STRANGE MUTATIONS BOX SET VOL. 1 : 7"s by Eat Skull, Audacity, Beaters, Far Corners, Stalins of Sound

So after trying to figure this out for years, I ran into a spate of good timing.  Volar will be releasing its first singles-series box set, with five new 7"s available by Eat Skull, Audacity, Beaters, Far Corners, and Stalins of Sound, which will be available in limited-color vinyl for the box set, as well as limited-color for individual purchase as well.  Links to listen/buy are readily available below.



Buy the entire box set for $30 PPD here, in limited-to-the-set colors and specially packaged here, and listen to all five releases below.








Eat Skull--"Where'd You Go" + "Medication Time" b/w "Jefferson Angel" 7" on both limited red and gold vinyl available individually for $6 here.  Their first release since their "Jerusalem Mall" 7" early last year on Woodsist, and preceding their upcoming third LP on Woodsist this winter.





Audacity/Big Eyes--"Bottle It Up" b/w "Half the Time" split 7" available on both red and gold vinyl here, as well as the five-7" Strange Mutations box set here.  Audacity released their "Ears and Eyes" 7" on Volar a while back (order the limited red repress here), and Big Eyes are coming off of their Hard Life LP on Don Giovannia and 7" and are gearing up for their forthcoming LP on Grave Mistake.  Audacity have spent the last year touring as the backing band for King Tuff, and playing plenty of shows on their own.  Listen to "Bottle It Up" below, and check out their tour dates over at Brooklyn Vegan.





Beaters--"Jester" b/w "911=11" 7" limited to 150, mailorder-only red vinyl copies here, or as part of the Strange Mutations box set here.  This San Diego "pre-apocalyptic mutant punk" band's 7" is their first release since their Fishage LP last year on Volar (listen here), and 7"s on Volar and Zoo Music, as well as their US tour with the Soft Pack.  Listen to "Jester" below.





Far Corners--"Sanity Suck" + "Not So Hot Right Now" b/w "Asleep Since the 70s" 7" available on limited color vinyl here, or as part of the Strange Mutations box set here.  Las Cruces hometown heroes, hailing from past bands such as the Turpentine Bros. and the like.  Listen to "Sanity Suck" below, and read an interview with Justin Hubbard of FC over at Delayed Gratification.





Stalins of Sound--"Pool of Piranha" + "Panik" (Metal Urbain cover) b/w "Rapture in Blood" 7" available on limited-color vinyl here, or as part of the Strange Mutations box set here.  San Diego-based drum-machine punk, Spits/Slayer/etc.  Listen to "Pool of Piranha" below.

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.
