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.
