    Mini Mansions will release their forthcoming new album, The Great Pretenders, in early 2015 on T-Bone Burnett's Electromagnectic Recordings via Capitol Records in the U.S. and Fiction Records in the U.K.

    The introductory and fast-paced track is "Death Is a Girl" and it embraces dreamy psychedelic pop as much as '80s new wave and plays out with a sense of urgency, daring you to stand still.

    Why don't you enjoy an early taste and listen to "Death Is a Girl" for yourself? The song is below:

    Some intel about Mini Mansions?

    They hail from California and the band is a musical venture that was born organically, fated from a shared love of punk rock and melody. Mini Mansions formed as jam sessions turned into recordings.

    Michael Shuman is the current bassist in Queens of the Stone Age, Zach Dawes has served as a studio hired gun and has worked with Brian Wilson, Kimbra and longtime mentor T Bone Burnett and Tyler Parkford releases music under his solo moniker Mister Goodnite.

    The Great Pretenders ambitiously reflects the depth, variety, and musical/compositional interplay between these three distinct individuals. It's also probably the only record you'll hear this year that features both Brian Wilson and Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner as guests – indeed, its entire song cycle teems with that kind of surprising discovery.

    Wow, wow and wow! If you can see these Manses, do it!
