RE-PRESSES/TOURS: Destruction Unit, Audacity, Shannon and the Clams, Digital Leather, Lenguas Largas, Cosmonauts

Alrighty, it's been a while, so here's a massive update on all the re-presses and new titles in hand and shipping soon (if not already), as well as tour info when applicable.

First up, the limited clear at vinyl re-pressing of Destruction Unit's Sonoran LP, their 2011 release on Volar. Their first after Ryan Rousseau's reforming of the project after the passing of his friend and D. Unit cofounder, Jay Reatard, in which Rousseau began taking the project away from its synth-punk beginnings into more psych/space/krautrock territory. In the time since, the band has toured with the likes of the Men, Merchandise, and more, and released LPs earlier this year on Jolly Dream and more recently on friends-of-the-label Sacred Bones, which lead the band to some rather noteworthy acclaim by the likes of NME, Vice, and Rolling Stone. A lot of these are spoken for already, but we've still got a good chunk on hand. Stream the LP and order from our webstore and Bandcamp below.

As of this week, Audacity begins a two-month stretch on the road in support of their new Finders Keepers LP on Suicide Squeeze. We've still got plenty of limited color copies on hand of their split 7" with Big Eyes, and recently re-pressed their 2010 release on Volar, the "Ears and Eyes" 7" EP, produced by Rob Barbato of Darker My Love/La Sera/Cass McCombs and artwork by Tim Presley of Darker My Love/White Fence. Stream and order both below.

 The great Cosmonauts just got back home a few days ago after months touring the US and Europe. We've still got limited red vinyl on hand for the "Wear Your Hair Like a Weapon"/"Sweet Talk" 7". Both tracks were re-recorded for their recent Persona non Grata LP on Burger Records, but these are the earlier, rougher, dare-we-say tougher, versions. Stream and order the 7" below.

Things have been fairly quiet for both Lenguas Largas and Digital Leather, longtime friends of each other. (LL main man Isaac Reyes, who just returned from a Euro tour with the Resonars, spent years playing live with DL as well.) We just re-pressed both LL's Ese Culito one-sided 12" and DL's Infinite Sun 12" on limited clear vinyl. Stream and order both below.

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

Recent Volar Press

So we've had some very kind folks cover some of our recent and upcoming releases in the past weeks, and we thought we'd take the chance to collect those here in one place.

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)

Teenage Burritos is a band whose name confuses the hell out of me. Is it referring to teenagers who eat burritos or the types of burritos that teenagers prefer to eat …

Debut LP and tour by Irish trio Oh Boland and debut 7" by Teach Me, solo LP by Matt Lamkin (Soft Pack)

STREAM/ORDER/DL the debut limited clear LP Spilt Milk by  Irish punk-slop-power-pop trio Oh Boland
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…
