Cat’s excellent Maps & Atlases are on UK shores. Since their formation in 2004, Maps & Atlases have captured the indie imagination with polyrhythmic beats, elaborate melodies, and post-rock ingenuity. With its blend of avant garde audacity and pop craftsmanship, ‘Beware and Be Grateful’ stands firmly in the great art rock tradition, a model synthesis of novelty and tradition, of listen ability and invention. Maps & Atlases have crafted a collection of resplendently human music, its intricate dynamics wholly matched by ornate wells of deep emotion.
