The Love Dimension Release 'Surf Heart' Video 

http://www.antimusic.com/news/16/October/02The_Love_Dimension_Release_Surf_Heart_Video.shtml

The Love Dimension have released a video for their track "Surf Heart." The song comes from their latest EP release "Freakquency Mind Space Continuum." 

The new video for the instrumental clip features archival footage of San Francisco in the 1940s and 50s. "Surf Heart is the first instrumental to be released by the Love Dimension," singer Jimmy L. Dias explained. "It is about following your heart and dreams. That may not always be easy and there might be rough waters sometimes. 

"However, when you are present, in the zone, persistent, committed and do the work...well...then perhaps you could put yourself in a position to enjoy the ride when things in your life finally do line up and align. This music video was directed and edited by Mer Zandifar of the Muse Department. This is the second video that Mer has created for the band. 

"When we discussed doing the music video and collaborating, she thought the song represented a celebration of the archetypal memories in San Francisco. Thus making the video like a vision of surfing the waves of change and remembering to respect the land, our ancestors and the sacred elemental beauty of a city that transcends space and time."

Debut: The Love Dimension, “Surf Heart” { Diggin’ the vintage. }

By Meredith Schneider

While San Francisco’s psychedelic rock collective The Love Dimension – comprised of Jimmy L. Dias (vocals/guitar), Celeste Obomsawin (vocals/percussion/flute), Devin Farney (keyboards/vocals), Michael Summers (bass), Robinson Kuntz (drums) and Amy Jane Cronkleton (vocals) – released their newest EP Freakquency Space Mind Continuum earlier this year, we are pleased to premiere the music video for their upbeat song “Surf Heart”. Made up of vintage footage of San Francisco from the early 20th century, this video makes you feel like you’re on vacation, chasing the wild life down the streets of the big city. And by “wild life,” I – of course – mean perfectly coiffed hair, vintage cars, and crashing waves in the bay. The footage is the perfect overlay to a beautiful instrumental, a song we could easily see ourselves swaying to on a lazy beach vacation. 

Or in our kitchen. Because that’s what’s going to happen. 

Jimmy had a bit to say about the track and its accompanying video. 

“Surf Heart” is the first instrumental to be released by The Love Dimension.  The original title of the song was actually “House of the Heart Shaped Wave”.  It is about following your heart and dreams.  That may not always be easy and there might be rough waters sometimes.  However, when you are present, in the zone, persistent, committed and do the work…well…then perhaps you could put yourself in a position to enjoy the ride when things in your life finally do line up and align. 

This music video was directed and edited by Mer Zandifar of the Muse Department.  This is the second video that Mer has created for the band.  The first was for the song ‘True Love Comes ‘Round Again’ off the ‘Forget the Remember’ album. 

When Mer and I discussed doing the music video and collaborating, she thought the song represented a celebration of the archetypal memories in San Francisco.  Thus making the video like a vision of surfing the waves of change and remembering to respect the land, our ancestors and the sacred elemental beauty of a city that transcends space and time.” – Jimmy L. Dias 

**NOTE: The band has also featured many other talented musicians such as Jacob Landry (guitar), Joe Miller (drums), Kevin Grapski (bass), Jeremy Walker (guitar), Ryan Erickson (bass/vocals), Eric Amerman (guitar/keys/drums),  Sonny Pearce (drums), Tommy Anderson (bass), Kyle DeMartini (guitar), and Sean Carney (guitar) just to name a few.

CD Review: The Love Dimension “Freakquency Space Mind Continuum” 

From http://rockandrollreport.com/cd-review-love-dimension-freakquency-space-mind-continuum/
by Matheson Kamin


The San Francisco-based band The Love Dimension is a musical ensemble that has gone through many different formations over the span of its history. The Psychedelic Rock band is steeped deeply in the sound of the psychedelic music produced in the 1960s. So much so that when you listen to the band’s catalog of music, you feel like you’ve immediately have been transported back in time. There is nothing like listening to the innovators of Psychedelic Rock from back in the 1960s. However, the music from The Love Dimension is as authentic as you can get…for a band that is 4 decades removed from that time period. 

The band has gone through many different members and formations throughout the history of the group. But the band has maintained the same quality in its sound. That has to do with singer/multi-instrumentalist Jimmy Dias. Dias ensures that the sound will remain no matter who is currently in the band. 

