Maps & Atleses

Birthmark (5/10)
Start 20:15 / End 20:45
Instead of just Maps & Atlases and some local support band, the gig has been opened by two other bands coming from another scheduled concert at Marie Antoniette that has been unfortunately cancelled for some reason, maybe just too few tickets sold on pre-sale. Birthmark is a one man band playing an Indie Pop with guitar and sometimes live drums upon a preset base. Some songs was interesting but the whole performance was nothing special and a bit boring with too loud basses that often covered the rest of the music.

This Town needs Guns (6/10)
Start 21:00 / End 21:35
I’ve listened many This Town needs Guns’s albums and I have to say I’m not that big fan, their Indie pop/rock is too clean, too sweet, too teenager-oriented, so I was pretty skeptical at the beginning of their concert. I’m happy to have received a positive surprise: they have a fucking amazing drums and guitar work that make you forget that voice (I mean the voice is pretty nice but it doesn’t work well together with the rest in my opinion). They played many songs of the last album and the public received them in enthusiastic way, even because they sound good and the band offered a great performance. I promise I’ll listen again and deeply their last album trying to overcome my problem with that so clean voice! They’ve deserved it.

Maps & Atlases (8/10)
Start 22:00 / End 23:15
Maps & Atlases are simple. But simple in the best meaning of the word. They result catchy and accessible just because they are great musicians and songs composers: it’s not easy for all to melt together Folk, Pop and Math-Rock with these high results! If you don’t know them, please listen their first albums where the Math-Rock component is more prominent. They played many songs of their last work that is more Pop oriented than the others. I have to say these songs sound live great and fascinating too! If you have the possibility go to see them live, do it! You won’t regret!
