This California duo''s lush, sensual songwriting embraces numerous genres creating a unique blend of slow-burning Blues, Bebop Jazz, Flamenco-spiced Folk Rock and Western-tinged Dream Pop on this first full length album. "Windblown Kiss" focuses on beautiful melodies based around former Love Spirals Downwards bandleader Ryan Lum''s dreamy acoustic and electric guitar playing combined with jazzy chanteuse Anji Bee''s lovely and versatile vocal work. The album also features special guests Sean Bowley (of Projekt Records'' Eden) on guitar & vocals, and Doron Orenstein (of Subliminal Records'' Monkey Bars) on saxophone. Romantic, spiritual, and utterly heartfelt, "Windblown Kiss" envelopes one in a soothing dream-drenched world, full of nostalgia and beauty.
Embraced by their Projekt Records fanbase as "Gothic Jazz" in the vein of Angelo Badalamenti & Julee Cruise''s work for David Lynch''s "Twin Peaks" series -- or to dark Trip Hopsters, Portishead -- yet hailed as sweet "Twee Pop" akin to Jewel or The Cardigans by the English press, while still compared to Sade and Astrud Gilberto by the Jazz community - the only sure description of Lovespirals'' "Windblown Kiss" is that there are no easy comparisons to make. There''s simply no pigeonhole to place this CD into!
Just when listeners think they know what''s coming next, Lovespirals throws another curveball, from the Pink Floyd-esque guitar and saxophone blues of the opening track, "Oh So Long," to the Lum classic, Spanish-languged "Dejame," to the island infused, Santana-esque, chill tune, "Our Nights", and on to album closer, classic 50''s jazz styled lounger, "I Can''t See You," -- not to mention two gritty Western-tinged duets with Tim Buckley-esque guest star, Sean Bowley -- "Windblown Kiss" truly mixes and matches the bands musical influences into an unexpectedly heady concoction.
Different to be sure from Lovespirals'' fare past, such as the their atmospheric drum ''n'' bass EP, "Ecstatic," and different from Lovespirals fare to follow, this release strips down the electronic elements and builds up their song structures using organic sounds harkening back to earlier Love Spirals Downwards material, but with that smooth, sensual Lovespirals touch.
