My college bound cousin visited Milwaukee earlier this week to get a feel for the schools and the city. It was exciting on many levels, but the most exciting was him telling me that he’d just seen Maps & Atlases at the Union Terrace in Madison. It was similar experiences that led me to Milwaukee for college. I wanted to be somewhere where there was a lot going on, plenty of live music to experience.
His comments also reminded me I’ve not yet mentioned my fondness for the new Maps & Atlases record, Perch Patchwork. It was actually the above video from Yours Truly that forced me to pay attention to the record. I’m so glad I did. “The Charm” has become one of my favorite songs of the year.