With that said, The Love Dimension is celebrating the release of their newest EP entitled Freakquency Space Mind Continuum. On this release, Jimmy Dias took the reins completely and created the entire album on his own. Dias added all instrumentation and vocals to every one of the 5 tracks that make up the new EP. While created by one person, Freakquency Space Mind Continuum sounds as genuine and full as anything released by an entire band of musicians. 

Freakquency Space Mind Continuum begins with the track “Together Again”. Like much of the band’s music, the track immediately takes the listener back to the sixties. It contains just the right amount of musical inspiration from that time period. With this track, Jimmy Dias shows off his talents as a multi-dimensional musician. Every note feels as genuine as if an entire group created the track and not just one musician. For instance, the guitar parts on the track blend together to create a layered effect. That layered effect adds a lot of texture to the track. For the rest of the instrumentation, the drums and bass parts feel just as genuine as the guitar on the track. “Together Again” is one track that allows Jimmy Dias to shine as a musician. 

The new release from The Love Dimension continues with the song “When Soul Love Begins”. The previous track features a very strong retro feel to the music. However, “When Soul Love Begins” finds Dias adding even more of a psychedelic feel to the music.  Dias moves the song even further into the sound of the sixties. The biggest and most obvious psychedelic influence in the song comes from the addition of the electric sitar. The sitar and the electric guitar add just the right retro feeling to the music.  The electric guitar and electric sitar compliment the lyrics that also feel rather dated. And while dated, the lyrics and music together will give fans of the sixties just a little reminder of what that time period sounded like. 

Freakquency Space Mind Continuum continues with the instrumental track of “Surf Heart”. For “Surf Heart,” Jimmy Dias stays in the retro state of mind for yet another track. The music brings to mind surf gods like Dick Dale, The Ventures and other instrumental artists. These artists helped to shape the style of “Surf Heart”. Although there is that influence in the music, Dias creates a song that stays away from copying any specific playing style. Because of that, the surf rock on the song is unmistakable as to the style of the music. However, the track is not too overly influenced by any one particular entity. 

The next track of “Get Real Wild” finds the music gaining a lot more of a groove. The track ends up being that track on the release to get up and dance to. “Get Real Wild” would have been easily featured on any of the dance shows back in the 60s had it existed back then. The song then transforms into a more acoustic version of itself as “It Could Be a While.” The additional minute and a half continues the song before bringing the EP to a close. 

The Love Dimension’s Freakquency Space Mind Continuum once again shows off the talents of Jimmy Dias. Even more so this time ‘round as he created the 5-track release himself. Every musical element on the release came from one individual musician. The newest release from The Love Dimension proves itself to be solid from the first note up to the final note.

SIMGE Survey: Getting To Know The Love Dimension // Watch “Together Again” 

by Mike Mehalick from 'Speak Into My Good Eye'

For the San Francisco-based artist Jimmy Dias, life has offered several callings. In duly following, Dias has found enlightenment in studying to be a shamanic healer and through music. 

It was through the latter pursuit that Dias came to found the psych-surf musical collective, The Love Dimension. Earlier this summer, the band dropped a new EP, Freakquency Space Mind Continuum, which was led by the driving, mystical single “Together Again.” 

To go along with a view of the video for “Together Again,” we had Dias take the SIMGE Survey to get to know him a little better. Check out the video below and keep up with more from The Love Dimension here. 

Name: Jimmy Dias 
Band: The Love Dimension 
Instrument(s): Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Drums (played all the instruments on this latest EP. However, I usually have a great group of musician friends who help record 
and play live shows.) 

What sound(s) do you/your band make? 

A cross between late 60s psychedelic, 90s grunge and annoying instrumental elevator music. 

If you could have anything fall from the sky what would it be and why? 

A suitcase filled with plane tickets and other helpful resources so I could take the Love Dimension and all my music friends on tour around the world to places like Europe, Australia, Asia, South America and more. 

When I was a kid I used to love to… 

Play Nintendo (the original NES one) for hours and days and weeks until all my muscles (except for my hands and eyes) started to atrophy. 

