WHITE MANSION – Everything In This Room Falls
Shindig Rating: 9.0
Fayetteville synth-rockers White Mansion have been kicking around the Northwest Arkansas DIY scene since their experimental 2015 self-titled release. Comprised of vocalist Dusty Domino, guitarist Travis Keymar, keyboard wizard Andy Wade, and the rhythm section of bassist Jim Looper and drummer Eli Barrett, White Mansion have created a formidable beast of a band on both stage and record. A recent outing at George’s Majestic Lounge left such an impression that George’s staff was messaging Shindig with praise about the band before their set had even ended.
Their latest release, Everything In This Room Falls, shows a band starting to hit it’s stride in both songwriting and arrangements. From the slow build of moody opener “LIZARD | QUEEN” to the epic goodbye of “FADED,” the album stands as one of the most impressive releases in a year already chock full of bonafide local classics (Ashley McBryde, Ghost Bones, Elephantom, Ben Miller Band).
Simply put, this band sounds huge! Much too big to remain in the rut of Northwest Arkansas’ current DIY scene. Based on the level of street buzz surrounding the band, the once impractical idea of conquering the big rooms of George’s Majestic Lounge and the Revolution Music Room has now become an inevitable one.
