Friends of Tricycle Records Compilation Vol. 1 Free Download

As we enter our 5th year as an independent record label, our only regret is not having the resources to work with every talented artist that approaches us. So we decided to release a special compilation of local acts that have made an impression on us this passed year. Friends of Tricycle Records Vol. 1 features unreleased tracks from up and coming Bay Area artists including:  Ash Reiter, Murder of Lilies, Rich Girls, Fake Your Own Death, Kill Moi and Tomihira. In addition we’ll be spotlighting unreleased tracks from our own roster off new 2011 releases from The Union Trade, The Frail and The Northern Key. We also know you Geographer fans are getting antsy waiting for their new record, so we are including a special remix of Verona done by dance music producer Adeptus and our good friend DJ Omar.  Special Thanks to sound engineer Ben Bernardy at Different Fur Studios and Nina Asay for this amazing cover art.

Congratulations to Geographer for their SF Weekly Award 2010 ”Best Local Version of Radiohead”

“At first listen, you wouldn’t compare Geographer to Radiohead. The local trio consists of a skinny, long-haired dude playing one of those electronic cellos, a boxy-shaped baldie behind the drum kit, and a bearded New Jersey transplant with his fingers on stack upon stack of keyboards. But when the threesome launches into a tune like “Original Sin” from its recent Tricycle Records EP, Animal Shapes, the same undeniable wow factor is at work. Mike Deni’s falsetto is as strikingly beautiful an instrument as Thom Yorke’s, while the epic cello parts, the clubworthy programmed beats, and the otherworldly guitar riffs recall the best of Kid A. Picked by Spin as one of “Three Undiscovered Bands You Need to Hear Now,” Geographer may just be San Francisco’s next big thing. Radiohead, take note.” – SF Weekly
