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 3 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: Avi Buffalo - The New Old One
"This song is one of the group's oldest. At the time of creation, it was called 'The New One' until it had been too long to call it that and it became 'The New OLD One'. I never knew what to do with it and never attempted recording it so when Anthony asked if there was a song we could do for his compilation, it seemed like a great opportunity to put it to good use." – Avi Buffalo
Track Name: Dumb Love - Breaks You
"We had a great experience recording at The Compound. We did the track live and took several stabs at it. Then sat back and listened and went with the best one. This song was fun cause not all songs can be done this easy or with that same approach. The track it self is about the feeling that someone gets right before bursting into tears or screaming your head off at something. It's that second in your life where we somehow decide how to react to something traumatic or something that could be a life changing event. It's a great photo to capture. I tried to capture it through words."
