Ourmegadawn

Preorder (out April 11th, 2014):

CD – $10
Digital $8
Cassette – $6

Murfie CD + Digital – $10

The arrival of Ourmegadawn has been a long time coming. Despite frequent appearances in Riverwest and the general Milwaukee area, Ourmegadawn is the first proper album since Animals In Human Attire’s 2011 self-titled outing.

Members of the band spread their talents amongst various local acts (including Temple, Myles Coyne & the Rusty Nickel Band, The Zelda Routine, and others), but this specific arrangement of BREADKING frequenters drives a particular sound with vocals by Jack Tell steering the ensemble.

Beyond all else, Ourmegadawn is fun. It’s eight tracks of head-bobbing, folk-informed indie rock, and like all things BREADKING, Animals In Human Attire takes a punk approach to the whole album.

Sing Forward! Remix Contest

Sing Forward

Today is the culmination of a lot of work by a lot of cool people, and I wanted to make sure we shared it with you.  “Sing Forward” is a music video and grassroots promotional campaign designed to make sure YOU know the healthcare options available to you via healthcare.gov.  The song includes our good friends Myles Coyne, Anna Vogelzang, Shawn Pierce, Kyle Pfister and many more.

As I mentioned in my post over on the Murfie blog, it can be difficult for entrepreneurs, musicians and other creative professionals to know what coverage is available to them.  According to a recent national survey of artists conducted by the Future of Music Coalition, 43% of musicians lack health coverage – more than twice the average rate.  The more personal income derived from art, the less likely the artist is to be insured.

Pursuing creative, risky or bold endeavors should not mean having to risk your health.  Sing Forward aims to guide artists toward protection.  In addition to the music video, which can be viewed at SingForwardWI.com, Ninjas for Health are promoting an awesome remix contest.

Mine All Mine is proud to sponsor the remix contest, along with MadCity Music Exchange, Urban Community Arts Network, Murfie, High Noon Saloon and other Wisconsin music supporters.  To participate, submit your remix, cover or singalong in audio or video format via the Sing Forward site by February 14th.

Winners will be announced March 1st, and prizes include:

  • Mine All Mine Records Prize Pack
  • $50 Overture Center gift certificate
  • 2 True Endeavors concert tickets
  • albums from Strictly Discs and MadCity Music Exchange
  • 1 year of Murfie Gold + $10 Murfie credit
  • $50 cash prize from Ninjas for Health

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!

Record Store Day 2013

Record Store Day Haul 2013

I normally don’t do much blog-type writing here on the Mine All Mine site.  I try to keep it all business and promo, but we’re big fans of Record Store Day over here.  Earlier today, Tom Teslik released his new single at a special busking set outside MadCity Music Exchange, and I personally spent way too much money on music.  I’ve shared my haul below, and I’d love to hear what you walked away with.  Let me know in the comments!
