Only 300 pressed! John Maus returns after a 6 year absence with his 4th full-length album via Ribbon Music. After touring 2011's incredible We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves Maus receded from the public spotlight returning to his academic pursuits. Years later after completing his doctorate in Political Philosophy he began building his own modular synthesizers etching the printed circuit boards soldering components and assembling panels until he had an instrument that matched his vision. Whilst often described as retro-futurist on behalf of the 80’s drum machines and synth sounds employed Maus’ music is more personal than the nostalgic re-tread implied. He’s more interested in seeking cadence through his love of Renaissance polyphony and the experimentation behind post punk. It’s an amalgamation of musical ideas as radical as its intent. The album was written recorded and engineered by Maus over the last few years in his home in Minnesota known genially as the Funny Farm. Screen Memories is a stunning return from Maus who shows us what we've been missing all these years!
