BUZZ: Pushmi-Pullyu on Mixtapes|Heartbreaks

Mixtapes|Heartbreaks

As you may know, Pushmi-Pullyu has been working on new album – for a very long time.  Word is, that album is nearing completion.  (FINALLY!)

In related news, the Mixtapes|Heartbreaks blog recently featured Pushmi-Pullyu’s “In the Bleak Midwinter” in their March MP3 Roundup.  “In the Bleak Midwinter” was originally arranged for a performance a few years back on WYOU’s Just Say Ho! Telethon, which required local bands to play at least one holiday tune.  Pushmi-Pullyu chose an old Christmastime hymn, turning it into a sort-of love song.  (We then released it as mam233.)

Check out “In the Bleak Midwinter,” as well as Mixtapes|Heartbreaks’s other March picks here.  For updates on the album, follow the band on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Pushmi-Pullyu Releases New Single

Pushmi-Pullyu - In The Bleak Midwinter

“In The Bleak Midwinter” is a new single from Pushmi-Pullyu’s first full-band album, Never Love A Stranger. Originally arranged for a live performance on WYOU, “In The Bleak Midwinter” is the band’s take on a classic carol with words by the English poet Christina Rossetti (circa 1872).

Never Love A Stranger documents Pushmi-Pullyu’s shift from electronic ambient pop to completely instrumented textural rock.

Recorded at House Arrest studios in Madison, WI by Brian Nolan (of American Hi-Fi). Cover photo by Nikki Gibson. Cover design by John Praw.

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).

New Release: bell monks – let the waves carry us

BUY THIS: Double CD – $10
BUY THIS: Digital – $5 Minimum

Following a successful Kickstarter Campaign, “let the waves carry us” is the culmination of bell monks’ 2011 year-long recording project, for which the band wrote, recorded and released a 2-track package each month. At the end of the year, friends and musicians were invited to remix some of their favorite pieces from the monthly packages. The finished album includes 9 of the original 24 songs, with some re-recorded with additional material, and is being released along with 12 remixes, most of which are dramatic re-imaginations of the original tune.
