Make plans now to head to MOTR Pub to see Maps & Atlases tonight! It’s a FREE show from the Chicago “math rock” band. Get there early for a spot, you will kick yourself if you miss this show.
Earlier this year, they released their latest album, Lightlessness Is Nothing New.The upbeat album was inspired by the death of singer/guitarist, Dave Davison’s father.
According to Jared Bowers of CincyMusic, “The new album isn’t necessarily a return to the sound that helped in the continued alteration of my perception of both music and musicality, but it wasn’t quite as… languid as their last two full lengths, either. More reliant on synth work and electronic flourishes, tighter, punchier production, and definite pivot towards pop, Lightlessness Is Nothing New has the potential to do something for them that I wouldn’t have considered even remotely possible a decade ago - bring them into the wider music listening public’s consciousness.”\
