Late Addition :: Sharing The ‘Phenomenal’ Scuare Album I Overlooked

Apparently, I completely missed the boat on an album that the homie Scuare released about six months ago.  Here’s the skinny on the project, straight from Exociety

Scuare is a Brazilian-American bedroom rapper/beat maker based in Austin Texas.  His intricate flows and melodic tendencies have earned him a small but dedicated following as a member of the duo …&more… and internet rap collective Exociety.  In the years since Alphabet Soup, his first solo release, Scuare has steadily evolved a style that is unique to himself.

Phenomonal, almost entirely self-produced, recorded, mixed and mastered, is Scuare’s first solo LP since 2013.  Loosely playing off themes of the phenomenal and noumenal world, he illustrates the shift in his thought process; from obsessing over internal analysis towards considerations beyond his own frame of reference, to the world of motivations and perspectives that exists outside his own limited understanding, with the hopes of leading a more empathetic and positive lifestyle.  Joined by frequent collaborators no1mportant and Rav, as well as instrumental additions from FLOOG, BlkPwRngr, and Sow, this project marks a new chapter in Scuare’s discography.”

The work is definitely dope, so do the main things : stream the album, download the album and share it around.  Because the beautiful people at Exociety care about us as consumers, the album is a name your price download, so if you’ve got a few bucks to spare, make it happen!

Triplicate Form :: Rav X Kill Bill X Scuare Present ‘SKIN’

a3693049898_10

The way that the internet has made our massive world figuratively ‘smaller’ has allowed for collaborative possibilities that, even a generation ago, could not have existed.  The story of the EXOCIETY collective perfectly illustrates this, as the ultra-talented Austin-based MC known as Scuare has shown us.  About a decade ago, he connected with non-Texans Rav and Kill Bill over the website Newgrounds, and a bond was formed that has lasted despite proximity and time.  With each member growing and the world changing drastically since their inception, it makes sense that SKIN would reflect this range of change, despite it’s semi-short runtime.  Each member provides production, along with fellow collaborator Gold Midas, on the project, which takes a deep dive into the realms of creativity and sonic exploration.  I could throw a bunch of adjectives around, but this one deserves a direct listen, as it is quite gripping.  Check it out on Bandcamp or your favorite streaming service, and spread it around for others to do the same.
