PO NOW: Mansions - Big Bad

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)





The new Mansions album is called Big Bad and it comes out on June 26, 2020. Listen to "Black and White" above.

This is the first new Mansions full-length since 2013's Doom Loop (Clifton Motel Records) and their first new music since 2017's Deserter EP (we helped with that one). It's the fourth LP overall for the Seattle band, consisting of multi-instrumentalist Chris Browder and bassist Robin Dove, following Doom Loop, 2011's Dig Up The Dead and 2009's New Best Friends.

On this page you can pre-order Big Bad on 12" vinyl LP. The first vinyl pressing is limited to 1,000 units and you can find the pressing info below. There are also vinyl bundles available on this page, which you can see below as well.

Along with the LPs, we've got a T-shirt, a crew neck, a hat, and a very special pennant made in collaboration with the Mansions fans and pennant aficionados at Oxford Pennant. Please view information about pre-ordering the cloth items below -- there are separate links to purchase the cloth items, and there are bundles of those available as well. Please read carefully, if you want multiple things it'll save you money to choose a bundle (up to $20)! Purchase of any Big Bad item comes with a download of the album delivered on June 26. 

Big Bad finds Mansions at an intersection. It's an album that's preoccupied with making peace with the past and finding a way to make the most of the future--all without losing sight of here and now. Browder's songwriting has never been more dynamic, weaving vibrant synths, shimmering guitars, and churning bass into a sound that captures the big hooks that Mansions are known for while also entering uncharted sonic territory.

Matters of aging, mortality, and identity are explored over the top of 11 songs that range from sparse and deeply intimate to sprawling and atmospheric, often within the same song. The result is a document of change and growth that feels like a culmination of Mansion's ever-evolving sound, as well as a new way forward.
