Buzz: Given Willingly on Critical Masses

Giving Willingly has been a long-time standard here at Mine All Mine Records, so we’re super stoked to see this excellent review of “Confined, Yet We Grow.”  Read the terrifically in-depth review here, on Critical Masses.

While you’re at it, download the album for free here.  Given Willingly also curated our latest compilation – a wide-ranging Mine All Mine Records retrospective – which you can download here.


New Release: Mine All Mine Records IV

This week, we are proud to present the rebirth of our Rainy Day Mixtape series with Mine All Mine Records IV, curated by Andreas Niegl of Given Willingly.  One of our most loyal and long-term artists walks you through twelve of his favorite tracks, including one that has never been released in lossless (and is otherwise retired), as well as the premier track from the Given Willingly / Beatoven collaborative project, Lornbawn.


Buzz: Mine All Mine Records Sits Down With Madison’s Isthmus

Last week, Corey and I had the pleasure of sitting down with freelance writer Jessica Steinhoff.  The result is this wonderful write-up in Madison’s own Isthmus.  Copies of the (free) paper hit newsstands on Thursday, and you can now read it at the Isthmus’ website, the Daily Page.

There are also plugs for some of our artists – Given Willingly, Electric Sea Spider, Wild Dogs In Winter.

Check it out here.  We’re extremely grateful for this superbly flattering piece, and we’d love to hear what you think.

New Release: Given Willingly’s “Confined, Yet We Grow”

Given Willingly is a long-time mam!records member and supporter.  Today, we are proud to bring you his brand new full-length album.  Given Willingly creates music that somehow combines the worlds of audio collage art with vocals that often feel strongly rooted in punk ethics.  Check it out!


New Releases: 6 July 2010

Is it Tuesday already?  Well, you know what that means!  New free music from mam!records.

Our first release today is Sam Thomas‘ amazing “Continuous Soundtrack.”  Designed to score a large number of potential films, it covers a wide range of genres – much like his band’s recent EP here – AND this piece is available for free use in your film projects with proper credit.

The second release today is the first full-length collaborative effort from Dad School and Given Willingly.  These guys are long-time mam!records family members, and with this release you get something specific to their combined styles.  Sometimes ambient, sometimes noisy, sometimes shoegazey – you get the picture.

You can stream, download and comment on today’s new releases by clicking the album cover below.  I’m sure the artists would love to hear what you think!

New Releases: 30 June 2010

Today, mam!records is happy to bring to you two great new releases from electronic artist evolv.  The first the originally self-released Thoughtless Thoughts EP, which features evolv’s minimalist ambient and electronic sounds tinged with post-rock style.  The second is the mam!records-exclusive remix album, Thoughtless Thoughts Remixed, which features fifteen tracks by various artists, tearing apart and re-arranging evolv’s original EP.
