Chad VanGaalen: What Happened to?

This is music on the edge of taking a dangerous trip over a cliff. His song lyrics take whimsical turns and there are quiet and quite loud jokes aplenty.  The weirdness and quixotic take a front seat but never derail the whole.  It is a rare act that can maintain this balance.  I’m thinking, The Flaming Lips and Half-Handed Cloud.  This is my first serious consideration of Mr. VanGaalen and I feel I’m on the verge of a nervous break-through (stolen from Michael Been of The Call).
