Far-out psychedelic hippie sonics from The Cult of Free Love, a hard-to-define group of people playing together in distant North Wales. Love Revolution is as groovy and as trippy as you’d expect, bestowing good vibes to the listener through pulsating electronics and ‘mystic’ vocal chants. Transparent red splatter vinyl on Wrong Way Records.

If you’d told me at breakfast that today that I’d actually enjoy parts of a record that contains a song called ‘Guru Lover’ I’d have splurged my cornflakes over the napkin however this ‘mystical’ collective from North Wales do have their moments. It is said that these people have had past music history (so that’s what happened to the guy from Terris) and that they live in a cult. All of this probably means that it’s being done by a guy on a laptop in a Prestatyn back bedroom.
Aaanyway they create a dreamy sort of sitar drenched mystic psych which delves into the eastern dreamy dance pop of Black Star Liner whilst also having the sample heavy presence of a Death in Vegas. ‘Jaya Deva’ is the most beautiful track with a lovely swirling vocal, ‘You Are Obsolete’ kind of sounds like a kosmische Public Service Broadcasting with it’s voice samples sprinkled over banks of synths. The band are at their best on the aforementioned ‘Guru Lover’ where a melodic almost Boards of Canada bass line has some the Orb like synths and again ‘eastern’ samples placed atop.
This is hippie-tronics where you can smell the patchouli as it plays but despite a few clunks here and there it very often hits the mark.
