((Uninhabitable Mansions)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Uninhabitable Mansions

Brooklyn's Uninhabitable Mansions feature Robbie Guertin and Tyler Sargent of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Annie Hart of the underrated Au Revoir Simone, along with Chris Diken and Danny Comer. But they're not just a band, they're an art collective, too! Go to their website to check out all the creative hijinx they've been up to.

But back to the music. Considering the roster, I guess this is the part of the write-up where we decide how much or how little they sound like Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Well, Uninhabitable Mansions is definitely pop. So there's that. And this band makes you feel good when you listen to it. So there's that, too. And occasionally there's a little bit of that CYHSY swooping and sliding "warble." So there's that, three. But that's about it.

Phew, glad that's over. Anyway, this is just a good guitar pop band that throws in some interesting keyboard arrangements (thanks to Annie). So if you want another comparison, think of Uninhabitable Mansions as similar to Television going on an easy journey to outer space. Yeah.
