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.

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.
