John Maus's deadpan baritone delivery atop his signature jigsaw synth pop is familiar, yet completely idiosyncratic. His headbang-inducing live sets are even more perplexing, contorting the crowd just as easily as he contorts his expressions. One of our favorite tracks by Maus is "Pets" for its pout-making chorus "Your Pets are Gonna Die". This poster is a homage to that song with its centralized figure on the absolute verge of being pulled apart.
