San Francisco's Maus Haus sound like a confection of Kraftwerk, the Beach Boys and Sonic Youth, ground up and re-formed into
a filet of raw cool. Amid bursts of glitchy noise, dirty drums and buzzy synthesizers, the band keeps the whole thing fun—with catchy vocals
and hypnotic rhythms. The band was awarded "Best New Synth Rockers" from SF Weekly and "Band of the Year" from The Deli Magazine.
