DOWNLOAD: Nude Human – Is Is Is Not Is Not

Nude Human - Is Is Is Not Is Not

Nude Human is the collaborative ambient duo of Madison resident John Praw (of Pushmi-Pullyu, Dressed Up, etc) and Milwaukee dweller Pat Reinholz (of Weather Duo, Lovely Socialite, Lady Cannon, etc). Founded in mid-2012, Nude Human is an equal partnership that sees Praw and Reinholz bringing together ideas and techniques from vastly differing backgrounds to create lush, shifting compositions.

Is Is Is Not Is Not is the duo’s third major composition, and the second to be released in live session format (following the release of 2012’s live Lost City Music Festival set earlier this year). Alternately titled Zanarkand, Is Is Is Not Is Not was recorded live at the Frequency (121 W. Main Street, Madison, WI) on November 17th, 2013. It is now released for free download on John Praw’s birthday.

Mine All Mine and GrimmusiK present COLIAS 1, the first in a new series of ambient releases that started with a simple prompt: “What does ambient music mean to you? The result is a compilation of heard and unheard material from the minds of Madison’s most prolific experimenters (with regional and national guests).

COLIAS 1 features new music from John Praw, Brain Grimmer, Silas “Be” Ritchie (featuring Brian Tairaku Ritchie), Troy Schafer, DB Pedersen, Wayfaraway (Karsten Osterby of Sleepy Lesbos), Kathleen Baird (of Spires That in the Sunset Rise), Gregory Taylor, Ben Willis and more.

Of particular interest is the number of musicians releasing their first ambient compositions on the compilation. COLIAS 1 features tracks from new comers like Corey Murphy (of Pushmi-Pullyu and Lovely Socialite), William Z. Villain, Asumaya, and others. Also included are ambient pieces by hip-hop producer *hitmayng and experimental pop musician eskimeaux.

The compilation is being produced as a collaboration between Mine All Mine Records and GrimmusiK, and will be released as a limited edition two disc physical release. Packaging design and album art is being provided by John Praw of Mine All Mine with help from Brian Grimm of GrimmusiK (see album art below).

The release party will feature Madison locals Nude Human (John Praw + Pat Reinholz), Brothers Grimm with DB Pedersen, and special guests CJ Boyd (represented on the compilation as part of Kurva Choir) and long-time Mine All Mine collaborator eskimeaux. The show will be held at Bright Red Studios on 9 Ingersoll Street, Madison, WI.

Stars & Letters: Year One

Stars & Letters

On February 1st of this year, our very good friend, Mark Roberts (of We Are Temporary // The Enright House) started up his own label.  Stars & Letters is a “small Brooklyn record label, dedicated to releasing great music by emerging artists.”  And it’s good – really good.  Mark and his tight roster of artists put out chill, dreamy electronics with pop/wave influences.

To celebrate the end of their first year (well, almost a year), Stars & Letters are offering their current catalog of releases completely FREE until the end of the year.  To stream or download these great releases, visit their bandcamp page here.

Check out these awesome release for free while you can.  I’ll also embed them below for your convenience.

Catch Madison Composer Brain Grimmer Live for the First Time

$5, 21+ | 8:30 PM
Monday, November 19th [Event]
The Frequency | 121 W. Main St.

Things may have been quiet over here at Mine All Mine, but trust me, we’ve been working on stuff.  One of our key focus areas in the last several months has been promoting local music here in Madison, Wisconsin.  Last summer, we hosted the first ever Lost City Music Festival, and since then, we’ve been stoked to see the community continue to grow, including new-found support from the mayor of Madison (but more on that later).

For now, we’d like to point your attention toward an exciting upcoming show at the Frequency on Monday, November 19th.  For the first time, Madison composer Brian Grimm (of Lovely Socialite, Brothers Grimm, Watercourse Quartet) will be performing his electronic beat-based pieces under the Brain Grimmer monicker.  With this project, he’ll be presenting an absolutely unique combination of cello, guzheng (an ancient Chinese plucked zither), and APC.  Brian Grimm is a prolific composer and electronic musician.

Joining him will be Thollem Electric: Tsigoti+, “an anarcho blues lullaby noise free jazz circus punk show of solo renditions of Tsigoti songs plus more.”  Thollem has been traveling perpetually throughout North America and Europe the past six years, collaborating with artists such as Mike Watt (Minutemen/The Stooges), Nels Cline (Wilco), John Dieterich/Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Jad Fair (Half-Japanese) and Arrington de Dionyso (Old Time Relijun).
