INTERVIEW: John Praw of Pushmi-Pullyu on the Murfie Podcast

Pushmi-Pullyu Interview

Pushmi-Pullyu @ Memorial Union Terrace, 2012.

Pushmi-Pullyu founding member John Praw recently sat down with Kayla to discuss music marketing strategies, online streaming music, and – most importantly – their upcoming album Never Love A Stranger.  After a successful week streaming via a Madison Arts Extract album preview, Never Love A Stranger is due for release next week.

As a special treat, the album is available a week early, exclusively via Murfie.com.  Once you’ve purchased your copy on Murfie, you can stream, download or request the physical disc.  Murfie has given a number of Mine All Mine artists coverage on their blog, and they were the primary sponsor of last year’s Lost City Music Festival.  For that reason, we’re incredibly happy and grateful to partner with them again!

PREVIEW: Lost City Winter Series Finale!

Man Mantis, Everending Kicks, Double Ewes (03-19-2013)

Can you believe it?  Today, March 19th, is the last day of winter!  Maybe it doesn’t feel like it, but I think it’s okay to celebrate the coming of the Vernal Equinox anyway.

Tonight, we’ll do exactly that in our 9th and final Lost City Winter Series show.  While I love all of the artists that have come through this wonderful winter shindig, I am admittedly more excited about this show than any other so far.  We’ve got Madison-favorites Man Mantis and Double Ewes, as well as Paul A. Benson (of Mt. Eerie, LAKE, etc) performing as Ever Ending Kicks.

Read on below for a taste of what’s to come.  And thanks for sticking with us!
