''One of British music's brightest hopes for 2007'' - NME

''Some of the sweetest, darkest, most heart-meltingly beautiful melodies you will ever hear'' - The Guardian

A bedroom genius in the truest of senses, the other-worldly atmospherics of Maps are even more amazing for the fact he recorded the whole album without computers, preferring the painstaking process of splicing sounds together on his battered 16 track recorder in his Northamptonshire bedroom. The results were subsequently co-produced by Valgeir Sigurdsson (Bonnie, Prince, Billy, Bjork) and mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, Hope Of The States).

A hugely ambitious, widescreen and epic record that recalls everything from the far away electronics of Basic Channel and Carl Craig, through the skewed songwriting of Postal Service, Flaming Lips and Grandaddy to the euphoric sound-scapes of Sigur Ros and My Bloody Valentine, 'We Can Create' is a work of heart stopping extremes.