An embarrassing phase in my life was when… 

Continuing to play video games every night as an adult as a way to escape my dissatisfaction with boring day jobs. Good times in a way, but wish I had spent all that time mastering the guitar, drums or a musical instrument. 

The 1st album I purchased: 

Having trouble remembering my exact timelines and order of stuff with all the crazy interdimensional shifting and galactic realignment going on right now but I think it was a cassette of Beastie Boys’ License to Ill. I had some other tapes right around that time but they were copies of tapes that friends made for me of Nevermind and Surfer Rosa. 

The last album I purchased: 

The Doors – Live at the Bowl 68 on vinyl. 

My biggest insecurity: 

When I am not wearing my glasses I get awkward in public because people’s faces are blurry and I can’t tell if they are looking at me or if it is someone I know and maybe they’ll think I am ignoring them because I don’t know it is them. 

If anyone out there wants to gift me a few thousand dollars maybe I could get Lasik surgery. 

You can easily win me over by… 

Buying me a slice of pizza and a bucket of peanut butter cups. 

Sometimes when I feel overwhelmed or stressed

I listen to chakra balancing music on youtube because it’s calming and relaxing and it puts me into a trance. 

After a show people compliment me most on my… 

Outfit. Come on people, Am I really that bad of a musician that all you notice is the clothes I am wearing. Guess I need to practice more and dress down. 

Something most people don’t know about me is… 

I am also a healer and have studied with various shamans, healers and spiritual teachers over the past 10 years. It has been helpful with music as there is a lot of energy moving back and forth from the band to the audience at shows. 

The band (artist) that altered my perception on life is

Nirvana because it inspired me to start playing drums (my first instrument) and writing songs. I had never heard anything like that before. It really struck a chord inside of me that hasn’t stopped buzzing since. It opened up the doors for me to explore all kinds of indie and punk rock music. 

What a cool experience it would be to relive the first time you heard a certain album or song. Musical mystical magic. 

If not for music I would probably… 

Have left this physical body and transferred my consciousness into a vehicle that would allow me to create and share music.

What are your favorite song lyrics? 

I was trying to think of a cool answer for this one and the words that kept popping into my head were: 

“Row, row, row your boat 
gently down the stream 
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily 
Life is but a dream” 

At first, I was resisting that and thinking I can’t write that. Then when I sat with it and realized the simplicity and wisdom that is embedded in those words, I detached and allowed it to be. It really hits the point of the impermanence of everything and going with the flow and enjoying life while you are here in this 3D reality hologram. 

It’s tough times right now but if you keep your vibration and frequency high instead of lowering it into fear, then eventually the snowball will gain enough momentum and the enlightenment of humanity and the golden age will flourish. 

Thank you so much to SIMGE for spreading the word about the Love Dimension and to everyone reading this. I wish you many blessings and good fortune. And when you have a moment please send out some thought forms into the ethers so TLD can magnetize and manifest coming to play our music live in a town near you! 

Peace, Love and Rock ‘n’ Roll!

Freakquency Space Mind Continuum by The Love Dimension; self-released 

The ghost of San Francisco past looms large these days. Our beautiful city is caught in the midst of an identity crisis — it seems, at times, in danger of coming apart at the seams. That's why The Love Dimension's latest EP, Freakquency Space Mind Continuum, feels like such a nice surprise. It's a short, sweet, delightfully fun listen, a summery, surf-y, psychedelic revision of a time when life in San Francisco wasn't so complicated. 

"Short and sweet" are the key words here: The EP is barely 15 minutes long. But that's OK: The tunes are so catchy and easy on the ears they encourage repeat listens. 

The EP opens with "Together Again," its best and most memorable tune. It's a blast to listen to, a fun, playful, psychedelic pop ditty featuring stick-in-your-head, surf-inspired guitar licks, perfectly retro harmonized vocals, and simple, sing-along lyrics. 

"When Soul Love Begins" sounds like a classic garage rock tune. "Surf Heart," much as its name implies, owes its existence to Dick Dale. "Get Real Wild" and "It Could Be Awhile," a song in two parts, is my least favorite on the EP, but it's still remarkably catchy, to its credit. 

Fuzzy, hazy, lo-fi production is the rug that really ties the room together. You won't find any new ground broken on Freakquency, but sometimes unabashed nostalgia is all you need.
