Chicago may be a city oft forgotten in the landscape of burgeoning arts and music scenes, but that doesn't mean that there isn't a healthy dose of new and great music coming from there. A recent development in the windy city occurred when recording engineer Dave Vettraino decided to make a label out of the recordings he was doing in the basement of his Logan Square house. The result is a project wherein once a month Vettraino will release two tracks from artists on the Public House Sound Recordings imprint that are accompanied by a piece of artwork selected and curated by the band. Ostensibly the project is a 7-inch or cassette label without the 7-inches or cassettes.
The first two bands that The Public House have recorded are Landmarks and Redbird, and you can stream a sumptuous, arresting track from Landmarks below. The label eventually hopes to move into physical distribution, but for the timebeing, keep an eye out once a month when two new tracks from new bands will be shared.
