There’s a new song streaming in our Lovespirals MySpace player. It’s the brand spanking new Hungry Lucy remix of our “Motherless Child.” 4 bands were invited to remix our rendition of this classic anonymous blues song, including Hungry Lucy, Karmacoda, MoShang, and Beauty’s Confusion. We hope to release a digital single on iTunes with all 4 remixes, plus a special Lovespirals remix, sometime over the next 2 months. Stay tuned to lovespirals.com for more details!

Anji and I spent this past weekend mastering our upcoming album, Long Way From Home, with Robert Rich in his studio in Mountain View, California. In addition to all the great locally grown food and wine we were treated to and the fun time we had hanging with Robert, the mastering came out really well. I mean really well. I can’t believe how nice it all sounds. This is quite exciting as mastering for me in the past has been primarily about trying to deal with audio deficiencies that were in my original mixes. I guess I’ve gotten better over the years, as there were very few such issues. Instead, Robert was able to focus on perfecting the sound, which he did an amazing job of. Thank you Robert (if you happen to read this)!
Sorry for the month long lapse, we have been crazy busy getting ready to release the new album! We talk about that album progress, as well as our upcoming mastering session with Robert Rich, photo sessions, and cover art design, plus the Lovespirals CoverCast on Student Loan Radio, Anji’s recent work with Moosefrog, Pownce VS Twitter, the SoundExchange controversy, Creative Commons, Ryan’s new Tumblelog at ryanlum.net, nominating The Chillcast with Anji Bee on PodcastAwards, starting up the Lovespirals email list, and more – plus we share the Hungry Lucy Mix of “Motherless Child” in it’s entirety!
Ryan and I guest hosted Christopher Penn’s Student Loan Radio CoverCast #2 this weekend, and no — we didn’t talk about financial aid! The band were given the opportunity to share recordings of songs written by John Denver, America, and Pink Floyd, due to Financial Aid Podcast‘s recent acquisition of an ASCAP/BMI podcasting license. Woo hoo! Check it out, and if you enjoy it, please go comment on Chris’s blog to let him know!
Anji contributed vocals and lyrics to two tracks on the latest Moosefrog EP, Adrift, on the Creative Commons based label, Lo-Kiwi. The entire 7-song release – including Anji’s tracks “New Life” and “En La Oscuridad” – are available for free download in zip file or individual mp3 format, and both podcasters and Internet radio DJs are more than welcome to include the songs in their playlists.
