Offred is part of Dan Mangan's newest album Club Meds in which Blacksmith is also credited. Blacksmith seems to be made up of multiple musicians from Vancouver that all worked on the album with Dan. Offred is also the first song off the album and right off the bad gives the listener that things are different. Is Dan's backing band going to bring something special to this album that we haven't heard from before? I hope so, and I will mention more on the Album review I will be writing up hopefully the very near future.
