If you were to take the technical musicianship and forward-thinking mindset of the Dillinger Escape Plan or Daughters, and transplant it into a jazzy indie rock context, you’d probably get something like Maps & Atlases. It takes some time to really dig into and appreciate the complex instrumentation these guys cook up on Trees, Swallows, Houses, but give it some patience and the seemingly impenetrable flurries of notes and odd rhythms suddenly seem to click. The more you listen to this EP, the more it reveals its secrets, its nuances, and its subtleties: The mark of a quality release by some extremely talented musicians.
