On May 13, the biggest prize for Canadian music videos will be handed out in Toronto. We are profiling some of the nominees before that, including this clip from a previous Prism Prize winner. Slaight Music is Patron Sponsor for the Prism Prize.


Chad VanGaalen - "Host Body"

Like many of his videos before, as well as the excellent music videos created for artists like Metz, Daniel Romano, Timber Timbre, Andy Shauf and others, Chad VanGaalen’s "Host Body" once again takes us directly into the imagination of the Alberta-based multidisciplinary animator and recording artist. Taken from his 2017 full-length Light Information, "Host Body" features a 5-eyed carrot, multiple Ewok-eque aliens and plenty of VanGaalen’s patented psychedelia. Paired with his unique brand of rock and roll, the video is a truly wild ride.

VanGaalen has released six critically-acclaimed LPs over the years via Seattle’s venerable SubPop label and Calgary’s celebrated Flemish Eye Recordings. He has toured the world with his music, has designed several album covers and has continued his animation practice all the while.

In 2015, VanGaalen released his debut short film, Tarboz, which was awarded Best Canadian Short at the GIRAF Festival of Independent Animation, He won the 2015 Prism Prize for his work on Timber Timbre’s animated clip "Beat The Drum Slowly."

Neil Young's Love Earth Tour Will Take Him Throughout Canada

The Canadian icon is bringing his Love Earth Tour with Crazy Horse to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Burnaby. He's also added a second date at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, accompanying the release of his new album, FU##IN' UP.

Neil Young is showing some love to Canadian cities on his Love Earth tour. While his original tour announcement featured just one stop in his home country, in Toronto's Budweiser Stage, he's now announced dates in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C., as well as a second show at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, in response to "incredible fan demand."

The original tour was set to kick off in San Diego at the end of April and finish in Chicago in May. These five new dates pick things back up in July, with stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Young's hometown of Winnipeg. The tour finishes at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby B.C.
