We Can Create


We Can Create is a hugely ambitious, widescreen and epic record that recalls everything from the far away electronics of Basic Channel and Carl Craig, through the skewed songwriting of Postal Service, Flaming Lips and Grandaddy to the euphoric sound-scapes of Sigur Ros and My Bloody Valentine. It is a work of heart stopping extremes.

Maps recorded the album without computers, preferring the painstaking process of splicing sounds together on Maps’ battered 16 track recorder in his Northamptonshire bedroom, and the results were subsequently co-produced by Valgeir Sigurdsson (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Bjork) and mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, Hope Of The States). Maps has remixed Depeche Mode, Public Service Broadcasting, Susanne Sundfør, Moby, C Duncan, M83 and more.

Nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2007 on its original release, this
limited edition re-pressing of 1000 Copies is on Double Green Vinyl with etched D-Side.
