Maps & Atlases
Not only are these guys promoters of plaid (as evidenced by the above photograph), they’ve also been pretty high on my radar lately. Listening to Chicago-native Maps & Atlases is a bit like listening to the musical equivalent of a Redbull, and that’s not a bad thing. With some crazy guitar riffs and constant movement, Maps & Atlases is far from dull. Get in touch with your rhythmic side and give them a listen.
Their latest release is an EP entitled You, Me and the Mountain (2008)
