Mappe Of is the moniker of Canadian musician Tom Meikle, who makes delicately arranged, electronically-tinged folk music in the post-Bon Iver vein. A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone, his debut collection of otherworldly, atmospheric soundscapes, will arrive later this month, and he’s already shared early tracks like “Cavern’s Dark,” “Nimbin,” and “Peaceful Ghosts.” Today he’s back with “Ruin,” one of the more experimental cuts on the album, shifting from an elegiac hymn to feverish Auto-Tuned catharsis to a soothing acoustic lullaby over the course of its three and a half minutes. Listen below.
A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone is out 7/28 via Paper Bag Records. Pre-order it here.
