Savage Mansion - Revision Ballads

Can I draw your attention to Revision Ballads the debut album by Savage Mansion which has just been released on Lost Map Records the label run by The Pictish Trail on the Isle of Eigg.

It is very good indeed and I recommend that you pop over to Bandcamp where it can be purchased at a very reasonable price.
Savage Mansion is the non de plume of Craig Angus  described on the Lost Map site as a Glasgow based purveyor of scuzzy slacker guitar pop,
That description alone should have you reaching for the purchase button.

It reminds me a bit of Pavement and Lost Map seemingly agree describing the music as wearing its influences from the Velvet Underground, Neil Young,REM, Pavement and Parquet Courts proudly on its sleeve

Here's a taster

Mr Angus is clearly a man in a hurry as while Revision Ballads was only officially released on 15th February he has already stuck out a video of Karaoke which will feature on the follow up album Weird Country.
Something to look forward to

  1. Karaoke is very Pavement. I like the crap dancing in the first video too.
