DOWNLOAD: “Robots” – Dan Mangan (mp3)
It’s been far too long since the release of Dan Mangan‘s excellent debut Postcards and Dreaming, and that’s why I’m happy to report that the Vancouver singer/songwriter is back in a big way in 2009 with both a new EP and a new full length record. The Roboteering EP, which is a prelude to his forthcoming LP Nice, Nice, Very Nice, features three songs off of the new record, and two previously unreleased tracks. The EP comes out on digitally on March 10, 2009 (iTunes, Zunior) and physically on April 7, 2009. Dan is about to hit the road in support of Roboteering and he’ll be playing some shows at SXSW, as well as dates across Canada and in the UK.
The title track off of the new EP called “Robots”, (which Dan famously sang as a call and response at his Union Hall gig in July of 2008), is available for download right here. Also, the brilliant duet with Veda Hille, “The Indie Queens Are Waiting”, is currently streaming over at Dan’s MySpace page.
