    A funhouse mirror of an album, Mini Mansions is a few shades lighter than Rekords Rekords' usual output, but it's still twisted and catchy enough to win over those more familiar with Shuman's day job.

    Just as Shuman himself demands attention within the crowded QOTSA line-up, Mini Mansions should shine in their own right regardless of their imposing origins. All they require are your ears. It would be rude to turn down such a delectable request.

    It's different. It's well-written. It's emotive. Those three things are hard enough to find in music these days, let alone in one place.

    With Queens of the Stone Age bassist Michael "Mikey Shoes" Shuman taking a breather from that instrument-instead, he performs guitar and drums and sings--the L.A. trio's debut is to shimmering Brit pop what QOTSA is to hard rock.

Fresh, wild andNew Project from Josh Homme (Desert Sessions) as Producer. Mini Mansions found 2009 in L.A. released their self-titled debut. Fresh, wild and chaotic. It is hard to specify the genre of music, the band sees the music as Psychédélique / Rock. Beatles + John Lennon + Elliott Smith + X = Mini Mansions Full Review »
