We are quite excited to share some brand new music with you! “Try to Forget ” — the first new song to be released by Lovespirals since their January 2010 album, Future Past — is featured on the brand new 5 Years of Chillin’ compilation. This 1 hour collection of chilled tunes celebrates the 5 year anniversary of The Chillcast With Anji Bee music podcast. In addition to the new Lovespirals track, this compilation also features the debut of Anji Bee’s new song, “Put Some Music On,” produced by Ryan Lum of Lovespirals.
Lovespirals’ pals and Chillcast regulars, MoShang, Chill Factor-5 and 7 Day Visa, also contributed new unreleased tracks to this compilation. Previously released tracks — some hard to find — by Adam Fielding, Mr. Meeble, and The Grooveblaster, Ernesto + Markus Z, Under, Science for Girls, Sunburn in Cyrpus, Steve Kilbey + Martin Kennedy, and Karmacoda (who collaborated with Lovespirals on a modern version of the classic Americana spiritual, “Motherless Child”) round out the compilation. A big special thanks to Robert Rich of Soundscape Productions for mastering the album.

Anji and Ryan of Lovespirals have selected the Grand Prize winner and Honorable Mention of the Sony ACIDplanet Remix Contest for “Feel So Good”! We know that 40 some producers have been anxiously awaiting our decision since December 28, while we’ve been sorting through all of their entries. Turns out there were several really solid mixes and plenty of great musical ideas! Once again, we thought we’d make our winner’s announcement with a podcast, so we could share a bunch of our faves with the fans and give the producers our thoughts on their tracks. The remixes are presented in no particular order, aside from the winner and runner-up; the Grand Prize Winner is presented first and the Honorable Mention is presented last. The grand prize winner will receive a copy of ACID Pro, 5 ACID loop libraries plus all 4 Lovespirals albums on CD, and will be featured on an upcoming new remix single for “Feel So Good.” Hopefully several other mixes from this list will be included in that, as well. Details on that soon… Thanks again to all the very talented producers for taking part in this fun competition, and thanks to Sony for hosting it. Congratulations to Yumenomado for his fantastic “Film Noir Mix”!!!

“Happy Holidays” is the first all-original holiday song released by Lovespirals vocalist/lyricist, Anji Bee. Co-written with Lovespirals partner, Ryan Lum, “Happy Holidays” is a deceptively bittersweet pop nugget filled with heartugging disco-infused violins, funky bass and wah-wah guitar, with a relaxed house beat and a hint of cool wintry nights wafting through. Bee’s warm, enveloping vocals pleasantly recall Tracey Thorn (of Everything But The Girl) and Karen Carpenter with their laid back yet passionate delivery and personal holiday message.
Podcasters and Internet Radio DJs are free to include “Happy Holidays” in their shows. Check out Anji Bee on Mevio’s Music Alley (AKAPodsafe Music Network.)
