Watch: Maps & Atlases perform “Winter”

When it comes to experimental indie folk math rock, Maps & Atlases have the market cornered. The Chicago-based band pairs their gentle folksiness with enough jagged-edged guitar licks, deft instrumentation and power pop beats to keep everyone interested. The music that Dave Davison, Shiraz Dada (bass), Chris Hainey (drums), and Erin Elders (guitar) play ranges from wistful and lonesome to downright danceable with a little bit of everything in between. When we invited them to play a set for us at this year’s SXSW, we weren’t sure which sound we would be hearing from the Barsuk recording artists. Luckily when it’s Maps & Atlases playing, whether up-tempo or lighters-in-the-air slow, whatever their sound, you know it’s going to be good and they did not disappoint.

Watch Maps & Atlases play their song “Winter” live at the IFC Crossroads House at SXSW 2012:
