A great mix of grooves from Chicago
's Scientific Map – well-crafted songwriting blended with more cosmic touches, and coming off unlike anything we've ever heard before! At some points, the set's got a straightforward drive that makes you think it's going for a bit of a crossover indie vibe – but at others, there's a much deeper soul that comes into play – and the shift between the two modes really keeps things interesting – especially given the lean production, and nice touch of fuzz on the keyboards and guitar! Anthony Nicholson recorded the album, but it's much more in the vein of previous work by vocalist Matt Hudson – and titles include "Saturn Return", "Roll It Into Romance", "Keep Sleeping", "Vijay Singh", "Photo 78", and "Slow 5".
