ARTIST SPOTLIGHT :: Mansions on the Moon (download)

Did you ever want to live on the Moon? I did. It would be so easy to build a mansion there, with very little gravity and plenty of rock. I never gave up on that dream and neither did this band. Mansions on the Moon was formed in 2011 in Virginia Beach, VA. They were comprised of Ted Wendler on guitar and vocals, Ben Hazlegrove on keyboards, and Lane Shaw on drums. Both Shaw and Hazlegrove were also members of Pnuma Trio. Jeff Maccora later joined on bass.
Their first release, Paradise Falls (Presented by Diplo & DJ Benzi), garnered the attention of many prominent blogs and in 2011 hypetrak called them one of the "most interesting recording artists to have emerged this year." Paradise Falls includes collaborations with Xaphoon Jones (of Chiddy Bang), Deadmau5, Washed Out, and Big Gigantic, among others. The trio has worked closely with members of N*E*R*D, and Pharrell Williams served as executive producer on their 2012 EP Lightyears.
The group has produced official remixes for Foster the People and Zee Avi, and produced the Mac Miller track "PA Nights" on the album Blue Slide Park. In 2011 the group joined Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller on the Green Carpet Tour, and also performed at the Snowball Music Festival. In 2012 they played South by Southwest and the Lightyears Tour. Here's some songs for you to enjoy, some from Lightyears and some remixes.
