Chicago’s Typesetter feels made for comparison with many other bands. The Gaslight Anthem, Nightmares For A Week and Against Me! – to name a few. They follow a flushed narrative with a perpetually mature rock n’ roll sound that throws back to one record and one band most of all though. That’s Restorations’ LP2. If Restorations were more punk you’d have these dudes. The dearth of whoa-ohs and the huge, expansive guitar-driven atmosphere give so much credence to this statement which makes Wild’s End one of the most fun records of the year.
“So What’s Your Future” and “Sunday’s Best” best sum up the Restorations comparison. What strikes home even more is Typesetter feels more free and unrestrained than most bands I mentioned above. The solo-laden and liberal jams identify this a lot. They mix it up so well too. Things feel grungier as well on “Settling” but what really works is that amid the band’s thick, crunchy and curse-worded disposition, there’s so much melody and harmony in a versatile novel which no doubt helps paint Chicago the same way Joe Loudon brings Philly to life.
“Nietzsche in Florida” is one of the slower jams and as much as it feels ripped from the ’90s, it still connects as a modern post-rock jam which establishes why Typesetter shouldn’t be ignored. This time around, they’re more indie-punk and more loose-lipped to help map a musical drive that really knows no bounds. At times, some tracks meander or feel to long and worn but overall, Wild’s End has a certain allure. It’s one of those records that encapsulates life and will trap you. I chalk most of this down to the cutting, distorted guitars but ultimately, their varied sound makes one attribute so hard to pin down. All-round, Wild’s End delivers and I can see Typesetter definitely earning a big spot on many 2014 wow-lists.

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.
Tonight’s cover comes from the post-Hot Water Music project, The Draft, and their cover of The Replacements tune “Little Mascara”. The original version appeared on The Replacements 1984 album Tim, while The Draft recorded their cover for the 2006 compilation album We’ll Inherit the Earth: A Tribute to the Replacements.
You can listen to both versions of “Little Mascara” below.

To call German punk act Hell & Back a “new” band would not really be an accurate description seeing as how they’ve been around since at least 2011 (an assumption based on both their Facebook page and their appropriately titled “2011 demo”). However, we here at DyingScene just came across them and we think it’s only fair to share them with you, too. If you like your punk rock melodic and easy to skate around to (and let’s not kid anyone here, of course you like that), you might want to give Hell & Back a listen.
They released their debut album, Heartattack, this past March and are streaming the whole thing online. In the chance that you’re pressed for time (we know you’re not, but we’ll let it slide), the band has also released a karaoke-styled music video for their song “Reverse Psychology”, which comes off Heartattack.
You can find both the album and the music video below.
