verticalman56 Hard to describe why I like it so much. I just like lounge music and Anji Bee has a way to make it sound really good. I feel the musical arrangements are well thought out as to what sounds good and her voice is great. I want to marry her! lol! Favorite track: Love Will Turn Your Head Around (Lovespirals Mix).

Jason Painter After many tremendous Lovespirals albums, Anji brings us an individualism that is pleasantly surprising. Now we have two distinctive sounds from two entities that draw from each other. I hope that this new branch continues to bear new fruit. Favorite track: Got All I Need.

Love me, leave me Devour me, deceive me Is that the way that this is going to be Between you and me You say you want me, I’m sure that’s true But how long will it be until you’re through There’s something I don’t trust in your eyes You speak to me with sugar coated lies Love me, leave me Devour me, deceive me Is that the way that this is going to be Between you and me You say you want me, I’m sure that’s true But how long will it be until you’re through There’s something I don’t trust in your eyes You speak to me with sugar coated lies Love me, leave me Devour me, deceive me I know you’ll leave me alone Love me, leave me Devour me, deceive me I know you’ll leave me alone (repeat 3X)

Saudade 03:27

Foolish 03:46
I really can’t explain What’s come over me I’m still not sure if it’s All just a fantasy But yet I feel like this Was meant to be Even if it seems like Impossibility Am I foolish? To believe this is real Can I trust the way I feel? Will I wake up one day Will I wake up one day Will I wake up one day and say I was foolish? (x2) I was foolish In my life I have never Fit the mold To be different you must Make your choices bold Coz in this world it seems Our future’s bought and sold When you find something good You must grab a hold Am I foolish? To believe this is real Can I trust the way I feel? Chorus Foolish Foolish Chorus I was foolish I was foolish

All the world is wonderful Filled with people beautiful So many things to see and do So many dreams to make come true Still, there’s one thing to understand Its all illusion through and through Reality like grains of sand Slipping quickly through our hands It’s a sleight of hand; conjuror’s trick A puff of smoke and it’s gone Don’t you get caught up this parlor game When all is said and done You’ve been fooled

Mi Amor 03:59
Hay tantos Motivos Porqué le amo Cómo puedo decirles todos Su risa Sus ojos Sus brazos Que me sostiene apretado Mi amor, mi amor, mi amor Te quiero Mi amor te quiero Te quiero (repeat all) chorus repeat to end

I've been thinking about my life Wondering why its so filled with strife Things should be easier than this That is my wish -- oh yes, it is Let's get away Just for today Try to forget (x2) When I lay in my bed at night Wondering why nothing's going right Things should be easier than this That is my wish --oh yes, it is Let's get away Just for today Try to forget (x2) Divided by the seasons Divided by the tides The days become the reasons And the meanings of our lives (x2) Try to forget…

Perfect Boy 03:17
Angelic in stature Graceful and thin Raven black hair Pale silken skin Serious brow Classic strong chin Twinkling eyes And a childlike grin The most perfect boy See you in cafes Out on the street See you in clubs In the smoky heat I get so upset I look at my feet I know deep inside One day we’ll meet The most perfect boy I found out your name And your number, too But now that I know What am I gonna do Give you a call saying “Hi guess who And oh, by the way I think that I love you” The most perfect boy “There he is now, he’s coming my way. Oh god, what am I gonna say?“ Angelic in stature Graceful and thin Raven black hair Pale silken skin Serious brow Classic strong chin Twinkling eyes And a childlike grin The most perfect boy

Buddhahood 04:40
Know ye not that this life is deceit? Know ye not that enjoyment is illusion? Know ye not the world is a passing show? Know ye not that happiness is a dream? Know ye not that praise and blame are insubstantial? Know yet not that appearance is the mind itself? Know yet not that the mind itself is Buddhahood? Know yet not that the Buddhahood is the body of truth? When ye reflect, all appearances are compacted out of mind Contemplate the mind by day and night From contemplation of the mind comes beatific vision Abide in that beatitude Know yet not that the mind itself is Buddhahood Know yet not that the Buddhahood is the body of truth Know yet not that the mind itself is Buddhahood Know ye not that the body of truth is truth itself When ye meditate upon these things assiduously Though ye do not succeed in rooting out desire and hatred Know that whatever appears is your own mind-stuff And that the mind itself is void If ye dwell in wisdom inseparably All the observances of the law, oblations, and the like Are thus perfectly fulfilled Know yet not that the mind itself is Buddhahood When ye reflect, all appearances are compacted out of mind Know yet not that the Buddhahood is the body of truth Know yet not that the mind itself is Buddhahood Contemplate the mind by day and night Know ye not that the body of truth is truth itself Know yet not that the mind itself is Buddhahood From contemplation of the mind comes beatific vision Know yet not that the Buddhahood is the body of truth Know yet not that the mind itself is Buddhahood Abide in the beatitude Know ye not that the body of truth is truth itself Know yet not that the mind itself is Buddhahood Know yet not that the Buddhahood is the body of truth Know yet not that the mind itself is Buddhahood

about

A labor of love 3 years in the making, Anji Bee’s new album, 'Love Me Leave Me,' is her first solo foray into the long play format. Though closely associated with her duo, Lovespirals, Bee has long collaborated via the Internet with artists including Karmacoda, Beth Hirsch, The Grooveblaster, Moosefrog, and Rom di Prisco of Bitstream Dream. Bee has found online collaboration to be a fulfilling experience, yet secretly felt that given the opportunity for a more hands-on approach, she might have improved upon these long-distance productions.

And what better setting than in Chillcuts Studio, which Bee built with long-time producer/partner, Ryan Lum? Utilizing her own vintage 70’s Neumann U87 mic (with a Stephen Paul mod), a new Bricasti M7 reverb, and the producer most intimately familiar with her creative process, Bee has created her best work to date. While not a Lovespirals album, Lum’s presence is certainly felt, but Bee has taken the lead, layering and effecting her vocals to new levels of lush perfection - most notably in her heavenly rendition of the lesser known Bitstream Dream song, “Perfect Boy.”

The title track, “Love Me Leave Me,” is arguably her most popular song to date, and as Dave’s Lounge has pointed out, “this brand new recorded version chills the song out even more than the first time.” Leading up to the launch of the album, Bee released a series of 5 remix singles of this tune, from an international group of producers including Mr. Alfa, Daniel Knoxville, The Morphism, and Urban Punks exclusively on Bandcamp.

In addition to new renditions of some of Bee’s favorite collaborations from the past decade, she also co-wrote several new songs for the album with Lum. The sultry album opener, “Got All I Need,” recalls the sophisticated, laid back sound of Blue Six, as does “Try To Forget,” which Bee first premiered on her ‘5 Years of Chillin’ compilation released in 2011 to celebrate the anniversary of her popular electronica music show, The Chillcast. "Saudade" is an homage to Bee's love of Brazilian music, and with chorus backing vocals by Lum, recalls the work of husband & wife duo, João & Astrud Gilberto.

Over 11 tracks Bee flows from warm and sensual deep house to icy cool trip hop and back again, exploring every aspect of love; desire, satiation, longing, disillusion, contentment -- until finally the album closes with an unexpectedly danceable disco house version of her popular rendition of a Buddhist text by Milarepa, seemingly turning her back on the game of love altogether with its opening lines:

Know ye not that this life is deceit?

Know ye not that enjoyment is illusion?

Know ye not that the world is a passing show?

Know ye not that happiness is a dream?
