Mush Records began as an instrumental label with an ever-changing geographical location, but soon expanded to include a wide array of musical styles and a cast of equally diaphanous characters whose insular collaborations involve endless permutations of the label's artists. Hip-hop, indie rock, turntables and jazz all have a home at Mush these days, and the crème de la Mush's hip-hop/spoken word crème from all over the nation are touring North America in a whirlwind of mad poetry and crazy beats. The hard part is getting all the names down and figuring out who's on stage with whom during which set. But whether or not you've got the facts straight, you'll find the music irresistible. Local dream-inducing noisemakers and Mush kindred spirits, Fog, will join the tour for its Minneapolis and Chicago shows.
