It’s time for another entry into our Lost City Winter Series! Things have been pretty cold and snowy, so take the night off at the Dragonfly Lounge with us! Tonight we’ve got four excellent acts – don’t miss it!
UPDATE: Brontosaurus has, unfortunately, had to cancel due to van problems. But the show must go on!
Tomorrow night (or today, depending on when you read this), we’ll be proudly hosting the second evening in our Lost City Winter Series. This time, we’ve got a night of electronics and experimentation. Read on below for a preview of the sounds to come, and check out the facebook event here for more information.
“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.
For those of you who haven’t already checked out Ben Schapiro’s excellent album “617-797-5411” (stream it above or click below for more info), we’ve got another great reason to check it out. This incredibly intimate album has recently been updated to include Part II, which adds five new songs recorded this summer since the original release of the album. The album also updates a few earlier recordings. Physical copies coming soon.
“617-797-5411” is an intimate glimpse into the soul and psyche of Ben Schapiro, one of Madison’s best-loved underground musicians. Before leaving Madison for parts unknown, Ben was a staple of Madison’s house show scene, often as part of the band Dirty Jive. The album shows Ben’s skill and craftsmanship on the acoustic guitar without ever abandoning the delicacy and honesty of his poetry.
Madison’s indie rock mainstay, Tom Teslik, presents this 4-track EP. Released at a show at the Dragonfly Lounge on December 3rd, 2011, it’s now available for purchase on Mine All Mine Records. This EP consists of two originals and two covers.
After roughly five years and eighty-plus artists (almost all available for free today), Mine All Mine Records is exceedingly proud to set free our 200th release. This set of 28 tracks features many faces from our past as well as artists new to the label, and every track (at the time of release) is new and unreleased elsewhere. Enjoy nearly two hours of new music spanning the entirety of what Mine All Mine Records has to offer.
Sales and donations from this compilation all go toward updating the Mine All Mine Records website in order to offer sorting, recommendations and more. All free options remain available.
