A Week In Punk: This Week’s Biggest Stories Recapped (4/21/14)

Posted by Kat Espinoza on Monday, April 21, 2014 at 3:14 PM (PST)

A WORD FROM OUR HEAD HONCHO

2 Words:  ”The Scutches”.  That’s my best band discovery of the week.  Their new EP “Glasshouse” is bubble-gum chewing, leather jacket wearing, surf riding, pop-punk goodness that reminds me of the poppier side of The Queers.  Definitely worth checking out the Long Island three piece.  If I had discovered it earlier I probably would have put it out on DS Records.  Another standout for me this week was that Boston Marathon tribute song Big D And The Kids Table put out.  Cool song.  Different.  Good cause.

In more behind the scene news, we’ve got a writing position open.  If you’re keen on joining the cause send me an email telling me why you think you’d make a good addition to the team (send to contact@dyingscene.com).

THIS WEEK’S TOP STORIES

Here’s what you missed, what you ignored and what you’re sick of reading about. 

1. Remember Kye Smith? He does those gnarly drum covers of a band’s entire catalog. He’s back this week with Strung Out’s albums.

2. Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl are toying with the idea of a Nirvana reunion that would include new music.

3. Ben King dug some real finds out of the Epitaph Records back catalog.

4. The Dead Kennedys are touring with Reagan Youth. I can already see the obvious age divide in that audience.

5. Black Flag have settle their lawsuit again FLAG. Glad to see that mess is over.

6. Brody Dalle’s new solo album is streaming.

7. Lagwagon, Bane and Authority Zero were added to France’s Xtreme Fest lineup.

8. Here’s a Tsunami Bomb video from waaayyy back in 2004.

9. This week, your DS editors talked about all of the weird and expensive Punk Rock memorabilia they own.

ALBUM REVIEWS

The Menzingers – Rented World

““Rented World” shows The Menzingers taking a leap forward musically, and delivering the same kind of emotional lyrics that we loved on “On The Impossible Past”. Is this album better than OTIP? Maybe. Maybe not. People are inevitably going to try to rank the two and make comparisons and contrasts, but at the end of the day, “Rented World” gives us 12 more great songs by a band who is poised to become one of the biggest in our scene, and that can only be a good thing.”

Among Giants – Back and Forth

“An EP can be judged in a lot of ways. It can keep fans happy in between albums, or it can act as a solid introduction to newcomers. It can provide a hint as to what coming material will sound like, or it can act as a standalone release that gets the same kind of fan recognition as full lengths do. Back and Forth accomplishes a lot of these things: it offers just enough to tide old listeners over until their next full length, while also leaving plenty of space for new fans to want more.”

Western Settings – Western Settings

“They know how to write straight up in the pit punk, but also know their way around a melody. When a band on their debut sign off with a track as good as ”Mostly Dead All Day”, an emotive and upbeat track about letting go and moving on, you can’t help but to look to the future and contemplate that Western Settings debut album.”
