Lovespirals have just released a cover of Pink Floyd’s song, “Welcome of the Machine,” from their classic 1975 album, Wish You Were Here. The song was recorded as a contribution to the 2nd NPF tribute collection, Vol. 2: Return of the Sons of Neptune. This 3-disc set is available for free download in SHN format via the torrent area of this Pink Floyd fan group’s site: neptunepinkfloyd.co.uk. You will need to create a (free) account for access to the torrent, but it is well worth it if you are a fan of the Floyd. Otherwise, you can simply download a 192k mp3 of Lovespirals’ track at myspace.com.lovespirals, for a limited time. Enjoy!
UPDATE! Many years later, the band have made this track available on their Soundcloud page for free download in glorious 256k mp3 format. The NPF site took down their torrent ages ago due to pressure from Pink Floyd’s legal team (BOO!)
Wow! When it rains, it pours. Suddenly lot of stuff the band has done with other people are being released all at once. The Pink Floyd song we recorded last year just came out today, and earlier this week an interview we did during our last show in Mexico went online, and another one we did last month here in Long Beach went online. Also noticed that Podshow finally put up some promotion for my Chillcast podcast on their site. Wonder if any other things might be coming to fruition that I haven’t heard about? Oh, I know what I’m still waiting for, our interview for the Paul & Lynn Show from a few months back! I think Ryan and I are going to have to do another Chillin with Lovespirals podcast this weekend, there’s so much news!
Take a listen to a recent interview with Ryan and Anji on the Jason Knows podcast, Episode 24. This intimate 24 minute feature focuses on the band’s writing process and includes rare demo and live audio from the band, as well as album cuts. This interview was conducted after our show at The Blue Cafe here in Long Beach, CA, which is also where the live tracks were recorded.
Ryan and Anji talk about their recent trip to Phoenix to play a show with Mr. Meeble, discuss the US Meth addiction situation, announce a special podcast listener sale, answer fan email, and more in this “coming of legal age” episode. Includes some road trip audio!

I just set up a Flickr account for the band and uploaded some pix from our Pheonix roadtrip and show. I mentioned I’d put up something on our new podcast that talks about our Phoenix trip and show… Now you can check out some pix from the show, the hotel, and our drive. Fun times!

Scoot on over to Dave’s Lounge to check out his latest podcast… I suspect ya’ll might enjoy it!
Considering doing another remix “contest” soon. Several people have asked to remix a track from Free & Easy recently, so we were thinking we may as well make the files available to a large group of folks and see what comes of it! Still not sure which track would be the best one to work with, but probably one of the more upbeat ones like “Deep in My Soul” or “Trouble” would be the most fun. Perhaps we can add our fave mixes from this contest with our fave remixes from the last contest to do a digital release?
Lovespirals vocalist, Anji Bee, is the hostess of one of Podshow Podcast Network’s hottest new podcasts, The Chillcast. Drawing on her experience as a college radio DJ and her many indie band contacts, Anji releases a weekly half-hour dose of chill music in styles ranging from Downtempo to Deep House, Trip Hop to Dream Pop, Electro Lounge to old school Jazz and Blues. Adam Curry raves about Anji’s “dulcet tones” and Chillcast listeners agree, she has the sexiest podcasting voice around! Come check out the show at chillcast.podshow.com
Had a nice little getaway this weekend. Decided to make a mini-vacation around the Phoenix show, since we’ve been working so hard for so long. Between the new CD and my new podcast, I really haven’t had any time to just chill. And how can Lovespirals music be created without any chill time? Not that we worked on any music, but having time to cool down and process a bit is really important. I’m sure Ryan and I will be chatting a lot about our Arizona experiences in our new Chillin podcast, so be sure to check out the next episode for all the stories!
Anji and Ryan of Lovespirals chat about their upcoming Cinco de Mayo show with Mr. Meeble in Pheonix, last weekend’s show in Long Beach, an eBay auction of their posters, fan email, Second Life, and more.
