Last week, the prolific Dan Mangan released his latest musical venture alongside Vancouver-based Blacksmith. I didn’t really realize how big Dan is in Canada until I Wikipedia-ed his bio. Really interesting! The guy’s influence literally spans coast-to-coast (and we have a pretty big country). My dad passed this single along thinking I would appreciate its sense of longing (he knows me well, that one). True to form, I liked the song immediately. It’s subtle and sombre—a tantalizing combination.
