Mouse On Mars "Dimensional People (Thrill Jockey)"
Two things. 1.) Mouse On Mars are back! 2.) Mouse On Mars are back on Thrill Jockey! After some notorious dance floor releases, Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner have returned with a thought-provoking collection of tunes, mostly all 145 bpm, and mostly all segueing into each other to create a full-length story with their collage-esque danceable music. Dimensional People is a dizzying collection of dance hits, hip-hop, sci-fi landscapes, and everything else you’ve come to expect from the unexpectable duo behind Mouse On Mars. Intended to be produced as an art installation wherein guest musicians would be invited to do whatever they feel like doing during the performance, the final album gels so seamlessly that whether this was intended as a hive mind album or not, it doesn’t matter (though in this instance part of the hive does feature a vocal turn from Justin Vernon!).
