TVD Vinyl Giveaway: Invisible Familiars, Disturbing Wildlife

We’ve got a super-cool vinyl giveaway for you today from a fantastic new Brooklyn band called Invisible Familiars. The band may be new but the man behind the band is anything but new to the music world. Talented songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jared Samuel has 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.”

Invisible Familiars premiered this debut album, Disturbing Wildlife, via BrookynVegan prior to its release on Tuesday, January 27 and you can stream it all here. And you can order a copy via Other Music Recording here.

“T. Rex in a funhouse of horrors.  Let it cast a spell on you.”
—STEREOGUM

The New York trio will be celebrating the album release on January 30th at Baby’s All Right. This writer just saw them play in an intimate setting, at their residency at the new Bar LunAtico in Bed-Stuy two weeks ago, and I’ll assure you that you will be fully entertained!

But for now, how about entering to win a copy of Disturbing Wildlife? Duh. Just comment below with your favorite current NYC artist to be entered to win. We’ll choose a winner with a North American mailing address on January 30th! Our winner will be notified directly via email.
