    Week 19: The Oil Pans “Creepy Tales” | Volcom Cyber Singles Club

    Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 19: The Oil Pans - "Creepy Tales"   Grab the free download Born from the toxic runoff of Disneyland, The Oil Pans bring their foggy vibes to the Volcom studio for their first-ever recording of "Creepy Tales." "The concept behind The Oil Pans is that we're the sludge that collects in the oil,” says vocalist Squelch. "We're the discarded filth that slips through the cracks and stains the countless driveways and roadways. We're that imprint that never goes away." The Oil Pans formed in 2001. "We came together with the idea of playing bluesy, melancholic punk rock," says Squelch. Joining the frontman is guitarist Daniel Bush, bassist Marquies Kharinval, drummer Damian "Chocolate" Edwards, and organist Tony Santos. Together, these musicians have displayed a rigorous focus on live performance. "We have always been a theatrical band," explains Squelch. "Our hope is that the audience captures our presence with the absurd antics and leaves the venue with unanswered questions that may be fulfilled in times of turmoil and strife. Life is theatrics. We all play roles. The Oil Pans tend to portray the sadistic nature of everyday life through dense fog and shadow play." The relationship between Burger Records and The Oil Pans goes back to the mid-to-late '90s when Lee from Burger would hang out with the Four Letter Words. The Four Letter Words would play with The Noise which was Lee and Sean's band. Later, they would form The Make Out Party with Dan, and Burger would release their 1st 7-inch back in the primal stages of the record label. The lineage runs deeps between The Oil Pans and Burger Records. The Oil Pans conjure timeless dread on this song. "'Creepy Tales' is about war stories," Squelch tells us. "It's the way that men talk to each other with their over-inflated egos and far-fetched stories. It's the pounding of the chest, look-at-me scenario that rifles through the song." With this initial recording under their belts, The Oil Pans are primed for more recordings. According to Squelch, "The Oil Pans definitely want to go back into the recording studio with the intentions of releasing an EP or even a full-length LP."

    Week 18: Fatal Jamz "Heavenly Choir" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club

    Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 18: Fatal Jamz - "Heavenly Choir"   Grab the free download Fatal Jamz formed during a busy summer for singer Marion Belle. "I formed the project in 2013 in the middle of recording a record with Dan Horne (The Lilys + Beachwood Sparks) and a bunch of my favorite L.A. players," he says. "I had a group going at the time called Bowery Beasts and this record we were recording was going to be our second full length. It came out as something very different and it went from there into Fatal Jamz." The newly christened Fatal Jamz received some positive attention early on with a single. "I started producing singles with my friend Nic and we dropped 'Rookie' on the bandcamp and it immediately got a lot of love online," recounts Marion. "From that one song we got asked to tour with Sky Ferreira and Smith Westerns." Burger Records and Gnar Tapes released the debut Fatal Jamz album, Vol. 1 in 2013. "I met Sean and Lee initially through my friends at Gnar and The Memories," recalled Marion. "They have been very supportive, setting up shows and DJ nights. They are really the first people to give the music a platform which I've always appreciated. It's been easy and cool to be apart of what Burger's been doing, which is obviously historic." "Heavenly Choir" is the first new Fatal Jamz song since releasing Coverboy in 2016 on Lollipop Records. If you are picking up a dark romantic vibe, you aren't misled. "In my songs I'm the lord of the dark garden of dreams," explains Marion. "I live for romance and the danger of love." "Heavenly Choir" may in fact signal the direction for future Fatal Jamz. "I wanted to write something very blood, red and gothic," says Marion. "It ended up being a new kind of anthem for us and maybe unlocking a new direction for the next record."

