“Kites” – Geographer
Electric cello. Really I can’t say anything else. I’m a sucker for classical string instruments turned electronic, and Geographer does this well (especially live). I love the mix of the upbeat keyboard line and the deep, slow cello. Add on top of that Mike’s high pitched, crooning vocals and you’ve got a well balanced, fun song. My favorite part of this is sample is just under half way through when the beat kicks back in, and you’ve got the cello layered (almost in sync) to the drawn out “You.” I would highly recommend checking these SF natives live if given the opportunity. They put on a great show.
