    Loren, Suzanne & Neel...In Stores Now

    August 28, 2020

    In physical record stores now...

    Loren Connors’ Beautiful Dreamer 10-inch, a two-part suite dedicated to Steve Dalachinsky... and...

    Suzanne Langille & Neel Murgai’s Come When The Raven Calls LP — blood rich, blues testimonies communicated from vocals, overtone singing and daf.

    Both were released digitally in June as we looked for hope and strength during the lockdown.  Now both records are making the way to your favorite shop globally via Secretly Distribution. Get your mask on and go see your record shop clerk -- they miss you!

    Suzanne And Neel Back In Flight

    May 15, 2020

    It's been a long time -- a decade -- since the debut by Suzanne Langille and Neel Murgai, Wild & Foolish Heart. That LP came out of nowhere, and knocked a lot of people, well, on their heart. Flipped their head around, too. Since then we've waited, and waited... and now, Come When The Raven Calls is ready to take flight. The LP is Suzanne and Neel's song cycle of loss and empowerment -- a fusion of American spiritual blues and trance-like percussion with multi-note vocal overtones. Get ready to be knocked over again (and again). 

    This nine-song album comes out during a time of uncertainty, so we are taking a few approaches to distribution. It will be available for direct mailorder from us to you starting June 5, here at F-V.com and at Bandcamp; the same day you can stream it on your platform of choice. We are also offering a limited time LP Bundle -- get discount when you buy this LP with the new Loren Connors' Beautiful Dreamer 10" -- go here for that offer.

    American and international record stores can expect to begin selling the LP on August 21.

    Shipping From A Distance

    April 4, 2020

    USPS Please Pick Up - Thanks!

    That's the worn sign we leave out for our friendly postal worker when there are packages ready to be picked up. During these uncertain times, Family Vineyard will continue to mail out physical sales placed through the website and Bandcamp as long as the postman continues to make stops here. Music makes us feel good, even fantastic when it's truly needed, and we're gonna keep getting it to you in whatever format you choose. Thanks for your continued support and we urge you to keep in touch and keep a social distance. See you soon.

    20 Years Of FV (and a sale too)

    January 5, 2020

    This past November marked 20 years since Family Vineyard’s first releases. Thank you! It's been a long journey we've all been on.

    We like to think back to the very kind words of John Darnielle who captured the whole ethos of the label.

    "... Family Vineyard occupy a particular corner of the music universe, serving up equal parts talent, ambition and pretension from people who don't shrink from the word 'artist' and who make honest, blood-leaking efforts to be worthy of the name." (from "Last Plane to Jakarta" fanzine).

    Throughout 2020 we’ll be sharing more about the past two decades and celebrating with new and archival releases.

    Those first two releases in 1999 were: Bruce Anderson & Dale SophiaStrict (FV1) and Loren MazzaCane Connors & Darin GrayThe Lost Mariner (FV2) — both compact discs and still available in very limited quantities.

    To show our thanks to for sticking with us, this week we are offering 25% off all purchases -- physical and digital. Use the code FV20SALE at checkout. The sale is good through Sunday, Jan. 12.

    Willimantic, China

    October 15, 2019

    The American debut release from Lao Dan -- Live At Willimantic Records -- has made it to Old Paradise Bookstore (旧天堂书店) in Shenzhen, China. That's a world away from Willimantic, Connecticut -- where this was recorded with Paul Flaherty, Randall Colbourne and Damon Smith. The rest of the world can get their hands on this exquisite and furious compact disc (or digital version) on December 6.
