Though fresh to the Free Music Archive, Vulpiano records has been around the netlabel and Creative Commons music scene since 2009. Launched by synth artist Marilyn Roxie, the label was originally intended to promote and gather unsigned artists who wanted to share their music online in the music blogosphere.
In their own words, "Vulpiano Records isn’t an ordinary label. Vulpiano is a collective and a community. The concept behind Vulpiano is simple: to offer quality free music. Genres we specialize in are ambient, electronic, and acoustic. All artists are linked by their spirit of independence and experimentation. We hope you enjoy and share the music."
The full back catalogue is available on the Internet Archive, but you can find current selections on Vulpiano's curator portal on the FMA, including Natural Snow Buildings, Aseptic Void, Fire Island Pines, and Lately Kind of Yeah, among others.
The releases on Vulpiano fall on various points in the spectrum from electronic to acoustic, and could all be described to some degree as experimental. The music on Vulpiano is all licensed CC BY NC ND, which means it's free to stream, download, and include in a noncommercial podcast or broadcast - as long as you credit the artist. More is coming, if you like what you hear, including a special release for Netlabel Day 2016!
Cruise over to their page and give 'em a warm welcome, or listen to this sampler of what Vulpiano has to offer!
