Anyone who has followed this blog over the years knows that I have a huge soft spot for 80s alternative music, synthesizers, musicians who think outside of the box, and sultry British voices. When Marilyn Roxie (founder/creator of net music label Vulpiano Records) asked me to review Neurotic Wreck’s latest compilation, I must say I hit the lottery on all counts.
I am very proud to offer the latest album from Neurotic Wreck on Vulpiano Records: Glow Ghosts. Glow Ghosts has a little bit of everything that sole force Dan Wreck behind the musical project has on offer – sultry synth pop, girl-group inspired broken heart anthems, and sweet acoustic crooning. Recommended if you like Gary Numan, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Durutti Column. Neurotic Wreck has two previous Vulpiano releases: Priceless, Bloody Pricelessand I’m Laura Palmer.

Glow Ghosts is released for Marilyn Roxie’s Vulpiano Records on Net Label Day on 14/07/2016. This is released ahead of Sandalphon on Small Bear Records on the Autumnal Equinox in September. I hope Glow Ghosts haunt you wherever you go.
A virtual six disc, 25 track masterpiece from Natural Snow Buildings, following up from their previous Vulpiano Records installments The Night Country and 2010 Vulpiano exclusive The Centauri Agent. As towering as Daughter of Darkness, a favorite release of mine from their impressive catalog and what introduced me to NSB in the first place, I am incredibly pleased to offer Aldebaran to you as a Netlabel Day exclusive. The release also includes beautiful album artwork, giving a hint to the unearthly content within.
Taker 51′s Melanchordia is comprised of three beautiful ambient-acoustic, previously unreleased tracks. Peaceful, introspective, a little haunting – the perfect treat to celebrate Netlabel Day!
Taker 51 has previously released film soundtracks on Vulpiano Records as Raúl Díaz Palomar for Maqbara — the story of the Muslim community’s social and cultural impact in Avila, Spain in medieval times and the archeological unearthing of the Muslim cemetery, the maqbara, in 1999 —and Música Para Poder Contra Verdad, a documentary that tells the story of the Royal Cotton Factory in Avila and its subsequent destruction by fire.
