Freelance Whales Live with Geographer @ Trees, Deep Ellum TX 10-10-12

Oct 11th, 2012 : by :: Tags: , ,

Keeping with their longstanding tradition, Freelance Whales put on one helluva show last night. Having just released their latest and greatest album, Diluvia (streaming here), they were very eager to play the new stuff. What’s great about watching these guys is witnessing each member spend equal amounts of time on every instrument on stage, from the banjo in one song to the xylophone on the next. And with a sprinkle of Weathervanes tunes played throughout the night, their set was stellar. Opening the night was Newdust faves Geographer, who, needless to say, were fantastic. I’ll let the videos do the rest of the talking; above is Freelance Whales’ performing one of their new tracks, “Land Features”, and below is Geographer opening their set with “Lover’s Game” from their latest album Myth.

Geographer – Animal Shapes EP

Jul 2nd, 2010 : by :: Tags: , ,

Given the growing amount of emerging and oh-so-good indie talents hailing from San Francisco today, there’s definitely something going on in the Bay Area, leading to successful sound experiments and daring melodies paired with unique voices.  Voices inspired by a great range of intense emotions, from the purest joy to some kind of vintage nostalgia.  Though not quite newcomers, with a 2008 self-released album, “Innocent Ghosts”, synth-pop band Geographer is no exception to the rule.  Voted one of the three “undiscovered bands you need to hear now” by SPIN Magazine, Geographer turned our heads with their one-of-a-kind combination of Nintendo-like electronic melodies, cello, simple drums and Mike Deni’s beautiful and almost fragile voice.

“Kites” is the first single from Geographer’s new EP Animal Shapes, which is available on iTunes and at Tricycle Records. This track has a radiant gracefulness and overall thrill that will be sure to light up your day.
