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!

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.
