Electro/Indie/Pop (Los Angeles)
Mansions on the Moon is a trio featuring Lane Shaw and Ben Hazlegrove (of Pnuma Trio) and vocalist/songwriter Ted Wendler. The group’s imaginative, burbling electronic creations and thumping beats have led to collaborations with N.E.R.D., Diplo, DJ Benzi and Chiddy Bang’s Xaphoon Jones, not to mention their own dedicated following. The group’s debut, Paradise Falls (“presented by Diplo and DJ Benzi”), is an infectious piece of work, through and through, from the creeping hooks to the Hip Hop-hinting production work.
