One of our favorite Bay Area bands Geographer have released a new video for one of our favorite songs ‘Lovers Game’!  The video was shot in Reno, NV with directors Tony Benna and Ethan Indorf in conjunction with San Francisco-based creative agency Mekanism. In the video, the band employs the use of a gooey substance called Oobleck, a combination of water & starch. Its viscosity is such that it physically changes properties between liquid and solid when encountering sound vibrations. Geographer is in the midst of a nationwide tour with Freelance Whales. The dates will take them across the country, with stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Nashville, New York, Philadelphia and more. See below for more information.

The tour is in support of their widely-praised new album MYTH, released earlier this year on Modern Art Records. Geographer teamed up with producer Eli Crews (tUnE-yArDs, Beulah,Why?, Deerhoof) and renowned mixer Chris Zane (Passion Pit, The Walkmen, Holy Ghost!,Tokyo Police Club) to scrupulously craft MYTH.  The 10-song set features Mike Deni‘s distinct melodic vocals flirt with his dazed synth melodies and alluring guitar riffs; whileNathan Blaz‘s haunting electric cello cords, and Brian Ostreicher‘s vibrant drums blend together to help create the mind-altering, ten track album that is pulsating with complex poly-rhythms and stunning harmonies.
