Silver Shadows debut LP and tour, Matt Lamkin (of the Soft Pack) debut solo LP, Stalins of Sound cassette, Volar seven-year anniversary




Hey! Guess what? Tonight's Volar's seven-year anniversary at the Whistle Stop (where I work if anyone wants to come pick a fight) in San Diego. Teach Me will be playing and celebrating the release of their debut 7", and Keepers will be playing as well. Teros Gallery has put together a doozy of an art showcase. Also, WE FINALLY HAVE FUCKING SHIRTS. Only $12 at the store.






Speaking of, that Teach Me 7" is now available on limited red vinyl, 300 copies. Weirdo punk from the main guys behind Beaters and Ale Mania, and also a huge part of the Sess, along with a member of Mrs. Magician and Lowlands. Stream/DL/order $6 vinyl!





Also out now, the debut LP by Irish power-pop trio Oh Boland, Spilt Milk. Stream/DL/order limited white vinyl!



We're excited to announce two debut LPs. The first is by Matt Lamkin, frontman for the Soft Pack. His solo debut, Where I'm Matt, is available now to stream and download, with vinyl due mid-December.










The second perfect record we're releasing mid-December is by Bay Area dark shoegaze/post-punk act Silver Shadows. They're hitting the road tonight for tour, so have a listen to a couple of tracks/preorder the LP and check out their dates below.

We had a lot of last minute decorations to add, and the staff was eager and willing to help. The food was amazing. The NYC venues have extremely unique and tasty food. Also this place has great views and beautiful big rooms.

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.

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.
