Hop On the Chadwagon

Chad VanGaalen. Man. What can I say? He builds his own instruments and records in his bedroom. He’s about seven feet tall. He makes his own videos. I think I let “Traffic” loop about 8 times before I realized it wasn’t just one super-long super-cool song. Totally, totally great.

from his Flemish Eye Records page:
Chad VanGaalen – “Traffic” (MP3)
Chad VanGaalen – “Clinically Dead” (MP3)
Chad VanGaalen – “Somewhere I Know There’s Nothing” (MP3)

from his Sub Pop page:
Chad VanGaalen – “Echo Train” (MP3)

I’ve seen a lot of comparisons to other indie heroes, so I’m not going to list them here, but I think this is going to be a hot show when he gets to New York in December.
