Invisible Familiars DISTURBING WILDLIFE Vinyl Record

Invisible Familiars DISTURBING WILDLIFE Vinyl Record
Invisible Familiars' debut album, Disturbing Wildlife, is out now! The band signed to Other Music this past spring, releasing the 7" single "Clever Devil" B&W "Digger's Invitation" in June. Stereogum called it, "T. Rex in a funhouse of horrors," advising, "Let it cast a spell on you." Invisible Familiars is led by Jared Samuel, a New York City-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has long made his living playing music and supporting a variety of NYC artists - from Sharon Jones to Martha Wainwright, and most recently, Cibo Matto and the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger. Samuel retreated to the seclusion of a houseboat docked in Jamaica Bay to write the music and words that would become Disturbing Wildlife. "It was the first time I'd ever spent more than one day completely by myself," said Samuel, "wondering just exactly what is real and then, ultimately, feeling fine." Back on land, Samuel enlisted good friend Michael Leonhart (Steely Dan/Yoko Ono) to co-produce the record and gathered a striking group of musicians to help perform it, including Robbie Mangano, Tim Kuhl, Jolie Holland, Yuka Honda & Miho Hatori (Cibo Matto), Nels Cline, Ryan Sawyer, Stuart Bogie (Antibalas), and many more. The latest single, "Heavenly All," is a lyrical treasure map to the transformative and often playful experience of solitude: talking to myself again, cravin heavy metal. Disturbing Wildlife is a record that slinks and slithers through time, defying the notion of genre and embracing the risk of feeling. It never let's the listener pin it down and, instead, returns the favor, holding you still between the sometimes-dream of existence and the exquisite power of Samuel's compositions.

Each record is protected within its record sleeve by a white vellum anti-dust sleeve.
