I SLEPT ON THE SOLID GROUND NEAR YOUR HOUSE

Although not as blaring as former Sargent House label-mates and recent ATG favorites Tera Melos, Maps & Atlases have also been known for their quirky variety of math rock.  Seriously, these dudes have dropped guitar riffs angular enough to put Pythagoras to shame.  The Chicago four-piece’s latest release, Perch Patchwork, sees the band’s usual eccentricity infused with a hefty dose of melodic pop and folk.  The result is an album that is a hell of a lot more accessible than their first two EP’s but still fresh and interesting.  The guys recently released a video for their soulful single, “Solid Ground,” which you can watch above.  Perch Patchwork is out now on Barsuk Records.
