August 12, 2010 – The Secret Handshake (Luis Dubuc) will releasing his sixth studio album, Night & Day on Tuesday, August 17th on Triple Crown Records. With less than a week to go, you can stream the full album on MySpace now: www.myspace.com/thesecrethandshake and also chat with Luis LIVE on Monday, August 16th at 8pm EST here: http://www.ustream.tv/thesecrethandshake
For his latest full-length, Night & Day, Dubuc’s influences are wide ranging, including The Temptations, Jackson 5, plus Motown-inspired hitmakers like Blood, Sweat and Tears and Tower of Power.
Recorded to tape on an original Ampex Tape Machine, Dubuc and producer Noah Shain used a three-track recorder that was popular until the mid-1960s which many famous pop recordings – including many of Phil Spector’s “Wall of Sound” productions and early Motown hits – were taped on. It’s live strings, live horns, live percussion and group background singers. Live drums, bass, guitar and piano all played in the same little room at Walden Sound in LA where the album was recorded over the course of 5 weeks. No programming, no digital editing.
“I wanted to take a risk on this record, Dubuc continues. I feel like it has the potential to really move people to make people feel good about their situations in their lives. It’s a soul record. If there’s ever an all-encompassing Motown revival record, this is it.”
