The Guardian recommended "Maps" as one of the bands to watch in 2007, whilst Colin Murray included "Don't Fear" (not included here) as one of the best tracks of 2006.

On this mini-album, both are not wrong.

It sounds like the lovechild of the Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev, with a bit of Midlake and echos of Spaceman3 thrown in for good measure. Any sound which has been influenced by these bands must be worth at least a listen. To learn that it was recorded in a bedroom in Northampton makes it all the more stunning.

Maps must be going places - I for one will be following them.

James Chapman, aka Maps, has a special place in my heart. 'We Can Create' is one of the finest debut albums ever, taking the best of nugaze, The Stone Roses, Spiritualized and The Byrds and weaving it together with his own personal electronica touch. Start Something is the aptly named E.P. that set us on the road to that masterpiece.

The production is abit sparser, which makes a change on 'To The Sky' and 'Lost My Soul', and there is a real sense in the six tracks that Chapman was gathering his various thoughts. It is a very good E.P., but at the price for four new tracks (two appear on We Can Create) it is really for completists only. We Can Create is the essential for anyone, whilst Start Something allows us to look at Maps' infancy retrospectively.

Pick: Some Winter Song (if only because its Maps at his most J. Spaceman)

maps is a new band which has got a lot of publisity on radio 1's in new music we trust especially collin murray, and rightly so. A cool laid back band that seem to form the soundtrack to your life whatever your feeling

This mini-album is just as good - if not even better - than the 'We Can Create' masterpiece.

The melodies are lush and melancholic. James Chapman's vocals seem clearer in the mix. Songs like 'Sparks In The Snow' and 'Tonic Girl' are almost unbelievably lovely - they deserved to be on the main album.

This man is one hell of a talented musician. I can't wait for the next collection of songs.

But 'Start Something' is a gorgeous gem. Don't miss out on it...

James Chapman, is one of the best new sounds to emerge out of the UK this year. His music is propelled by searing keyboard arrangements and lyrics to move your soul. He creates compelling rythyms supported by a fourpiece band who interpret his musicianship beautifully. The music surges forth with fine guitar,electronics and the voice of an angel, haunting and heartfelt, with crushingly tender lyrics. It is surprisinlgy accomplished and self-assured. Maps is starting something in the land of squires and spires and its infectious so reach for your mouse and click on MAPS and experience a mastermind with a difference.
