Music: Scary Mansion

Casey McKinney


Wish I knew what a thunderstick is, the seemingly miraculous instrument that Brooklyn based Leah Hayes aka Scary Mansion uses to make her infectious noise-pop sounds. Gotta get one of those things, or better yet get back to NY to see Leah at Zebulon in Brooklyn on March 9th. Comparisons are to early Cat Power, but the influences on her myspace page are of a less obvious brew, from Air Waves to the Teeth. Grab your own adjectives, but the shit’s good.
