DAN MAN­GAN

MORE OR LESS CITY SLANG, OUT NOW

Q (UK) - - Awards 2018 -

First al­bum in five years for award-win­ning Canuck. Af­ter years of con­stant tour­ing and four al­bums, singer-song­writer Dan Man­gan parked up his van and opted for some fam­ily time that stretched to a five-year hia­tus. More Or Less di­als down the max­i­mal­ist freak-folk of 2011’ s Oh For­tune as he ex­plores his new sta­bil­ity as hus­band and fa­ther. The old ten­sion of wor­ry­ing about the fu­ture is re­placed by the ter­ror of los­ing the present – Peaks & Val­leys ner­vously skit­ters about, with Man­gan wor­ry­ing whether he’s do­ing enough to hold his world to­gether, while Just Fear sees him won­der­ing if we have to oc­ca­sion­ally break ev­ery­thing just to put it back to­gether again. Down­time and down­siz­ing has served Man­gan well, al­low­ing him to chisel out his best al­bum yet. ANDY FYFE Lis­ten To: Peaks & Val­leys | Trou­bled Mind | Fool For Wait­ing
