Perch Patchwork

“Solid Ground”


In a musical landscape pitted with pop stars and pigeonholes, Maps & Atlases defy easy categorization, choosing to walk their own incomparable path. Beware and be grateful builds upon the Chicago-based band's acclaimed Barsuk debut, Perch Patchwork, melding their trademark experimentalism with a more direct — though no less beguiling — songcraft. The new album abounds with invention, spanning hymnal harmonies, percolating rhythms, even, in the case of centerpiece track silver self, a full-on guitar solo. Songs like remote and dark years and winter are gloriously liquid and lyrical, channeling M&A's maximalist creativity into a truly inviting brand of boundary-busting, asymmetrical pop.

Dave Davison of Maps & Atlases On Tour with Anthony Green 15 Nov 2013

Dave Davison of Maps & Atlases is pleased to announce dates opening for Anthony Green of Circa Survive. Davison will be main support for the majority of Anthony Green's Young Legs tour, playing songs from the Maps & Atlases catalog, his solo project Cast Spells, and new unreleased music.

Davison joined the tour in Denver, CO, coming off of Maps & Atlases' performance this past weekend in Seattle, WA at the Barsuk Records 15th anniversary celebration, where he and the band appeared on one of the celebration's five great shows, alongside Menomena and Phantogram on a bill that also featured rostermates Say Hi, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and Yellow Ostrich.
