Prior to his tragic death at the age of 26, Women guitarist Christopher Reimer was working on some ambient work with fellow Calgary-based artist Chad Vangaalen. Unfortunately, Reimer passed away before it was completed, but now, according to Exclaim!, Reimer’s friends have decided to collect the finished songs and compile a posthumous cassette release, along with selections of his artwork and writing.
The collection is being called The Chad Tape, and it’s currently available to stream and download through Reimer’s Bandcamp page or you can listen to the tape in its entirety below. You can also purchase a limited edition cassette version of the release.
All proceeds will go to the Chris Reimer Legacy Fund which will provide youth art scholarships as well as fund the release of Reimer’s music.
