Chris of the Chillout Scene just gave Lovespirals new album, Future Past, a very positive review this week. The US-based blog is centered around the music and culture of the Chillout genre, including new album reviews, favorite YouTube videos, recent finds from music discovery services including Last.FM, Pandora, Blip.FM, and LaLa, as well as suggestions for Internet radio and podcasts. Chris also maintains a Chillout Scene Facebook page and Chillout Scene Twitter account (mirrors of each other) you can follow to keep up with site updates and cool daily music suggestions, as well.
After giving a breakdown of his favorite tracks (“Home,” “Love,” “Meanwhile Irreplaceable Time Flees/Insignificant,” and “Sinking”,) Chris sums up his thoughts on the album:
Overall, I really like Lovespirals’ sound on this album, especially since it is similar to one of my favorite chillout artists, Zero 7. I think Ryan’s bluesy guitar playing is what makes them unique and makes them even more interesting than Zero 7 since they don’t just stick to acoustic guitar parts and electronic drum and bass tracks. Anji’s vocals also set Lovespirals apart from other artists as even the quieter parts are nice and smooth, rather than whispery. She makes her voice appear so delicate that it could fade away if any quieter, but it remains nice, smooth, and chill. Check out Future Past right away HERE.…I highly recommend it!
