At the behest of Robert Fischer, Ryan and Anji sat down for a rather long wrap up show for the end of 2008. Lovespirals discuss their use of Twitter, Ryan’s continued tone quest including the Red Witch Deluxe Moon Phaser, Fulltone Mini Deja and Voo Doo Lab Micro Vibe pedals, the Nash Guitar “Do Not Play” list, favorite Will Ferrell films, Anji liking Paul Rudd, David Lynch,reliced guitars (see Jonathan Wilson AKA Greenwich Village Custom Guitars, see John Mayer’s Fender Custom Shop guitar), the persuit of perfection, their love of BB King and Robert Cray‘s tone, working on a new song (“Feel So Good”) with old lyrics, airplay of “This Truth” remixes by Damien.S and The Grooveblaster, the new Anji Bee Ringtone Set on MacMost, a recent Chandeen interview on Michael Floyd’s site, and more.
Just in time for the holidays; the gift of free Anji Bee ringtones! I met up with MacMost vidcast host, producer and blogger, Gary Rosenzweig, at the New Media Expo earlier this year and we got to talking about music. I was tickled when he said he’d like to feature me as the first in a series of podsafe musicians for his popular MacMost Ringtone collection.
It was fun creating loops of songs from my musical catalog in various electronica genres. I made a mix of ambient vocal passages, lyrical snippets and spoken word from my collaborations with Bitstream Dream, Chukimai, Kou Chou Ching, The Grooveblaster, Lovespirals, Moosefrog, Snoblind, and War-N of Hungry Lucy. Hope you find something ya dig!
Los Angeles artist Anji Bee, known for her smooth vocals and music podcasts, can now be heard whenever someone calls you on your iPhone. She is featured on the latest set of ringtones from MacMost.com, the Mac news, tutorial and iPhone content Web site.
MacMost began providing free iPhone ringtones earlier in 2008 as an alternative to pay-per-song downloads at the iTunes music store or illegal music downloads elsewhere. There are now 15 sets of ringtones in the MacMost collection. They feature everything from holiday sounds to short, original musical creations.
“One of the ideas we had for the free ringtones was to use them to promote artists,” said Rosenzweig. “We knew Anji Bee from her work as a podcaster and thought it would be perfect to begin with her.”
The Anji Bee Ringtone Set features sections of Anji’s work with various other artists, as well as her podcast theme and vocal recorded specifically for the ringtone set.
