The America’s have much to offer, but Canada alone has been progressively outshining the Northern part of the continent with their tasty maple whiskey, Trudeau politics, and environmental savvy. Alberta is a special place on Earth, and possibly the sole place, that could spawn an artist such as Chad VanGaalen. I am infatuated with VanGaalen’s shuddering vocals and lyrical perspectives, but his hand-drawn animations definitely take the spotlight. The fantastical creations and surreal depictions encourage listeners to engage their eyes as much as their ears. It has been approx. 1,182 dragging days since the release of Shrink Dust. That is why I am anticipating VanGaalen’s new album, Light Information, which drops September 3rd.  MARK YOUR CALENDERS
