Dan Mangan: The Indie Queens are Waiting

I’m a bit late to the Dan Mangan bandwagon, but I’m making up for it in enthusiasm. It’s hardly a surprise that this year’s been a Wilco and Neko year for me—new albums from both, plus my little road trip to Oregon have conspired to make it so—but Dan just knocked me flat when I first heard him on CBC Radio One. The funny thing is it was in my car, on one of these exceedingly rare days that I drove to work. The album’s brilliant—I just paused Bob Dylan to watch the video above. Buy it. You won’t regret it.
