Back to Canada today, and this time to Vancouver – for some folk-tinged melancholia from Dan Mangan and Blacksmith, with their ace tune Mouthpiece.
Taken from the 2014 album Club Meds, it’s an awesome piece of music; all broody, atmospheric and dark. Imagine if Nick Drake and Nick Cave got smashed together and started playing instruments and you’d be relatively close to this as an end result.
I think it’s blood lovely. Take a listen, and then play the rest of the album. You won’t be disappointed.
