10 Punk Songs to Jumpstart Your Week (Curated by DS Editor Daron)

Ever wonder what the folks who run Dying Scene have been listening to lately?  We’re going to pretend you said “yes” to that question and feature a curated playlist from a different DS editor each week with the intent of exposing you to some new kickass punk bands. This week we go to Minnesota, the land of 10,000 ways to pass off passive/aggressiveness as “being nice,” with Daron.

Starter Jackets (members of The Copyrights, Hospital Job, Attic Salt) release new album, play “Live From the Rock Room”

The world’s greatest power pop band that gets mistaken for a defunct sports clothing line has released their first LP, “Decisions”. I’ve been waiting for weeks to write about this, as I was granted a preview of the album after I did some awfully humiliating things behind a Casey’s General Store dumpster than involved day-old pizza, half a jar of mayonnaise, and the surrender of what little dignity I had left after I got drunk and gave out my phone number at my last family reunion. But hey, I’m in this because I love music, and I’m willing to give something like fifty-five percent or so to share the things I love.

Starter Jackets follow up their debut EP with even stronger hooks, kinkier synths, more powerier chords and even more powerier pop. Check out the stream of the album and their performance at Live From the Rock Room below to hear for yourself how great these guys are. You can buy a digital copy of the album at bandcamp.

Starter Jackets’ lineup includes Luke McNeill of The Copyrights and Hospital Job, Lanny Durbin of Attic Salt, and Fred Malcom of both Hospital Job and Attic Salt.
