Congrats to Dan Mangan for winning Songwriter of the Year, Rock Album of the Year and Independent Album of the year at the West Canadian Awards. He’s also heading out on a tour with The Rural Alberta Advantage. You can check out dates here. If that wasn’t enough he’s releasing a new 7″ on October 16 called Racials. The A-side features a track called We Want To Be Pleasantly Surprised, Not Expectedly Let Down and a lovely cover of Yukon Blonde‘s Stairway.
