Here’s an interesting, haunting, offbeat track that I caught after a movie the other night. It stuck with me. Edit: I guess I should say more. The themes in the video are Vengeance, taking responsibility for ones’ actions, that sometimes we cannot escape our fates.. the video is short and to the point with expressive graphics that add another level of symbolic complexity to the haunting forlorn tones of the singer. This is the first track I’ve heard of Chad VanGaalens but I plan on checking out some more as soon as I get the chance. Can you judge a musician by their music? or.. a book by its cover .. Check out the track..

‘If there is something’ by Roxy Music in that flick just blew me away.. i’ve been listening to that song for days.. the whole start off like a hick jug band biz then kick into the warbling vocals.. and the psychedelic cornet hitting some dark off-keys and the vocals and the feeling.. Now put it together with the movie ‘Flashbacks of  Fool’ with Daniel Craig, a bong.. err bond boy.. and a great storyline with some real.. emotion/feeling.. to it.. either way.. that movie rules as does the track.. <3

This is the song in question.. You have to go to like 2 or 3 mins  (sorry, 1:40 is where it kicks off) in for it to go from psychedelic country to the good shiz..;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnV-agq0Yzw&feature=related
