Biography

Love Spirals Downwards was begun in the late 80’s by multi-instrumentalist and producer, Ryan Lum, but didn’t truly take flight until the addition of then-girlfriend, Suzanne Perry, as vocalist in 1991. Two of their demo tracks (”Mediterranea” and “Forgo”) were featured on the From Across this Grey Land 3 compilation, garnering international attention from ...

Editorial Reviews

Review

omance! Despair! Trauma! Sounds good to you? It sounds good to me too and mixed together by Love Spirals Downwards it sounds even better. Suzanne Perry and Ryan Lum once again create a world without boudaries, taking in subtle sounds and sharp senses, morphing them into music and presenting them back for our listening pleasure. Seductive and sad, full of longing and lust, this album can't help but satisfy your cravings for music that captivates with a hit of decay wafting about the edges. Like visiting ancient ruins on a sunny day, Ardor captures your imagination and it's up to you what you let them do with it. My suggestion: surrender to them! --B-Side Magazine

The second album from melancholy bunch Love Spirals Downwards and a splendid affair it is too. Suzanne Perry's heavenly vocals mix with a lushly produced backdrop of melody and ambience for fifty gorgeous minutes of sound. There's nothing taxing about this music, nothing particulary experimental, but where there is I could happily listen to it for years to come. With the added bonus of the last track "Tear Love From My Mind" penned by Mr. Rosenthal himself, this is simply introspective, intelligent "pop" (and I use the word reservedly) having more than a hint of sadness buried within it. Exquisite. --Music from the Empty Quarter

Soaringly romantic and hauntingly brooding, Ardor practically celebrates and elegant brand of Euro-cool. -Cary Darling --The Orange County Register

Product Description

Like standing under a waterfall: guitar trickles & swirls like a mist around you; as warm cascading female harmonies envelop you, washing you in beauty and melancholy.

Digital remastering by Ryan Lum in 2007. Oisin and Niamh and I Could Find It (Instrumental Mix) recorded and mixed during the original 1993 sessions. Write in Water (Live) recorded at The Troubadour, Los Angeles, CA, 9/21/1995.

"The second wave of aural resplendence from the duo of vocalist Suzanne Perry and guitar neoromancer Ryan Lum." - Industrialnation

"To truly appreciate this album, just close your eyes and get enveloped in all its beauty. -Bizarre U.K.

An album that is compelling, evocative and very, very beautiful." -Singapore Vogue

5.0 out of 5 stars inspiring May 1, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
ardor is beautiful. inspiring also comes to mind. from the opening track to the last track, love spirals downward moves into the core of your ability to hear, and offers the most beautiful sounds to bring on a sense of love, hope, and desire. Tracks like "will you fade", write in water, and my personal favorite, "if i could only find it by chance", all are angelic. This cd is a journey through the most beautiful sounds ever made. Don't hesitate.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent but not their best June 23, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
love spirals downwards' second full length, ardor, is more of what one would expect from the projekt label: that is to say, swirly keyboards, beautiful angelic vocals, and haunting, melancholy lyrics. a little easier to digest than the darker and more experimental black tape for a blue girl, love spirals downwards tred on similar ground to the cocteau twins and english dream pop. their first record "idylls" is a bit better, yet this is a good representation of what this band has to offer. ryan lum creates the atmospherics interacting with suzanne perry's gorgeous voice. stand out tracks are "subsequently", "depression glass", and "avincenna". also includes love spirals downwards' cover of an older black tape for a blue girl song, "tear love from my mind".

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth and haunting October 30, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Love Spirals Downwards is a new find for me, although they have already come and gone (sadly). I am a Cocteau Twins fan since the 80's, and I am suspicious of anyone who is compared to the twins--it is a comparison that few can live up to, but I can totally understand how the comparison is made here. Vocals are lovely. No, she doesn't sound like Elisabeth Frazer, but she is lovely--soft, nuanced and ethereal. The guitars do sound much like classic CT, with heavily treated sound effects and gentle strumming. No harsh drums here, so think Victorialands or even Milk and Kisses as a touch stone, but make no mistake, LSD is their own band. Definitely a nice listen after a long day, will lull you off to a magical dream land. I'm goign to work my way through all of this band's work.
