-SOFT AIRPLANE-__________________________________________ Chad Vangaalen >>> Bones of Man (Soft Airplane)
Low budget and good ideas,
seems to be the formula to greatness.
Anyhow this is what Chad Vangaalen did with “Soft Airplane“
Post-punk to indie-electronics, great lyrics, fascinating voice, and full of spirit. An anti-pop record if you would ask me.
when you hear Chad`s songs, you can almost find yourself in a road movie, you feel his sorrow, but you also feel a real rocknroll intention deep inside the slow tempo tracks.
Chad Vangaalen “soft airplane” can be the soundtrack to the dimension where dreams/nightmares live, mostlty dreams, though.
Heavy psicodelic sound that pierce into your memory._______________________________________________ Chad Vangaalen – Stuffed animal (soft airplane b-sides)
By the way, if you didn`t know Chad Vangaalen is widely renowned for his illustration and animation work, wich he does himself entirely for his albums.
Give me a synth and a electric guitar, I want to be like Chad!
CHAD VANGAALEN “Soft Airplane (2×12)” was recently released (Release date: 26. August 2011) by www.altinvillage.de and this is
what they say about it:
“Ok, you might ask yourself why Altin Village is releasing an album which came out three years ago on Sub Pop.
Well, first of all, it will be available on vinyl with gatefold cover and all the shenanigan for the first time and just in time for VanGaalen‘s euro tour.
Secondly, it‘s got two bonus tracks and a download code.
And thirdly, this one‘s just timeless. Everything just done right.”__________________________________________________ Chad Vangaalen – Microscopic world (Soft Airplane b-sides)
