Save Our Studio!

A battle cry, and these warriors stepped forward. Like so many studios The Compound has been digging deep into debt for a few years now and we had considered closing the doors for good. Until word got around and we brainstormed the idea of creating a compilation record to raise funds and raise awareness. The response has been overwhelming, leaving us truly humbled.

The outpouring of love and generosity has been like a wave of sonic rain drenching us with a new faith in our community and ourselves. Our thanks to everyone involved in taking this project from seed to structure (a pdf booklet is included with download for credit-where-credit-is-due).

We are offering part 1 of this double-disc-full of tracks at a minimum price of $3.99. As this is a benefit record you are welcome to donate more if you are able, every little bit helps.

Live Out Loud,


released July 4, 2012

Track Name: CPO and The Saps - Firecracker
"I wrote this song about a fictitious character named "Firecracker." She is loosely based on a middle-aged redhead woman I met at the Auld Dubliner in downtown Long Beach. Anthony fortunately approached Molly and I one night when we were playing an acoustic set at 4th street Vine in Long Beach with a few other outstanding artists. He liked the song so after the show we went over to the Compound and laid it down.
Special thanks to Trader Joe's for the Powerberries which kept us going and pelvic air thrusting until 4am!"
Track Name: Matt Death and The New Intellectuals - Peace Might Come
"I work at the Compound Studio several times a year, and I own my own studio. I can't think of a better endorsement than that. It's my go to when I need to get into a nice big space with some good vibe.
Anthony has always been a solid engineer and producer, and the place is filled with all of his funky vibe drums, shakers, amps and guitars. You can always find the right tool for the job. I think a few of my pieces of gear have crept out of my space and ended up living there."
