[QUICKIE] Geographer – MYTH (w/ “Lover’s Game”)

and when i close my eyes my mind starts to running,
but it’s you i want to see

Not all jams are this tops but general high grooveability. Let the sonic waves wash over you like an aural massage. I dance yet I am calmer.

[Quickies are mini-reviews that can fit into a 140 character tweet. They are of albums that people already know of but perhaps are curious about our take on it. What did you think of the disc?]

[MP3] Geographer – “Life of Crime”

this life was made for something, but it wasn’t you and i, we all were born from nothing, and we will never die

♫ Geographer – Life Of Crime

  • Who: Mike, Nathan, Brian
  • What: Big hook rock, like Ra Ra Riot, Walk The Moon, Passion Pit
  • Where: San Francisco, CA + Facebook
  • When: New LP Myth is out now.
  • Why: Besides my insane love affair with “Kites” I never really got into the rest of Geographer’s stuff. That may all be changing now as “Life of Crime” is getting some serious play these days. It’s a big room filler with spacey synths and a huge beat. The kind of song that stomps its way through your mind, leaving a deep footprint. Time to dive into Myth! ANd catch the video for “Kites” as another excuse to groove out to that one.

The 25 Best Songs of 2010… Since Then (July-Dec.)

Here it is, for better or worse, for agreement or not, my list of the top 25 jams that rocked and/or rolled my ass during the second half of 2010. This is the 4th such list in TBE history and by far the most quality collection. There were  so many tracks that didn’t make the cut, and so many more that I think should be ranked higher. Can’t put ’em all in the top 10, now can I? Anyway, like all my lists, the ranking is loose. The quality, however, is tight as a drum… a tom-tom drum, perhaps…

25. ♫ Wiz Khalifa – Black & Yellow / Annnnd, this is why we don’t do year end lists before the YEAR ENDS. A late entry to my iTunes and an instant favorite. Swagger city up in this one! Push to start!

24. ♫ Fabolous – You Be Killin Em / Naw, Fabo, YOU be killen ’em. Niiice.

23. ♫ Muscles – Girl Crazy Go / Should be called “Brandon Crazy Go” cause that’s what happens. It’s like Read more

♫ Geographer – Kites

Shit man, this is what I’m talking about. Crazy noodling keyboards laced with angelic vocals that then break into a goosebump inducing beat that continues climbing and soaring like a [insert non-kite metaphor here]. B at Audiomuffin turned me on to this San Francisco 3-piece a while back and I have been in love with this track ever since. Geographer was started by Michael Deni after the unexpected death of both his sister and father. The weight of those experiences come across as the music is more than just sugary synths but has a soul that anchored it to my ears on the first listen. Their debut LP Innocent Ghosts came out in 2008 and this year saw the release of the Animal Shapes EP [home of “Kites”]. I will be going to get both albums on eMusic right about…… now!
