Chad VanGaalen

Calgary-based artist Chad VanGaalen doesn't just cross disciplines—he crosses dimensions. VanGaalen records prolifically and alone. Depending on which song you're listening to, he can be categorized as acoustic singer/songwriter, dirty college rock, cellar-born lo-fi, harsh electronic noise, science-fiction techno, or, most accurately, "other." His songs deal with metaphysics and bodily functions, often at the same time. He's more than an iconoclast—he's one of the 21st century's most creative and rewarding artists. If that sounds highfalutin, I should add that he's one of the weirdest, too. NED LANNAMANN
