  • Skelliconnection is as varied and full of surprises as his last album, flirting with anthemic rock, prepared piano cartoon soundtracks, and quirky banjo airs. With broken dance beats, strange nocturnal dirges, driving rock cuts, and his fragile voice soaring above, Skelliconnection is distinctively Chad VanGaalen.

    There's huge talent at work here

    Neither [Conor Oberst or M. Ward) wields the vibrant psychedelic creativity that bursts forth from VanGaalen’s wonderfully scattered mind


    These are the signs of an artist not afraid of his own voice, or afraid to let it roam amongst experimental fields of music. I suppose writing hundreds of songs and singing in front of street walking strangers everyday can give you that kind of courage, but there's something more to VanGaalen. The reason I may not be able to put a finger on that extra quality is most likely what makes him one of a kind.


    VanGaalen is a spectacularly gifted and prolific songwriter who has an ear for cranking out unusual tunes from instruments and non-instruments alike. The resulting songs are purebreds.
