Find your way with Maps

First off, Maps is UK native James Chapman.

Second, his debut album We Can Create, which was released in June and was spliced together in his bedroom sans computer and instead recorded straight into a 16-track recorder, has been shortlisted for the 2007 Nationwide Mercury Music Prize.

Third, there's still time to see him live if you happen to be a North Americaner who lives near an ocean. Check out dates below.

Fourth, in the meantime, if you haven't experienced Maps' flavor of electronic, shoe-gazey, emotionally charging music, listen below.
