“I love beautiful melodies telling me terrible things”.
- a Mr. Tom Waits
I’ve been a Chad fan for a few years now. This is the only Chad of which I am a fan. Chad joke! Soft Airplane is my standout favourite album of his. The new album Diaper Island is what my high school golf instructor used to call a “good miss”.
My favourite on the new album is Sara. Very reminiscent of past successes. His M.O. clearly takes after one of my favourite quotes about music from a musician I barely enjoy (please see above). This is Chad’s greatest gift to us all – the scariest stuff set to unassuming, cute indie rock. Enjoy the skinnyboy prettyvoice and all of its opposing glory.
