about

For their 2016 release, “Psychmonde” A Love Electric chose to keep the creative work in house, recording in the studio of drummer Hernan Hecht in Mexico City, Hecht producing and mixing, after previous ,NYC-tracked, records The Naked Beat (Danny Blume, producer) and Son of A Hero (Patrick Dillett, mix).

Psychmonde finds A Love Electric realizing what has thus far proved difficult, translating the energy and character of the band’s live show to record. For this, ALE turned to the community of musicians, some heroes to the band, some street performers, some Mexico City scene contemporaries, that has grown around the grown in its ambitious touring. Keyboard hero John Medeski joins on the majority of Psychmonde, playing B3 organ in his signature hook-heavy, dance -nducing rhythmic voice. Cult hero, Brazilian/NYC singer songwriter Arto Lindsay joins on the track “Barrio” for a wild attack percussive guitar part unmistakably his own. A young rap duo Clouser found performing on the streets of Jalapa, Veracruz, known as Metnal and Babi Sick, join on the proud self initiative anthem “Be That Mule”. 

Psychmonde, in its collective approach, is a block party in one of the most happening “barrios” one could imagine, and we are all invited.
