"Nobody cared about their old heads, because the new ones work just fine now, don't they?.... they have the same size mouth and eyes. The  song  “Old  Heads”  is  a  sci-fi  space  anthem  to  technology  that constantly replaces itself, proving both necessary and unnecessary at the same time. It’s also a jangly pop gem, a trip through the fantastical that is ultimately warm and relatable.  This  remarkable coexistence is one of many achievements of CHAD VANGAALEN’s Light Information, his sixth record on Sub Pop, due September 8th.  For  an  album  that’s  about  “not  feeling  comfortable  with  really  anything,”  as  VANGAALEN  says,  Light  Information  is  nonetheless  a  vivid,   welcoming   journey   through   future   worlds   and   relentless   memories.  The  rich  soundscapes  and  sometimes  jarring  imagery  could   only   come   from   the   mind   of   a   creative   polymath--an accomplished   visual   artist,   animator,   director,   and   producer,  VANGAALEN has scored television shows, designed puppet characters for Adult Swim, directed videos for SHABAZZ PALACES, STRAND OF OAKS METZ,  DAN DEACON,  and  The  HEAD & THE HEART  and  produced  records for WOMEN, ALVVAYS, and others
