In celebration of Glassjaw of having new music released for the first time since 2002, this post is not about Glassjaw but a Glassjaw side-project called Geometry.

Geometry was one of Daryl Palumbo's many side-projects that were started but never seemed to come out with any official releases.  Geometry though was a fully-encompassed band that featured Kamen Goddard, Matt Mateus and JJ Onthesun on guitars, and from J. Majesty there was Jim Kimball on bass and Dale W. Miller on drums.  Supposedly Jeremy Chatelin of Handsome was originally the singer of the project before Jim Kimball moved to New York and recuited the rest of the band.  There were no offical releases besides a Live Demo.  There was an album called "Ear To The Ground" that was planned to be recorded at some point, and there are a few tracks from the sessions that were leaked a few years ago.  Their shows seemed to mainly be in the city, Miller recollects shows at Brownies, Arlene's Grocery, LES and CBGB's. 

I'm not entirely sure what happened with the band, outside of everyone seeing to be busy with other projects. Kamen and Matt both went on to do scores for movies, Dale joined Palomar, Jim joined Retisonic, and JJ joined Walking Concert.

The music has a kind of interesting reggae vibe on the tracks.  This download is for the 4 "Live in the LES" demo tracks and the two studio tracks that were recorded for the proposed "Ear to the Ground" album.
