Review of 'Forget The Remember' by The Love Dimension

All too often bands get pigeonholed as being this or that.  When that happens it's usually the band that suffers the most, allowing it to become a self fulfilling prophecy.  But when a band takes a ton of influences and puts them in a blender, magic can happen.  That's the case with the new release "Forget The Remember" from the band The Love Dimension.  The influences are right out of the band's San Francisco backyard and embrace the Rock and Roll of that city in its heyday. The album is full of little bits of inspiration from Country Joe McDonald and the Fish, Jefferson Airplane and even the Grateful Dead.  It's familiar but original.  It is country, rock and psychedelic all at the same time, and they are able to successfully recapture the time when country was an important ingredient in rock and roll. One of the coolest aspects of the recording is a certain looseness reminiscent of recordings from Big Brother and the Holding Company, and this lets the music breathe. It was the second track on the album "Bound To The Sound" that first drew me in.  The drive, blended with guitar twang and a masterful chord progression, quickly becomes a song you want to hear over and over. The band has another album scheduled for release next month and if this is any indication, I can't wait.  Read More
