Hello Fans of Good Music:
Quite a bit going on here at Hidden Volume in December. First up, two HUGE releases from the HiVo Hit Factory with singles by Cleveland's Whiskey Daredevils and New Jersey mods The Insomniacs. Both bands' histories go way back and have graced labels from Estrus Records to Screaming Apple to Sympathy for the Record Industry. And these two will have you reaching for your wallet, er, scrambling for your turntable because they straight up RULE. Just head over to hiddenvolume.com if you don't believe us.
Secondly, we have new stickers, a killer new T-shirt and you should be the first to know it's confirmed we will be doing singles by Philly organ-pumpers The GTVs and Toronto slash-n-burn garagepunks, Pow Wows. Not only that but stay tuned for singles by Japanese fuzz monsters The Routes, mysterious Vox punishers The Noble Krell and a split from The Improbables and The Stents (first release since 2013). Plus a ton of other records we can't even wrap our brains around right now.
XMAS: we will be shipping out records up until the end of the year but if you are looking to get something by Xmas (domestic orders only) you will need to get your order in by DEC 16 to be safe. No exceptions.
And yes, we will have a big year-end wrap up and (hopefully) all-inclusive thank you list coming soon. I'm sure you can hardly wait.
Dig the now sound of NOW!
"Don't Talk to Connie" b/w "Please Stop Hitting Connie"First 250 on gold wax, first 50 ship with exclusive Connie Coozie.
Two country punk infused tunes from Cleveland's demented roots rockers, The Whiskey Daredevils. The raucous A-side sprung from an overheard conversation at a dive bar in central Ohio and the slow burning flip side has been called "the worst possible song title."—by the band itself. Features two ex-Cowslingers and a guy who sometimes plays in reformed proto-punks Rocket From The Tombs.

The return of this legendary NJ mod power pop trio. Two sides of their sound are represented with "Today's The Way" bringing the sweet Big Star/Teenage Fanclub-esque pop while "Mr. Yesterday" hits with the garage rock (and tremolo) power they are known for. After tons of records on labels like Estrus and Screaming Apple, they aren't showing any signs of slowing down.
