A notorious homebody, Chad VanGaalen is well known for rarely leaving his rickety house in Calgary, endlessly drawing, recording and making art. With Diaper Island, VanGaalen distills his approach, producing his most sonically cohesive album to date, and the closest thing he has done to a rock album. Also a celebrated visual artist, VanGaalen is widely renowned for his illustration and animation work. Brushing the textures aside, it's also VanGaalen's most straightforward album to date. While Skelliconnection was taken from over a hundred songs that he had stockpiled in his basement, causing the mood to jump around aimlessly from one genre extreme to another - sometimes offering metal Flower Gardens and at other times offering chilled-out electronica Red Hot Drops - Soft Airplane is a more focused. outing one that rarely travels outside the indie pop realm. Chad VanGaalen Format: Audio CD. Please retry. Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist Sample. Visual artist and musician Chad VanGaalen sounds like Neil Young at times on his new album, Soft Airplane. Recording into an old tape deck and then overdubbing, VanGaalen usually plays either banjo or guitar on the majority of these tracks. Soft Airplane was definitely one of my favorite albums of 2008. It's has all the elements I look for in good music. It incorporates dark subject matter, has an excellent experimental side to it, uses a plethora of of unconventional instruments, has weird noises, dabbles in electro, but most of, it's really well crafted. Soft Airplane incorporates folk, electro and indie rock. It has a very home made, authentic feel. What I mean by that is there is no sense of board room or record execs fucking it up. Chad also designs all his own album art and does his own video animation. Anyways, to sum things up, this album is great. It gets better with each successive listen
