FREE DOWNLOAD: Gobi Bear’s Mais Grande EP

Gobi Bear - Mais Grande EP

Gobi Bear is the alter ego of Guimarães, Portugal resident Diogo Pinto. Previously only available in physical formats, Mais Grande is Gobi Bear’s first release on Mine All Mine. While Diogo finalizes his first full-length – to be released next month – we’re happy he’s decided to visit us with this excellent free EP.

From the cheerful bells of “Summertime,” to the loneliness of “3 Feet,” to the darkness in “Lisbon,” Mais Grande is a good taste of Gobi Bear’s range as a solo artist. Grab the EP for free today, and when Diogo announces his plans for his upcoming full-length, we’ll be sure let you know where to find it!

All songs written by Diogo Pinto. Artwork by Anoik. Recorded, produced and mastered by Henrique Toscano.

SHOW PREVIEW: Asumaya, Paperhaus, Lion’s Mouth

Paperhaus

Monday, September 30th @ 9:00PM
The Dragonfly Lounge // $5 Cover // 21+

Paperhaus (WASHINGTON, DC)
Asumaya (MADISON)
Lion’s Mouth (MADISON)


Paperhaus is a psychedelic alt-blues band from Washington, DC. “Lo Hi Lo” (embedded above) was recorded at DC’s legendary Inner Ear Studios with producer Ivan Basuri, and reflects the more pop side of Paperhaus’ psychedelic music. A full length LP of more blues and funk influenced psychedelic music is in the works and will be released in 2014.  [excerpt from band press]

 

Madison’s own Asumaya creates percussive loop-based tunes that draw equally from international and math rock music.  His time in Africa is always present, never going so far as to become a gimmick.  Asumaya’s Luke Bassuener also lends his rhythmic talents to the band CONTROL.

Last, but not least, is alt/indie-pop act Lion’s Mouth.  This Madison two-piece is made up of Sara W. and Chelsea Z.  While I’ve yet to see them live, you can listen to them via their ReverbNation link above.  The band describes themselves as having “the sensibilities of pop, the relentless energy of punk, and the heart and soul of folk.”

NEW RELEASE: BREADFEST 2013 SAMPLER (Compiled by Myles Coyne)

BREADFEST 2013 SAMPLER

DOWNLOAD & COMMENT HERE.

A Note From Myles Coyne:

Here it is ya’ll – the first release in a series of digital samplers. These are my “Mouse Mixes.” Mine All Mine and I will be throwing a few of these together over the next few months in an effort to raise awareness of some of our favorite bands that you might not have caught wind of yet.

BREADFEST 2013 SAMPLER! Number one, baby. In case you didn’t know, we over here in Milwaukee caught wind of Mine All Mine’s Lost City Music Festival last year in Madison. Playing the festival was awesome, and it was an amazing experience hanging out for the rest of the weekend at all the other shows.

Back home in Milwaukee, everyone in BREADKING had always joked about doing our own fest. We figured, “Hell, everyone’s doing it.” So we set up our own music fest.

BREADFEST will be hosting some of our favorite bands for a two-day extravaganza throughout Milwaukee’s Riverwest community from June 29th to 30th. All age’s shows will be held both days of the fest at Cocoon Room and Jackpot Gallery. Both nights will end at a different local bar – Quarters and Stonefly Brewery.

We put together this sampler for your face melting pleasure. Scowler, one of my favorite Milwaukee bands start off the mix. Though the gang couldn’t make the fest, their singer Kyle Thomas Smith is opening Day 1 at Cocoon Room with a solo set before Moaded brings it with their intense live antics. Victor Shores plays after. Their song “No Name, Just Socks” is the second track on the mix – probably one of the most played songs/tapes in my friends group ever. FACT.

Others tracks, like “2” by Old Earth, showcase the fest’s sweet tooth for experimental jams, coming at you with a ten-minute Gibson SG jam. Local favorites like, Alta, Absolutely and Soul Low even drop a track from their earlier albums.

The sampler is just a taste of the bands that will playing BREADFEST, so join us on June 29 & 30th. Be apart of Milwaukee music scene. Lets hang out and fall over. Fun times!

– Myles
