In a performance from the Best of Q, Dan Mangan and his band Blacksmith perform live from Club Meds. The new record sees the boys from Vancouver at their most adventurous and expansive. It's more experimental than previous efforts, featuring layered vocals and sophisticated drum beats paired with a political message.

The Juno winning artist also sits down with guest host Damian Abraham to discuss his entrance into fatherhood, a quieter four-year run in his career and the dangers of becoming numb to the world around us.
