    • Nurses - KOLKATA, INDIA - SEPTEMBER 19:  (EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE) Nurses tend to patients on the converted DC-10 Aircraft that charity Orbis uses as a flying opthalmic hospital at Kolkata airport on September 19, 2013 in Kolkata, India. During her solo visit to India the Countess is supporting the sight saving charity ORBIS. The Countess witnessed patients' surgery and met patients' during her tour of the plane. She also met medical volunteers from around the world who share their skills with local eye care workers to improve eye care in local communities.
    • Nurses - Public workers, small political parties and non-profit organisations stage a protest against government austerity measures on February 23, 2013 in Madrid. Nurses, doctors, students, miners and members of Spain's 'indignant' movement against economic inequality join in the so-called 'citizens' tide' against the steep spending cuts and tax hikes imposed by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's conservative government to slash the public deficit. The day of protest coincides with the 31st anniversary of the failure of right-wing military coup that sought to crush Spain's young democracy and restore military rule.
    • Nurses - Doctors and nurses dance the tango with inmates during a session of tango therapy at Borda hospital in Buenos Aires, on September 23, 2009. During the tango therapy program conducted in the largest neuropsychiatric hospital in Buenos Aires, professionals and patients become dancers and during a weekly hour they move in time to the music declared humanity's 'intangible cultural heritage' by Unesco on September 30, 2009, adding its sultry dance steps and melancholic song lyrics to UNESCO's heritage list.

    Screw GPS. Maps & Atlases just need their names to go on tour. Name aside, maps and atlases are visual representations of areas and are instruments that show you how to get from A to B and the real things are so quaint, aren't they? We love and miss those days. We also love this indie rock band named Maps & Atlases.

    The band will support Beware and Be Grateful, due to drop via Barsuk on April 17. The album was recorded last year in a series of week-long sessions at Omaha's ARC Studios with producer Jason Cupp (Nurses, Good Old War) once again behind the board.

    Since their formation in 2004, Maps & Atlases have captured the indie imagination with their extraordinarily artful amalgamation of polyrhythmic beats, elaborate melodies, and post-rock ingenuity. The band toured hard from the get-go, honing their kinetic time signatures and inventive energy through countless live shows as both headliner and alongside such artists as Broken Bells, Frightened Rabbit, Circa Survive, Cults, and RX Bandits.
