[SPRAWLING INDIE ROCK] In listening to Maps and Atlases, it’s obvious the band draws from a hefty variety of influences. There’s much to pick out in the Chicago group’s music, between the math-y guitar phrases, worldly percussion rhythms, looping audio samples and thickly textured vocal layers. But, where artists often use complicated arrangements and unusual time signatures as distinguishing characteristics, Maps and Atlases—particularly on last year’s Beware and Be Grateful—masks its musical nerdiness with catchy vocal hooks, simple melodies and slick production quality to make the songs more accessible to the casual listener. In doing this, however, the clearly talented quartet sacrifices cohesiveness by unapologetically patching all of its wandering ideas together.
