There’s a snoozy insularity and strange weightlessness to John Maus’s We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves: This dreamy Jennifer Juniper Stratford-directed video of Maus camping out at home, walking alone in the snow, getting silently psyched on action films, driving his car by his lonesome, and making use of a satellite dish in his Austin, Minnesota work well with that overall vibe as well as with “Head For The Country,” specifically.
