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).

Lenguas Largas 7"

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

Hi there.

Ahem.

Although I've been regularly sending out newsletters, turns out that it's been nearly FOUR MONTHS since I've posted here. I'll try to keep it brief.

FIRST:

Out now: Volar has been incredibly honored to have released the debut LP Fiesta by NYC noise-rock supergroup Ice Balloons, counting amongst their ranks Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio, Sean Kennerly of Samiam, Sean Powell and Dani Miller of Surfbort, and Dan Scinta of Wild Yaks. The band is currently wrapping up their US tour, the album is available on limited teal vinyl, only $12.

Last year, Volar was also lucky enough to release the debut 7" by my friends in LA trio Flat Worms, comprised of Will Ivy (Dream Boys, Wet Illustrated, Will Ivy solo), Tim Hellman (currently Thee Oh Sees, formerly of Ty Segall & Sic Alps), and Justin Sullivan, who spent years in the Babies and then backing his Babies bandmate Kevin …
