Indie Band The Gallery Releasing New Album February 22

Massachusetts indie-folk rock band, The Gallery, will be releasing their new EP, Come Alive, on February 22 produced by Warren Huart (The Fray, Augustana, Hot Hot Heat) at Hollywood’s Swing House Studios.

The independent band’s hook-laden rock songs combine a mix of mainstream appeal and professionalism with indie credibility and likeability. Their brand of guitar-driven, southern-infused pop rock blurs the lines between authenticity and commerciality, producing songs that are refined and disarmingly catchy.

The foursome, Brendan Cooney (lead vocals/guitar), Ryan Cooney (drums), Dave Mozdzanowski (bass/bg vocals) and Shea Brennan (lead guitar) have maintained their hometown fan base in New England, while building a similar following in Southern Florida, where they resided for three years.

The Secret Handshake Announces New Album Release Called “Night & Day”, Free Mp3 Download

Secret HandshakeThe Secret Handshake (Luis Dubuc) is gearing up to release his sixth studio album, Night & Day August 17th, 2010 on Triple Crown Records and is currently on tour playing new songs from the upcoming release.  The first single “Domino” is available today for free download via Facebook here: http://bit.ly/aBsjB1.

It is an album title that truly signposts a major sea change. Night & Day holds fast to its title’s pronouncement of seemingly polar opposites. The gripping melodies are still firmly in place, but that’s where the similarities between Dubuc’s back catalog and his latest creation end.

For the past several years, Dubuc and his fusion of sugary pop hooks, laid atop a host of samples and caked with computer-enhanced effects, created the signature electronic-pop sound that landed him the sort of success that many artists in indie circuits could only wish for.
