Vicissitude (Mute Records)
release date: 7/8/2013
by Mike Delano
This is some chilly electro indie rock that you pretty quickly warm up to, in the vein of Junior Boys or Supersystem. Maps is actually one dude -- James Chapman from Northampton, England -- and "A.M.A." has a lonely sound, but it seems to be celebration of it rather than a lament. The song is from Maps' third album, Vicissitude, which Chapman describes as both darker and more positive than his previous works.
