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. These are songs that did not fit into the Moonscapes concept album & reflect different recording & compositional techniques then the usual Candle Modus Operati.
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.
A quick update to let you know that I am trying to finish up the mixing & mastering of my latest Studio Album Moonscapes by the end of the week. My projected release date for the album is Monday, May 25th – the anniversary of JFK’s famous speech before Congress where he first proposed to put a man on the Moon. Stay tuned for a free preview of the album & some fan exclusives to go along with the release.
Just released on Layaway Records, Candle’s new Stand-Alone Single Paradesian Fields is now available. Pick your price to download in various formats. If you want this single for FREE, you can choose that as well. Enjoy the trip through the fields of the distant planet of Paradesia & leave me a comment below. Let me know what you think of the new song & stay tuned for a sneak peak of the new studio album Moonscapes which is in post-production right now.
I’m putting the final touches on the EP of Spoon Guitar experiments. I’ve entitled it Cuillères Intergalactiques & it has been a lot of fun playing around with this new methodology. In fact, I have expanded the experimentation to more dinnerware. I used a bowl to create an ethereal loop that begins the fourth song on the EP: To Where The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon. I am quite pleased with the results so far.
I have one final song to finish for the EP, one which I hope to record tonight. This means I should be able to release the full EP for the enjoyment of all before the end of the week. So keep checking back here for the latest updates & maybe a sneak peak at my upcoming Moonscapes album.
