Geographer Releases "Lover's Game" Video, Tours with Freelance Whales

San Francisco’s indie-pop trio Geographer recently released a video for the catchy-gone-existential “Lover’s Game,” from their most recent album Myth.

Appropriately set at night in the Nevada desert, the video portrays humans as aimless lights in the dark.  It is only after two individuals meet that their faces emerge, and their interactions are consecrated by a stretchy, colorful goop. Fun fact: that stringy goop is mostly a substance called Oobleck, AKA cornstarch and water, which thickens under the force of sound vibrations. Cool.

Geographer is combing the country on its Myth tour with Freelance Whales. It sounds dangerously close to the premise of a kooky children’s book, but it should also make for a great concert.

Freelance Whales announce new album "Diluvia" + play Webster Hall on 11.01

Freelance Whales could be described as one of the more "easy listening" bands produced by the NYC scene in the new millennium. Still, their complex and inventive sound is a perfect example of what makes the NYC scene so special, i.e. a concentration of musicians who are here to push the creative envelope.

After a first album that gave them international fame in 2008, the Whales are announcing a new full length for the fall, entitled "Diluvia". The band is also going on a US tour in October, and will return to NYC on November 1st for a show at Webster Hall.

Fans can download a free song from the upcoming album here, and stream 2 of them here.
