The Northern Key Record Release Show November 3rd 2011

Northern Key Release Show

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

The Northern Key Out Today!

[wpsc_products product_id=’26’]

The Northern Key (self titled) LP is out today and availabe on iTunes, Amazon and through the Tricycle Records store. Singer / songwriter Andrew Galluccio is hardly a new member of Tricycle Records; as the bass player for The Red Verse, he has been part of the Tricycle family for years. We are excited to now release this collection of his songs, reminiscent of Mark Kozelek and Elliott Smith that truly capture the spirit of indie folk.

As The Northern Key, Andrew Galluccio unlocks a familiar world of folk music for the next generation of listeners. Galluccio’s gentle guitar and haunting harmonies melt pretension with pure expression; his tender voice thawing even the coolest cynic. This world is our companion, our comfort, and the perfect complement to any reality.

‘The Northern Key’ came alive at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco with Chris Chu (The Morning Benders) recording and mixing, and local musician Jen Grady contributing vocals and cello — in just 24 hours. Such spontaneity allowed years of dreaming to crystallize into a well-crafted — but not overworked — work of art.
