Maps and Atlases // The Life and Times // Julius Ryan
Undoubtedly a double bill to remember.
Maps & Atlases' unique style melds the technicality of progressive music and the idiosyncrasies of art rock into a fascinating and oddly accessible sound all their own. They are known for their virtuosic musical ability, writing pop songs with a magnificent aptitude for texture and a distinctive blend of both the intricate and organic.
The Life and Times has lived a thousand lives since their first record more than 12 years ago, after the dissolution of Allen Epleys former band, little guy cult faves Shiner. This 5th full-length album is a sun and drug-dappled beauty, infused with a thick sonic kaleidoscope of tones. More immediate and to the point than previous releases, power and beauty hold the cards ultimately.
