"Completely obscure private press from central Massachusetts, 1979. Candles Glow was recorded predominantly in the attic of an old farm house in northern New Hampshire. This is the same little corner of the world where Bobb Trimble made two of the best psych records ever, also around 1980. This albums not as out-there as Bobbs, but its completely unknown as far as you can tell and several tracks have got a nice rural psych feel with great, garage-y guitar work from Richard Thyng, as evidenced on "Morning Bird." Neil Youngs definitely an influence here, and the rest of the record is a lot mellower, with a few solo downer-folk numbers by Carl Hakansson and one really spooky and somber kind of chanted mantra a cappella track "Alone They Ride," credited to The Thyng-Hakansson Chorus." -Riverman
