Week after week, what’s new, what’s shocking and what’s going on is all wrapped up in Mixtape’s Soundcheck. This week, we’ve got some pretty exciting news — Chad VanGaalen announced yesterday that his upcoming album Shrink Dust is set to drop April 29 on Sub Pop / Flemish Eye Records (Canada). Check out this video for “Where Are you?” VanGaalen released when he announced the new album.
Halifax band Walrus released a new EP yesterday. Glam Returns features four new psychedelic rock tracks that blend classic riffs with new production values.
Set to drop today, Prairieography is the latest from alt-country artist Del Barber. The album features more of the twangy, feel-good folky sounds that Barber is best known for and spins tales of prairie life. Take a listen to a song from the album below:
