Dan Mangan Release New Album ‘Oh Fortune’ also download Free Track Post War Blues

by on Oct.12, 2011, under Rock Music News

Dan Mangan new album Oh Fortune, also joins the City Slang label.

Following numerous European jaunts, tours with The Walkmen, The Decemberists and Okkervil River, playing for Wills & Kate on their recent trip to Canada, award nominations and appearances at Glastonbury and End of the Road, Dan Mangan has joined City Slang. The Vancouver-based song smith will be releasing his captivating new album ‘Oh Fortune’ in the UK on December 5th.
You can download and hear ‘Post War Blues’  here: http://soundcloud.com/cityslang/dan-mangan-post-war-blues

Already a highly regarded Polaris Prize nominee in his home land, his mark on the UK thus far has been fleeting but impressively well received and the release of this new record a statement of intent. Ambitious and textured, ‘Oh Fortune’ sees Mangan pull away from the world of alt-folk, observational anthems that its predecessor ‘Nice, Nice, Very Nice’ encapsulated, allowing the music to swell up into waves of full orchestration and with the help of free-jazz experimentalists and Seattle’s Eyvind Kangarrangements developed into luscious walls of sound, sweeping and flowing throughout the album.Post War Blues’ is the perfect introduction to the album, and proves that Mangan has much more to give than ‘Nice, Nice, Very Nice’ suggested.

“Hugely impressive… An album of songs with wry, razor-sharp, self-observational lyrics and arrangements that are deceptively complex. ****” The Times

Despite the change in direction, ‘Oh Fortune‘ never strays far from what Mangan believes is ultimately “him”.
The  last  record  did  far  more  than  I  or  anyone  else  thought  it  would…  I felt  like  we stumbled by accident onto something that people liked. I feel now that if we tried to recreate  something  that  already  worked,  I  wouldn’t  like  it…  and  then  they  wouldn’t like  it  either,”  Dan  muses,  “it  has  to  be  sincere,  and  relevant,  and  whatever  we’re feeling right now.”
Anthemic calls to arms such as ‘Post War Blues’ and ‘How Darwinian’ do just that. Reflecting how Mangan is feeling now, and continuing the themes of isolation and desperation that are raised by tracks such as ‘Rows of Houses’, the rich instrumentation and the positivity of the album’s title spawned from Dan’s reflection of a ticker‐tape parade in the US in 1926 balance out the morbid streams of thought.
Oh Fortune‘ debates melancholy while it anticipates incredible moments of glory and victory, as the title’s background suggests. It’s not sad, it’s simply honest. Life is just that.
