Some Good Things Coming Soon…

Yesterday was spent performing & recording a new video project inspired by the greatly misunderstood German Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.  The Good Four takes its name from an aphorism presented in Nietzsche’s 1881 book entittled The Dawn.  The video is over an hour & a half long & features songs from across Candle’s repitoire as well as a number of brand new improvisations.  The performance was captured via webcam.

Post production work will commence on the video shortly.  However, here is a sneek peak at the new video.  This brand new song is called Alhambra At Dusk & is a live improvisation recorded during The Good Four sessions.

SoUNDtrAckY SUNDAY 6: MONO

I’ve always liked Mono, but after reading this blog, I’m determined to delve deeply into their catalogue…

See You In The Shadows…

Through Shino's Looking Glass

MONO is a post-rock instrumental band from Tokyo, Japan and one of my favourite bands of the genre. The four-piece was formed in 1999 in the Japanese capital and has released 8 studio albums and numerous other releases (including a live DVD).

Every single one of their albums is amazing but it was in 2009 that they released what I consider their masterpiece and my personal favourite “Hymn to the Immortal Wind”, which transpires emotion and epicness like few records can. Starting by the epic record title, to the song titles and obviously to the songs themselves, every part of their art is like a beautiful, rare and precious magic stone capable of transporting the listener to the place of its dreams or to that sweet memory once thought forgotten.

As in most post-rock instrumental bands, the songs usually start by slowly captivating the ear with simple melodies (often piano and…

Fluttery Records

One of the wonderful things about Bandcamp is that you are able to discover new music by independant & little known artists.  Just the other day I came across this great Label out of Los Angeles: Fluttery Records.  They call themselves the “bright home of modern classical, ambient and post-rock”.  I must say, this tagline certainly describes the label perfectly.

Currently, Fluttery Records has thirty seven artists on their roster.  These artists come from all over the world & have one thing in common: they all create passionate music that pushes the bounds of what you would expect for rock and ambient bands.  If you listen to the Label’s Free Sampler Record – an album featuring tunes from twenty four of the label’s artists – you will hear what I mean.
