"Blindspot" - Initial Interim Findings.

"Blindspot", the new studio album from Belfast boxing promoter turned singer Dan Michelson is an intriguing mix of songs, and the gaps between those songs that tell you when each one has finished. Perhaps one day Michaelson will compile those gaps and the ones on his previous albums into an album of their own.

This is Dan's best album to date. Every song is perfectly crafted. His voice is pure cracking baritone bliss. The Coastguards add a layer of subtle sonic shades. If you like your music authentic and raw, this wont disappoint.
