Article Contributed by Pitch Perfect PR | Published on Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Almost two decades in, Mouse on Mars continue to be one of the most inventive and unpredictable groups in electronic music. Further proof comes with their first new album in six years, Parastrophics, out February 28 on Monkeytown Records. For the next week, leading into the album’s release, XLR8R will be streaming the album in its entirety.

A life affirming and constantly surprising album, crammed with ideas, addictive detail and sheer kinetic energy, Parastrophics displays a beguiling sense of confidence and playfulness, and a subtle, yet persuasive sense of control and pace. Even when tempos climb, 303s squirm and kick / snare patterns snap to brisk attention, there's an elegance and maturity to the way each element slips in and out of the mix.
