Chad VanGaalen, Cousins
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
[SCI-FI COUNTRY] Chad VanGaalen’s Shrink Dust, like the rest of his discography, plays like an anthology of eerie fairy tales. With ghostly vocals and lyrics that address death, fear and mythology, the album proves to be another hauntingly beautiful VanGaalen fable. But with tracks running the gamut from the fuzzy and psychedelic to steel pedal-laden cowboy jams, it is also less acoustic than previous records. The album maintains the mythic weirdness he’s renowned for, while sonically exploring multiple genres. To get the full “fairy tale” experience, watch his self-animated music videos.
