Talk about the perfect setting for a record release party. In honor of their new album out today San Francisco trio Geographer play an in-store set at 6pm tonight on the stage of Amoeba Music San Francisco. Of the new album  Myth - the group's second full-length released today by Modern Art Records- in conjunction with Warner Music's Independent Label Group, Amoeba.Com recently wrote:: Geographer teamed up with producer Eli Crews (tUnE-yArDs, Beulah, Why?, Deerhoof) and renowned mixer Chris Zane (Passion Pit, Walkmen, Holy Ghost!, Tokyo Police Club) to scrupulously craft the new record. On Myth, Mike's distinct melodic vocals flirt with dazed synth melodies and alluring guitar riffs; while Nathan's haunting electric cello cords and Brian's vibrant, powerful drums blend together to create a mind-altering, ten track album that is pulsating with complex polyrhythms and stunning harmonies.

Tonight's Haight Street Amoeba Geographer in-store will be a special acoustic set and, as witnessed from a recent acoustic set they did in a Mission District warehouse (scroll down to see/hear fan video) in which they did "Kites" off the new album Myth: they sound as perfect in live acoustic mode as they do on the record. No doubt  2012 will be the year for Geographer who have been honing that that perfect live sound by doing a lot of shows. Last year they played Noise Pop, Treasure Island Music Festival, and they've toured nationally with Stars and Ladytron. Check out two of the new album tracks (below photo) and expect similar moving versions of songs at tonight's Amoeba San Francisco instore at 6pm but get there earlier to have time to pick up the album and secure a good spot near the stage.
