  • Invisible Familiars streaming LP, playing shows (including one with mems of Delicate Steve, Cibo Matto, Sean Lennon, more)

    by Bill Pearis

    As mentioned, Invisible Familiars (aka NYC singer-songwriter Jared Samuel) will release his debut album, Disturbing Wildlife, next week (1/27) via Other Music.
