john maus’ third record, We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves, drops June 28th on ribbon music (north america) and upset the rhythm (rest of the world). details were announced today over at ribbon music, (whose site i happened to build and program), who calls “Quantum Leap” “the album’s first offering of extreme pop music beauty” and that’s not false hyperbole: something about maus’ crudely recorded music that hints at something higher, grabs you by the throat, and resonates deeply. the excellent single is available today on itunes. heavy rotation at weird magic headquarters.
Heart to heart / mind to mind / we are the ones who travel through time.
