This week on Featured Album Fridays, I am highlighting the 2009 album from Maps – Turning The Mind.
Here is the description of Maps from his Last.FM:
MAPS is from Northampton, UK. This page is the official page for this artist.
The music is made by James Chapman, with August joining in for live stuff. Their debut album ‘We Can Create’ was released in April 2007 on Mute Records and their growing fanbase includes the likes of the Chemical Brothers. They were shortlisted for the well respected 2007 Mercury Music Prize album of the year, which saw their profile rise dramatically. The download-only single from Maps’ second album – ‘Let Go Of The Fear’ was released in May 2009, new album ‘Turning The Mind’ was released late summer.
Great electro-pop sounding album, definitely the style that I am going for right now. I definitely hope you end up liking it as much as I have! The stream is below, enjoy!
