion and his band The Primary Colours, San Francisco's premiere psych revivalist band, The Love Dimension, psych pop/post punk band, Cellar Doors and psych soul band, Down Dirty Shake. You don't see too many full local line ups play The Independent, so do your best to attend to ensure these bands have a successful show. The more we help local bands fill larger venues, the more the venues will be inclined to give Bay Area bands a chance to shine. 

Not only is the line up local, but the bands are seasoned and absolutely stellar. We love a big shows just as much as we love bands straight out of the garage. Make your way out to the Independent and have a blast!

Joel Gion & The Primary Colours round up SF psych favorites at The Independent 

We're off to a killer start here in 2015, from the Soft White Sixties’s ongoing Brick & Mortar residency to Lee Gallagher and The Hallelujah’s celestial, family-studded epic of a record release last Saturday. We move forward this week with Joel Gion & The Primary Colours at The Independent on Thursday, January 22. 

Drenched in the liquid light art of White Light Prism, Gion and his backing band -- relatively new in the neo-psych world which Gion helped pioneer -- will use their familiar blend of 1960s rock and roll and post punk to move the Divisadero Street music house along with a solid local lineup. Filling out the night with psych sounds of all flavors, San Francisco's psychedelic pop tripod Cellar Doors, the psych-soul rock and rollers of Down Dirty Shake, and the hip-swaying country psych shamans of The Love Dimension will join The Primary Colours for a night of astral surfing and sonic meditations. Bust out those diffraction glasses and get ready to get dizzy. This one's going to be weird.

Psychedelic Holiday: Late Additions 

I was pretty excited to discover this San Francisco band, who give a nod to Jefferson Airplane and The Doors, but filtered through Echo & The Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes and even a bit of Gun Club’s sinister post-punk twang. Don’t let their placing in this list fool you into thinking they’re also-rans. It’s just a testament to how much great psych came out this year.

The thing that strikes me about the opening to this album is how it manages to sound both hot and cold and the same time. There is an icey tingle infused by the warmth of the Californian sun as the West Coast melody kicks in. Thereafter, this opening track (the beginning of ‘Side X’), ‘And So Love Begins’, takes you on a trip, not only around the emotions, but around the many a varied influences of the San Franciscan five piece. There’s a whole lot of Love in there, there are the same sixties guitar licks that inspired The Buzzcocks in the late seventies, surely some Jefferson Airplane, and there is some surefire Doors keyboard in there too.  Read More

The Love Dimension, Create And Consume. Album Review 

In the blink of an eye a life can change. In the time it takes to hear an album by a band foraging their way carefully through the Californian minefield of abundant music, you are already finding your thoughts focused on making sure you get on a plane sometime soon, taking a trundle down any of the side streets of San Francisco and hoping that you will bump into a band member or two and clasping them firmly by the hand and without a second thought for so called British reserve; telling them that you love them so much that you want to re-start the psychedelic revolution with them.  Read More

XO for the Holidays 

The first of those annual freebies we all look forward to every year has arrived!  The 7th installment of XO Publicity's "XO For The Holidays" series has been posted.  It should be noted, here, that I love to jump the gun and XO has been known to add songs and tinker around a bit after the initial posting.  Right now, the "download album" button isn't working (so you have to download the songs individually) and I'm not sure they've tagged everything the way they want it, yet.  Read More

Beatniks. Jazz cats. Blues boys. Punks. Hippies. Artists.

Bohemia yesterday, and today. San Francisco has been the home for music and art for several decades. Scenes have died, and others have risen. The 1960s came and went, but the history and energy reverberates to this day.

A response to those who argue that there’s less of a music community in San Francisco, we united as the San Francisco Great Society, coining the name from the band preceding the Jefferson Airplane. Sparked by Pow Magazine, which has been involved in the documentation of the ever changing music scene of the San Francisco Bay Area since the late 1980s, we met with the artists that give life and sound to the city, and came together.

Inspired by the “Human Be-In” that took place in Golden Gate Park in 1967, we saw the need for ample representation and celebration of the music and arts of San Francisco yesterday, and today. We bring you the Gathering Of The Tribes.

Changes occur, but we always remember the San Franciscan legacy. We bring to you a celebration of music, art, and community. We also make a bold statement. San Francisco is here to stay.
