Chad VanGaalen awed us yesterday with his talent for animating freaky figures, which also take centre stage on "Monster," a new song from his own upcoming record Shrink Dust. Like many great stories, "Monster" begins in the middle. VanGaalen's voice describes a terrifying metamorphosis with doe-eyed, freckled acceptance. As talons and scales replace fingers and skin, and the memory of what he was before becomes dimmer, his psychedelic campfire talent show of analogue synth and acoustic guitar welcomes the new flesh with open tendrils.

Chad VanGaalen's new album Shrink Dust is out April 29 via Flemish Eye (Sub Pop in the States); pre-order it here.
