Preorder: Animals In Human Attire – Ourmegadawn (CD/Tape/Digital: 4-11-14)

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.

DOWNLOAD: Kitty Rhombus – Gentle Shotgun Single

Kitty Rhombus - Gentle Shotgun

Gentle Shotgun is the first single by dual-city rockers Kitty Rhombus released in anticipation of the band’s upcoming full-length album, Spectre at the Feast. Recorded over the course of a year driving back and forth between Madison and Minneapolis, Spectre at the Feast hits hard and builds on the insanity of Kitty Rhombus’ previous album, 2010’s Lips & Arms.

Spectre at the Feast expands on the band’s character, and their unwillingness to stick with a single idea longer than necessary allows Kitty Rhombus to fill the album with surprises from start to finish. It’s a fun and engaging album to say the least, and Gentle Shotgun is just a taste of what to expect when Kitty Rhombus drops the full album with shows in the band’s two home cities. Spectre at the Feast is being released on CD, tape and in digital formats.

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

TONIGHT: Softly, Dear w/ William Z. Villain, Twin Window, Marai Binagi @ the Frequency

Softly Dear Drinks Drinks

Thursday, December 12th @ 9:00PM
The Frequency // $5 // 18+

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.

OUT NOW: Us, Today // Lovely Socialite Split Tape

Us, Today / Lovely Socialite

Buy This:

Digital (Bandcamp) – $5 Minimum
Cassette Tape + Download – $6

 

Mine All Mine is excited to bring together two of our absolute favorite jazz rock outfits for this exclusive cassette split (+ digital download).

Us, Today (CINCINNATI) and Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps (MADISON) both create original tunes that are equally experimental and accessible at the same time, something few acts can successfully pull off. This is no surprise, however, knowing the bands’ considerable combined years of music education. The bottom line is that both groups know what they are doing, and they do it well.

Us, Today (guitar, drums, vibes) start out with Long Since Forgotten, a tune that starts out rather laid back, but grows steadily with determined bursts over its 6-minute duration. What follows is Violent Proclivity, which features subtle, subdued vibes and guitar that really highlight some intense drum work.

Lovely Socialite (bass, trombone, cellos, pipa, vibes, drums, flute) fill their side with the 11+ minute track All Things At Once. Recorded during tracking of the band’s upcoming sophomore album, All Things At Once is a free improvisation that sees the band taking off with out-there rock grooves.

Purchase of this cassette split includes download of two exclusive remixes of the split by Nude Human (Pat Reinholz of Lovely Socialite & John Praw of Pushmi-Pullyu).
