Life Size Maps Release New EP


Brooklyn based alt-rockers and friends of the site, Life Size Maps, have officially released their new EP, Magnifier. The EP represents an evolution of sound for the band, as this new grouping of tracks is both noisier and more complex.

The band kicked things off with a release party at Monster Island Basement in Williamsburg with Dino Walrus, Total Slacker and Soft Black. Visit the band’s myspace page MySpace page. And, in the meantime, be sure to listen to our exclusive preview of the band’s new track “This Same House,” down below.

Introducing Life Size Maps


Life Size Maps, a three piece band from New York City, have had an exciting time the last few weeks. The trio played 4 CMJ showcases and were featured on the front page of Sonicbids as a CMJ Spotlight band.

Life Size Maps make dreamy pop-rock that lead singer Mike McKeever describes as “restless powerpop influenced by misplaced nostalgia.

Over the last year or so, the boys have played gigs at Glasslands, Public Assembly, Bowery Electric, Bruar Falls, and Cameo Gallery. In the coming weeks they can be found at venues in Brooklyn and Manhattan. A full list of dates can be found at the band’s MySpace page.
