The incredible Dan Mangan. His latest album, 2011’s Oh Fortune, is out now on Arts & Crafts.
Check out “Post War Blues” below - and if for some reason you haven’t picked up either Oh Fortune or 2009’s Nice, Nice Very Nice yet…do it. Both albums have ranked in The Sound and The Furry’s Favorite Albums of [the year] lists (2009, 2010, & 2011) and are both HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Scott Thompson and Brian Barthelmes of Tallahassee. Their brand new album Old Ways has been one of my highest anticipated albums of the year (their previous album Jealous Hands ranked in The Sound & The Furry’s Favorite Albums of 2011) and it officially drops NEXT TUESDAY (5/7)! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Check out one of my favorite tracks from Old Ways “Minor Blues IV” below:
From their brand new self-titled album Junip- out TODAY (4/23) on Mute Records. This is the first of two brilliantly dark videos (directed by Mikel Cee Karlsson) from the album (Part II “Your Life Your Call” HERE).
