It’s been about six years since the pioneering German glitch duo Mouse On Mars came out with Parastropics, their last album. And this spring, they’ll return with a new LP called Dimensional People. Mouse On Mars recorded most of the album within a single tempo, and it was inspired, so they say, by Chicago footwork. It’s also an album full of guest stars including the National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Beirut’s Zach Condon, Spank Rock, Amanda Blank, Sam Amidon, and Swamp Dogg. First single “Dimensional People Part III” features vocals from Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon. Mouse On Mars chop his voice up into shards, weaving it into a soundscape that has a bit of jazz and classical in its DNA.
