Mark began writing Squareless by Light Silver Automatic shortly after the release of LSA's last album, Reeelsounds, and over the several following years. Many of the songs were fleshed out in a live jamming environment among Mark, his brother Michael, and his longtime friends, Rudy and Jeremy, who were the guitarist and drummer, respectively, and bandmates with Mark in Spread, which originated in Charleston, Illinois (Go EIU Panthers!) and grew into a moderately successful (but damn fun!) gigging band in and around Chicago (we miss you, Double Door) before full-time jobs, wives, and families rightfully became the focus.

As the songs began to take shape, Mark began recording sessions at Full Bright Life, a recording studio in Wheaton, Illinois. Another former Spread bandmate and bass player, Matt Fleshman, later graced several recording sessions with his good nature and great playing. And as the project grew and continued, numerous other friends, colleagues and family, including Mark’s children and father-in-law (all credited above) gave of their time and talents to make these songs fully blossom. Thank you all.

The album Squareless, and the idea of living your life and loving as best you can through seemingly shapeless paths, builds from the "Determined sonic goodness adventuring through humanity while speeding toward death" that was Reelsounds. As part of that construction - "building fossils we will leave behind” - Squareless carves out new aural spaces among pop, rock and raw acoustic landscapes and the observations of an aging man, father of two, and husband of one. Imperfection is reality yet effort and goodness must be as well. Failing is inevitable yet how we react - our attitude - is a choice. Writing and recording music while spending time with friends and colleagues and masters of audio craft is a great fortune. LSA does its best to capture all of this in these tracks. Considerable volume is highly recommended. Headphones and earbuds need love, too. Happy listening.
