Its that time of the year… that special time when Lovespirals bust out their one and only holiday song! You may remember our contribution to the Projekt holidays series, Excelsis, recorded way back in 2001; a cover of John Denver’s wintry song “Aspenglow.” If not, then you are in luck! We’ve just made this track available as a free download in multiple audio formats over on our new Bandcamp page. Stream “Aspenglow” in full or download it FREE in your choice of high quality mp3, AAC, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, or ALAC.
“Aspenglow” was officially released via CD on the 2001 compilation, Excelsis Vol. 3, and the 2002 Hot Topic compilation, A Dark Noel: The Very Best of Excelsis.
Lovespirals first Future Past single, “Shine” has won the Garageband Reviewer’s Pick Award for Best Female Vocals in the Alternative Pop genre for this week. This is an ongoing contest judged by site users, primarily musicians who are also participating in the contest held by this unique i-Like owned music site. Songs are judged in an anonymous fashion, with the reviewer having no information about the track other than the soundfile itself until after they have rated it and posted their review comments. Kieran Moore of Ireland wrote, “Quite a haunting song. Nice mood with the Rhodes, and the female singer has a sexy voice which works really well when layered. Reminds me of the French band Air. Good sound, well done.” Visit Lovespirals page on Garageband to read all the reviews thus far, as well as to stream or download “Shine” for free. You can also check out more Lovespirals songs, including the multiple-award-winning “Love Survives,” which won Track of the Day and Track of Week twice each, and currently holds #16 Best Female Vocals of All Time in the Electronica Genre.
Matt Rowe penned a very positive review of Lovespirals’ latest release for the Music Tap site. It reads, in part:
I’ll say it now, Lovespirals is an undiscovered diamond, cut to a many-faceted perfection in their new album. Future Past is their masterpiece work to date. With Manzarek-like keyboards, a masterful bluesy guitar, and an angelic voice, the 11 tracks that you’ll find on this magnificent surprise are not to be missed.
He goes on to comment about the performances of Ryan and Anji individually, even encouraging the duo to pursue solo endeavors outside of Lovespirals. You’ll have to read the full review on Music Tap.
