Softly, Dear (EAU CLAIRE)
William Z. Villain (MADISON)
Twin Window (MADISON)
Marai Binagi (MADISON)


Tonight is an exciting show for us.  For the first time, we’re bringing together Eau Claire’s Softly, Dear and Madison’s own William Z. Villain.  Both acts had debut releases on Mine All Mine this past year, and it’s great to have them under the same roof.

William Z. Villain first visited us in early July with their self-titled EP featuring “skilled / clinically insane rock” recorded in Bill Villain’s den.  You can stream or download that release here.  Bill Villain also made his first ambient effort on the COLIAS 1 double CD release.

One month later saw the debut release of Softly, Dear’s Portico EP.  Originally out on self-released CD-r, we put out the limited run tape, including a bonus Phobos remix of one of our personal favorites, Melange.  You can stream or download Portico here, or snag one of the limited remaining copies of the cassette here.

Rounding out the night are two other Madison acts – Twin Window and Marai Binagi.  You can catch two Twin Window tunes on their SoundCloud.  As for Marai Binagi, you’ll have to be surprised!

For samples of each of these acts, check out their pages above, or visit the link below.

Watch Us, Today Recording “Long Since Forgotten”

In the beginning of November, we brought you one of our most highly anticipated releases of the year – a split between jazz-rockers Lovely Socialite and Us, Today.  You can stream that split here, or purchase the (very limited run) tape here.  Today, we’re happy to share with you the above video, which shows Us, Today recording “Long Since Forgotten,” which appears on their side of the split.

The recording session, which serves as the band’s official music video, was produced by Dominic Marino with editing by Mac Clenney.  Us, Today was filmed and recorded at Grayscale Cincinnati.

As an added bonus, you can watch the band performing the second piece on their side of the split “Violent Proclivity” in a separate session here.  And here’s a video of Lovely Socialite performing their elementary hit, Brachiosaurus Boogie (For Kids)….

Madison’s only absurdist rock super-group Cribshitter (self-proclaimed as “one of America’s most talented and versatile musician/entertainers”) dig out their own niche with equal doses of musical proficiency, bizarre concepts and potty humor.  The band is consistently genre-defying, and their dedication to the goof is unwavering.  “Mint Car” features mostly-new material (plus a few #1 hits) designed specifically for your station wagon, Sony Walkman™ and/or Tiger Delux Talkboy™.  Expect country, dubstep, make-out tunes and more.
