Having missed them last time they played NYC, I was lucky enough to catch Maps and Atlases at the Filter Culture Collide party during SXSW 2011. Since the release of 2010’s excellent Perch Patchwork the band has been keeping themselves busy on the road and most recently with the release of a new EP, entitled Living Decorations. The Living Decorations EP includes:

…new remixes and live tracks not previously released on Perch Patchwork, including remixes by Andy Monaghan of Frightened Rabbit, Josh Morrissey and Friendly Ghost as well as a live version of the Perch Patchwork favorite “Solid Ground” recorded live at Electraplay Studios in Columbus, OH.

They’ll be in town on Tuesday night (April 19) for a one night stand at the Bowery Ballroom (Buy Tickets), so if you’re not attending the second seder, I suggest you check them out.
