I’ve been working on this mix for awhile now. A collection of songs that may, may not or most assuredly have influenced John Maus. Parallels, paths, phases abound trying to trace an influence wherever it can be found. A task I’ll readily admit is difficult with an artist like John Maus who carries such a distinctly unique sound. Enjoy (it at night).
3 highlights from KP 1:
Peter Davison – Shadow 
Peter Davison is a world. This song from 1986 (and really his entire incredible discography) feels like it had a pretty profound effect on Maus’ own music.
John Maus – (Untitled) 
An early John Maus demo that is such a revelation. Had to throw it on this mix.
Experimental Products – Sweet Rejection 
When the chorus kicks in this song gets so infectiously heavy.
Cold as always, 1 and 1 will make 3…
