A Few of Our Favorite Things: Life Size Maps

zj5HRsu-2eLdLm0VDEtsohiJEbnDEXvWjBA3Uk69gbc

Synthpoppers Life Size Maps finally released their self-titled full-length last week after bursting onto Brooklyn’s DIY scene as early as 2011. Their spirited brand of self-described “glitch pop” is fine-tuned and readily apparent on the new release, with frontman Mike McKeever’s emotive vocals clear at the front of the mix throughout. The four-piece blazes through the LP’s 12 songs with an unabashed ferocity — their crunchy drums and fast guitars managing to bleed between the surprisingly heavy electronics. It’s nothing short of a vicious debut.

Quite frankly, we had to know more about these mysterious electronic marauders and what influences their unique melting pot of sound. They obliged with a few or their favorite bands, shows, food, and places below.
