Wedding Dress

Wedding Dress

Made up of various members of Maps & Atlases, Suns, Joan of Arc and Gypsy Blood, Wedding Dress are about as Chicago as it gets. Dreamt up as side-project/outlet for Maps & Atlases guitar player Erin Elders, songs were written between tours and slowly released during his “math-pop” band’s fleeting downtime. Wedding Dress is a distinctly other affair — it’s more layered, plaintive and measured than anything in Elders’ previous catalog. The songs are textured narratives. The instrumentation is restrained and, in many ways, the project stands as a perfect counter-point to the sometimes spastic Maps. That’s not to say its a dull affair. The songs are beautiful in their sparseness, the palate is selectively lush, and the rotating set of players — both recorded and live — patiently flesh out Elders’ haunting vocals and evocative lyrics.

Double Ewes

Double Ewes

Double Ewes is an electronic indie folk band founded in 2010 by singer-songwriter Whilden Hughes VI in Janesville, Wisconsin. The band also includes members Jeremy Nealis and Max Jewer. Hughes started recording ideas on cassettes while living in a house near to his family farm on the outskirts of Janesville. With the addition of Nealis and Jewer the trio were able to use pieces of the early tape recordings to compose songs for the debut self-titled release ‘Double Ewes’. The songs are backed by an electronic drum kit and sampling machine which when combined with other instruments create a dense texture comprised of many layers.

Preorder: Animals In Human Attire – Ourmegadawn (CD/Tape/Digital: 4-11-14)

Ourmegadawn

Preorder (out April 11th, 2014):

CD – $10
Digital $8
Cassette – $6

Murfie CD + Digital – $10

The arrival of Ourmegadawn has been a long time coming. Despite frequent appearances in Riverwest and the general Milwaukee area, Ourmegadawn is the first proper album since Animals In Human Attire’s 2011 self-titled outing.

Members of the band spread their talents amongst various local acts (including Temple, Myles Coyne & the Rusty Nickel Band, The Zelda Routine, and others), but this specific arrangement of BREADKING frequenters drives a particular sound with vocals by Jack Tell steering the ensemble.

Beyond all else, Ourmegadawn is fun. It’s eight tracks of head-bobbing, folk-informed indie rock, and like all things BREADKING, Animals In Human Attire takes a punk approach to the whole album.

TONIGHT: Softly, Dear w/ William Z. Villain, Twin Window, Marai Binagi @ the Frequency

Softly Dear Drinks Drinks

Thursday, December 12th @ 9:00PM
The Frequency // $5 // 18+

Softly, Dear (EAU CLAIRE)
William Z. Villain (MADISON)
Twin Window (MADISON)
Marai Binagi (MADISON)


Tonight is an exciting show for us.  For the first time, we’re bringing together Eau Claire’s Softly, Dear and Madison’s own William Z. Villain.  Both acts had debut releases on Mine All Mine this past year, and it’s great to have them under the same roof.

William Z. Villain first visited us in early July with their self-titled EP featuring “skilled / clinically insane rock” recorded in Bill Villain’s den.  You can stream or download that release here.  Bill Villain also made his first ambient effort on the COLIAS 1 double CD release.

One month later saw the debut release of Softly, Dear’s Portico EP.  Originally out on self-released CD-r, we put out the limited run tape, including a bonus Phobos remix of one of our personal favorites, Melange.  You can stream or download Portico here, or snag one of the limited remaining copies of the cassette here.

Rounding out the night are two other Madison acts – Twin Window and Marai Binagi.  You can catch two Twin Window tunes on their SoundCloud.  As for Marai Binagi, you’ll have to be surprised!

SHOW PREVIEW: Asumaya, Paperhaus, Lion’s Mouth

Paperhaus

Monday, September 30th @ 9:00PM
The Dragonfly Lounge // $5 Cover // 21+

Paperhaus (WASHINGTON, DC)
Asumaya (MADISON)
Lion’s Mouth (MADISON)


Paperhaus is a psychedelic alt-blues band from Washington, DC. “Lo Hi Lo” (embedded above) was recorded at DC’s legendary Inner Ear Studios with producer Ivan Basuri, and reflects the more pop side of Paperhaus’ psychedelic music. A full length LP of more blues and funk influenced psychedelic music is in the works and will be released in 2014.  [excerpt from band press]

 

Madison’s own Asumaya creates percussive loop-based tunes that draw equally from international and math rock music.  His time in Africa is always present, never going so far as to become a gimmick.  Asumaya’s Luke Bassuener also lends his rhythmic talents to the band CONTROL.

Last, but not least, is alt/indie-pop act Lion’s Mouth.  This Madison two-piece is made up of Sara W. and Chelsea Z.  While I’ve yet to see them live, you can listen to them via their ReverbNation link above.  The band describes themselves as having “the sensibilities of pop, the relentless energy of punk, and the heart and soul of folk.”

OUT TONIGHT: The Fatty Acids’ third full-length album, Boléro.

Digital (Bandcamp)
Limited Edition Cassette Tape – Available 9/7: Cassette Store Day


Just in time for the first ever Cassette Store Day, Mine All Mine is happy to present the limited edition tape release of the third full-length album by The Fatty Acids. Boléro is an insane – both in concept and content. On Boléro, The Fatty Acids are half a dozen grown boys making incredibly powerful and inventive pop rock tunes.

Side A starts with the album’s most driving song, Girls and Gods, with clapping and wailing voices that soon give way to an almost ballad-like state, only to morph once again in a bouncy irreverence. Perhaps most interesting are The Fatty Acids’ choices when it comes to melody and harmony – they are legitimately unpredictable yet perfectly understandable.

If you’re interested, grab your copy now! Mine All Mine has very limited quantities of the cassette release. For digital and other physical formats, consult The Fatty Acids directly, who are self-releasing this excellent album with a release show at The Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, WI with Faux Fir and Sat. Nite Duets.

All songs written, recorded and mixed by The Fatty Acids in 2011-13, Mostly in Milwaukee, WI. Mastered by Emily Lazar at The Lodge NYC, assisted by Rich Morales. All songs copyright The Fatty Acids.
