3D Country in the flesh: Geese for Free at Noon - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

It may come as a bit of a shock to hear that a band from New York is spearheading an influx of country influence in the indie/alternative rock world, but trust me – if anyone can do it, it’s Geese.

WXPN welcomed Geese to World Cafe Live Friday August 11th to get a glimpse of what their latest full-length release, 3D Country, has to offer. Suffice it to say, it offered quite a lot; effortless, nonchalant live vocal delivery (courtesy of frontman Cameron Winter), intricate yet powerful moments of noisy tension, and the occasional return to Tennessee dive bar-esque form to round it all out.

Playing some of the highlights from their newest album – although one could argue that each song deserves such praise – Geese had the WCL audience in the palm of their hand, with fans shouting out the band’s more conversational lyrics while belting along with Winter on their more soulful tracks. Drummer Max Bassin’s use of the cowbell was nothing short of brilliant, alongside a sizzle chain that amplified the cymbal tone in tandem with an overall high-powered performance. Fusing guitar, bass, synths, and – wait for it – the keytar, the members of Geese affirm the beauty in collaborative experimentation, all under the pretense of fun. As Winter said himself, “If you’re listening on the radio, shame on you for not coming.”

(Another note about the keytar: the keytar solo during the album’s title track rocked my world, and as I took a look around the room, it was clear I wasn’t the only one with my jaw dropped.)

Geese are launching their 3D Country Tour this fall, hitting The Foundry on November 10th. Make like a flock of birds (is that too much? Actually, to hell with it, I don’t care) and grab your tickets before they sell out; details at WXPN’s Concerts and Events page.
