Map of What is Effortless paints the most natural colors possible. Like all good adventures, this one’s diverse, from the Ron Isley-like vocals of L.A. songwriter Damon Aaron and the detached chanteuse musings of L'Altra vocalist Lindsay Anderson, to the juxtaposition of the Loyola University Chamber Orchestra with synthetic percussion. The title track, a gorgeous ambient orchestral piece, slips into a sexy electronic soul tune, "Nothing Is Worth Losing That," whose lyrics contemplate the dark place Eustis and Cooper were in at the time of recording. Heavy shit for a couple of laptop R&B fanatics from the Bayou. Lightness comes in the form of "My Week Beats Your Year," a bit of Princely robo-funk adorned with Anderson's spoken-word brag, while "I Lied," anchored by Aaron’s vocal about long-developing situations, sounds like a Dirty South Morr Music remix. "What It Is Without The Hand That Wields It" shows them in a dark atmospheric mode, aware that a move to Chicago brings them to the spiritual home of industrial music.
