1993 is the debut and only album by the band Salamander. The album was initially recorded in 1993 but was not officially released until 2019.


Sisters Petra and Rachel Haden (daughters of jazz musician Charlie Haden) met brothers Scott and Sean Wheatley in high school. Tanya Haden, triplet sister of Petra and Rachel, plays cello on the album[1].

The opening track, "Cherry Llama," previously saw release in 1996 on the compilation Closet Pop Freak, issued by Pop.Psycle Records[2].

Press release

Salamander has released their debut album, 1993, originally recorded in 1993, through Bodan Kuma Records. Unmastered, lo-fi versions of songs from the album have been shared for years, so the band felt it was the right time to shine up these classic gems and release them commercially for the first time. One song in particular included on this album is "Cherry Llama," which received airplay on KROQ "Locals Only" and Rodney Bingenheimer's show "Little Steven's Underground Garage" on Sirius XM channel 23.[3]
