Chad VanGaalen has shared ‘Mind Hijacker’s Curse’, another highlight from his forthcoming sixth album, Light Information, which comes out on September 8th via Sub Pop.
“Mind Hijacker’s Curse is the outcome and side effect of vacationing inside of another organism’s consciousness,” VanGaalen says. “Once we can do this, I see the potential to forget your physical self and just live inside of some other beings mind.

For an album that’s about “not feeling comfortable with really anything,” as VanGaalen says, his sixth album, Light Information, is nonetheless a vivid, welcoming journey through future worlds and relentless memories. Throughout the dark-wave reverb of Light Information are stories of paranoia, disembodiment, and isolation–but there’s also playfulness, empathy, and intimacy.
