Chad VanGaalen has put together a four-song 7" for Record Store Day. The 7", entitled "I Want You Back", features four songs not available anywhere else, including Chad's upcoming album "Shrink Dust".
Of course it features the inimitable artwork of Chad himself; feast your eyes on it here. This exclusive RSD release is limited to 300 copies in Canada (2300 worldwide). Pick one up on April 19th at your local retailer!
Braids announce a 16 date tour with Wye Oak! The tour kicks off this May in Pittsburgh, and winds through the eastern US, ending in Atlanta; en route they stop in Montreal at Il Motore and Toronto at the Horseshoe Tavern. Braids announced their dates today in a video accompanied some previously unreleased music here.
Chad Vangaalen is set to release "Shrink Dust" — his fifth album—on April 29th, and pre-orders begin today.
"Shrink Dust" was produced by Chad at his Yoko Eno home studio in Calgary, Alberta. Pitchfork premiered the first single "Where Are You?" today, and said it “features plenty of tension and warped-production sonics that have since become VanGaalen's calling card.”
Pre-orders of the album through the Flemish Eye store will include a booklet of original artwork by Chad featuring crazy frisbee moves! Pre-orders begin on iTunes on February 4th.
