    Dave Davison, Shiraz Dada, Chris Hainey, and Erin Elders met while attending art school in Chicago and formed Maps & Atlases in 2004. The bands unique style melds the technicality of progressive rock and the idiosyncrasies of Art Rock into a fascinating and oddly accessible sound all their own. Known for their virtuosic musical ability, Maps & Atlases write pop songs with a magnificent aptitude for texture and a distinctive blend of both the intricate and organic. While 2007's Tree, Swallows, Houses showcases the bands more technical side, their latest offering You And Me And The Mountain, presents more earthly and digestible songs that has earned comparisons to TV On The Radio, Deerhoof, Minus The Bear, and Foals.
