TWO SHOWS THIS SATURDAY, LA/SD

If you're here in town (in San Diego), be sure to catch the Wongs, Becky Lee, and Stalins of Sound at the newly-opened Til-Two Club. The Wongs date all the way back to the early nineties, when former-drummer/current-guitarist Ryan Rousseau was a punk kid in Yuma, AZ, and before he spent time with Jay Reatard in Angry Angles, Reatards and Destruction Unit and fronted Tokyo Electron and Earthmen and Strangers. Look for a Destruction Unit 12" soon on Volar, and be sure to pick up the newly-released Stalins of Sound 7" on Volar at the show.

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

First off, among our slate of upcoming releases, we've got Vol. 2 of the Strange Mutations 7" box set, ft. new records by Lenz, Fine Steps, Cosmonauts, and Teenage Burritos, whose "Danya" 7" you can read about over at Lo-Pie.  Fuzz Drench has a little post about the Cosmonauts 7" here.  More on this set soon enough, we assure you.  (Check out Vol. 1, ft. new 7"s by Eat Skull, Beaters, Audacity/Big Eyes, Stalins of Sound, and Far Corners here)

Formed in 2012, the trio of songwriter Niall Murphy(Guitars, Vocals) Eanna MacDonnchadha (bass) and Simon McDonagh (drums/vocals) came together to form Oh Boland over the course of drunken pub crawls in their small town of Tuam, Ireland.The band eventually recorded a couple of EPs with Brian Kelly of So Cow, and began venturing out into Galway City, leading to involvement with Dublin-based collective Popical Island and their release of the Delphi split LP with fellow Ireland indie-poppers Me and My Dog.
The Delphi recordings brought them together with producer Mark Chester, who makes his own music as Ginnels and plays in No Monster Club. After the band realized they were sitting on a number of songs, they decided to go back in with Chester to record this first full-length, Spilt Milk, over the course of two days over Halloween weekend 2014 in a cottage in one of the most isolated parts o…
