Dan Mangan – Robots [download]
But don’t let them go to waste. Whilst doing a little updating of the blog Facebook page (go on have click), I found Arts and Crafts were offering a cheeky sampler on their facebook page. And so, singing the praises of social networking, I merrily clicked and dragged and put my mums Sennheiser headphones on.
Many absolute gems to be had but Dan Mangan completely stole the show. Robots had a wonderful calming sound to its slightly scruffy blend of brass, distant drums and rough marbley vocals. This is an artist that is screaming out to have a needle dropped on with the windows open, I intend to listen to his new LP as ostentatiously as possibly so that everyone can hear. Because Robots need love too.
