Dig Up The Dead by Mansions (2011)
Kind of Like: Person L, I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business
Genres: Emo, Indie, Pop
"Mansions is a rock band based out of Louisville, KY. On record it has consisted solely of Christopher Browder, but live he is joined by Sal Cassato on drums and Ryan Davis on bass. Mansions plays indie-pop-rock sometimes described as The Get Up Kids meets Ryan Adams meets Dinosaur Jr. Their lyrics are often powerful and blunt, but many listeners can easily relate to the things their songs portray."
Look for this guy touring with I Can Make A Mess and Into It. Over It. They all will be in Lansing in a month or so. Woo! I almost feel like breaking up with my girlfriend just so I can be in the right mood to listen to this. Lots of angst and longing coming from this album. Not to mention great composition and thematic development from this songwriter.