    Week 17: Part Time "Que Vida" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club

    Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 17: Part Time - "Que Vida"   Grab the free download Part Time was created by the band's mastermind, David Speck, in 2009. Already a veteran of bands in Austin and Oakland, David explains that Part Time was formed "simply by the grace of its substance." Since then, Part Time has released a string of full-length albums on several different labels starting with the 2009 self-titled release on Voice Academy Records, followed by two albums for Mexican Summer, What Would You Say? and PDA. They made their Burger Records debut in 2014 with Late Night with David Loca followed by Return To Cherry on Mother of Pearl. The last Part Time album, Virgos Maze, was released by Burger in 2015. "Burger Records is great," says David. "They believe in artists' dreams, which in turn realizes their own." Over the years, Part Time has seen several lineup changes. The "Regular Part Time Joes," as David describes it, "these days include: guitarist and keyboardist Billy Trujillo, bass barbarian Tony Leal, and our dear friend, the original atomic blonde on vocals, Kristin Caballero." Together, this group brings us a unique take on a '60s classic. As David puts it, "simply a silly punky / new wave cover of a song by Arthur Lee's 'Love' off of the Da Capo album.""

    Week 16: Robber "Monster in the Cabinet" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club

    Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 16: RØBBER - "Monster in the Cabinet"   Grab the free download RØBBER was formed in November of 2016 by three friends from Mission Viejo, CA. David Sheets plays the bass and sings back up, Max Kulmer plays the drums, and Chris Devine plays guitar and sings. “David and I have lived on the same street for like half our lives,” says Chris. “Max and David have been friends forever. Max and I also played in a band together and that's how we met.” RØBBER is conceptually mysterious. For example, you won’t find them on social media. “We don’t have social media because we don't really see the need to,” says Chris, who also puts in time as bassist for The Side Eyes. They often perform in disguise wearing ski masks. “Playing in a mask is fun, but really sucks sometimes… really hot and sweaty,” explains Chris. Monster in the Cabinet comes from the same sessions that produced the self-released Live at Volcom EP. “Our very good friend, Mr. Sunday helped us put it out ourselves,” says Chris. “It’s nice to do it ourselves because we kind of have control of everything.” The song itself reflects our current times. “Monster in the Cabinet is about our beliefs of the current POTUS and the rest of the regime,” explains Chris. RØBBER plans to record and release a 7” soon to complete the Live at Volcom EP. “We put out CDs and cassettes, but need to get more,” adds Chris.

Week 15: Easy Love "The Echo" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 15: Easy Love - "The Echo"   Grab the free download Justine Brown was already known as the great drummer and vocalist in her sister Chelsea's band, Summer Twins, when she formed Easy Love. "I started Easy Love about two years ago when I started writing my own songs," says Justine. "Now I have a live band and I recorded an album and released it with Burger." Justine played all the instruments on Easy Love's self-titled debut album that was released in February. Justine's relationship with Burger Records goes back practically to the beginning. "We used to play with Sean and Lee's band, Thee Makeout Party," explains Justine. "It was before they had the record store, so a long time ago." The Burger Records store opened in October 2009. Burger co-founder Lee Rikard remembers, "Justine is one of my favorite people. We've known her since her teenage days in the Riverside girl garage band The Scandells! We've also been in love with the Summer Twins since their inception and have released their amazing catalog on LP, CD, 7" vinyl and cassette." Since the early days, Justine has found her place in the Burger universe and has travelled along on tours like the Burger Caravan, playing shows that featured eclectic lineups. "That's what I like about Burger, the variety of music… people from all over," she says. "We had to pay our dues and work our way up and it eventually lead to playing the Burgerama stage… which was, like, hundreds of people. It was kind of scary." Lee adds, "Justine is always creating, constantly evolving, growling ever so lovely." Easy Love is admittedly a little less rambunctious than some of their Burger label mates. "We definitely have a different kind of style," says Justine. "I feel like we're not as super punk and, like, crazy… as people and as musicians… a little bit more mellow, but we definitely can rock out!"

