Chad Vangaalen

Hailing from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, singer/songwriter Chad VanGaalen creates a delightfully soothing indie rock sound. His airy falsetto is part Christopher Cross and part Thom Yorke, and fans of Broken Social Scene, Band of Horses, and Destroyer should find the charm in VanGaalen's wild imagination. Since 1998, the quirky VanGaalen has drafted hundreds of songs well-tailored for indie rock fans old and new. In 2004, the Calgary label Flemish Eye gathered some of these songs together for VanGaalen's first album, Infiniheart. Sub Pop inked VanGaalen to an American deal a year later and reissued a reassembled version of Infiniheart. Skelliconnection arrived in August 2006. Soft Airplane, his second album for Sub Pop, was released in September 2008, and featured a cartoon video for "Molten Light" that he illustrated and animated himself. In 2009, VanGaalen released the largely instrumental and electronic-oriented experimental album Snow Blindness Is Crystal Antz under the name Black Mold. After producing two albums for Flemish Eye labelmates Women, VanGaalen returned with Diaper Island in 2011. A year later, he began working on an animated science fiction feature called Translated Log of Inhabitants. Preceding its release, he issued his fifth album, Shrink Dust, in April 2014, which is partially a soundtrack to the film. ~ MacKenzie Wilson

The music is motivating. It says I can do this. The lyrics are dark and disturbing.

This song is absolutely ludicrous and crazy... and I finally decided that I love it.

Chad really has one of the most soothing musical styles, while still incorporatin g vividly visual lyrics in a lot of his songs. I just can spend hours listening to his stuff.

Well...Chad Vangaalen will never be confused with Eddie Van Halen.

Of this, I can assure you...unless , it's by some dude in China who doesn't know English that well...
