MANSIONS ON THE MOON
MANSIONS ON THE MOON
Specializing in a unique blend of lush alternative-electro-pop, Mansions On The Moon, (Ted Wendler, Ben Hazlegrove, Lane Shaw and Jeff Maccora) will release their hotly anticipated debut album on October 22nd.

Mansions On The Moon boast a remarkable resume, having collaborated with N*E*R*D, produced for Mac Miller and toured with Wiz Khalifa and Cherub. Up until now, their output has consisted of a DIPLO and Benzi produced mixtape titled 'Paradise Falls' and two EP's, 'Lightyears' and 'Full Moon'. October will see the release of their first full length album, created against a tumultuous background which represents, in many ways, a rebirth for this talented fourpiece. The record, which strikes a delicate balance between pop-sensibility and tasteful musicianship, offers listeners a first-hand portrayal of the ups and downs encountered on a path to chasing the dream.

The first cut taken from the album is the infectious 'Don't Tell, a track which dares you not to get up and dance, serving as both a welcome return and enticing teaser for their debut self-titled album. Speaking on the album, the band states:
"The name, "Mansions On The Moon," comes from the concept of turning a dream into reality, which for us, means making the best music we can possibly create. After countless studio sessions, nights of crashing on friends' couches, and bus rides to mixing sessions - our Mansion On The Moon is here."

MOTM has partnered with Pledge Music to offer exclusive merchandise packages through an online pre-sale campaign which will help fund the album printing, production, and tour. With live shows, new music and more coming this year, 2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year for MOTM. Keep your eyes peeled for further updates.

Yus is the solo project of Youceff Kabal. Based in Phoenix, AZ, Yus records and performs some strange archetype of pop music. Palms, his first record was self-released digitally on Bandcamp, November 21st 2010. The sound showcased on it is a love affair between moving beats and buzzing bass lines that work alongside lush keyboard harmonies to support and propel catchy hooks. Youceff was born in Brussels, Belgium, on March 20th 1990, and moved to Phoenix, Arizona in September 2004. He started making music on his family computer during high school, putting together hip hop beats for his neighbor who was a rapper. The current sound came together after a successful streak of songwriting in late 2009. After months of producing, recording and starting over again, Palms was finally completed in late 2010. In support of it, Yus has opened for national acts such as Youth Lagoon, Phantogram, Balam Acab and more recently Zola Jesus. A new record is currently in production, with release planned for 2012.
