6am Repeat is a recurring feature here at Folk Hive in which we stream the latest track that plays incessantly in the earbuds when we awake at that hour and imbibe massive amounts of coffee and cigarettes in preparation for the advancing day. Consider it your jam of the day — a sweet, sweet gift from me to you. I love you, dude.
Dan Mangan is something new to me, which is a wholly different kind of tragedy I’m not prepared to deal with at such an early hour.
While Mangan’s bio states that he’s a folk artist, this is some sweet ass rock shit and that’s a direction in which I’ve been trending lately. #Rock. There’s been a whole hell of a lot of Howllin’ Rain, J Roddy Walston and the Business, Deer Tick, et al., up in this joint lately and I’m jazzed to add Mangan’s latest, Oh Fortune, to that fat, growing playlist. Happy fucking Monday, dudes.
