John Maus - 'A Collection of Rarities and Previously Unreleased Material' [Album Stream]
Lo-fi pop musician John Maus is releasing a highly anticipated b-sides collection of sorts, titled A Collection of Rarities and Previously Unreleased Material next week but in fantastic news, you can hear the entire sixteen song compilation through streaming today (via Gorilla vs. Bear here).
The majority of the tracks on the record were recorded between 1999 to 2010 and it's been professionally remixed and remastered for the new release. Although the compilation consists of several tracks that fans may have already heard, it's mostly certainly worth a listen just for the few that you may not have heard yet.
The physical album will also be available in a beautiful pink vinyl package as you can see from the picture above.
Lots of good news for John Maus fans today! It's been announced that he's making his return to the UK in August. [read more]
