NOW STREAMING: Pushmi-Pullyu – Never Love A Stranger

Pushmi-Pullyu - Never Love A Stranger

We’re happy to announce that Pushmi-Pullyu’s upcoming album, Never Love A Stranger, is now streaming for a limited time on Madison’s own Arts Extract.  Until the release on July 2nd, you can stream Never Love A Stranger in its entirety here.

Here’s what Arts Extract’s Scott Gordon had to say about the album:

Madison’s Pushmi-Pullyu has evolved over the years from a sparse electronic-pop solo project to a full-band vehicle for John Kruse’s wandering, frequently morose songs. The five-piece comprises Kruse on keyboards, glockenspiel and vocals; Corey Murphy on keyboards; Luke Annear on drums; Tom Teslik on guitar; and Sam Ludwig on saxophone. Stream the band’s first album, Never Love A Stranger, for free in its entirety until its release on July 2. The album is available through Mine All Mine Records, and the band will celebrate with a July 24 show at the Memorial Union Terrace.

Check it out while you can, and thanks to Arts Extract for the feature!

PREVIEW: Boys, A Haircut, Soul Low, Dakotas

BOYS

This is how you spend a Sunday night in Madison.  Three excellent and fun local acts with a pleasantly matched traveling act.  Join us tomorrow night at the Dragonfly Lounge for another great set of bands.  Read on below for press quotes and streaming previews for each band.

BOYS, A Haircut, Soul Low, Dakotas
$5 Cover, 21+, Music at 9:00PM.

The Dragonfly Lounge
401 E. Washington



BOYS (MISSOULA)
“Moody fuzzed-out guitars and deceptively simple arrangements sound as if they were pulled from an AM radio during a late night try at coitus.” – Missoula Independent



A Haircut (MADISON)
“In the band A Haircut, Lutz yelps over fat, fuzzy guitar tones and Trester’s simple drum patterns. Titles on their eight-song demo include “Lizard Skin” and “A Native Scalping.” Before forming A Haircut, Lutz played in a Milwaukee folk duo called Audrea, which once covered Misfits’ “Last Caress,” singing about a baby’s death over cheerful tambourine and harmonica. Trester’s drum kit includes parts salvaged from the trash.” – Scott Gordon, The Daily Page



Soul Low (MADISON/MILWAUKEE)
“Soul Low is a three piece Indie/Rock band made up of Sam Gehrke, Jake Balistrieri & Charlie Celenaza. Based out of Milwaukee, the group seemed to come to a complete halt last year when Gehrke took of for school. But after a year of little activity Soul Low are making an exciting comeback with a slew of recent shows, new songs, & eleven day tour to the east coast.” – Mouse Corn, FunTV



Dakotas (MADISON)
“Dakotas represented the first Madison band of brothers (literally, two of the members are brothers) to take the stage, and they played a blaring set of American rock highly reminiscent of The Strokes circa Room on Fire.” – Jaime Brackeen, MadisonNightOut

Pushmi-Pullyu Releases New Single

Pushmi-Pullyu - In The Bleak Midwinter

“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.
