Chad VanGaalen: Flower Garden

 
An intriguing bit of electronic noodling opens into a blast furnace of guitars and this quirky, quick-stepping bit of heavy-metal-tronica takes off. A bedroom rocker from Alberta, VanGaalen is an idiosyncratic talent already legendary in indie circles after just two CDs for his prolific output. No one song of his is necessarily characteristic of his sound; this one is probably particularly uncharacteristic, but I do like the juxtaposition of the rat-a-tat drive and VanGaalen's sleek, concise, classic-rock-y melodies and flexible voice.
