Sonic Magazine article about San Diego music...

Journalist Erik Augustin Palm spent a few days here some weeks back gathering interviews and info for what turned out to be a rather lengthy piece on the long-standing music scene here in town. I haven't read it yet, but Volar Records (along with Art Fag Recordings and a slew of bands) is a part of the article, and the editors at the mag were nice enough to include both Christmas Island ("29" off the Captured Tracks 7") and Spirit Photography ("Where is the Light" from the upcoming 6 X 2 X 12" on Volar Records feat. Defektors/O Voids/Sharp Ends/Ale Mania/Beaters/Spirit Photography) on their bonus disc.


CALIFORNIA DREAMIN' AGAIN

Wrapped in sunshine, palm trees and lined with miles of beaches, we know San Diego as Southern California's major holiday resort. The city has been called a cultural desert, but in recent years an indie scene has emerged that today is one of the most interesting in the U.S.. Erik Augustin Palm traveled to SoCal and talked to the artists and record label owners, and gives reports from the concerts, clubs and parties.
