The Canadian musician's sixth LP on Sub Pop is as VanGaalen himself puts it about “not feeling comfortable with really anything.” Light Information is focused on the anxieties of modern living that manifests itself as a psychedelic sci-fi space jam through indie-rock. 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 and METZ and produced records for Women Alvvays and others. The product of six years’ work going back even before 2014’s Shrink Dust Light Information emerged from the experimental instruments that fill VanGaalen’s Calgary garage studio. As always VanGaalen wrote played and produced all of the music on Light Information (save Ryan Bourne’s bass part on Mystery Elementals and vocals on Static Shape from his young daughters Ezzy and Pip) and designed the cover art. Imagine Neil Young fronting The Shins with a shit tone of noise thrown at it!
