Dan Michaelson and the Coastguards

Burning Hearts (The State 51 Conspiracy)

By • Sep 12th, 2014 • Category: Album review

‘Burning Hearts’ is taken from Dan Michaelson’s fifth album ‘Distance’ and features a croaking, characterful baritone over a background of jangly electric guitar and acoustic strumming. It has a plodding, laid-back, cheerful vibe which belies Michaelson’s gloomy reputation, although whether the rest of the album is as upbeat I’m not sure. Dan Michaelson may not be a household name and his unique vocals probably aren’t to everyone’s taste but there’s no doubt he knows how to craft a beguiling tune.
