Dan Mangan was one of those artists we wish we’d managed to catch at the End of the Road Festival this year and repeated listens to his recent album Oh Fortune has only strengthened our opinion, so we are pleased to be able to give you a taste of the record in the form of free download Row Of Houses.
Apparently the song is told from the perspective of a character from one of his favourite films, namely Gordie Lachance from Stand By Me. It is still instantly recognisable through his gruff and ready vocals, but the sound is fuller and more fleshed out than previous efforts and it suits this record perfectly. It’s late autumn release may see it overlooked in the best of lists, but that would be a great shame – this is a record most definitely worth investigating.
