iTunes Review

Mike Deni—Geographer's lead vocalist, who also plays guitar and synths—once said in an interview that he wants to “make soulful music from outer space.” Considering the strange sense of fragility underlying Geographer's grand, pulsing synths and cavernous drums, Deni can cross that goal from his to-do list. At the heart of the band's music there’s also a sense of longing, an emotional tug, that brings to mind both Coldplay and New Order. Upbeat numbers (like the dance floor gem “Lover’s Game” and the bouncy, guitar-driven “Myth of Youth”) can’t resist turning quiet and introspective enough to slow the dance floor action. The washes of synths on the chillwave-kissed “Life of Crime” and “Kaleidoscope” are painted in melancholic tones. When Deni delivers an ephemeral, operatic howl atop Nathan Blaz's somber cello (as on the lovely “Kites,” which also appeared on the 2010 EP Animal Shapes), one marvels at the band’s vision. This collection seems to be about social myths (youth, love, trust), and it makes a deeply stirring and eloquent soundtrack for charting a path into adulthood.

Give it a listen. You won't regret it.

I'm a huge geographer fan. I first heard this album and was slightly underwhelmed... But after about two listens I think it's amazing. So even if you think you won't like it, take a little bit of time, and you'll find yourself in love.

Incredible.

I have been looking forward to this album for a long time, lived up to my expectations, exceeded even! Its so mind chilling and at the same time exciting and intriguing. Feels like laying in a wheat field atop a cold but beautiful mountain. One of the best synth oriented bands in the genre, and in my top 4 favorite artists (the others being M83, the xx, and of course, Passion Pit.) Favorites so far are THE BOULDER, Vesijarvi, Lover's Game, and Life of Crime. THANK YOU GEOGRAPHER AND KEEP MAKING AMAZING MUSIC LIKE THIS!

Home run! Out of the park!

Great sound, great show!!!! We love our music.... Austin, Texas- Bring it back!!!!!
