Video Mix for Get Bent!

A few weeks back, I finally put together a little video playlist for the great Get Bent!, compiling a handful of my favorite performances, the sort that I return to at times for a number of reasons.  You can enjoy the playlist below, along with the original info via Get Bent!:



Craig Oliver is the man behind Volar Records. He’s responsible for putting out some stellar records (Fishage, Poisoner, Ese Culito, and Infinite Sun to name a few). We could rattle off the rest of his accomplishments, or you can read for yourself in our interview, “Volar Records Takes Flight,” where he talks about his fascination with film. In response, we asked him to create a guest mix of music videos, whether staged or live, for us to share. Check out our other guest mixes here. Tracklist available after the cut. 

So, I thought about breaking these down song by song, detailing the history behind their own personal importance to me and what not. Instead, I’ll try and keep it short. These are all favorite songs of mine, and just about my favorite performances that I resort back to from time to time, all perfect (to me, at least) encapsulations of these particular artists that happened to be captured on film. Perhaps I’ll extrapolate more later, but for now, here’s a look my own weird gravitation to a few somewhat more disparate acts, some of this going back a number of years. I wish everyone was as good as anyone involved here. --co/volar records

Following a cassette on Burger Records and 7” on Volar Records, Something to Cry About is the debut LP by San Diego kinda punk/kinda pretty quartet Teenage Burritos, a co-release between Burger and Volar (whose owner Craig Oliver was in Christmas Island with Burritos guitarist Brian Carver and drummer Lucy Wehrly). Singer/bassist Kirsten Gundrel and guitarist Kevin Gist round out the band, one that leans in to noisy punk like the lead-off track “Flytrap” and the Black Flag cover “Paralyzed,” to more …

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:

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 …