Week 14: Distractor "Six Foot Moon" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 14: Distractor - "Six Foot Moon"   Grab the free download Somewhere around mid-to-late 2014, in vocalist and trumpeter Glen's garage, keyboardist Will Sipos came up with a catchy melody on one of his tiny toy synths leftover from the 80s. Glen began singing along and unexpectedly, this turned into the first Distractor song. Glen came up with the band name and that's how the band begun. The idea was to play fun and simple music to distract from the harsh realities of life. Colin Mckibbin was usually there in the garage with them and joined Distractor on the ukulele. Soon after, Ronnie Dunmore on guitar and Sean Campos on bass joined the band. "We played our first legitimate show at La Cave in Costa Mesa to a sold-out crowd," remembers Ronnie. "Glen would play miniature blaring trumpet solos in between verses, while we played along reading our handwritten sheet music. It was a lot of fun." Distractor's first album Devotion was released in March 2015 and currently preparing the release of the Six Foot Moon EP, which was recorded at Volcom Studio. "We have the second album mixed and ready to be mastered, so just waiting on plans for the release on that," says Ronnie. "We’re very excited!" Distractor were quickly dealing with a tragedy that almost ended the band. "Right when we found clear direction and reasoning for what we wanted to be as a band, we lost our captain," explains Ronnie. Glen passed away in October 2015 after only a year of guiding the ship. "Glen's approach to music was not normal. He didn't really want to start a band in the first place, so the ideas and emotions he brought to the table were very funny and inspiring." Ronnie describes the loss as "a period of time when we felt lost.. we had to somehow fill his shoes without actually putting them on." Guitarist and vocalist Levi Prairie joined the band to help with vocals and added new flavor to the music. This new lineup initially performed under a different name. "We needed to keep playing music together and we knew it wasn't in the form of Distractor," he explains. "We let Distractor rest in the garage for a year and brought a new name, Blue Flowers, out to shows. At the time, we thought we may never play as Distractor again until one day we decided to test this new musical bond we developed with Levi by starting from scratch and writing all new material. We were even able to include some of Glen's lyrics and unfinished songs. Now that we were all contributing, it started to feel like Distractor again and we feel that Glen would be proud to see us playing these new songs. So here we are." Since falling into the Burger Records fold, Distractor has embraced the label ethos and made the most of the relationship. "It's been great working with Burger. We are honored that they have taken us under their wing," says Will. "They set us up with some shows at SXSW which was fun. We like being able to share our music with all the Burger fans and also playing alongside some whacky and talented bands. Burger has become something bigger than just a record label and we're all lucky to have this type of thing to enjoy and contribute to in our lives." "Distractor is one of our favorite bands," says Burger Records' Sean Bohrman. "It's like Devo and Talking Heads in outer space. When we first met Distractor we booked them for one of our local shows, but found out that the lead singer, Glen Christiansen, had passed away unexpectedly at the age of 25. Distractor carries on in memory of Glen and continues to blow minds and spread the love of the Spaceman. The story of Distractor is one too long to tell in this brief blurb, so please watch this short doc on one of our favorite bands!"

Week 13: Dabble "Free Time" | Volcom Cyber Singles Club
Burger Records x Volcom present Cyber Singles Club, features music from the newest breed of Burger Records stars in the making, recorded exclusively at Volcom Studio, and will be released for free download & streaming every Monday for 20 weeks beginning April 17th. Week 13: Dabble - "Free Time"   Grab the free download Dabble is a band of friends that have recently relocated to the burgeoning Highland Park neighborhood in Los Angeles. It didn't take long before Burger Records, who seem to have ears everywhere, caught on to their self-described Neu Dream Hip-Pop sound. As it turns out, Dabble was quite familiar with the record label. "I was just 15 years old when I first heard about Burger,"" says guitarist and vocalist Daniel Bonilla. "The instores [at Burger] were the most incredible shows. It was always like, if there was something cool going on in Southern California, Burger was behind it," says bassist and vocalist Danielle Evans. "It’s definitely popular with the all-ages crowd," adds Daniel. "Everybody knows Burger!" Dabble originally formed in 2014 as an experimental two-piece with Daniel and guitarist/vocalist David von Hegedus, and they released a self-titled debut EP soon after. By the time of EP II, they had filled out the sound by adding Danielle Evans, Jordan Fielder on drums, and Austin Pacheco on synths. With a full band in place, Dabble seems to be surprising audiences and making new fans wherever they go. "Dabble came out of nowhere for me," says Burger Records' Sean Bohrman. "I saw them play at the Burger Bowl festival a few years ago and I was blown away. Lee had booked them on the show so I had never seen them. I was listening to their set and they covered The Cranberries' "Dreams" and I was hooked. Afterward, we rereleased their first EP cassette on Burger and did a few more shows before they started self-recording their debut album which is coming out soon [it's out now, it's called Touch, listen on Dabble's bandcamp] and it's amazing! Good people, great band - can't ask for more than that!" The good vibes are mutual as we await the release of their LP Touch. "They [Burger] are just real music lovers and down to earth people," says Daniel. "It's rare to find that sometimes, and we appreciate it," Danielle explains. "We're Burger newbs, but they've been really nice to us," says Daniel.

