Chad VanGaalen

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.

Hannah Georgas told the world her song, “Millions,” will play on this week’s Girls—HBO’s acclaimed show. If you can’t wait until Sunday, hear the song here:

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:
