I love this video. Check out the brilliant animation by Chad VanGaalen for his song “Monster,” from his critically acclaimed 5th album Shrink Dust.
Have you heard the latest from Calgary singer/songwriter Chad VanGaalen? I’m loving “Monster”, from the forthcoming album, Shrink Dust (out April 28th-29th via Sub-Pop/Flemish Eye).
Shrink Dust, featuring the songs “Where Are You?” and “Monster,” was produced by VanGaalen at his Yoko Eno home studio in Calgary, Alberta.
Well, I guess I’m not just listening to Jonsi‘s new songs, but learning a bit about the live show he’s taking on the road with him. I’ve got tickets, looking forward to it.
From Boston comes Magic Man, a duo born from time spent on organic farms in the French countryside. I did a similar thing in 2002, as part of my trip around Europe and I’ll say, there’s something inspiring about that place. I remember the wine and food, the air, and inability to communicate well yet feel perfectly at home.
Thom Yorke‘s side project (original listed as Thom Yorke ???) has a name, Atoms For Peace. The band, consisting of drummer Joey Waronker, percussionist Mauro Refosco, Chili Peppers bassist Flea, and longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, will be touring in April, hopefully coming to a city near you.
