Mini Mansions Guy Walks Into A Bar album coverC’mon, that TITLE!?
According to suave frontman Michael Shuman (also QOTSA’s bassist), Mini Mansions’ third set – which was written and recorded in real time – documents a real relationship.

Standout track/lead single GummyBear – with its creepy, The B-52’s-inspired synth – has swag for days. Bad Things (That Make You Feel Good) flirts with Devo’s Girl U Want and The Kills’ Alison Mosshart smoulders in saucy duet/ second single Hey Lover.

You’ll pray for an ice bucket challenge to cool down after I’m In Love‘s sleazy vocal delivery and fuzzy riff: “It’s sweeter than what you might blow up your nose.” Spoiler: it all winds up with Tears In Her Eyes. Make no mistake: Guy Walks Into A Bar… is no joke.

Guy Walks Into A Bar… by Mini Mansions is out July 26 via Fiction Records/Caroline.
