CD Review: The Love Dimension “Create and Consume”

Formed in the Bay Area of San Francisco, the band called The Love Dimension seems to encompass the whole spirit of the 1960s and their music definitely shows that. The band creates a sound that includes many different genres of rock and roll including straight-out rock, psychedelic rock, surf rock, even a little garage rock. The band’s many different influences create a solid sound that borrows from many different sounds but still sounds very cohesive…and just a little dated as the band’s sound feels like it could have fit in with the bands that were around at the time of Woodstock and just a little bit after that, as well.

The Love Dimension is a band that consists of Jimmy Dias – vocals, guitar; Celeste Obomsawin – vocals, percussion; Devin Farney – vocals, keys; Sonny Pearce – drums, percussion; Tommy Anderson – bass as well as Kyle DeMartini. Having already released several albums worth of music and several standalone singles as well, The Love Dimension is currently promoting their newest release. The 2014 album from The Love Dimension is called Create and Consume.
