Mansions On The Moon – “The Truth”

Music for… riding the technicolor synth dragon into dream land and losing yourself in a swirl of shapes and memories. I don’t always tell the truth, but I do when I say I love this.

Location: Los Angeles, dreams, etc.

Future: Debut self-titled album and US Fall Tour drops on October 22nd!


[VIDEO] Mansions On The Moon – “Somewhere Else Tonight”

Looks like you should never underestimate the power of the passionate. From the every evolving Mansions On The Moon to these two dudes in the video’s epic quest for epicness. I really feels great when great bands make great videos for great songs.

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Future: Pr-order their new self titled LP here. You have 3 hours left to get all kinds of rad goodies.

[MP3] Mansions on the Moon – “Radio”

and if it doesn’t sell we gotta switch it up

♫ Mansions on the Moon – Radio

The Los Angelenoes behind one of the year’s best EPs are back with a bonus jam that delivers more of their signiture falsetto vocals and infectious grooves. Summer nights get an extension, your ears get a massage, and traditional radio gets a slap in the face.

  • What: Dream pop, like Motopony, M83
  • Where: Los Angeles + Facebook / Soundcloud / Amazon
  • When: Debut EP Light Years is supposedly out now. I cant find it.
  • Why: Stealth indie rock that flies under the radar until it’s too late and you are hooked. Hushed vocals and big fuzzy grooves that fill the room with energy. Their band name seems to fit more and more.
