[mp3] Maps and Atlases: “Fever”
April 17th, 2012 by Matt
One of my co-workers put on Maps and Atlases’ Beware and Be Grateful on the stereo while we were working. I was coming up and down from the basement at the time, but each time I was in the upstairs area, I felt more and more grabbed by what I heard. I asked what album it was and have been spinning it ever since.
I would’ve sworn that I’d heard nearly ever album Maps and Atlases have released, but I can’t imagine that’s true now — there’s no way I would’ve kept ignorant of a group this good if I’d spent even a little time with them before. They combine the best moments of TV on the Radio, the Dirty Projectors and occasionally Bowie and the Talking Heads. My favorite track is the opener, “Old & Gray;” so when you go buy this album (on sale today) that’ll be the first thing you hear. Until then, enjoy “Fever,” another great track from early in the album.
