SUB POP IS PROUD TO WELCOME CHAD VANGAALEN INTO OUR EVER LOVIN

Forgive me if my comments sound hyperbolic, but Canadian bedroom recording artist Chad VanGaalen is one of the most mind-blowingly genius songwriters, epic composers and genuine performers I’ve seen in the last decade, and we here at Sub Pop are beside ourselves over having the opportunity to work with him.Later this year, we’ll be re-releasing a re-tooled version of his hour-long collection of home recorded gems called Infiniheart, originally issued on Flemish Eye. Chad is a detail-oriented, incredibly gifted illustrator and craftsman as well—he elaborately pencilled the intricate original Infiniheart cover, and often whittles his own instruments out of wood (including a from-scratch violin, harp, and clarinet, and the retooling of a vintage piano, which he completely re-carved.)We’ll have more news on Chad as time passes…until then, please visit the link below to read an excellent interview with him from Coke Machine Glow.
