Download: The Mabuses--"Mirth"
Download: The Mabuses--"Seasider"
Who are the Mabuses? Multi-city, multinational, multitalented, and many other multis. A lot of guys who get together and assembled their third record, Mabused, a sprawling quirk-pop masterwork that has no paucity of great ideas. They just keep rolling them out until the end. It's got shades of XTC, Super Furry Animals, Olivia Tremor Control, you know, the good ones. As for the band members themselves? Well, that's a bit of a mystery, isn't it?
Also, the listen to the whole album, which is streaming at Stereogum.
