Mini Mansions

Saturday 21 January, 2012 at 8:59 am

How about a psychedelic blend of The Beatles, Elliott Smith and The Beach Boys? Mini Mansions are a Los Angeles band composed of three talented singers/musicians: Zach Dawes, Tyler Parkford and Michael Shuman (the bassist of Queens Of The Stone Age). Discovering MM was a real treat. Super cool harmonies and lots of twists and turns so you never know where the melody is taking you. Expect the unexpected. Oh, and you’re also about to witness one of the strangest music videos ever created- so don’t say you didn’t get a fair warning. Happy tripping.

Lyrics

Waking up from an Arial dream
Did I lock up all the doors, did I make the tea
All the guys at my gym put their pockets away
Fucking lucky if they’ll live through today
Cocaine backwad crazy kazoo
Dickey diabetics hanging up on you
Liquidate everything and let’s go for a ride
Don’t even tell your mother
I’d do it all again, I do it all the time ah ha ha ha
Going over the edge evel knievel divine
I can’t trip to get over you
Got a spider underneath my bed,
I got a paper centipede eating up my head
All the girls at my school are ventriloquists
Tricky dickey hippopotamus
Monkey vampires, mini shampoos
Paranormal pigeons hanging over you
Put your face on the dash and let’s go for a ride
Don’t even tell your mother
Do it all again I do it all the time ha ha ha ha
Going over the edge evel knievel divine
I can’t wait to wake up from you huh huh huh huh
Who’d have thought that the man in the wall is he pink
Does he bleed, does he move at all
Their demise is a dead beat dynamo door
Listen up so you can hear me no more
Fascist magic, poisonous teeth,
Purple dioramas in a cavity
Put your face on the dash and let’s go for a ride
Don’t even tell your mother
Do it all again I do it all the time he he he he
Going over the edge evel knievel divine
I can’t wait to wake up from you huh huh huh huh
Evel knievel
Majik marker
Evel knievel
Majik marker
Evel knievel
Majik marker
Evel knievel
Don’t tell your mother
