MP3 Sound Samples:
Rookie of the Year:
Song: Wild & Free (That's The Way It Goes)
Album: The Goodnight Moon: Part II
Release Date: August '13
A very radio-friendly, but still rock-conscious pop song written for Rookie, by Steve at The Square. Bright, organic, and catchy.
Ice Nine Kills:
Song: Connect The Cuts
Album: The Predator Becomes The Prey
Release Date: January '14
An interesting, heavy, and incredibly technical record. This is likely one of the Square's most crushing mixes to date.
Album: Cocktails in Purgatory
Release Date: April '14
Indie-rock fueled by philosophy, whiskey, and too many wounded birds, this project was an experiment in digestible distortion and accessible minimalism.
The Venetia Fair:
Song: Only In The Morning
Album: Every Sick, Disgusting Thought...
Release Date: March '13
One of the weirdest and most talented groups to ever pass through the Square. We shot for something polished, but that would make the listener feel dirty for tuning into it.
Still Rings True:
Release Date: June '13
One of the realest, most aggressive punk bands ever to enter The Square. This three-piece makes so much sound, it just can't be contained.
Song: The Devil Is In The Dinero
Release Date: Dec '12
A song from some wild sessions spanning almost three years. This song is one of the crazier ones, featuring tuba, 2x4's as percussion, and many other musical oddities.
I'm Happiest When:
Album: Sleepy Feet
Release Date: June '12
An unbelievably talented, primarily acoustic group doing compelling and atmospheric music led by some of the most convincing vocals ever tracked at The Square.
Album: Split w/ A Loss For Words
Release Date: November '11
Super raw, raise-your-fist-in-the-air punk rock. Scoreboard is reminiscent of the old punk records many of us grew up on.
Song: Can't Hear A Sound
Release Date: March '11
The goal for this Chicago-based band's interesting brand of female-fonted rock n' roll was a larger than life mix that still retained the group's unique dynamics.
Song: Have Some
Album: Say Yes
Release Date: March '11
As the final track on a surprisingly varied indie rock album, 'Have Some' features a number of surprises itself, all tied together with layers of unique and impactful textures.
