Though the song itself comes off an album nearly five years old, this video for John Maus’s “Maniac” comes from a recent, sold-out performance at Brooklyn’s Glasslands Gallery. The black and white footage captured by Ian Perleman features a sweat-drenched Maus absolutely losing his shit on stage, beating his chest and screaming while his gloomily intoned vocal loops echo around propulsive, gothic stabs of synth. I really wish I had gone to the show now.
