Chad VanGaalen - Shrink Dust

The Canadian space cadet Chad VanGaalen released Diaper Island, his last album, about three years ago, and he’s spent the ensuing time learning to play pedal steel and working on a sci-fi cartoon called Translated Log Of Inhabitants. VanGaalen recorded his new album Shrink Dust at home in Calgary, and it has a slight dusty country influence, thanks to that pedal steel. But first single “Where Are You?” also sounds faraway and otherworldly, which is appropriate enough, since the album also serves as a partial score to the cartoon. Listen to “Where Are You?” below.

Shrink Dust is out 4/29 on Sub Pop.