Week 12: Flying Hair - "Tantrum"   Grab the free download Since 2014 Flying Hair has been smashing together different influences and steadily crafting their own unique sound. The story starts with two friends jamming in Los Angeles. "Bobby (Martin, bass and vocals) and Kurt (Mangum, guitar) had been jamming for fun with Kurt," says drummer Matthew Clark. "They asked if I wanted to jam." With the additioin of Matthew, Bobby switched instruments and picked up the bass. "We had an immediate chemistry and pretty quickly wrote a bunch of songs. We also spent a lot of time improvising and finding our sound." Bryan Fox joined Flying Hair on synths in 2015. "He has added a lot to the sound," says Clark. Their first release, Haunted Hangout II, dropped in April 2015 on Clarks's own Casual Acid Tea label, first as a cassette and later on vinyl. In the meantime, the band has been fast at work on a second album titled Night Fight. Matthew has spent some time at Volcom Studio previously. "I've recorded twice before at the Volcom Studio, first for the Premonition 13 debut 7" and later for the Premonition 13 full length sessions which also produced the material for the Earthless/Radio Moscow split," explains Matthew. "Brian [Mckinley, engineer at Volcom Studio] is super adept at getting good sounds quickly and creating a vibe for creativity and experimentation." This vibe worked for their Cyber Singles session. "Recording this session with Flying Hair, I was pleased, but not surprised, at how quickly we got good sounds and knocked the session out," he continues, "Plus we had fun with the green screen video aspect of that session." To describe Tantrum, Matthew says, "This song is about losing your cool. Bobby wrote the words and we all wrote the music together. It has kind of a space punk feel." You may have already heard this song in Volcom surf videos. "We love all the support we have gotten from Volcom and we love seeing our jams soundtracking surf videos," says Clark.

Week 11: Cowgirl Clue - "Utopia"   Grab the free download Ashley Calhoun, aka Wu-Wu, aka Cowgirl Clue, made her Burger debut with one of the rarest and most sought-after Burger Records releases, the limited-edition Halloween split with The Garden from 2014. Since then she's expanded her excellent experimental pop sound into this wild one-woman project and released her debut EP, Limelite, on Burger Records cassette. Cowgirl Clue first experienced the Burger Records phenomenon from her hometown of Austin, Texas during SXSW. "My cousin owns a venue there called Hotel Vegas. They host Burgermania every year, so I started going and getting to know them," say Ashley. "Then I moved to Orange County and I happened to live down the street from them, so I kept seeing them at shows." Life in Orange County soon provided a new perspective into Burger's operations and influence. "It's just been growing for years. It's very developed now and there's an aesthetic that's prominent," she explains, "I think my perception of Burger Records changed as it grew." Like a lot of people on the scene, Burgerama was at the center of this experiential perception. "It’s all ages, so there are tons of kids going crazy throwing flips off the stage. I think that whoever is experiencing that for this time period is pretty lucky. Unlike shows I went to when I was younger, going to punk shows, I see so many women and so many girls and people of all ages. It gives people an opportunity to connect with like-minded creative, young individuals... just the community. It's really cool to see people come together for music and art." We are happy to premiere Cowgirl Clue’s latest song, "Utopia", an inspiring tune about keeping your passion true. "As far as Utopia goes, I wrote it to connect my life to the industry," she notes, "The lyrics are implying that money may or may not buy happiness, but in the end, the industry is expensive and tries to get the best of you and your utopia. I feel it's important to stay true to yourself in life and you can be who you want to be. That's why I wrote Utopia ;)."
