After branching out from his work as Queens Of The Stone Age bassist, Michael Shuman has gone on to perform with his band Mini Mansions around the world. They are now about to play Austin Psych Fest and a few gigs with Tame Impala. Having just released their second album The Great Pretenders, Shuman talks to us about translating the 9/10 NME-rated album into live shows, collaborating with Brian Wilson, and writing more honestly.
