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.

One of the joys of running this little label is the opportunity to work with friends and their new projects.  Stalins of Sound began as a side project a few years when core member Hadi wasn't busy in the great San Diego punk band Dissimilars.  His obsession with Slayer, the Spits, and synth-punk all came together, and I'm excited to see him pursuing this.  Look for a tour in late October, including some shows with Ryan Wong's Destruction Unit (who will be releasing a 7" on Volar in the near future).

Flat Worms 7" on Marc Riley's (of the Fall) Best of 2016 BBC 6 show, Oh Boland LP on Pitchfork's Best of 2016, Susan LP on Dirty Laundry TV's Best of 2016, Teach Me 7" on ListenSD's Best of 2016

Happy holidays, all, hope you get through them okay. I know this can be a strange time of year for a number of you, myself included. Happy to be here to share some mighty fine recent news in the land of Volar. Marc Riley, one of the originally songwriters in the Fall, has a BBC 6 show, and just last week discovered the debut 7" by Flat Worms on Volar. He says some very kind words here about the nine-minute mark, played them again the next day, and then included them in his best of 2016 show this past Monday. We're down to the last few of our black vinyl copies. Also this past week, Pitchfork put out its list of

Matt Lamkin of the Soft Pack and Silver Shadows West Coast tour, Teach Me and Keepers live w/ the Spits

First off, a moment of reflection about the Oakland fires. I've been in my own state of shock and grief and am slowly getting back to focusing on this other stuff here. My thoughts go out to everyone involved. I had friends who were there that night and made it out safely; I had quite a few more who were close to going and decided not to. The first show I ever attended in the Bay was at a warehouse (the French Fry Factory), and the first show I ever played there was at the Ghost Town Gallery. I have more musical ties to friends in the Bay and Oakland specifically than anywhere else outside of where I live, and the creative freedom and resourcefulness of the music and arts community there is the richest that I know of in the country. There have been many thoughtful posts and articles regarding that scene in particular, the culture at large, and the nature of warehouse spaces like Ghost Ship. I was asked to do an interview for NBC San Diego and only agreed to help spread that messa…

OUT NOW! Debut LPs by Matt Lamkin (of the Soft Pack), Silver Shadows, Part Time/Drinking Flowers 7", OUT SOON! Tracy Bryant 7"

Well, hi there. A lot's happened since the last time we posted. Really awful shit on a political and cultural level, mostly good stuff on the personal. Either way, things have been really hectic, and the Royal We have been preoccupied. But here we are with some news!

 First up, we have Where I'm Matt, the excellent debut solo LP by my old buddy Matt Lamkin, frontman for the Soft Pack, who went so far as playing Letterman and doing a goofy video with Bob Odenkirk of Mr. Show and Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul and touring a tour and putting out records on Kemado Records and Mexican Summer, among others. The LP features a handful of Lamkin's friends playing various instruments, and retains the hookiness of the Soft Pack while adding a healthy dose of experimental stuff.

Stream the album and pick up limited yellow vinyl, edition of 500, for $12.
 Next up, another great debut, and unfortunately the last, by the very excellent Oakland-based female-harmony led Silver Shadows. I…
