DS Staff Picks – Bizarro Dustin’s Top Albums of 2017

2017 was not a great year for me. Between looming mental health issues, broken hearts (both breaking someone else’s and having mine torn), and a handful of failed attempts at restarting my life, I don’t even have to mention the state of the world to get into how bleak things were… I even stopped regularly contributing to Dying Scene this year! But I still got invited to share my 10 favorite records and since music is one of the things that helped me get through this year, here I am.

In years past I’ve gone all out when sharing my favorite albums: bringing attention to those that might not have gotten as much notice as the heavy hitting names in the scene, or giving each album a number one spot in their own category. This year I’m keeping it simple: my 10 favorite albums by artists that we cover at Dying Scene. You can check it out below.

Mikey Erg and Anika Pyle (ex-Chumped) have announced a split EP that will be released on September 9, 2016 through Anchorless Records.

It will feature two songs by each artist written after the agreement was made, in raw demo form.
