Storm and Urge (VULP-0031) is the new EP release from Lately Kind of Yeah. These three tracks call up an atmosphere like that depicted on the cover: isolated in a clean, uncluttered room, you find yourself both comforted and…unsettled. Your mind wanders and then you remember where you are again, just as the music is over. And then you begin again.

From LKY’s bio:
Lately Kind of Yeah is the solo output of Nathan Rich (Delicatessens, Why Tired, Biollante), composed of lo-fi home recordings influenced by shoegaze, post-rock, psychedelic and ambient music.
"Homecoming" from King Elizabeth on Vulpiano Records (VULP-0030) is an epic intro to this one-man band from the UK. With influences from post-punk greats like Joy Division and the Associates to psychedelic-tinged music like The Doors and The Stone Roses, listening to King Elizabeth provides not only a complete listening experience, but into the beyond as well…”Homecoming” is pulled from forthcoming album Obsessive Desires, plus the single release includes b-side “Faith”.

Unsub's Perspective (VULP-0029) is this Filipino artist’s first foray into music recording, described as “inspired by artists like Explosions in the Sky, Earth, Tim Hecker, Ólafur Arnalds…a mix of a little ambient, drone doom, modern classical, slowcore… but ultimately post-rock at the core.” The atmosphere flows from eerie to peaceful as a flowing river, managing to evoke elements of both industry and nature.

Six-piece UK band Fire Island Pines' debut release Bratislava EP (VULP-0027) comes from Anton Rothschild (vocals and guitar; he previously released one of his solo albums, The Year of the Kitten, on Vulpiano Records in 2010), and “a band of Cornish indie wanderers”, Andy (drums), Ben (trumpet, flugel horn, percussion), Seamus (bass, glockenspiel), Simon (guitar), and Tom (guitar, vocals). The EP contains five tracks which each serve to signal the talent the band has for weaving smooth, compelling - and nd sometimes groovable, as in the case of “Heaven Till You Say” - songs.
From their press release: “Together [Fire Island Pines] have woven Anton’s bleak lyrics into a jaunty, uplifting sonic tapestry punctuated by shimmering trumpet lines and an unholy tri-guitar wall-of-jangle. The result; a distinctive yet accessible bittersweet pop parcel, is showcased to devastating effect on their debut release Bratislava…Fire Island Pines will be playing live throughout 2011 with plans to release a full-length album before the year is out…" Cover art is by BreeAnn Veenstra.

Following the single release of the same title, VULP-0026 is Richey Hackett’s eighth album Flawed Above Bored. Described by Hackett as much more stripped down than his previous release, Flawed finds Hackett rising out of the darkness of Void Songs and into lighter atmosphere even when the subject matter is heavy, with a strong sense of melody (“Breakdown in Communication”) and moving guitar work (“Modern Paranoia”, “Never Gonna Be Famous”). Stand-out tracks here include “Modern Paranoia”, “Flawed Above Bored”, and the churning, mysterious “To Bring Me Around”. Album cover designed by Ben Enser.

Prolific Vulpiano Records artist Richey Hackett's new single “Flawed Above Bored” (VULP-0025) is taken from the forthcoming album of the same name. Previously appearing on the label with a compilation, single, and album, Hackett has taken a uplifting and catchy direction quite different from the dark electronics of Void Songs.
