VanGaalen has been in the habit of producing dense,  glitchy, lo-fi science fiction transmissions in resent years but, underneath the musical outer space S.O.S. is a guy that can busk for a living in the great white north.  Dude can write a song.  Complete with Garbage Pail Kid fractal horror show cover art-this thing is shaping up to be a nerdy dream.  Self described as a country record and a soundtrack to his animated sci fi film, Chad’s newest LP drops via Sub Pop in April.

The Details


—> If you pre-order Shrink Dust from us here at, you will receive a free booklet featuring a bunch of original drawings by Chad of characters doing frisbee moves from the science fiction movie he’s been making and of which this album draws it’s inspiration from. Customers who pre-order the LP will also receive the limited, colored-vinyl “Loser Edition” of the album.

All of these items are on a first come, first served basis and once they’re gone, they’re gone. Order now to secure all of these limited-edition items!

Also please know that if you pre-order this record, your order will not ship until the week of (or possibly slightly before) April 29th. This applies to everything in your order – NONE of it will ship until the week of (or , again, possibly slightly before) April 29th. So, if you’d like to order more than just this Chad VanGaalen CD/LP, it would be best to place separate orders if you’re the type who wants what you ordered, and you want it NOW! Thanks!
