MP3: Chad VanGaalen – “Sara”

Chad VanGaalen has been around for a few years but it’s not unlikely that you’ve never heard anything by him. If you’ve heard anything about him it’s most likely that he’s something of a recluse. Well, either that or he’s the dude who decided to name his album Diaper Island. Regardless of the album’s title Diaper Island is an intriguing listen that’s all over the map musically. “Sara” is one the finest cuts from the album, the haunting echoed vocals over simple acoustic guitar give a feeling of closeness to VanGaalen as he sings. Then when you think about the lyrics and VanGaalen’s character in combination it only adds to the song’s power.
