New Video + Tour Dates : John Maus : Head For The Country

We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves. Easily one of the best album titles of the year. Maybe one of the best albums of the year. Whatever John Maus is cooking up out in Austin (that’s Minnesota, not Texas) it’s evidently working for him.

The record’s second single, Head For The Country, begins with what sounds like Madonna’s Lucky Star cannibalizing itself, just before taking a hard left and venturing into uncharted territories of what can only be described as chill wave in low altitude orbit.

To enhance your enjoyment, Head For The Country comes complete with a suitably low-rent sci-fi video directed by Jennifer Juniper Stratford. Behold the desolation and despair of Minnesota in the winter!

We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves officially comes to Earth via Ribbon Music on June 28th.
