Vulpiano Records

Vulpiano Records was launched in November 2009 by synth musician Marilyn Roxie. Initially created as a place to house unsigned and independent artists Roxie had gotten to know from connecting with friends on Last.fm and submissions to their music blog A Future in Noise. These artists got on board with Roxie’s vision of a carefully curated selection of legally free digital music. The music is licensed under Creative Commons to encourage sharing of this fabulous music with friends and through blogs and podcasts. Some artists choose to offer pay-what-you-want or limited physical release copies in addition to the digital release. In June 2011, Solange Gularte of Natural Snow Buildings designed a logo of a fox curled up (one eye shut, one watchful eye open) for the netlabel.

Vulpiano Records is now available in its entirety on Internet Archive and a selection of 256kbps+ releases is available on Free Music Archive. We are proudly participating with special releases for Netlabel Day on July 14th, 2017.

Music video for “Zug der Krautrock” by Jinsie Preiss:

Her music is utterly fantastic it feels like what I envision as a Utopia, the sound is so surreal and melancholy but at the same time is like a car chase at 120 miles and hour when one car is ready to hit the other, and the whole scene plays out like a scene from the movie Fargo. Then the next moment you feel like you are in heaven or getting ready to play football with one of the Three Stooges or Johnny Unitas. – ChrisPC, USA
