If you take some time out to listen carefully and really reflect on Dan Mangan‘s last record, 2009’s Nice, Nice, Very Nice, it hits you like a ton of bricks how extraordinary this album really was. Personally, songs like “Road Regrets”, “Robots”, “Indie Queens Are Waiting”, “Sold”, “Fair Verona”, and “Basket” are all amongst my all-time favourites from any artist. Producing this many outstanding “single” quality tracks on one album is a remarkable feat, and something it will be interesting to see if Dan Mangan can repeat with his upcoming album Oh Fortune.
Well, thanks to Canadian website Exclaim you can find out for yourself. Keep in mind though, Dan Mangan‘s the kind of artist that grows on you over a few listens.
There’s plenty of great professionally made videos of Dan Mangan out there on the internet, but I’ve always found this live performance to be particularly powerful.
