Maps & Atlases is an indie rock band which formed in Chicago, Illinois, United States in 2004. The band consists of Dave Davison (vocals, guitar), Erin Elders (guitar), Shiraz Dada (bass) and Chris Hainley (drums). The band released their long-awaited first full-length album, Perch Patchwork, on June 29, 2010. The record was produced by Jason Cupp (The Elected, Nurses, Cast Spells). The members of Maps & Atlases met in Chicago while attending art school, formed the band in 2004 and have released two EPs through indie label Sargent House. While Tree, Swallows, Houses showcased the band’s more technical side, the subsequent You And Me And The Mountain presented more earthly and digestible songs that earned comparisons to TV On The Radio, Deerhoof, CAN, and even Prince.

Maps and Atlases is a vocal math rock outfit that has put together two EPs of which You and Me and the Mountain is the second. Five relatively short songs are all we get. But in fine math tradition, the band packs quite a bit in at once.
Maps & Atlases’ early EPs featured the group pushing the technical limits of their abilities by embracing musical tactics like tapped guitar parts, syncopation and polyrhythms. But with their newest album, Beware and Be Grateful, Dave Davison (guitar/vocals), Erin Elders (guitar), Shiraz Dada (bass) and Chris Hainey (drums) have refined their early sound without entirely ditching it. 2010’s Perch Patchwork, their first LP and release on Barsuk Records, showed a gradual change. On Maps & Atlases latest record, the Chicago quartet continues their musical progression.

Maps & Atlases is an exception. Maps & Atlases is truly talented and onto something special. While Perch Patchwork is quite a departure from their first two EPs, Maps and Atlases have crafted a wonderful tapestry that, while not shying away from their earlier work, charts new territory with the introduction of different sonic elements, exhibiting maturation in musicianship and song writing that should please current fans while drawing interest from those who desire unique and interesting alternatives to.
