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 chaotic than the others, but chaos too is natural, perhaps the most natural thing of all.
"Larva" is the most unsettling piece here, as cavernous and creepy-crawly as one would expect from the title. It tumbles into "Serenity", which finishes the album. Much darker than Immersion began, the serenity here is touched with a bright piano and spacey twinklings in the background.

Bisamråtta’s self-titled LP (VULP-0048) follows up his solo EP released last year on Vulpiano Records. Bisamråtta (Vlad Luchansky, Russia) has a style that is subtle and sweet in the ambient caresses and static that travel in and out of your ear while listening…Some songs are more floating and difficult to grasp, though no less pleasing, than others: for example, the transition between the pleasantly drifting opener “Lunga Blockera” and the more rhythmically driven “Hud Uppfatta” is striking.
Electronics, atmospheric noise and sung or spoken snippets, and guitar are all used to great effect onBisamråtta. Luchansky has here crafted another beautiful work that rings loud — and, importantly soft — of the natural world, the body (note the song titles and cover art, and emotion.

guinpens - Bubbles (VULP-0047) is the first Vulpiano release from this mysterious, quietly prolific artist; I heard a revolving door of quite sonically different possible album selections for the label before this remastered release was selected. Bubbles is difficult to pin down - “experimental” is such a large catch-all, not nearly descriptive enough. As with all of the artists on Vulpiano, this guinpens release is a fine testament to the creative feats and that the self-made artist can achieve.
Perhaps the tags “kids” and “hell” provided on guinpen’s Bandcamp provide a better idea of what to expect? Indeed, the mood alternates between pleasantly tuneful and sweet, if trippy, and something darker, “Creepshow” providing my favorite blend of these two sides. Multi-layered instrumentation and echoing vocals, Bubbles is an all around pleasant change of pace and yet another reminder of why I enjoy bringing content to you on Vulpiano.

Zapa - Words: A Tribute to W.B. Yeats (VULP-0046) is a beautiful acoustic album, setting the poetry of William Butler Yeats to music. Miguel Zapata hails from Spain and is now located in London. This is the second Zapa release on Vulpiano Records after quite awhile, the first being 2009 compilation Songs 2006-2009. I am very pleased to offer this sweet tribute to a great poet by this talented fellow here on Vulpiano. I recommend checking out his incredible art as well.

Aseptic Void - Carnal (VULP-0045) is out now. Italian multi-instrumentalist Davide T, known here as Aseptic Void, has followed up their previous Vulpiano Records EP Alone with an impressive continuation of dark themes and masterful use of static, haunting spaces in their music, including silence.
The theme of the album is the flesh and abominations of the concepts of limit. A black hole of anti-identity in which to get pleasantly lost. The truth of the flesh is multifaceted.

Neurotic Wreck’s I’m Laura Palmer EP (VULP-0044) is the latest offering from the talented UK singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dan Wreck. After positively reviewing his previous music submission Leave Tonight Mixtape Side 2 on A Future in Noise, I was immediately interested in a future Neurotic Wreck release becoming part of the Vulpiano library. Here it is - four tracks that showcase his eclectic sound well, from spooky synth work (“I’m Laura Palmer”) to his impassioned and melancholic singer-songwriter approach (“My Reason to Believe”, “Crowned”) and even a slice of girl-group-esque sweetness (“Show Me Who Broke Your Heart”).
