The Love Dimension
The Love Dimension
"The Love Dimension is an ever expanding sacred psychedelic music group from San Francisco (Originally from the lost city of Atlantis) that creates sonic architecture for the benefit of all sentient beings across the multi-verse. The Love Dimension is currently using their musical sound waves to open up hearts and spread the vibration of love on Planet Earth to assist in the quantum shift of the collective consciousness of humanity.

With influences that span the musical universe, The Love Dimension is a psychedelic blues garage punk country surf band whose shows have become an amazingly eclectic mix of music's past and future. Shining light through the spectrum of love and the inner journey, The Love Dimension successfully rocks the audience out of their minds, into their hearts, and onto the dance floor."

Free Moral Agents is a collective of musicians brought together by Isaiah "Ikey" Owens (keyboardist from The Mars Volta) as a means to expand the sounds of what started as a solo recording project. In the spring of 2006 the band in its present and permanent line up started playing shows around Long Beach and Los Angeles.
"There was a time, before I put the record out, that I wasn't playing in Mars Volta anymore, and I had just bought a bunch of recording instruments. I'd always wanted to record my own record but never did, so [Free Moral Agents] really started with just me. I knew J, who was actually my girlfriend at the time's brother-in-law, who did poetry and sang and stuff, so I got together with him. This is before the vinyl. I was working at this record store and started talking to my friend Jeff Harris, who it turns out, was really good with ProTools, so I added him to the group. He's really a producer and doesn't really play with us live, but he's very much responsible for the sound of the record. I knew Mendee [Ichikawa] for several years, and we had worked on and off, but I knew we needed a female element to the group, so that's basically what Free Moral Agents is right there. As far as the music goes, it started as my project, but these people who I know I can trust, really bring it together."
The group is currently finishing its 2nd full length entitled The Honey in the Carcass of the Lion for Gold Standard Laboratories. In April 2009, Owens released two live tracks for free.

Buzzmutt
Buzzmutt
As active members of San Francisco's music community, Scott Franklin, Jesse Olswang, Eric Alonzo, and Chaz Anton found in each other an instant musical connection, recording their first song together the first time the four ever found themselves in a room together. Like a chemical reaction each member a catalyst for the others creative drive. Logging in hours and hours of recordings over 2011, they have selected a batch of songs for a record to be called Static in the Minds Eye, chapter 1.

Static in the Mind's Eye, Chapter 1 is the first full length album from SF's experiemental noise rock band Buzzmutt. Lyrically, The songs in this album unfold from one into the next as a cryptic tale, a modern, urban Hero's Journey. Musically, the album itself is also experienced as a journey, complete with dark and winding paths, a few thunder storms, strange characters, some pleasant surprises and at least one or two alien beings.

The journey begins from a place of shedding the past and moving forward. Themes of newness and higher awareness take us further into the story as things get more complicated; exploring ideas of language and dreams, until we are delivered at the end of the sonic adventure- perhaps, seeing and hearing things just a little differently than before.

Reflected in the album, as well as in Buzzmutt's live performances, Franklin's Vocals call out to us from the ocean of sounds, offering fragments of poetry to guide the journey. Jesse and Eric's intricate and pounding rythm section allows scott and chaz to explore the elements of feedback; noise; and chaos, employing circuit bent electronics and exploring the elements of feedback all weaved within and around buzzmutt's unique style of tightly structured songs.

Most of this album was recorded in early April 2011 in Emerville, CA by Varun Kejriwal. The rest of the album was recorded by Jesse Olswang at Off Deep End Studios in San Francisco, where the band pieced together and meticulously layered the richly textured sounds of the album over an 8 month period.

Mastered by Varun Kejriwal.
Released July in 2012.
