Human Reunion's new album has been a 3 year work-in-progress, but the end result, an album called Arc de Square was well worth the wait.  The band visited the WYSO studios for a live performance and discussed translating their raw live energy into a recording, especially when they usually weren't in the same room during the recording process.
