about

Love Spirals Downwards' sole CD single from 1996 has long been out of print, and this hypnotic trip hop remix of "Sideways Forest" hasn't been previously available digitally. The B-side instrumental, "Amarillo," was included on the band's year 2000 career retrospective collection, 'Temporal,' while the original version of "Sideways Forest" hails from the 1996 album, 'Ever.' The bonus track "Sideways Forest (Acoustic Mix)" was just unearthed from the band's vault, never having been available in ANY format until now.

From Projekt Records:

"After two albums of layered, interwoven textures evoking dreamlike states of consciousness, Love Spirals Downwards emerge with a distillation of their sumptuous sound on their single 'Sideways Forest.' Triggered by the group’s experiences playing live with a more stripped down, acoustic set, on “Sideways Forest” we hear the intrinsic beauty of simple, flowing guitar melody and a lone, singular voice, beckoning listening listeners to embellish the sound in their own minds. The “Quantum Remix” deconstructs these acoustic elements and rebuilds from the song’s foundation, adding sampled and electronic patterns, morphing them into a euphoric journey into trip-ambience. The disc concludes with the instrumental “Amarillo,” echoing themes hinted at on “Sideways Forest,” while uniting the group’s acoustic elements and flowing, open atmospherics."

Track Name: Sideways Forest
Sky’s the same as it always was
Nothing we do
So hard to keep anything
When you're expected to

This is the time when water stops
History dies with you
Like rings of trees in sideways forest
Forgetting

Lands change in the same ways
Like waves and words
Better not to watch at all
This changes everything

This is the time when water stops
History died with you
Like rings of trees in sideways forest
Forgetting

This is the time when water stops
History died with you
Like rings of trees in sideways forest
Forgetting
