Upcoming Records--Nerves Tribute Comp LP/Cass, Stalins of Sounds 7" EP

Now that the 6X2X12" split, Black Orphan 7" EP, and Audacity 7" EP are about to go out, we're sending off the next three records.

First up is another co-release with I Hate Rock n Roll, a year-in-the-works tribute compilation to Paul Collins, Peter Case, and Jack Lee of the Nerves, the Beat, the Breakaways, Plimsouls, et. al.  Fortunately we took our time with this one, as we're incredibly happy with the results.  Eighteen of our favorite bands around doing their own takes on the material.  You can hear the Mantles' "A Million Miles Away" and Davila 666's "Hanging on the Telephone" at www.myspace.com/volarrecords, and Grass Widow's "Walking Out on Love" and So Cow's "Working Too Hard" at www.myspace.com/ihrnr.   Many thanks to all the bands for their contributions, we couldn't be happier.

LIMITED COLOR REPRESS!
VOLAR01/SSR10
Beaters “Fishage” 7”

Here we have a limited color repress of the sold out debut 7” of San Diego’s Beaters, a split release with Single Screen Records, springs from the ashes of San Diego punk/soul/garage legends the Sess, comprising three members of that band.  Lead by Jeremy Rojas, their brand of “pre-apocalyptic” mutant-punk fuses early-80s punk with a gamut of paranoia and weirdness, and live the band stands out as a true propulsive force.  They’re doing some West Coast dates with Spirit Photography in mid-December, and more dates in February.  The “White Hate” 7” is available from Zoo Music, the label run by Brandon from the Crocodiles and Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls, and below you can find the debut 7” of Ale Mania, comprised of the same 3/5 members from the Sess, but this time lead by their drummer, Andrew Montoya, fusing punk, funk, and new wave parano…

NEW RELEASES

The label's first releases since late last year are about ready to go out.  You can order to the right of this page, and listen to various tracks from these and other upcoming releases at the Volar Myspace.

New Releases from Volar Records—6X2X12” (Canada vs. USA), Black Orphan 7” EP, Audacity 7” EP

This long-in-development compilation is finally seeing the light of day.  Featuring three of Canada’s best post-punk acts coupled with three of San Diego’s, this 12” highlights the common ground that acts in both countries share.  Defektors deliver a blast of punk energy with “Not the One”; O Voids contribute their lurching “Crawling Machine”; hot off their Hozac and Mammoth Cave Records 7”, Sharp Ends debuts their best track yet, “Whiteout”, a scorching, noisy post-punk anthem.…
