Album Review

Intense and disorienting, Stop It's Self Made Maps takes the shouted vocals of early Fugazi and melds them with propulsive dark wave music that shifts from frantic and unrelenting to melodic and stoned. In this respect, songs like "Name + Number" seem closest, at least in mood and style, to Sonic Youth (circa Daydream Nation) on a Minor Threat kick.

Self Made Maps is not a perfect album, but it is so overflowing with aggressive energy, ominous moods, and spiraling complex progressions that it hints at Stop It's potential to be the next At the Drive-In: uncompromising, difficult, and willing to experiment.
