DOWNLOAD: John Maus - Mental Breakdown
Weirdo atmospheric pop master John Maus is following-up last year's most-excellent We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves with a rarities collection set for July 17 on Ribbon Music. The tracks span from 1999-2010, but they've all been remastered and remixed. Here's a little sample with "Mental Breakdown." The 2004 cut is rough and lo-fi but maintains the jarring vocals, bleeding synths and (most importantly) ear-warming melodic sense of his best work.
