Song of the Day - August 31, 2006

Chad VanGaalen has released his sophomore effort Skelliconnection, and you don't have to worry about poor second efforts. It's a great album, just as good, maybe even better than Infiniheart. Since Infiniheart's release, Chad has toured with the likes of The Pixies, Wolf Parade, and Built to Spill. His latest release has a slightly more full sound, yet Neil Young's influence still looms over this effort with country tinged songs like the beautiful "Mini TV" and "Wind Driving Dogs." "Gubbish" is a heavier song, possibly hanging around with The Pixies influenced this great tune. Its repetitive chorus, synthesizers, guitar, and Chad's vocals meld into an irresistible delight.
