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.
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.

Stay tuned for a free preview of the album & some fan exclusives to go along with the release.

I played around with a bunch of effects in Jeskola Buzz & was able to create some really otherworldly & spacey tones. After recording these songs, I had this sudden brainstorm to release them as an EP of demos.
These are the demos that resulted from this process.
What does it take for the Individual to achieve their Higher Self? This is a question asked of the listener of Candle’s latest studio album Vibrations, released today on Layaway Records. Written in February 2014 as part of the annual online song writing challenge February Album Writing Month (www.fawm.org), Candle’s sixth studio album is the result of a new method of composing music.
