Album at a glance: Maps For Travelers – Change Your Name

Maps For Travelers - Change Your NameIf you are into amped up guitars and passionate screaming vocals you will love Maps For Travelers’ first full-length album “Change Your Name.” The tracks on the record are painted with distorted guitar textures that will bring to mind Cursive and The Desaparecidos. Crunchy riffs are in abundance on songs like “Matter of Time” and “Get a New Face” while slow building songs like “Swoon” are still right in this band’s wheelhouse. The songs are best when the lyrics are delivered intensely but with short of a screaming vocals like on “World on a Wire” You should listen for the honest lyrics, but you’ll stay for the power guitar hooks

Key Track: “Matter of Time”
