Shannon and the Clams/Audacity/the Nerves tribute/Tropical Popsicle records

Happy to finally announce that, amidst plenty of frustration with my pressing plant, the Shannon and the Clams "Gremlins Crawl" b/w "White Rabbit" (Jefferson Airplane cover--stream both tracks below), the limited color repress of Audacity's "Ears and Eyes" 7" EP, the limited color repress of the Nerves tribute LP, and the limited color repress of the Tropical Popsicle's--"Beach With no Footprints" 7", are all finally on their way and will be shipping next week when I get back in town.  Have a listen to everything below, peruse our store at volarrecords.bigcartel.com to purchase the mailorder color copies of some of these titles, and thanks for your patience.

This 7" is part of a three-at-once release along with 1-2-3-4-Go! Records out of SF and Surfin' Ki out of Italy, who will be releasing the "Ozma" b/w "Angel Baby" 7" and "Ozma" b/w "Muppet Babies" 7", respectively.  The last couple of years have proven to be pretty busy following the band's release of a handful of 7"s and their Sleep Talk LP on 1-2-3-4-Go! (you can find all this stuff over at the Clams' website), and with Shannon Clam splitting musical duties between the Clams and Hunx and his Punx and guitarist Cody Blanchard enjoying time with his solo venture, King Lollipop, as well as thrashing it up in Volar labelmates Uzi Rash.  The Clams are also heading out on tour next week, and you can check out those dates, as well as "Gremlins Crawl" and "Ozma" from 1-2-3-4-Go!'s 7" below.  We've got 200 orange vinyl and 200 yellow available for preorder over at our Volar Big Cartel...

Also available is the color repress of Audacity's "Ears and Eyes" 7" EP on red vinyl, limited to 70 copies, mailorder only (order it here!). The band is embarking on a short West Coast tour next month with Nu Sensae, and then a bigger US tour starting in early November with their good friends in Big Eyes.  I'll have some upcoming news regarding the first Volar singles series, a box set that'll be available in the next few months... one of the 7"s will be a split with Audacity and Big Eyes  Dates TBA announced sooner than later...

Also, we've repressed Tropical Popsicle first 7", "Beach With No Footprints" b/w "Always Awake in Shadows" in a limited color format, just in time for their upcoming "Ghost Beacons" 7".
