CHAD VANGAALEN

Soft Airplane (Flemish Eye)


Rating: NN


Self-consciously sticking with the lo-fi aesthetic that earned him winking emoticons from indie rock fans throughout the blogosphere, Calgary’s Chad VanGaalen releases another terribly twee basement tinker tape that answers the question no one dared ask: what would Destroyer sound like if Dan Bejar were obsessed with Neil Young instead of David Bowie?

Ultimately, your appreciation of the quaintly crafted pop ditties on Soft Airplane will depend on your tolerance for listening to an adult male trying to sound like a naive little boy. If that strikes you as cute rather than troubling or pathetic, then you should be all over it.
