DOWNLOAD: Nude Human – Is Is Is Not Is Not

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.

The Dragonfly Lounge (So Far)

As you may know, we’ve recently begun working closely with Madison’s newest venue, the Dragonfly Lounge.  Located below the beautiful Bellini Italian Restaurant (401 E. Washington), Dragonfly has been a small space for private events since Bellini was converted from a church (built in 1897) into one of Madison’s finest Italian restaurants.  Now, the space serves as an intimate venue, and Mine All Mine has partnered with Dragonfly to fill the space.  So far, our winter series has shown that Madison is more than ready to support a new venue with friendly faces.

Read on below for videos and photos from our launch party (Pioneer, Pushmi-Pullyu, Ugly Brothers and Lovely Socialite), as well as live audio featured on WORT 89.9FM (Cap Alan, Golden Donna and Lovely Socialite).  At the end, grab some info on booking with Mine All Mine at the Dragonfly Lounge, as well as our upcoming shows (see the sidebar to the right).
