DEALS/STEALS: Volar Bay Area 6-record set and LA 5-record set, collected Beaters/Ale Mania/Teach Me releases, Soft Riot 2xLP for $10

Hey, look, we're back and it hasn't even been two weeks. A quick update to let everyone know about some big deals and steals we've set up.

Beaters and Ale Mania were the first two bands "signed" to Volar back when we decided to try this thing out in early 2009. Both projects were born out of the demise of the spectacular The Sess, for our the best band of their time in San Diego. Beaters is Jeremy Rojas taking care of all of the writing and vocals and most of the instrumentation, with Andrew Montoya recording and drumming. In Ale Mania, Montoya is up front, writing all songs and playing all instruments, with Rojas lending vocal and guitar duties when needed. A few months after the Sess announced they were disbanding, the first Beaters and Ale Mania tracks surfaced on Myspace, and within a couple of weeks, the idea for Volar first came about, and Rojas and Montoya were the first two artists we approached, along with Ratas del Vaticano and Fresh and Onlys. Within the year, all four of those artists saw releases on Volar, with Ale Mania and Beaters contributing to the 6x2x12" USA/Canada post-punk comp. Eventually both those bands saw the release of their debut LPs, and later Beaters' "Jester" 7" as well. Now both Rojas and Montoya are in Teach Me, whose debut 7" we released last year, and who are prepping their debut LP for Volar. We were digging out our archives and uncovered some very limited test presses of the Beaters and Ale Mania LPs and "Jester" 7", and now you can those, as well as Ale Mania's first 7" "Lustful Fistful" and Teach Me's "Collector" 7" on limited color vinyl for only $30 at our store, limited to 10 copies.

Volar LA is a five-record set with limited color vinyl by Flat Worms, Tracy Bryant, Cosmonauts, Susan, and the split Part Time / Drinking Flowers 7".

Volar Bay Area collects six great records by Bay Area artists Shannon and the Clams, Silver Shadows, Fine Steps, Lenz, Uzi Rash, and Window Twins into one $25 set.

We've also compiled the first two stellar albums by UK-based one-man dystopian-synth project 
Soft Riot into one $10 batch.

Tiger High's debut vinyl releases, their Inside the Acid Coven LP and "Christine" 7", are available together for only $5.

THAT'S IT BE SAFE OUT THERE

We highlight new music from female-fronted bands every Monday. This week, we're excited to feature the first music video off Susan's debut record.

Guitarist Jessica Owen, bassist Beth Borwell, and drummer Katie Fern make up the trio that is Susan. Their fuzzed-out power pop vibes are all over their first album, Never Enough, which came out April 30 on Volar Records. The Los Angeles-based band got together in 2012 and get into their feelings with songs about making their lives their own—on their own terms. Full of layered harmonies, jangly guitar and mell…
