Mouse On Mars Return with 'Parastrophics'
Published Nov 14, 2011Back in their heyday, German electronic duo Mouse on Mars released a steady stream of records, letting loose nine IDM-dabbling albums from 1994 to 2006, but not much had been heard from the band in the years since. While members Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma kept busy issuing solo sets, collaborating with the Fall's Mark E. Smith and producing records for the likes of Stereolab and Junior Boys, thankfully, the duo proper's dark days are over, as they've just announced their next full-length -- their tenth overall -- Parastrophics.
A press release explains that the knob-twisters are back with an experimental album full of "singing bass drums, screwed-up beats, tinnitus synths and some of the deepest bass the universe has to offer." Said to be "glamorous, funky and deep," the record follows their "darkest" set, 2006's Like to Flex.
The tracklisting and album cover for Parastrophics have yet to be delivered, but the collection was written and recorded in Berlin and will arrive February 28 via their new label home of Monkeytown.
