Limited Edition Cassette Tape – Available 9/7: Cassette Store Day


Just in time for the first ever Cassette Store Day, Mine All Mine is happy to present the limited edition tape release of the third full-length album by The Fatty Acids. Boléro is an insane – both in concept and content. On Boléro, The Fatty Acids are half a dozen grown boys making incredibly powerful and inventive pop rock tunes.

Side A starts with the album’s most driving song, Girls and Gods, with clapping and wailing voices that soon give way to an almost ballad-like state, only to morph once again in a bouncy irreverence. Perhaps most interesting are The Fatty Acids’ choices when it comes to melody and harmony – they are legitimately unpredictable yet perfectly understandable.

If you’re interested, grab your copy now! Mine All Mine has very limited quantities of the cassette release. For digital and other physical formats, consult The Fatty Acids directly, who are self-releasing this excellent album with a release show at The Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, WI with Faux Fir and Sat. Nite Duets.

Editor’s Note:
All songs written, recorded and mixed by The Fatty Acids in 2011-13, Mostly in Milwaukee, WI. Mastered by Emily Lazar at The Lodge NYC, assisted by Rich Morales. All songs copyright The Fatty Acids.

Supplementary vocals on “Sportskin” by Monica Martin. Supplementary vocals on “Worst Part” by Joel Van Haren, Molly “Cool Coach” Stepnik and Ben Gucciardi.

The Lost City Music Festival 2013 starts tonight, 8/8 at 8:00 PM at the High Noon Saloon.  This first show, one of many (see the schedule here), is extra special: this show marks the release of FOUR brand new entries in the Mine All Mine catalog.  Read on below for more information about each release.  You can grab all four of these releases tonight at the High Noon.

The newest EP from Wisconsin slow-rockers bell monks, A Better Light, features the band opposite Madison’s multi-talented Shawn Kenneth Pierce (Dharmonic Deluxe, Pioneer).  This 5-track EP stands in contrast to last year’s double-disc opus, Let the Waves Carry Us.  The CD version of A Better Light will cost just $3, and all proceeds from sales of the album (digital or CD) will be donated to the Fort Atkinson Arts Council.

mam243 – Softly, Dear – Portico

mam243 – Softly, Dear – Portico (Cassette Tape & Digital)

Softly, Dear has a very ‘Wisconsin’ sound.  Portico is the debut effort from this Eau Claire-based band, who formed late summer 2012.  After brewing for a while, it’s ready to breathe.  Softly, Dear is made up of Tyler Hart, Josh Frederick, Alex Adkinson, Ben Possi and Addie Strei.  Mine All Mine is proud to release this limited-run cassette version of the previously-self-released EP, including a bonus Phobos remix of one of our personal favorites, Melange.  Grab the cassette tonight.

Nude Human is the ambient duo of prolific experimenters John Praw and Pat Reinholz.  Founded in 2012, the band has focused on creating live soundscapes, most frequently choosing to perform in 4.0 surround sound.  Blind? is made up of a live recording on August 1st, 2012 for the first Lost City Music Festival.  This limited edition CD is released exclusively at the Lost City Music Festival 2013, as Nude Human prepares to record their debut full-length album.

mam245 - Lovely Socialite - Star-Spangled

mam245 – Lovely Socialite – Star-Spangled Single (Art Print & Digital)

 After the successful Kickstarter-funded release of Registers Her Delight, Madison’s heavy hitting jazz rock ensemble Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps scattered to the wind.  Now living in multiple cities, the band has found the means to return to record their new, as-of-yet-untitled full-length album.  Mixing modern jazz with unique instrumentation (vibraphone, cello, bass, drums, trombone and Chinese instruments), Star-Spangled is the first single off the band’s new album.  Recorded just a month ago, the single includes Lovely Socialite’s take on the Star-Spangled Banner, as well as an extended improvisation.  Star-Spangled is being released as a limited edition 10-inch art print and digital download.

PREVIEW: Lost City Winter Series Finale!

Man Mantis, Everending Kicks, Double Ewes (03-19-2013)

Can you believe it?  Today, March 19th, is the last day of winter!  Maybe it doesn’t feel like it, but I think it’s okay to celebrate the coming of the Vernal Equinox anyway.

Tonight, we’ll do exactly that in our 9th and final Lost City Winter Series show.  While I love all of the artists that have come through this wonderful winter shindig, I am admittedly more excited about this show than any other so far.  We’ve got Madison-favorites Man Mantis and Double Ewes, as well as Paul A. Benson (of Mt. Eerie, LAKE, etc) performing as Ever Ending Kicks.

Read on below for a taste of what’s to come.  And thanks for sticking with us!

$5 Cover, 21+, Music at 9:00PM.
