Maps & Atlases:: Perch Patchwork and dates

I’ve had a hard time taking Perch Patchwork out of the rotation.  The new album from Chicago’s Maps & Atlases is very likeable, not sounding like everything else and more importantly not boring. What else do you need to know? Some of the asymmetrical lines and other melodic creativity remind me of what has drawn me to the more remarkable hardcore and punk acts from the last decade, though this is neither.  These songs are little machines; a sonic Mousetrap game of sorts.
