Mine All Mine Records is proud to announce the second annual Lost City Music Festival in Madison, Wisconsin. The festival will be held from August 8th to 11th with shows at the High Noon Saloon, the Dragonfly Lounge and Bright Red Studios (+ one announced secret venue).
After the success of last year’s festival, the crew behind the Lost City Music Festival decided to aim for focus with the second iteration. This year, the Lost City crew has put a heavier emphasis on local acts and tightly paired billings. The Lost City Music Festival 2013 will be an even better experience than before.
The Lost City Music Festival was founded in part to fill a cultural gap the crew perceived. That is, a low-cost music event featuring a range of styles and a focus on local and regional artists. The crew has continued to listen to the community’s concerns and needs in regards to last year’s music festival and the scene(s) as a whole.
In keeping with that tradition, all performers at the Lost City Music Festival 2013 will be fairly compensated for their contributions. A portion of all sales will continue to benefit local music charities, and artists will be given the option to donate to these charities at their own discretion.
Partial lineup (in alphabetical order):
Building on Buildings
Filter Free Radio
Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps
Myles Coyne & the Rusty Nickel Band
The North American Council for a Moonless Tomorrow
Tom Teslik & the Night Owls

mam241 – Softly, Dear – Portico

Not too long ago, we announced the new signing of Eau Claire band Softly, Dear.

Mine All Mine Records will be re-releasing the EP (plus bonus material) on limited-edition cassette tape and download with a release show August 8th at the High Noon Saloon (details TBA). Portico has been described as bouncing “back and forth between its borderline melancholy lyrical content and sunny, laid back grooves” and “the perfect soundtrack for a summer season just beginning” (Leader-Telegram, June 19th).

All songs arranged by Pushmi-Pullyu. Lyrics on Bleak Midwinter by Christina Rosesetti, sometime before 1872. Lyrics on Past by John Galsworthy, sometime before 1933. Howl III written by Cassidy J. David-Weber, sometime before 2010. All other lyrics by John Praw.
Pushmi-Pullyu founding member John Praw recently sat down with Kayla to discuss music marketing strategies, online streaming music, and – most importantly – their upcoming album Never Love A Stranger. After a successful week streaming via a Madison Arts Extract album preview, Never Love A Stranger is due for release next week.
As a special treat, the album is available a week early, exclusively via Murfie.com. Once you’ve purchased your copy on Murfie, you can stream, download or request the physical disc.
