Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly - 'Maps'

Album Info

  • Release Date: May 7, 2012
  • Label: Cooking Vinyl
5 / 10 If you’ve read or heard anything from Sam Duckworth in the last few years, it’s more than likely he’ll have been bigging up the Occupy movement or raging at the coalition government rather than playing you any of his music. He clearly knows that politics is his calling these days – a figure in the Guy Fawkes mask synonymous with recent protests even pops up on the sleeve of ‘Maps’. Musically, this is business as usual: clip-cloppy beats, acoustic musings, and lyrics equal part introspection and riotousness. It’s passable, with the odd highlight like ‘Vital Statistics’ along the way, but to stay in the limelight it looks like he’s going to have to keep to championing those causes.
