mansions on the moonL.A. indie pop/electronica band Mansions on the Moon have released a new EP, Lightyears, and have made it available as a free download for the time being. All you have to do is like it on Facebook. I did this, and I like it in real life, too, especially the second song, "Leaves Fall," which is just as serene and pretty as you might guess from its title. And it's executive produced by Pharrell Williams! Download it while it's hot. They'll have a full-length out later this year, and they play L.A.'s The Mint March 9.

So, remember I did a post on Mansions On The Moon a few back? You know, the cool new kids on the block like everyone's into.

I'll be there with my moon boots on. Just kidding.

Diplo + Benzi Present Mansions On The Moon

Mansions on the Moon
, the new kids on the block. Literally! So fresh, so new I could hardly find any verbiage on them. But isn’t that how we like it? We music aficionados like to discover “virgin music,” untapped territory, music we can put our friends up on. That’s when digging becomes most rewarding, when you can share with friends who aren’t yet up on shit yet.

What Iittle I can tell you about Mansions on the Moon is they're an Echo Park formed trio; they sort of defy categorization, but if I had to pick one, I'd put a check in the "all above" box. Let's just say Mansions On the Moon is ridiculously awesome, a group your girlfriend will be into and her girlfriends and all their friends friends. So get hip, otherwise you’ll be left outta the loop, and the loop is so in right now. Watch this seed grow; Mansions on the Moon will one day be EPIC!

One fellow DJ who seems to have a tiny investment in this whole seed growing process is Diplo. He, along with Benzi, present this highly anticipated mixtape.They teamed up with some cool friends like N.E.R.D., Willy Joy and Xaphoon Jones (Chiddy Bang) to create pure goodness. Paradise Falls is their little bundle of joy, definitely worth a listen or two…or possibly 3. My personal favorite standout track is "Glimpse of The Future" with Xaphoon Jones. Melodically it reminds me of Sleigh Bells' "Rill Rill," which samples "Can You Get to That" from Funkadelic's Maggot Brain album, which I had on repeat all summer long. Peep this and look out for more things to come from Mansions on the Moon, including a debut album in 2011.
