After months of working on these records, they're both finally just about to ready to drop, so we've got full streams of both as well as some shows to look forward to.
Stream and order limited color vinyl of Susan - Never Enough LP.
The debut album by Los Angeles trio Susan, ‘Never Enough’ follows up their ‘Just Call It’ EP released in Sept. 2014 (also on Volar Records). Produced and recorded by Scott Cornish and Drew Fischer, ‘Never Enough’ covers themes of personal independence and emotional confusion. Layered vocal harmonies, reverb-washed pop hooks, and a touch of apathy convey hesitation and personal conviction while making the point that even though they don't know where they are going, they are sure they will figure it out. Even if they have to rip it up and start all over again.

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, a moment of reflection about the Oakland fires. I've been in my own state of shock and grief and am slowly getting back to focusing on this other stuff here. My thoughts go out to everyone involved. I had friends who were there that night and made it out safely; I had quite a few more who were close to going and decided not to. The first show I ever attended in the Bay was at a warehouse (the French Fry Factory), and the first show I ever played there was at the Ghost Town Gallery. I have more musical ties to friends in the Bay and Oakland specifically than anywhere else outside of where I live, and the creative freedom and resourcefulness of the music and arts community there is the richest that I know of in the country. There have been many thoughtful posts and articles regarding that scene in particular, the culture at large, and the nature of warehouse spaces like Ghost Ship.
