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.

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).

UPDATE: Lovely Socialite Returns, and More!

Lovely Socialite July 2013 Shows

Poster by Joe Ludwig.

After nearly a year of inactivity, one of my all-time favorite Madison bands is back in action!  Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps is the only band in the area that tackles jazz-rock the way they do.  After parting ways for a while due to school and work, Lovely Socialite has announced that they are convening once again to record new material and play a handful of one-off shows.

Last year’s successful Kickstarter helped the band release Registers Her Delight, Lovely Socialite’s first full-length album.  But anyone who saw the band in the time between that album’s release and their hiatus will know that there were plenty of tunes left undocumented.

I’m always down for forward-thinking music, and I’m happy to say Lovely Socialite will be doing exactly that with their new, as-of-yet-untitled EP.  In addition to this EP, Lovely Socialite will be recording a new (also as-of-yet-untitled) split cassette with the similarly-awesome Cincinnati band Us, Today.

Catch Lovely Socialite in their special return shows July 4th at the Frequency in Madison, and July 5th at the Yield Bar in Milwaukee, and stay tuned for more information on the band’s upcoming releases.

In the mean time, you can snag a copy of Registers Her Delight in our shop or the band’s shop on Murfie.com.  You can also get a copy of Lovely Socialite’s Debutante EP here.
