Synth-pop luminary Geographer recently released his newest album, Down and Out In The Garden Of Earthly Delights, an 18 track voyage of synth-pop bliss. Formed in San Francisco, Geographer is the moniker for now Los Angeles-based artist Mike Deni. Earlier this month he announced a headlining U.S. tour that will launch in San Francisco on March 8th and includes stops in Chicago, Boston, New York, and more before wrapping on April 16th in Phoenix, AZ.  He is also confirmed for Treefort Festival and for the Just Like Heaven Festival 2022.

ABOUT THE ALBUM & GEOGRAPHER:

“I hit a ceiling in San  Francisco. I was writing a lot more songs with people in LA, so I moved down. I didn’t really have any friends and just spent way too much time alone, making music. I wasn’t thriving, I was surviving. Everything feels possible here. That’s the vibe of LA: You’ve made it to paradise! You should be really happy...and then nobody is. There’s a lot of darkness —you have to sift through everything to find your own path,” remarks Deni. While recording his album, engineer  Jules de  Gasperis showed him an image of the famed, 15th-century triptych painting “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” depicting alternate realities of paradise, hell, and reality. “It’s like, why are we all so bummed out? We are all miserable.  And  we’re  in  paradise.” And thus, Down and Out in the Garden of Earthly Delights—recorded between Spring and Winter of 2019 —was born. Part social scientist, part troubadour, if Geographer is an expert at anything, it’s precisely chronicling life’s imperfections. He has headlined many national tours, played Outside Lands, Firefly, and other festivals, released two critically acclaimed albums, and performed with such musical luminaries as K.Flay, The Flaming Lips, Young The Giant, Tycho, Ratatat, Betty Who, and Tokyo Police Club.
