Maniac is a synth-punk project from Indiana and when you listen to them you’ll probably agree with the person who commented “it’s like Alan Vega fronting Movement-era New Order” on youtube. That masterpiece is from Anti’s upload of a self-titled 2018 tape, later released by Discontinuous Innovation. Check out Sean Albert’s video from way back when below. Following their second tape 69,000 Maniacs: Are You One? that came out at the beginning of summer, they’re now back on Goodbye Boozy with yet another release. This time it’s a 2-track flexi, but no less impressive. “Chance” and “Run” are both great punk songs blending kraut with Suicide’s desperation.
