February is just around the corner & I have to admit that I’ll be spending the first weekend of FAWM winter camping with Cub Scouts. It should be a fun weekend, give or take the fact that the forecast highs for the weekend are sitting around the -22°C mark. Oh well, at least there’s the cabin to sleep in.
As for FAWM, I feel like I’m running out of time in my pre-FAWM prep. I’ve reorganized my studio setup & I have yet to get everything up & working the way I want it. This might turn into an ongoing experimentation throughout FAWM – which might inspire some new material.
Ee ghad… It has been almost a year since anything Musical has been brought forth from my muse. And FAWM 2018 is just over the horizon so now my mind is turning back to musical pursuits. I wonder, will my Muse follow?
Available now for the low price of Five Canadian Dollars, you get five new Candle tracks which were written during February Album Writing Month 2015.

The mad genius that is Captain Vulpine! returns to haunt your dreams & waking moments with more tales of debauchery, woe, sea shanties & even a demon being released from the Pale. Argentavis Exponential is the third album from this maverick Portland songwriter (well, under this pseudonym anyway…). Written as part of the 2015 edition of February Album Writing Month, Argentavis Exponential drags the listener into the Captain’s wild world.
I’m starting a new vein of posts whose purpose is to share the most interesting new songs & sonic experiements available. This first post in this new series will explore some remarkable avant-garde & experimental gems from this year’s February Album Writting Month challenge.
To start off, here are three great tunes that are the result of collaborations between two great FAWMers: Fuzzy & Mosley.
