Chad VanGaalen has shared Mind Hijacker’s Curse, another highlight from his forthcoming sixth album, Light Information’, which comes out on September 8th via Sub Pop (Flemish Eye in Canada).


For an album that’s about “not feeling comfortable with really anything,” as VanGaalen says, his sixth album, Light Information, is nonetheless a vivid, welcoming journey through future worlds and relentless memories. Throughout the dark-wave reverb of Light Information are stories of paranoia, disembodiment, and isolation–but there’s also playfulness, empathy, and intimacy. The rich soundscapes and sometimes jarring imagery could only come from the mind of a creative polymath–an accomplished visual artist, animator, director, and producer, VanGaalen has scored television shows, designed puppet characters for Adult Swim, directed videos for Shabazz Palaces, Strand of Oaks, Tanya Tagaq, METZ, Dan Deacon, and The Head and the Heart, and produced records for Women, Alvvays, and others.
