John Maus

July 4, 2009

Went to the Upset the Rhythm showcase last night at Monster Island in Brooklyn. It was a really good line up of acts including Soft Circle, Silk Flowers, John Maus and others. It was also really crowded and a total sweatbox and they weren’t letting anymore people in. I did make it in towards the end and caught the John Maus set which was pretty awesome. Basically it was him singing over his own tracks but he did it with such total abandon and intensity that it really worked. It probably also helped that I’m a big fan of his music and he played some of my favorite songs. Above is a video for a song called Tenebrae off of the excellent Love is Real album on Upset the Rhythm.
