Welcome to Northern Star Records

Northern Star is a record label dedicated to psychedelic, independent and underground sounds. The label launched back in March 2006 with the first volume of the now legendary Psychedelica series which featured an eclectic selection of the very best in contemporary psychedelia from across the world.

Northern Star has consistently grown over the last 10 years, a catalyst for true independence, teaming up with labels and over 200 bands from across the world, building up an evergrowing network of like minded souls. Coming from a lineage of labels such as Creation, 4AD, Rough Trade and Factory, Northern Star compilations have placed well known cult acts alongside a host of unknowns and have been a launchpad for many.

The response to Northern Star has been phenomenal - one of massive public support and great critical acclaim garnering rave reviews from across the world. Northern Star has become a truly worldwide phenomenon. Independent bands from all over the planet have united under the Northern Star umbrella. Northern Star - This is our revolution and we want you to be a part of it!

The Cult of Free Love

The Cult of Free Love is a musical collective from the mystical landscape of North Wales. Relatively little is known about the band or it's members, although it is understood that this is not their first dip into the murky, shallow waters of the music industry. What is known however, is that this, their debut album, 'Love Revolution’ follows on from last summer’s debut single and independent hit ‘Love Is All There Is.' It's rumoured that the collective are an actual living, breathing cult, however this has yet be confirmed.

‘LOVE REVOLUTION’ comprises 8 journeys exploring unchartered territories designed to probe the inner reaches of your mind. The album is due this summer on vinyl and will be the third ever release on Wrong Way Records. It is suspected that this is the work from musicians belonging to the infamous Northern Star Collective.
