Mute Records releases the latest single, “You Don’t Know Her Name”, from Map’s debut this Tuesday.  It will be a digital EP and include the following B-sides: “Fall Apart”, “Elouise (Six Toes Mix)”, and The Field remix of “You Don’t Know Her Name”.

“The most astonishing thing about We Can Create is that it was created without the aid of computers. Spliced together on a 16-track, Chapman ends up creating an album that sounds like the love child of M83, Air, and even Stars. Ambitious and moody settings lay out a framework for his own delicate and vulnerable vocals to go down easy.  And indeed, this is an easily digestible album. While Chapman may be playing the same game as the aforementioned artists, he is certainly not yet as accomplished or adventurous. Yet, during the album’s best moments it is every bit as satisfying as Talkie Walkie or Before The Dawn Heals Us.”—Kevin Jagernauth, PopMatters review [7/10]
