Vulpiano Records

Marilyn Roxie

Vulpiano Records was launched in November 2009 by synth musician Marilyn Roxie, initially as a place to house great unsigned and independent artists they had come in contact with through networking in the music blogosphere. The concept behind Vulpiano is simple: to offer quality free music. Genres we specialize in are ambient, electronic, and acoustic. All artists are linked by their spirit of independence and experimentation. We hope you enjoy and share the music.

Brevyn graces the keys again with the same elegant imagination we have seen across numerous releases. More than ever, there is a neoclassical feel to the New Age underpinnings: the sound of a romantic soloist operating an elaborate, Atlantean cathedral organ made of hundreds of winding coral pipes. A suite many shades of blue, traversed by ripples and shafts of light, forms patterns and reflective mirages that are entirely open to divination by the listener—luxuriously submerged in emotion....

With this sampler, we present artists who have made Vulpiano across the span of 2021 and into early 2022. We find both continuity and renewal of the recurring themes solidified at our core over 12 years. There are long-time pillars of the label: Richey Hackett’s tremendous growth branching into emotionally vital electronic compositions; the ever-versatile, 90s alternative-saturated introspections of King Elizabeth (furiously prolific since 2020 after a long absence since the early years of...

Welcome back for another filing in this discreetly dark era of Vulpiano, where organically recurring overtones have surfaced amongst the artists foraging herein. As per usual, we present diverse music with an experimental heart. We move through many melancholic, slow-burning hinterlands of sound collage, possessed phonographs, and transmission wave existentialism. But before that, there are hazy impressions of a never-summer, aqua-nostalgia, and acid-nocturnal driving music that scales an...

At its peaks, key, synth and string mesh together in orgiastic ecstasy; in its valleys, it is slowcore with shimmering guitar leads. While rhythmically rooted in an indie-dance pulse, there's a great deal of dynamic elasticity, with everything from fractured and paranoid breakbeat to lushly introspective acid house.

VULP-0002, the first single release from Vulpiano Records: Tiny Tide - The Smiths & The Cure, which is (you guessed it) a sort of tribute to both of those bands, with a particularly spot-on jangly guitar.

DYR FASER’s initial release for Vulpiano Records is a compilation of tracks from October 2015 through January 2016. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, DYR FASER is Eric Bøømhower, joined by Thalia Zedek on guitar in “Kōsō Biru” and in live performances playing guitar and singing vocal harmonies. DYR FASER Volum 1 is a wonderful swirl of synth and guitar, each song a dark, dangerous world of texture to get lost inside of. This is really one of the releases that I’ve been most proud of...

Trip.Logic - Here and Now (VULP-0087) Trip.Logic is an electronic music DJ and producer from California. Mutually intrigued by one another's artistic endeavors, I first met him a couple of years back at a Pictureplane gig in San Francisco where I was also being filmed for the  Three to Infinity: Beyond Two Genders  documentary. I was so floored by “Here and Now” that I asked Trip.Logic if he’d like to release it as part of the Vulpiano family and made  a music video collage  for the...

Baltic Avenue (VULP-0018) is Italian pop-rock group Tiny Tides' second offering on Vulpiano Records, the first being the single The Smiths & The Cure. The album was originally to be titled Gasoline Alley, says Mark Zonda: "since I was born and I still live in there, but I don't want to be confused with the Rod Stewart album and song", which is also pictured on the front cover. Baltic Avenue was cooked up especially for Vulpiano, a charmingly rustic, Beatles-inspired EP. Song...

Last seen on Vulpiano way back in 2013 with the eclectic bedroom pop-rooted opus ‘Bubbles’, immortal ebt / Danila Kozyrev returns with this altogether more warped and hypnagogic offering that reflects a tumultuous decade of vaporwave eating itself and distorted cultural feedback. Worn cassette textures and dreamy atmospheres overwhelm hazy vocals, but immortal ebt once again runs the gamut and there’s great care in the compositions: anesthetized tracks drowning in filtered samples,...

Following up from his 2014 album The Sins of Science, J.G. Hackett is back with a new album full to the brim with masterfully catchy synth rock as well as an exploration of new electronic styles. Words from the artist: It seems an age since I released any music. As many musicians will no doubt appreciate all too readily, life has got in the way. In my case that has been building a business, which has been so all-consuming my musical productivity has suffered. So it feels like a real treat to be...

A song built on contradictions, sonically chasing itself with a structure that layers as it gains its momentum of revelation. King Elizabeth takes a train ride out of the city, seeing the brick façades turn to stone slate as the clouds swell and break over the Peak District.

Vladee Divacc - Hoop Dreamz EP (VULP-0020) is the newest musical endeavor from Christian Filardo (Panda steps in chocolate, Orioles) and the first instance of what Filardo has dubbed as dunkwave, a dark, experimental, and basketball-centric form of music, perhaps best described over at Huevos as "If you can imagine David Lynch filming and producing an NBA game, this EP would probably come close to how it would sound". Treading the line between quirky and downright jarring, you can be...

North Hive - Immersion (VULP-0051) Immersion is a beautiful little album. It unravels slowly in its title track opener with sounds recalling nature, looping and enveloping, repetition morphing into change, and — later — voices. Spring-like and peaceful. "Immersion" fades into the meditative "Hyperborea", rippling waves of sound carrying the listener onward (and is that kittens I hear?). "Satellite" seems to depart from earth, off into space, more whirring and...

…and then i discovered its eyes, its face. inexpressive features, with no other trait save the eyes, two orifices, like brooches, wholly of transparent gold, lacking any life but looking, letting themselves be penetrated by my look, which seemed to travel past the golden level and lose itself in a diaphanous interior mystery. a very slender black halo ringed the eye and etched it onto the pink flesh, onto the rosy stone of the head, vaguely triangular, but with curved and triangular sides...

Another Vulpiano Records release: VULP-0003, a compilation of tracks from Zapa (originally from Spain, now in the UK), another musician I have collaborated with that I am ~ecstatic~ to have on the label! I previously described him on AFIN as having "a lovely delivery of lyrics, and a softly psychedelic style that is a perfect chill-out soundtrack". Go have a listen for yourself!

King Elizabeth's latest is a bleak offering whose repetition sticks in the head. Instrumental layers and anxious vocals accumulate; as guitars and metronomic synths drive, sirens blaring, through the exasperation of a rabid and myopic psycho-social landscape.
