Watch Chad VanGaalen Perform ‘Light Information’ Standouts “Host Body” and “Static Shape” on a Paris rooftop for MOWNO + New Adult Swim Single

PLUS hear previously unreleased instrumental “Dust on Dust (Dog Walking Jammer)” via 2017 Adult Swim Singles Program.

Chad VanGaalen’s Light Information, his acclaimed 6th album of 2017, is available now worldwide on Sub Pop and in Canada from Flemish Eye

While in Paris during his European tour supporting the album, Chad and his backing band the Bleach Wipes performed a rooftop session for French website MOWNO. The band played stripped down versions of Light Information standouts “Host Body” and “Static Shape.”
VanGaalen also premiered the previously unreleased “Dust on Dust (Dog Walking Jammer)” single through Adult Swim, a driving instrumental which arrived earlier today, and caps off their year-long ‘Singles Program.’  The appropriately-titled “jammer” is representative of his more electronic and instrumental work that doesn’t always make it to his solo albums [listen here].

“Dust on Dust (Dog Walking Jammer)” isn’t VanGaalen’s first collaboration with the network. VanGaalen is also an amazing visual artist, having contributed both his animation and music to Adult Swim’s “Dream Corp LLC” — where he helped design the robot character T.E.R.R.Y, as well as composing the bizarre and memorable score.
And on the final leg of his recent Light Information tour, Chad stopped by CBC Q for a chat with show host Tom Power. The two talked about the new album, as well as Chad’s multifaceted life as an animator and visual artist. Chad and the Bleach Wipes also knocked out a few tunes from Light Information. The performance airs December 21st on CBC.
