RIYL: Ariel Pink, R. Stevie Moore, Part Time
Label: Ribbon Music
With exception to a compilation of rarities released in 2012, we haven’t heard aĀ new studio track from John Maus since he released his breakthrough 2011 album We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves. Ā For the unfamiliar, John Maus exists in the unremembered momentsĀ of decades past, in the scrambled multi-colored fuzz from an old TV set, in the broken synthesizer collecting dust inĀ your backyard shed. Ā Part philosopher, part pop star, John Maus is truly a unique voice in music today and a powerfulĀ force on stage.
Call it whatever you want. Ā Call it autistic baroque synth pop, just make sure you don’t sleep for long because Maus’ fanbase is wide and vast. Ā Check out his newest single below and grab some limited wax from Ribbon Music after the ‘buy’ link. Ā ALSO, if you need to have absolutely everything in his discography, you’re in luck! Ā Ribbon just released a box set with every album Maus has written to date as well as another new album exclusive to the set. Ā WHAT!? Ā Grab that one HEREĀ if you dare for a cool $110.
Limited edition LP pressed on TV snow color 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
Pre-order and receive an instant download of āThe Combineā and a download of Screen Memories on its October 27, 2017 release date.
Screen Memories was written, recorded, and engineered by Maus over the last few years in his home in Minnesota. Itās a solitary place situated in the sub-zero winter temperatures creep into the songs as do the buzzing wasps of summer.
