New Mansions in Sound

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mark Deming
Fastbacks managed to pare themselves down to a mere three drummers while recording New Mansions in Sound Mike Musburger played on 13 of the album's 15 cuts, while Jason Finn and Nate Johnson each sat in for one song, and the resulting album is a good bit stronger than their previous set, Answer the Phone Dummy. Fastbacks' punk quotient isn't especially high on this set though "555 Part One" and "The Bitter Drink" will satisfy those looking for a fast-loud fix, but their pop side is in unusually solid form; Kim Warnick and Lulu Gargiulo have rarely sang so harmoniously, and songs like "Fortune's Misery" and "No Information" are so catchy it's hard to imagine anyone being ...

Fastbacks' punk quotient isn't especially high on this set though "555 Part One" and "The Bitter Drink" will satisfy those looking for a fast-loud fix, but their pop side is in unusually solid form; Kim Warnick and Lulu Gargiulo have rarely sang so harmoniously, and songs like "Fortune's Misery" and "No Information" are so catchy it's hard to imagine anyone being able to resist them. The band's choice of covers on this set also makes for a lovely balance of sublime vs. ridiculous, facing "Space Station #5" by Montrose against "Girl's Eyes" by the Who. Solid, joyous, occasionally poignant, and lots of fun -- in short, another slice of brilliance from Fastbacks. By the way, the "e.v." credited with singing backup on "Girl's Eyes" is noted Fastbacks fan Eddie Vedder, who can be heard offering the engineer 100 dollars if he'll please erase his vocal and let him try it again.
