Maus In The Haus 

SOTW is slowly learning to use Blogger in its new incarnation...  Since we're behind in our Songs of the Week, here's 'Believer' a cavernous lo-fi new-wave mid-week treat from the hard-to-categorize John Maus.   This 32-year-old Minnesota composer-performer-producer has a distinctly avant-garde and artsy take on synth pop,,,,

It was Pitchfork's Top 100 Tracks of 2011 that brought Mr Maus to my attention... that, and his memorable album title, 'We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves,'   When I ponied up 10 bucks for the whole album, I was not disappointed!

Maus' 'Believer' video is as distinctive visually as the song is aurally...  "Created using a mixture of rare vintage video equipment and experimental techniques the new video for Believer takes us deep into the often blurry yet always determined world of John Maus."
