Squalls - Squalls (Remastered Expanded Edition)

Propeller Sound

Propeller Sound Recordings has announced the release of Squalls [Remastered Expanded Edition], an expanded version of the band’s 1984 self-released EP, on November 4, 2022. The 11-track collection follows the recently released Live From the 40 Watt album and includes studio recordings unavailable on vinyl, download or streaming since 1985 alongside never-before-available demos made between 1983-1985.

Hailing from the fertile Athens, Georgia music scene of the early 1980s, Squalls had a unique, danceable sound which mixed equal parts Lovin’ Spoonful, Grateful Dead, and Talking Heads. They were perhaps one of the most underrated early bands out of the scene which also produced bands like B-52s, R.E.M., Pylon, Love Tractor, and Side Effects. Squalls rocked Athens, GA between 1981-89 and toured the South, the Midwest, and East —including shows at iconic New York City clubs CBGB, Danceteria, and Peppermint Lounge. They released an EP, a single and two studio albums in their heyday and two of their songs open and close the soundtrack for Athens, GA: Inside/Out. (continue reading full bio on DISCO)
