Red Hot Drops
Chad Vangaalen's Infiniheart was one of my favorite records of 2004, and again of 2005, and I'm slowly but surely falling in love with his newest LP, Skelliconnection. According to Sub Pop, the album "was culled from hundreds of songs Chad has recorded over the last year or so, while holed up in his bare bones basement home studio. Using handmade instruments alongside those available to mere mortals, he's created an even more diverse assemblage of music than for his last album and debut..."
When this track popped up randomly on my iPod the other day, the spooky, quivering synth had me convinced for about 30 seconds it was some B-side from Silent Shout. Then I saw the video, featuring Vangaalen's otherworldly animation, and I was hooked.
