Maps is the third album from Sacramento quintet Soft Science on Test Pattern Records. The ten tracks show the dreamgaze auteurs taking the best parts of shoegaze and dreampop, and crafting a sound as tasteful as pizza. This is an album from a band that has matured into one of the most articulate and irresistable bands to come out of California in a long time. With enough musical chops to fell a forest and the siren like musings of vocalist Katey Haley, the band bangs through tracks that will stir the loins. This is an absolute must have.
