Maps: We Can Create (Mute)
release: June 19, 2007
style: lovely electronic with vocals
similar: M83, Luke Slater
rating: ****
This is what i'm talking about. Maps (James Chapman) is many good things: psychedelic, soothing, cosmic. We Can Create is neck deep in synth strings, Chapman's whispery, layered vocals and percolated percussion. All done on a 16-track without computer. Spectacular. -Kenyon
