Mouse On Mars are recognised as one of Germany’s most defining and versatile electronic music projects. With their anarchic mixture of sound that oscillates between uncontrollable chaos and meticulously arranged structures, Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma have forged a unique musical language, which is readily decomposed by the unpredictability of its myriad mutations. Free from schools of thought, genre conventions and the constraints of the music establishment, they have worked under the Mouse On Mars alias for 24 years, mapping their own idiosyncratic trajectory through a no man’s land between pop, art, club music and the avant-garde.” – Jan Rohlf

Idiology takes the acoustic experiments of ‘Niun Niggung’ even further, and it’s this combination of electronic and ‘traditional’ music – melding keyboards and synthesizers with French horns and guitars and trumpets into a seamless whole – that points the way through the dead-ends of most electronica. – PopMatters

Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner continue to create soundscapes that blur the line between programming and live musicianship, and sometimes between Earth and outer space.” – The A.V. Club

Mouse On Mars are to release the forthcoming ‘Dimensional People’, their brand new studio album, via Thrill Jockey. The album is to feature Werner and Toma joined by a number of prolific guests: Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Zach Condon (Beirut), Spank Rock, Aaron and Bryce Dessner (The National), Swamp Dogg, Eric D. Clarke, Lisa Hannigan, Amanda Blank, Sam Amidon, Ensemble Musikfabrik, and about 20 more musical collaborators.
