BOAS
Mansion (Overcoat Recordings)

By: Alex Steininger

Mansion's BOAS takes the simple, pleasurable acoustic guitar songwriting to the next level, writing songs around an acoustic guitar, and then elaborating on them quite a bit. Still retaining the intimacy and urgency that one gets when you listen to a good singer-songwriter stripped down to the bare essentials, Mansion uses electric & acoustic guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, pianos, horns, and percussion to bring to life their alluring, soul-tingled, smoky indie-rock. Like an old R&B or jazz record you find yourself listening to whenever the occasion calls for something timeless, Mansion's BOAS is a warm, never out of style sound that will keep reinventing itself for you each time you listen to it. Hold it tight and cherish it, because, like those old R&B and jazz records, when you listen to this, you'll get goose bumps. I'll give it an A-.
