about

Medical Maps are: Afshin Beheshti, Eric Provonsil, Greg Mahoney, Phil Mahoney, and Ethan Herschman.

Medical Maps is a band from the Boston area with a sound that crosses many genres. With touches of prog rock, indie pop, post rock and folk the material has something to offer to a diverse set of listeners. The signature sounds of the band are the swirling Fender Rhodes of Afshin Beheshti and the slide guitar work of Eric Provonsil. Many songs feature both while others have more of a rock sound with Beheshti switching to guitar. He has performed with Shore Leave, Divided Body and solo project The Afrosheens, playing many other instruments including mandolin and saxophone. Provonsil has previously employed his slide stylings with Tony the Bookie Orchestra and Broken River Prophet and is a frequent guest of the Thalia Zedek band. His mid 2000's band The Subject shared many a bill with Shore Leave planting the seeds for a future collaboration.

Beheshti and Provonsil began writing songs together in 2012. After several rhythm section permutations the lineup solidified in 2017 with the addition of Greg Mahoney and Ethan Herschman on bass and drums respectively. Mahoney is the bassist for garage rockers Triple Thick. Herschman is the drummer who has also plays in many bands including Bunch of Jerks, Lars Vegas, and many more. In 2019, Phil Mahoney has joined Medical Maps to add an extra layer of guitar. The group put their debut album, Soft on Crime, out in 2017. And now they are releasing their second album call Be Whelmed. Medical Maps’ second album is a fresh new sound which will unite fans of all genres and will provide hours of listening enjoyment for all.

Track Name: Different Shores
Seems just like another day
But the birds gave gone away
Up the coast to different shores
Time to fight another war
When the lights come over
And I leave my body
Stop the waves from rushing in
Let the reckoning begin
We are judged by what we bring
Never have to say a thing
When the lights come over
And I leave my body
Drift away and never look back to the past
Make it one more year
Generous and welcoming
Only when they pull the strings
Track Name: Now They’re Coming Back
Sonic hearts going for a ride
She seems to know what they want
Mono runs in a stereo world
I can’t play this tune again

Now they’re coming back
As we wait outside
Now they’re coming back
And this is about to end

Radio quintets are past
Fire above with no alarms
Latex sleeps for another year
For now it’s a hit song

Now they’re coming back
As we wait outside
Now they’re coming back
And this is about to end
Track Name: It’s Already Here
Its already here its already there
Find out about this find out about
Everything that's been happening
Turn off the TV keep your mind free
Sound off the alarm take cover from
Everything that's been happening
Keep up when the times are changing
Track Name: Return of the ATM Eggs
The quality of the state presses with cognitive unease
A flat, dull, and tired servant aims to please
They drop the arrogant façade as we press on
Carry with me this smirk we often use to see

The office asks us for privacy over this disbelief
While some try to plan for greater control
With the fighting infiltration they fail to achieve

They return to the scene with their portfolio
For there is no more that can be done

Do they require more fine tunes?
For this, what are we going to do?
When they utter this platitude
For this, what are we going to do?
Track Name: In The News
Its not my time to give away all this love
Do what you're going to do
You know I can't think about the old ways
Everything comes back again
Its all the rage its the latest new craze
That's all they're talking about
Nothing is real until its in the news
Nobody noticed thing
Too busy watching themselves
Out in the nighttime
Give us a hand when you go always together
Track Name: Early Morning Anthem
Everybody knows that we’re fading to the dusk
Everybody hears that the words are only staged
Everybody turns towards the signing of the leans
Everybody knows that we’re left here on our own

Every time they came we all felt the same
Celebrate away for it will never be this way
Everybody says that you will change the page
Nobody can be so wrong all this time

Eclipsed away, walking in the tubes
Little we will say, as the pictures are bought away
For this is the anthem where your heart should be
For this is the anthem where your heart should be

Everybody knows that the world has turned to fire
Anytime they laugh the singles will let out
Take another shine to the shots that we gathered
Everybody knows that we’re left here on our own

Eclipsed away, walking in the tubes
Little we will say, as the pictures are bought away
For this is the anthem where your heart should be
For this is the anthem where your heart should be

Let this time shine on
Let this time shine on
Let this time shine on
Let this time shine on
For all we need is to catch our breath
For all we care is for silence
For all we want is time to rest
Track Name: Part Time Extremists
These modern times, guides the way
After the play, the actors abbreviate
These modern times, guides the way
Part-time extremists will laugh on

These modern times, guides the way
After the play, the actors abbreviate
These modern times, guides the way
Part-time extremists will laugh on

The kids will play, with all to see
Binary equations, will cave in
Artists are behind, the world’s worst plans
Track Name: Roll Out The Flag
Roll out the flag you don't want to miss it
If you can't see it it never existed
All hands on deck for the great unveiling
See for yourself how the system is failing
These are the problems that won't go away
Not by the end of the day
Out in the west there's a big storm that's coming
Nail down roof and hold on to something
It all flies away at the speed of sound
Just try to keep your feet on the ground
These are the problems that won't go away
Not by the end of the day
When its all said and done and the dust has all cleared
This change has already begun
But its never too late to convince everyone we're the same
Track Name: Adjustment Bureau
Stay outside for this prototype
Is about to malfunction
April gives way to the warning of this escalation
The secrets will be inflamed with this constant chatter
Secrets will be inflamed with the Adjustment Bureaus

Let’s recap while we’re exposed
Time to recall all these warnings will be unexpected

The world’s most famous spy catchers
Delivers their manifestos
It’s time to pen an emotional response
For all the flagrant preservations
Let the festivals end these constant celebrations

Let’s recap while we’re exposed
Time to recall all these warnings will be unexpected
And the tablets will remain broken
And the bureaus will remain adjusted
Track Name: Born to Forget
Let the day shine on
First look at the right words
Satin jackets from a magazine
What are the odds that we’re too old

We’ve all been there again and again
You know you’re born to forget
Clever were all those years
Say goodbye to our great friends

Let’s imagine looking forward
The ideas will follow through
Breaking the mold won’t hurt
What are the odds that we’re too young

We’ve all been there again and again
You know you’re born to forget
Clever were all those years
Say goodbye to our great friends

Let the day shine on
You know you’re born to forget
Track Name: Am I Worried
Am I looking for something that isn't there ?
Do I want to find anything ?
The words to describe it are fleeting
These thoughts are just stuck in my head
Am I worried about it ?
When I can't find a way to get past it
I forget about everything else
I just want to know what I've got to know
But these thoughts are still stuck in my head
Am I worried about it ?
Telling you something that you already know
Things are always so magnified
When they're all that you have in mind
I don't want to waste my time any more
Track Name: You Can’t Chat Through a Buffalo Herd
Can you chat through this mess we have
Colorful comrades on the weekends are gone
Weapons are coughing during this dancing game
Left wing rodeo and a bag chips keep coming on

Blinding shines, finding times, heading home
Blocking kinds, typing fines, growing away
Blinding shines, finding times, heading home
Blocking kinds, typing fines, growing away

Time to predict our vitamin intake
After your playful casket is put away
The original manager is too far gone
The buffalo are coming home once again

Blinding shines, finding times, heading home
Blocking kinds, typing fines, growing away
Blinding shines, finding times, heading home
Blocking kinds, typing fines, growing away

Prairie homes are burnt for play as we watch this escapade
The wolves have churned through the mist as the crowd leads the way
Is it time to for us to quit? Since the herd never showed up
The nuts will be the last to leave, so as might as well just resign
