VULPIANO RECORDS for Netlabel Day

Vulpiano Records Artists and Newcomers —

Vulpiano Records is once again participating in Netlabel Day. Last year’s event was a great success with 4 widely downloaded exclusive releases. I would love for some Vulpiano folks to join me once again for this very cool event on July 14th, 2017. If you are an artist that has not yet released with Vulpiano, here is your chance to participate!

This year’s deadline for participating is Friday, June 23rd 2017. You can release a single, EP, album, or compilation with Vulpiano. If you’re interested, please send along a ZIP file (320kbps+ mp3s and/or lossless WAVs for converting into mp3 and FLAC only) and any details about your album you’d like people to know before the deadline to marilynroxie [at] gmail.com.

Netlabel Day is an event initiated by the Chilean netlabel, M.I.S.T. Records where international netlabels come together to put out a flurry of high quality releases to celebrate netlabels and Creative Commons releases. More information is available here: https://netlabelday.blogspot.com/

The release must be a digital exclusive for Vulpiano licensed with Creative Commons. The standard Vulpiano license is Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives, which means people can share but not modify the work or use it commercially, though you can request any other Creative Commons license you like.

Vukovar – “The Three Shades” Music Video Collage

Music video collage by Marilyn Roxie for Vukovar’s “The Three Shades” single on Vulpiano Records.

With ‘The Three Shades’, Vukovar emerge once more from amongst the ruins of fallen industry and issue a proclamation: but rather than spell it out, these hushed voices speak in concrete-language. To understand you must submit to the subliminal.

This time the trio are joined by 80’s cult movie star, ‘Queen of the B’s’ Dawn Wildsmith; truly a match made in purgatory.

‘The Three Shades’ is a glimpse into Vukovar’s ever evolving creative processes, where the minimal is maximalist and all things real and unreal are just grist for the mill.

Bio and Background Information:

Golden Grey is an electronic journey through soft bells and glitchy rhythms conveying an outcome of emotion. The debut album “Awaken The Wolf” contains five tracks, each sculpted carefully to impress. Golden Grey’s identity remains a mystery but that makes the music that much more intriguing. It’s electronic music that is simple, yet cinematic, inspired by artists such as Tennyson, Baths and Tycho.

Interview by Rave and Roll Blog with Marilyn Roxie and Dan Wreck

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.
