Maps & Atlases
Lightlessness Is Nothing New

After a long six years out of the game, Maps & Atlases return with a new LP. Anyone expecting the time-signature acrobatics of math-rock milestones like Perch Patchwork will need to leave those preconceptions at the door though, because what we have here is a full-on indie-dance record. Lightly funky in that sort of The Antlers/Reflektor-era Arcade Fire way, Lightlessness Is Nothing New is straight-up pop music.

Maps & Atlases
Beware And Be Grateful

Their second full-length after a trio of unique EPs that tried to extend math rock out to different palates and distances, Beware and Be Grateful is Maps & Atlases using the urgency of their favourite genre for emotive, self-contained pop songs with harmonious structures and personal song-writing. Supposedly inspired by artists like Six Organs of Admittance and Prince, the record shows the band at their catchiest, with "Remote and Dark Years" intended as a dance track (if dancing is always slow, always sad and always about the end times).
