Get lost in Geographer's perfectly crafted, fourth studio album, Ghost Modern. The San Francisco natives prove that in a landscape of obfuscated indie electronica, there is still a place for exact lyrics, heartfelt storytelling, and mellifluous composition. Songwriter Mike Deni drew inspiration for the album from his view over the cliff of the Presidio of San Francisco, and it makes sense; many of the songs rise and fall like soft, sonic waves.
Pleasant as it is, though, the album is tinged with existential crisis: “The general theme of the album is picking up where I left off with Myth and saying, 'great, so life has no discernible meaning or purpose, and your life is a dream.' I thought that was the most important thing, to pull back the covers on that situation, on the lies we feast on to keep calm. But the truth is, you're still stuck here, whether it's meaningless or not," said Deni.
