More or Less
Every purchase online or instore gets a free Rough Trade / City Slang sampler CD.
More Or Less is Dan Mangan’s fifth album. His new music is about witnessing birth, and in some ways rebirth. It’s about feeling disconnected from a popular identity and becoming acclimated to a new one. It’s about raising kids in a turbulent world. It’s about unanswerable questions and kindness and friendship and fear. Dan Mangan worked with some incredible people who have made many of his favorite albums. In between recording sessions, he’d listen to Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks and Nick Drake’s Pink Moon. In short, his album is: more sparse. Less meticulous. More kids. Less time. More direct. Less metaphor. More discovery. Less youth. More warmth. Less chaos.
