I know things here at Candle Experience Dot Com have been really quiet for the last couple of months. Sorry about that. But I have gotten side-tracked on a bit of a historical exploration. It all started when my buddy Jim (of Hellenica & The Golden Tombs) asked me if I had any recordings from our days when we played together in the Winnipeg experiemental-rock band Hellinacopter. Well I did.
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.
Until next time,
See You In The Shadows…
“Man is but a bridge to the Übermensche.” This is the statement being made with Candle’s latest single: Übermensche, released today on Layaway Records. Übermensche is the second single from Candle’s sixth studio album: Vibrations, which was released in the fall of 2014. The song & its B-Side were written in February 2014 as part of the annual online song writing challenge February Album Writing Month (http://www.fawm.org). Ken Ficara, a fellow FAWM participant, writes of Heartbeat: “The very pretty little piano melody over the wall-of-drone is extremely effective. This is quite a track.”
Darby Spicer’s ongoing experimental space rock project Candle fuses psychedelic & progressive rock stylings with ambient sounds & textures that create emotion driven soundscapes that only need to be experienced to be understood. Darby composes various pieces built on the idea of feelings that can be provoked in the individual listener. It is his intention to stir up true emotions through the medium of music & philosophical poetry. Like a candle burning brightly, he wants to show the contrast of light & dark in the greyest area of human existence: that of the soul.
Übermensche & its B-Side, Cær Sidi (Ancient Sources Remix), can be downloaded from Candle’s Bandcamp page: candle.bandcamp.com; where listeners can name the price they feel the download warrants. The download also includes album artwork, printable liner note collector cards, CD label, as well as bonus material.
