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?
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.
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.
The Titan Spring Single is almost ready to be released. But for those of you who want to hear the new edited version of the track before the official release, drop by Candle’s Reverbnation Page & listen to the track (along with an assortment of other tracks – mostly demo versions of album tracks that are not available elsewhere).
After a few delays (sorry) & a few technical glitches (damn technology), Candle’s seventh full length studio album was released yesterday (I know, this blog post is a day late, but this whole project has ended up behind schedule… 😦 ). You can download the entire album for a small fee (in Canadian Dollars, so if you’re paying in another currency it’s probably even cheaper!). However, to get even a better deal (because converting to Canadian funds isn’t a deal enough) – get over to Candle’s Bandcamp site & download the Eagle Landing Promo Single & get a coupon for 50% off the price of Moonscapes. Could this deal get any sweeter?
Stay tuned for the official press release for the album as well as information regarding the new single from the album which includes a bunch of exclusive B-Sides.
