9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 11 July 2012

It’s pleasing to see that in the same week R. Stevie Moore’s career gets its much needed day in the sunshine (thanks to a compilation on O Genesis) John Maus would also rear his head with a collection of unreleased material.

This collection on the increasingly dependable Ribbon Music couples a number of not-really-released-properly tracks from Maus’s free upload ‘Demos in 2011’ with a few super rare treats that have been doing the rounds on various small press releases and limited singles over the past ten or so years. Released on a limited run of 3000 copies it’s also a testament to the artist’s increased popularity as 3000 copies is fucking loads in today’s struggling music market.

So, here we have sixteen slices of outsider synthpop of the highest calibre with Maus’s twisted, agitated creativity in full and consistent flow. With his lo-fi, home produced style now fully formed Maus’s music has taken on a new clarity with everything presented here having some pop credibility whilst betraying the very principle with its innately experimental take on genre pop.

If you enjoyed ‘We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves’ then you’ll dig these ‘80s obsessed homages to the ultra silky synth-pop the likes Duran Duran, Japan, Human League and Depeche Mode used to knock out back in the day. The songs are chocker full of ultra-dramatic yet ice cold synthpop that can’t help but please. Emotional stuff. Roll on the new album for reals.
