John Maus – We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves

Now out on Upset the Rhythm

Feature in The Wire

“Perhaps appropriately, Maus regards his latest work with a degree of ambivalence. ‘I was hoping this record would be some kind of transition into a middle period, you know, some kind of “[symphony] number three”. I had Beethoven’s Eroica in mind, in my own pathetic, caricatural way. But no, it ended up being more of a clarification or a consummation of what I’ve been working on for the last two albums.’ ”

Album review in The Stool Pigeon ****

“Here, Maus uses modernised synth reverb and arch muttering to great effect on a sinister and darkly entertaining record that is his finest yet.”
