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.
