Cone magazine reviews Goat / Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation Bristol show

It reads:

Bristol’s SWX was the unanticipated host of a mid-week feast of infectious tribal-inspired jams, led by Swedish cult ensemble Goat and their ambient associates.

The everyday music-goer in Bristol may agree that stepping into the building formally known as Syndicate for a night of Swedish psych-rock may seem a tad askew. The venue, re-branded as SWX, is now hosting a diverse array of touring acts, drawing in perhaps a more comprehensive crowd than its predecessor. What was formally a riotous student haven and grime nights has now become Bristol’s big-city venue, boasting a high quality audio and visual experience to almost 2,000 punters. The change comes amidst an already growing number of re-brands and closures facing Bristol’s iconic music scene...

Raven sings the Blues reviews Mirage by Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation

It reads:

Upping the motorik attack from their first record with Rocket Recorings, Josefin Ohrn + The Liberation plummet into a vortex of swirling drums and swarms of buzzing keys on Mirage. From the opening strains of “The State (I’m In),” the record breathes heavy and damp like a vaporizer filling the mind with gauzy strains of psychedelic fog. Everything is dark and creeping in The Liberation’s world, a thundering bass reverberation pounds through the mind, darting between guitar lines like so many trees in a spectral forest. Those guitars burn, when they emerge, with an intense and alarming temperature that makes their presence felt. Ohrn pushes her psych journey almost to the edge of the dance floor though, finding that fine line between trance and drone, especially on lead single “In Madrid.” Here, she works repeated phrases and circular playing into a kind of semi-conscious drug haze that folds colors over on themselves in prismatic, shimmering sheets...

Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation choose 5 Tracks for Sonic Magazine

Roughly translated it reads:

On Friday, the new album with Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation, one of the country's flagship regarding all things Spaceway and psychedelic rock. Towards the end of last year, specifically in Sonic # 85 , sat down with Pierre Hellqvist Josefin to talk favorite records (photo: Lina Haskel). A text that feels especially appropriate to reprise now that Sonic just released an entire issue where a lot of artists talk precisely favorite records. 

Play loud. 

Such request should sit glued to "Horse Dance ', the debut album with Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation. The potential of the disc repetitive psych rock increases for each additional upward adjustment påvolymskalan. There are attacks feels, that's attacks burned...

Get into this makes Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs – Sweet Relief one of it's tracks of the week

It reads:

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs – Sweet Relief
A fierce, cathartic endeavour from Rocket Records for you here; Pigs (x7) explore their raw, organic emotion and transform it into something brutal, something destructive, but something truly real.

Sweet Relief is a gurgling blast of sludgy rock that has taken a hit from the same bong as stoner doom legends Sleep, while worshipping Ozzy Osbourne and co. along with a possible Faustian pact just in case.

Let your hair down, prepare to sweat and delve into the tremendously evil licks of Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs.
