This is the debut album by Maps and Atlases, a cool band from Chicago, who makes very cool music. They're kinda math rock, but their math is at an Algebra 1 level, meaning they have some technical guitars and drums and such, but nothing that will leave the listener confused and/or bewildered. This is nice, easily digestible indie pop/rock. Of course, easily digestible doesn't make it simple. There are some really awesome melodies and licks in here, as well as some awesome segues and such. Definitely one of the best of 2010 so far.
