Listen to Mouse on Mars' 'Parastrophics' LP Now
- Words: Patric Fallon
If you listen to electronic music and you don't know who Mouse on Mars is, there might be something wrong with you. German producers Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma have been crafting their unique strain of dubby, glitchy, and oddly catchy experimental music for nearly two decades now, and the number of albums, EPs, and singles the pair has released is even higher than the number of years they've been active. After an uncharacteristically long break following 2006's visceral Varcharz LP, the production outfit has returned with its latest full-length, a 13-track record for Modeselektor's Monkeytown imprint called Parastrophics, which you can now listen to in full ahead of its release next week.
Presented as one track in the player below, Mouse on Mars' new album is yet another undiscovered chapter in the group's saga of rotating influences and challenging output, as contemporary club sounds and unusual source materials are spliced in with crunchy glitch beats, playful synth melodies, and punishing bass frequencies throughout the 46-minute Parastrophics. You can hear it all below, and make sure to look for our extensive feature with St. Werner and Toma when it premieres next week.
