This month, Myles Coyne is on the road with his buddies. Bouncing around the country in their purple van – dubbed the “BREADMOBILE” – Myles is bringing us his Mouse Diaries. Here, we present part three of his unfiltered thoughts as Mr. Mouse travels out east and back. Read on below for the .

The Frequency // $5 // 21+
If you’ve been following our blog lately, Mine All Mine has been home to Myles Coyne’s tour journal (see also: The Mouse Diaries Part 1 & Part 2). After traveling out East and back, Myles & co. are playing their Wisconsin homecoming show tonight at the Frequency in Madison.
Sharing the stage with them will be three local Madison groups: Nude Human (the ambient duo of Pat Reinholz and John Praw), folk soloist Jamie Yanda, and the seven-piece blues/folk rock ensemble Hewn. Join us at the Frequency as we welcome Myles & co. home!
For samples of each of these acts, check out their pages above, or visit the link below.
Mine All Mine is excited to bring together two of our absolute favorite jazz rock outfits for this exclusive cassette split (+ digital download).
Us, Today (CINCINNATI) and Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps (MADISON) both create original tunes that are equally experimental and accessible at the same time, something few acts can successfully pull off. This is no surprise, however, knowing the bands’ considerable combined years of music education. The bottom line is that both groups know what they are doing, and they do it well.
Us, Today (guitar, drums, vibes) start out with Long Since Forgotten, a tune that starts out rather laid back, but grows steadily with determined bursts over its 6-minute duration. What follows is Violent Proclivity, which features subtle, subdued vibes and guitar that really highlight some intense drum work.
Lovely Socialite (bass, trombone, cellos, pipa, vibes, drums, flute) fill their side with the 11+ minute track All Things At Once. Recorded during tracking of the band’s upcoming sophomore album, All Things At Once is a free improvisation that sees the band taking off with out-there rock grooves.

The Dragonfly Lounge // $5 Cover // 21+
Mine All Mine is keeping busy in the month of November. We have some exciting releases coming up, including the long-awaited split cassette between Us, Today and Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps. On top of that, we have a string of shows featuring some of our favorite Wisconsin artists.
To kick the month off, we’ve got Milwaukee natives Midwest Death Rattle and Myles Coyne visiting the Dragonfly Lounge. From Madison, we’ve got Londres Grand and Lion’s Mouth (some new favorites of ours). The night will be a solid mix of folk and rock, so come on down to support our touring friends!

I can’t believe it! This little project I started to play a random show has now been around for half a decade. Pushmi-Pullyu is now five years old. It started with me, a midi controller, and a basement full of drunk college kids. That night, Corey Murphy joined me for a keyboard solo, and he soon became my right-hand man. After being a duo for quite some time, Myles Coyne joined us for a bit. Since then, others have come and gone, each imparting some part of their personality. Together, through all the permutations, Pushmi-Pullyu has played SIXTY shows! Not bad for never touring.
The last year and a half has been completely taken up with Never Love A Stranger, the first proper full-length release of our material. There have been other releases, of course – a mostly-solo collection of rough cuts to hold people over while I lived in Norway; a split with Mark Roberts (aka The Enright House, now known as We Are Temporary); a few singles and compilation appearances. Now, we’re get ready to move forward with the band and our new lineup: Corey Murphy, Luke Annear, Sam Ludwig, Jamie Yanda and me, John Praw Kruse.
According to the National Network for Child Care,
“Five-year-olds are cheerful, energetic, and enthusiastic. They enjoy planning, and spend a great deal of time discussing who will do what. They especially enjoy dramatic play, usually with other children. Five-year-olds are more sensitive to the needs and feelings of others around them. It is less difficult for them to wait for a turn or to share toys and material.”
Going by that description, it’s time for us to share our toys and material. For the next week, Never Love A Stranger is completely free! We hope you enjoy it, and we hope you stick around for the next five years. On a personal note, I want to thank everyone who has ever supported the band by buying merch, coming to a show, or leaving a nice comment. It means a lot!
