Maps and Atlases - “You and Me and the Mountain”

Chicago quartet Maps and Atlases have just put the title track from their upcoming EP You and Me and the Mountain on their Myspace. They play a unique blend of math rock and freak folk, their songs finding a common ground between intimate and complicated. I had the pleasure of seeing them play Chop Suey last year for a crowd of about ten and each of the members skills were inspiring (almost to the point of personal frustration). It was one of those moments where you realize, “That’s amazing… I’ll never be able to do that.” Listen to tracks from their previous EP for some serious guitar work. They play next Friday, May 30th at Neumos with Foals.
