FOMO #12. I BREAK HORSES. GEOGRAPHER. AT THE ECHO. 5.23.12.

WHAT I BREAK HORSES SOUNDS LIKE: HEARTS MP3

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS OUT:

Whether they’re getting BNTed by Pitchfork or a called a best new band of 2011 by Stereogum, I Break Horses is finally coming by the Echo and you won’t want to miss the dreamy noise tonight. NPR puts it best when they say ‘while an acting inhabitant of the chillwave scene, I Break Horses builds walls of glorious distortion, and the fog of Lindén’s vocals seems to sparkle in the places where light breaks through.’ We recommend you find that out for yourself.

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS OUT:

Geographer was named an Artist to Watch by SPIN a few years ago and they haven’t looked back! KEXP agrees: ‘In the past, they’ve stuck with straightforward electro-pop with a touch of chiptune cuteness, mixed with the occasional mellow jam. But with Myth, Geographer goes in a different direction, taking their danceable, pop sound to a full band context without losing their audience. It is their most accessible album to date and hosts some fantastic songwriting, that at times resembles Grizzly Bear, and at other times resembles the Helio Sequence.’ In other words, be sure to come down to the Echo tonight — this band is going to keep on growing and quite quickly — they play Outside Lands Fest in August!

TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE BUT THEY’RE GOING FAST AND BE SURE TO CATCH OPENER OLD TOY TRAINS. DANCE TIME.
