Sincere southern noisy poppy dirty indie rock. Three guys, two fuzz pedals, reverb, whiskey sours, and catchy choruses.

Biography

Mansions is a rock band based out of Louisville, KY. On record it consists solely of Christopher Browder, but live he is joined by friends and strangers. Mansions plays indie-pop-rock that sounds like a 25 year-old hooked on 90's emo and alternative playing anxious and fuzzed out rock music with emotion instead of riffs.

A full-length album entitled New Best Friends was recorded with producer Mike Sapone (Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Straylight Run) and released in March of 2009 on Doghouse Records. Seven EPs of music self-recorded by Browder after the New Best Friends sessions were released in the fall of 2008 in various forms such as cassette, minidisc, and digital download. These EPs were also included on a bonus disc that accompanied the physical release of New Best Friends.

In the spring of 2010, Mansions and Doghouse Records mutually decided to part ways, leaving the band with the freedom to make a new album completely on their own terms. Two weeks of tracking at Browder's parents' house somehow led to 5 months of recording in various homes and apartments throughout the southeast, with Browder being joined by past touring members on some tracks but completing the lion's share of the recording alone. The result is Dig Up The Dead, an album about nostalgia for the way you thought things were going to be.
