Do you hold your electronic music to high standards? If so, you should be listening to Geographer. Are you only happy when you’re listening to haunting beats and driving synth-chords? Then Geographer is definitely your bag. Is melody as important to you as rhythm? You guessed it: Geographer. They manage the rare feat of making music that is catchy without relying on earworm hooks to hold you hostage until you’ve formed a Stockholm Syndrome-esque attachment. These aren’t songs that get stuck in your head; they are invited guests that you gratefully allow to become part of you.
Geographer is a project that started small but has snowballed into musical excellence. When vocalist Mike Deni came to San Francisco with his guitar and his synthesizer, his sound had a cello-and-drum-kit-sized hole in it. Fortunately, Nathan Blaz and Brian Ostreicher arrived on the scene with the missing pieces to the Geographer puzzle. Already a beloved fixture in the San Francisco Bay Area music scene, the trio has begun making waves in the indie consciousness. With two albums under their belt and an acclaimed live show, Geographer is ready to break out into the big time. Poised on the edge of exploding into the very fabric of pop culture, you have the rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor of what is sure to be a phenomenon. Don’t miss out!
