Album Review – Uncut – July 2011

WE MUST BECOME THE PITILESS CENSORS OF OURSELVES

John Maus on Upset the Rhythm Records

****

Written by Sam Richards

“The third solo album from former Haunted Graffiti man. Anyone who’s enjoyed a fruitful encounter with Ariel Pink’s home-recorded oeuvre should also find plenty to love about John Maus. His delivery is similar to that of his former bandmate – an enigmatic low croon bolstered by eerie falsetto harmonies – and while… Pitiless Censors is wreathed in nostalgia for the gothic synth-pop of the early ’80’s, its too odd to be simply retro.” ……for more you need to buy Uncut!
