New Music | Dan Mangan – We Want To Be Pleasantly Surprised, Not Expectedly Let Down

[I]t makes me very happy to hear that Canadian troubadour Dan Mangan is releasing a little bit of new music. Mangan, who won three Western Canadian Music Awards for “Songwriter of the Year”, “Rock Album of the Year” and “Independent Album of the Year”, bringing his total to six Western Canadian Music Awards, is releasing a new single with a really long name, “We Want To Be Pleasantly Surprised, Not Expectedly Let Down.”

Check out the single above, and preorder the 7″ here, and if you are lucky enough to be in one of the cities below (all Canada), he’s touring with the Rural Albert Advantage (holy shit).

Top Albums of 2011 10-6

We all love lists, and we all love sarcasm. Though, I think its important to reflect upon the last year of music, I’m going to do so through the use of a list. It was a fantastic year full of awesome albums, and I’m going to count down a bunch of my favorites, and give you something to listen to while reading. Welcome to the top 10, albums that to be quite honest, could all be number ones, but hey it wouldn’t be a list without some order. 10. Rural Alberta Advantage – Departing The Rural Alberta Advantage – North…

New Music | Dan Mangan – Oh Fortune

Dan Mangan – Oh Fortune

Vancouver based singer songwriter Dan Mangan is set to release his new album Oh Fortune, as well as a US tour in support of the album.  Mangan’s sound is that of sincerity, and on this album a sense of increased maturity.  The current offering is his title track “Oh Fortune,” which shines with his gravelly voice and some understated musical arrangements that grow in complexity as the song goes on.  Its beautiful, emotionally driven, and if its any indication of the whole album, I think it will be a great success.

Oh Fortune (released 9/27 on Arts & Crafts) is available for Pre-Order along with a download of the title track from the album on Dan Mangan’s website here.
