By the time John Maus released his fourth studio album, Screen Memories (2017) , he was already familiar to a passionate international audience. Previous albums Songs, Love is Real, and We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves - along with a reputation for unbridled live performances - had earned Maus this global niche audience. Newer releases Screen Memories and Addendum — along their supporting tours — have brought his music to an audience that has grown exponentially in the last two years.
Modern Maus classic “Dumpster Baby” (from 2018’s Addendum) was a clear inclusion in WMF’s Top Tracks of 2018 list, and — as confirmed by John Maus himself — the track hints at exciting creative avenues that the artist may be pursuing in the near future. Most recently, the inclusion of Maus classics “And the Rain” and “Cop Killer” in the Netflix series Russian Doll have boosted the reach and fan-base of Dr. Maus even more — a trend that shows now sign of slowing in 2019.
