Chad VanGaalen: Infiniheart
Buy! - (Sub Pop)
This Calgary singer-songwriter has been making his own home recordings for over a decade, but this is his first official label release. Originally released on the tiny Canadian label Flemish Eye last year, it’s now being put out in the US by Sub Pop. Infiniheart culls from the various recordings VanGaalen made in his bedroom from 2001-2003. They’re quite a varied lot, ranging from quiet acoustic ballads to beat-driven soundscapes to the occasional pop-rocker. Whatever the style, VanGaalen clearly has a gift for songwriting, and he puts them across with a fragile, tremulous vocal style reminiscent of Neil Young. 8/16/2005 - Don Yates
