Kandle: 'When My Body Breaks'

We knew there was new music in the works from Kandle, but we weren't ready for this.  'When My Body Breaks' was released earlier today and it's a stunning return from one of the most enchanting voices in music.  'When My Body Breaks' also features and incredible lineup of guest musicians, but it's certainly best described by Kandle herself:

"When My Body Breaks is a somber drifters tale written on the road. A verse on a stormy highway, a chorus in a neon lit super 8 between towns, a bridge in a dive bar waiting to play for 50 bucks and a drink ticket. From an anxious kid with a strange name moving from town to town, to a grown, wandering nomad - serenading strangers in search of the home I’ve never found, there’s an underlying haze of beauty in solitude."

The unmistakeable voice of July Talk's Peter Dreimanis is a perfect compliment to Kandle's.  They're joined by frequent collaborator Sam Goldberg of Broken Social Scene and drummer Josh Trager of the Sam Roberts band.
