Maps & Atlases are one of my favorite bands to listen to as of late. Therefore the release of a new album is quite exciting. Fans, you'll have to wait just awhile yet as their second album, entitled Beware and Be Grateful is due out via FatCat on April 16 (USA April 17).
This new album is full of all sorts of marvelous sounds and melodies. It has definite electronic influences and some experimenting has been done with vocals and voice-sounds. It creates a very ambient feel. This video contains a bit of a preview for the album.
