Maus Haus at Silverlake Lounge Tonight
“Leave it to the weirdo mecca of San Francisco to produce a smart psych rock band in Maus Haus that practices the biggest rock perversion of them all - complete lack of guitars. Hailing from the Bay Area, Maus Haus combine a paranoid insomniac vibe with playful pop lines and cleverly cinematic lyrics that make them out to be the bastard child of Kraftwerk hanging with Captain Beefheart that would obviously have a video starring Simon Le Bon and the boys. That is an admittedly nutso sentence, but it's hard to pinpoint exactly what Maus Haus is - other than totally rad.” – RCRD LBL
We've listened to MH's full roster of Myspace songs at least 6 times today. The band will be direct support for Chk Chk Chk (!!!) during Noise Pop in San Fran this February. Maus Haus plays tonight at Silverlake Lounge w/ Pomegranate (also from NorCal - Oakland), The Californian and Melanoid.
