John Maus launches tour

If you’ve ever watched a video interview with Minnesota-native John Maus, his twirling hands, violent head shaking, and incoherent philosophical ramblings are enough to write him off as some over-eccentric madman with an affinity for synth-pop. But with a closer listen, you can’t help but nod your head at his plea for a new language for a modern generation—a task that’s the driving force for his third LP We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves, out June 28 on Ribbon Music.
