Brooklyn based artist Gaby Alter is preparing to release his debut EP as Yes Gabriel. While Atler played most of the instruments himself, the album also features the guitar work of Sean McArdle and Alec Berlin (from Broadway's "American Idiot"). Alter has also written compositions for theater, television and movies. His new five song release begins with the acoustic, folk appeal of "Dear To Me," as his vocals are warm and inviting. Next, he moves into more pop oriented territory with the beats of "Rains In April," before slowing back down for the gentle flow of "You Got Through." He wraps up his new short release with the slow-build up of "Deep In February," which seems to belong in an upcoming Broadway show.

From Louisiana comes the latest full-length release from The Rayo Brothers (Daniel & Jesse Reaux). Their new album titled "Victim & Villain" features ten tracks rooted in classic country and folk music. They begin with the gentle acoustic strumming of "Colorado," as you begin to warm up to their sound. The Rayo Brothers find the perfect balance of tempo and vocal harmonies on the Americana swing of "Darkroom," before slowing down once again for the emotion-fueled title song "Victim & Villain." Their music comes alive once more with a shot of energy in the form of "The Dream" and "Goodbye Jane," before wrapping up their new album with the quiet acoustics of "The House I Hate."
