Default Chad Vangaalen



Calgary based singer songwriter with a seriously unique voice, sort of a mix of The shins and The arcade fire lead singers...and maybe a bit of Vashti Bunyan. I've only got his latest album (it's his third), Soft airplane, which has all sorts of stuff like acoustic songs, some electronic bits, some epic some less so, mostly morbid and infectious, definitely worth checking out.

Chad Vangaalen - Molten light


Can you believe the multitalented cunt even makes his own videos? Don't you just hate those kinds of people?

I'll have to get an album. Mostly because "VanGaalen" is almost "Galen", which is my name.

Chad Vangaalen - Willow tree


This song sorta reminds me of Sufjan Stevens...which is no bad thing...

Isn't his voice captivating?

I quite like it too. It's quaint and quite charming. Could be a grower.

I saw this guy open for Wolf Parade in 05 and like him, but never really bothered checking him out otherwise. Will do.
