[ELECTRO-CHAMBER POP] Synth-y San Franciscan trio Geographer is the kind of band that seems to constantly draw comparisons: M83, Passion Pit, STRFKR. SF Weekly named it the “Best Local Version of Radiohead” in 2010. But it typically has enough of its own thing going on to stand out from the indie-electro crowd in its own right—namely an electric cello and the gorgeous falsetto chops of lead singer Mike Deni—and previous releases Innocent Ghosts and Animal Shapes rightfully generated a decent serving of buzz and some high expectations for the band. Its 2012 release, Myth, is slightly more problematic. The songs seem lovingly composed, Deni’s vocals are richer and more haunting than ever and the whole disc is more mature and less reminiscent of other groups than earlier efforts. But it is simultaneously less memorable. With the exception of a reworking of the band’s 8-bit inspired ’09 single, “Kites,” there is no single track with the pop sensibilities of those on Animal Shapes, opting instead for an overall darker and less dance-floor-friendly sound.
