Summertime dance tunes

More danceable than indie/math rock band Maps & Atlases’ previous albums, “Beware and Be Grateful” is not only entertaining but perfect for summertime.

“Fever” and “Silver Self” are two of the most energetic songs on the album, and opening track “Old and Gray” shows the band’s ability to combine harmonization and syncopation to create exceptional music.

Staying true to their roots, Maps & Atlases still has a very distinct sound. “Beware and Be Grateful” has a more polished, straight-from-the-studio feel, yet it is still very characteristic of the band’s sound.

Lead singer Dave Davison’s distinctive voice shines throughout the album, and interesting percussion instruments are also thrown in. 

Fun and well composed, “Beware” would make an excellent addition to your music collection.
