Recorded, mixed and mastered at House Arrest Recording Co. in Madison, WI by Brian Nolan (American Hi-Fi). Album art by John Praw.
All songs arranged by Pushmi-Pullyu. Lyrics on Bleak Midwinter by Christina Rosesetti, sometime before 1872. Lyrics on Past by John Galsworthy, sometime before 1933. Howl III written by Cassidy J. David-Weber, sometime before 2010. All other lyrics by John Praw.
We’re happy to announce that Pushmi-Pullyu’s upcoming album, Never Love A Stranger, is now streaming for a limited time on Madison’s own Arts Extract. Until the release on July 2nd, you can stream Never Love A Stranger in its entirety here.
Here’s what Arts Extract’s Scott Gordon had to say about the album:
Madison’s Pushmi-Pullyu has evolved over the years from a sparse electronic-pop solo project to a full-band vehicle for John Kruse’s wandering, frequently morose songs. The five-piece comprises Kruse on keyboards, glockenspiel and vocals; Corey Murphy on keyboards; Luke Annear on drums; Tom Teslik on guitar; and Sam Ludwig on saxophone. Stream the band’s first album, Never Love A Stranger, for free in its entirety until its release on July 2. The album is available through Mine All Mine Records, and the band will celebrate with a July 24 show at the Memorial Union Terrace.
Check it out while you can, and thanks to Arts Extract for the feature!
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!
It’s time for another entry into our Lost City Winter Series! Things have been pretty cold and snowy, so take the night off at the Dragonfly Lounge with us! Tonight we’ve got four excellent acts – don’t miss it!
UPDATE: Brontosaurus has, unfortunately, had to cancel due to van problems. But the show must go on!
“In The Bleak Midwinter” is a new single from Pushmi-Pullyu’s first full-band album, Never Love A Stranger. Originally arranged for a live performance on WYOU, “In The Bleak Midwinter” is the band’s take on a classic carol with words by the English poet Christina Rossetti (circa 1872).
Never Love A Stranger documents Pushmi-Pullyu’s shift from electronic ambient pop to completely instrumented textural rock.
