I was just thinking about how funny it is that many of our reviews have claimed that our album is largely unlike any of the Love Spirals Downwards albums, aside from one song — but that “one song” is always a different song! Some claim the song “most like LSD” is “Swollen Sea,” others “You Girl,” or “He Calls Me,” yet others claim it’s “Windblown Kiss,” or “Dejame” (which is the one I figured would be cited). So, if all of these people are to be believed, then actually about half of our album sounds pretty darned close to Love Spirals Downwards. Yet, still, most people seem to be in agreement that Lovespirals are really nothing like LSD. How can that be true?
The one thing that really bugs me is how many people want to tag it as a Jazz album, when it so obviously isn’t. I mean, come on — none of the songs listed above are even Jazz songs, and neither are the two songs with Sean, or really even “Oh So Long,” since that’s Blues. “Our Nights” is not truly Jazz, either. In fact, there is only 1 true Jazz song “I Can’t See You,” and we saved that ’til last. Sheesh! Throw in a smattering of saxophone riffs and Jazz guitar chords and suddenly you’re JAZZ . PUH-LEASE!
