LUNAR MANSION – ‘Degenerate Heart’ CDEP
looking through the backlog when getting this issue ready when I came across
this CD and realized I needed to check it out.
The debut EP from locals Lunar
Mansion is, for the most
part, raw songs in a indie rock meets the blues type vibe. Full of crunchy guitars,
and grooves that
drip with attitude, most of the songs are very rough around the edges with
snide vocals and a balls to the wall approach.
The last song is a love song delivered almost in an early 60s rock
ballad manner similar to something you’d hear on oldies radio. While Lunar Mansion
has had a rep for being occasionally chaotic live, the songs here are more
focused and manage to be the center of attention. I know not everyone that reads
this zine will
like this band but if you’re curious feel free to check this out. (BOONE)
