“Canadian musician, Illustrator & mountain dweller” Chad VanGaalen has his fifth album, ‘Shrink Dust’, ready for release next month.
Whoa! This is an out there song/video.
The video for ‘Where Are You?’ features Chad’s animations from over the years. Very bizarre, but ingenious at the same time. I was hooked on the tune from the first listen. Fuzzy, low-fi, disconcerting and a little shouty…it’s brilliant.
Check out Chad VanGaalen on Facebook. You can learn of upcoming tour dates and pre-order the new album here.
