Maps and Atlases

With “Perch Patchwork” Maps & Atlases have released one of the most amazing albums of 2010, one of these records that have no weak points. Thus, we were very keen on getting to do a session with them during their Vienna visit in February, also having seen some examples of previous videos they’ve done for other blogs (like this one for Yours Truly). All the more enthusiastic we were when the Chicago-based band agreed to squeeze us into their tight schedule. The cold winter evening excluded any outdoor shoot and time constraints more or less forced us to just move all the stuff upstairs in the venue and do the filming there. Maps & Atlases set up in front of the big window towards the busy G├╝rtel road and quickly start into an inspired performance of their fantastic current single “Living Decorations”. Followed by an equally convincing rendition of “If This Is”, the four guys easily manage to fill the empty venue with energy and beauty and leave us happy and satisfied despite only having a 20-minutes time slot.
