John Maus (born February 23, 1980) is an American avant-garde musician, composer, and a philosopher. A keyboard player for Panda Bear and Ariel Pink, he has released three albums of his own music to acclaim. He grew up in Austin, Minnesota. He is known for his eclectic samples when composing, "an almost absurd mix – a stand-off between taut, bass-driven post-punk, whooshing electro-pop and, thanks to the chants and bleak intoning, Medieval and Gregorian disco."

Far from a footnote release, this is more valuable material from Maus.

Maus has given his skewed, 80s-inspired synth-pop some almighty new hooks.
