Diaper Island, Chad VanGaalen‘s awesomely titled new LP, dropped yesterday, and to celebrate the milestone he created a video. Mind you, videos from Chad are typically far from the norm, featuring original cartoonish art that’s a bit demented in a way. This is, like the oddities in his music, a very, very good thing.
The video is for “Peace On The Rise”, the album’s second track.
In “Peace On The Rise”, things often morph into other things, and while visually excellent, it doesn’t necessarily seem to follow a path in the song as found in his work on “Molten Light”. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not there. It could be; I could have merely just had too much wine tonight.
Check out the video below and pick up Diaper Island from Sub Pop.
