DS Staff Picks: Paul Carr’s Top 10 Albums of 2016

I admit, I’ve  been out of the game a while. I grew up, had kids and musically treaded water for a couple of years. Then in 2016, I found pockets of time to listen to the odd track, then the odd ep and finally I found the time to throw myself fully back into the punk pool. What became clear was that after a couple of years with my finger off the pulse, I had an insatiable desire for the music I love. I was hungrier than ever and 2016 saw plenty of great new music to satisfy my appetite. So below are my picks. They mean more to me than just a list of records, they signify a year of rediscovery.



DS Staff Picks – Hopeless Romantic’s (Meredith) Top 10 Albums of 2016

It seems like just yesterday I was putting together my 2015 list, but alas, here we are again at the end of another year. 2016 was a great year for new albums and it was harder than usual to put together this list, but I guess I shouldn’t complain about too much good music. Check out the soundtrack to my last rollercoaster of a year below.



DS Staff Picks – Carson Winter’s Top 10 Albums of 2016


It’s been a big year for me. I’ve gone to a bunch of shows, I made it out to my first ever Punk Rock Bowling (and finally met Head Honcho Dave), and I got my first pro-paid short story bought up by an indie publisher. 2016 has been alright by me. Now, what do we have in terms of music this year? Well, if there’s anything I learned, it was that I am essentially a boring, dyed-in-the-wool melodic punk dude. I got the beard, the glasses, the flannel; I love the Menzingers and Hot Water Music. Just look at my top three albums this year, I am a predictable beast. But, I think that’s okay. I’ve embraced my own cliches and have realized that if there’s one things I like, it’s throaty vocals and singalong anthems.

With that said though, there were a couple other genres that represented themselves for me this year that I absolutely fell in love with, so maybe those horizons aren’t set in stone quite yet. Maybe 2017 will tell a new story. Click here for my best albums of 2016.



PUP release new music video – “Sleep In The Heat”

Toronto punk group PUP have a new music video out for their track, “Sleep In The Heat.” You can watch said video below.

The new video stars Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard, and will really hit animal lovers right in the feels. The video shows a stray dog going on tour with a younger version of the band, and singer/guitarist Stefan Babcock says the song itself is about his chameleon, who died while the band were writing their latest record. “Losing a friend is something so many of us have had to deal with, which is why I think this video is so powerful,” said Babcock.

The song comes from PUP’s latest full-length, The Dream Is Over, which came out in May via SideOneDummy Records.
