DOWNLOAD: Natural Snow Buildings - The Centauri Agent

Vulpiano Records is a relatively new web-based community label, run by Marilyn Roxie, that offers as many of their artists releases for free as possible. Each Vulpiano artist has at least one album, EP, or single for free download. The label is mainly folk or electronic-oriented, though the sounds within just one of their artists albums may stray beyond those boundaries; a label roster united more appropriately by a spirit of independence and experimentation.

The thirteenth release on the label is from a band who we have long admired - and paid a lod of money for too!  Last year's Shadow Kingdom album being one of our all time favourite packages.

VULP-0013 is Natural Snow Buildings’ first release of 2010, the free-for-download double LP TheCentauri Agent! On Part One, the 41 minute Our man from Centauri sets the stage, a cosmic, sprawling opener with themes that continue on into The accidental remote viewer, before fizzling out into static. Part Two is comprised of nine beautiful and intense tracks (particular stand-outs including The Psychic Circle/Uchronia, The storm of resurrection, and Solar flares). Lovely and intricately woven as ever, while frequently heading off into new and challenging sonic territory, Mehdi and Solange have created yet another very special work of musical art with The Centauri Agent!
