Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation




Rocket Recordings (LP + CD)


La grande liberazione attraverso l’udire nel Bardo, una promessa dal Libro Tibetano dei Morti. Un omaggio, un’ispirazione. Una forma di ascetismo che rincorre strade ricche di gelatina narcotica.

Josefin Öhrn e Fredrik Joelson si ripercuotono tra i tentacoli di Tago Mago (Can) e il lusso di un motorik scandito da un tamburello. Figli di una cosmica josefinrivoluzione planano tra gli strumenti dediti all’elettronica, compagni di altri figli che esplorano cieli apocalittici in teutonica essenza. I riverberi ipnotici scandiscono lati leggeri, ineluttabilmente sospesi tra dream-pop e malleabili scelte shoegaze. La voce di Josefin sussurra diavolerie immaginarie con sommesse melodie che incrociano Margaret Fiedler ai tempi dei Laika e Alex Gehring quando trilla nei Ringo Deathstarr. Forse per raccogliere la sfida di “guardare le scarpe” con le chitarre Spacemen 3 o le avanguardie di tematiche caustico-occulte.

L’esordio di “Horse Dance” contava su un effetto trascinante dove luci glaciali e led abbaglianti pulsavano sicuri. Ora l’elaborazione aumenta il livello di coinvolgimento e scava nelle risorse convenzionali del gruppo, sino a dirimere nuovi substrati ritmici ricchi di minimalismo rituale. “Mirage” scorre su josefin4incantesimi regolari allo stordimento, focalizzando l’immagine speculare in qualcosa di molto lontano, una bolla seducente nella ripetitività. Le lande psichedeliche traggono sospiri corrosi in canzoni dai velluti percussivi allargati, un heartbeat contagioso.

‘Looking For You’ manifesta la chincaglieria tambourine a scosse elettrificate punk, rovistate da agonizzanti acidificazioni con orizzonti purpurei. ‘Rushing Through My Mind’ freme nel suo modello armonico ammaliante, il mantra ‘In My Trip’ che tramuta ‘In Madrid’ e si amplia con ‘Rainbow Lollipop’. Il canto francese, gli echi penetranti, il basso fuzz, una danza estasiante. Sono solo esempi liquidi di una precisa esortazione, grazie a liberation live2groove modernissimi e pieni di talento, dove quantificare l’esatta classificazione, sfugge ad una superficiale visione, ad un ascolto estemporaneo. L’album si muove in maniera irreale, come suggerisce il titolo, suoni, rumori stralunati, assonanze con inserti noise, soprattutto l’ossessivo tono ciclico, periodico, costante, un’infinita distorsione verso lo spazio, la dimensione.

    The great liberation through hearing in the Bardo, a promise from the Tibetan Book of the Dead. A tribute, an inspiration. A form of asceticism that chasing streets full of narcotic jelly.

    Josefin Öhrn and Fredrik Joelson resound among the tentacles of Tago Mago (Can) and the grace of a motorik generated by a tambourine. Sons of a cosmic revolution, they glide between the instruments devoted to electronics, companions of other sons who explore apocalyptic skies in Teutonic essence. The hypnotic reverberations mark light sides, ineluctably suspended between dream pop and shoegaze malleable choices. Josefin’s voice whispers imaginary wizardry with hushed melodies that cross Margaret Fiedler at the time of Laika and Alex Gehring when trilling in Ringo Deathstarr. Perhaps to take up the challenge to stay grounded with Spaceman 3 guitars or the avant-garde of caustic-occult themes.

    The debut “Horse Dance” counted on an captivating effect where glacial lights and dazzling led, throbbed sure. Now the elaboration increases the level of involvement and digs deep in the sound of the band, up to settle new rhythmic substrates, sources of ritualistic minimalism. “Mirage” flows on spells constantly into a stupor, focusing the mirror image into something very far away, a seductive bubble in repetitiveness. The psychedelic lands draw corroded sighs into songs by expanded percussive velvets, an infectious heartbeat.

    ‘Looking For You’ manifests vintage tambourine in some electrified punk shocks scoured by dying acidifications with purple horizons. ‘Rushing Through My Mind’ trembles in his enchanting harmonic model, the mantra ‘In My Trip’ which transmutes ‘In Madrid’ and expands with ‘Lollypop Rainbow’. French singing, penetrating echoes, fuzz bass, an ecstatic dance. Just examples of a specific exhortation, thanks to really modern and talented grooves to be investigated to prevent any superficial impression or impromptu listening. The album moves in an unreal way, as the title suggests, sounds, dazed noises, assonances with noise inserts, especially the obsessive cyclic tone, regular, constant, endless distortion into the space, into the dimension.
