Too Pure, on the album ROST POCKS, collects tracks from the numerous and varied Mouse on Mars EPs. And it's quite an overview of their career, from the spacy and wiggling "Frosch" to the hectic “Twift,” after which point they began releasing on their own Sonig label. Though trainspotters who already own the releases will groan, the casual listener will find this collection the motherlode. From the swinging "Bib" to the dubby "Schnee Bud," Mouse on Mars embraces the melodic (“Schnick-Schnack”) as well as the noisy (“Rototon”), the experimental (“7000”) and more conventional (“Lazergum”). Undoubtedly, the highlight is the delicate chanson "Cache Couer Naif" featuring the French vocals of Laetitia from Stereolab, a favorite of mine to this day. As an album, though, it lacks a certain cohesiveness, but that's somewhat to be expected, considering the format.
