Cd Title: Windblown Kiss (CD)
Reviewer: Julie J.
The new Lovespirals CD, "Windblown Kiss", takes on an ethereal jazz feel with the use of saxophone, slow drumbeats, and several different guitars. The vocals by Anji are lush and melodic, creating a soundscape of their own. One thing I like about this CD is that it has a very diverse feel. Many of the songs feel like something you would hear in a small lounge club (and I mean that in a very good way.) "Windblown Kiss" is very soulful and warm sounding, yet quiet and mellow -- which is great -- and Lovespirals kept this feel consistently all the way through the album. "Our Nights", is probably the most upbeat track, with additional instruments coming in such as congas and shakers. "You Girl", has a slightly more rock feel, with an added twang to the acoustic guitars. This song has the hardest feel, even though it¹s still very mellow. My favorite track, "Dejame", is written all in Spanish. I think this was a great idea as Anji sings it so well, and with a great accent. (Not to worry, there is an English translation included if you don't know Spanish, but fortunately I do, so as a reviewer it was a real treat to hear!) This song would be great for a slow dance. "Dejame" has a really Spanish flavor, adding a little culture and spice to the album. (You will also hear a little French and German used in the lyrics as well.) Overall, this CD is full of romantic, sweet and lush harmonies that all balance out.
Buy this CD!
