Watch Us, Today Recording “Long Since Forgotten”

In the beginning of November, we brought you one of our most highly anticipated releases of the year – a split between jazz-rockers Lovely Socialite and Us, Today.  You can stream that split here, or purchase the (very limited run) tape here.  Today, we’re happy to share with you the above video, which shows Us, Today recording “Long Since Forgotten,” which appears on their side of the split.

The recording session, which serves as the band’s official music video, was produced by Dominic Marino with editing by Mac Clenney.  Us, Today was filmed and recorded at Grayscale Cincinnati.

As an added bonus, you can watch the band performing the second piece on their side of the split “Violent Proclivity” in a separate session here.  And here’s a video of Lovely Socialite performing their elementary hit, Brachiosaurus Boogie (For Kids)….

Snag the split tape here.

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.

OUT NOW: Us, Today // Lovely Socialite Split Tape

Us, Today / Lovely Socialite

Buy This:

Digital (Bandcamp) – $5 Minimum
Cassette Tape + Download – $6

 

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.

Purchase of this cassette split includes download of two exclusive remixes of the split by Nude Human (Pat Reinholz of Lovely Socialite & John Praw of Pushmi-Pullyu).

Announcing Lost City Music Festival 2013: August 8th-11th

Lost City Music Festival 2013

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.

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.
