DS Staff Picks- Gunnar’s Top Ten of 2017

Hey all you punks, here are my top ten albums from this past year. I’m new on the block here at Dying Scene and I’m sure this list is going to make you flustered, and wonder where [insert band name here] is on my list. Regardless, here is some great music that helped me through some tough transitions out of college, the loss of a close friend, and into my new life: you can find it below.



DS staff picks: Steve Kingston’s favourite releases of 2017

I returned to the UK towards the end of last year after spending years in Asia where there was very little punk scene. To make up for the lack of gigs I made it my mission to attend as many as possible this year; and what a bloody years its been. Some excellent shows took place in the diy scene here and there where some great releases. Here are some of my favourites in no particular order. Check them out below.



DS Staff Picks: AnarchoPunk’s Top Ten Albums of 2017

I’m not going to bore you with a bunch of pleasantries because I don’t have time for it, so we’re gonna just hop right into this.  If you wanna know what I’m busy with, check out the Featured Stream section to the right hand section of this page, over there >>> yea, that’s me. Or you could listen to Dying Scene Radio, (The Official Podcast of DyingScene.com) to hear my silky smooth, baritone voice. Or you could go check out out my Instagram page which features pictures from the 125+ sets I shot this year. Damn….I need a break. In between all of that, I also managed to listen to some pretty fantastic albums! Peep my top ten favorites from the year that was, below!



DS Staff Picks: Carson Winter’s Top Albums of 2017

For us list-making, taste-making, coffee-drinking, taco-devouring, unpaid-punk-curators— end of year lists are a time to shine. We spend a lot of time listening to the hottest, freshest tracks and occasionally liking some of them too. 2017 was no exception, and for me actually, I thought it was one of the better years in recent punk history. Old bands I loved released new material, I found new bands I’d never heard, bands I thought I didn’t like released music that I did. It was a varied, interesting, and eclectic year for punk rock. And at the same time: almost too varied, interesting, and eclectic. Unfortunately, being spoiled for choice goes hand in hand with writing articles that shouldn’t take that long to write. Oh well, as said by a million tattoos and a guy named Vonnegut, “So it goes.”

Without further ado, here are my top ten picks for the best punk of 2017.



DS Staff Picks: Jay Stone’s Favorite Albums of 2017

Hey boys and girls, Jay Stone checking in with yet another year-end list. As has been the case every year I’ve done one of these exercises, I put way more than ten albums on my list this year, because honestly, cutting the list at ten leaves out too much awesome music. As you should also know, there’s a lot of awesome music that we don’t cover at Dying Scene, so I put some of that on the list as well. And if you scroll all the way down, there’s also a handy Spotify playlist that’ll keep you fired up for a couple hours. Check it all out below!



DS Staff Picks – Jamie’s Top 10 Albums of 2017

Jamie here, as a relatively new writer on Dying Scene I feel a certain level of responsibility and excitement with giving my first top 10 albums article. Most of you know me as Goldfinger, and if you’ve had the opportunity to catch any of my articles you’ll notice I’ve got an unhealthy love for my home-grown punk rock. Fortunately 2017 was a banger year for Canadianity as we were spoiled with several home-grown Canuck classics. Anyway, enough with the filler. Check below to find out if we can be friends or not.

July’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp

Me Rex

The U.S. members of this team asked Team Europe to take over this month’s feature. We weren’t really listening when they explained to us why, but we vaguely remember something about a big orange Cheeto trying to take away their healthcare, forcing them to move offices into an underground bunker wallpapered with bubble wrap. We didn’t really care until we heard that we can basically do anything we want to this thing. We DO love to shove our more sophisticated European culture down everyone’s throat on every occasion we get. Since Abba and Milli Vanilli weren’t on Bandcamp, we found you five European bands that are. Check ’em all out below!



June’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp

The Von Tramps Fast and Loose

The Von Tramps

While some of you jerks were out having fun at fests, I was chained to a laptop that was chained to a desk that was chained to a bunch of other chains (we really need to clean this place up) in the DyingScene basement with nothing but Bandcamp for company and a bucket of fish heads for sustenance. But despite this hardship, I have scoured the corners of Bandcamp and found six bands from all over the place (all right, maybe more than half are from the midwest, shut up, you can make these decisions when you’ve been chained up with fish heads) which were absolutely the best bands I heard while definitely not on an ether binge or in a fish head-induced fever dream! Please don’t ask how I sneaked in the ether. Uh, anyway, music below!



May’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp

Bad Daddies

We’re sure everyone is still preparing for PRB or one of the many upcoming festivals, so we’re keeping it short this month. For May’s installment of Hidden Gems of Bandcamp, we’ll be focusing on bands out of the San Francisco/Bay Area. The East Bay (and the Bay in general) has been known for pumping out some of the best punk bands for decades now. 924 Gilman St. is the venue where many of these local bands such as Rancid, Operation Ivy, and Green Day have gotten their start and we’re sure many more will follow in their path. So, here’s five Bay Area bands that we think will be showing up on everyone’s radars soon! Check em’ out below.



April’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp

Trivial Dispute

Springtime is here and Festival Season is in full swing! Over the next few weeks, punks of all flavors will be gathering at weekend long events across North America. Vans Warped Tour, Fest, Pouzza, PRB in multiple cities, Riot Fest, and a ton of incredible smaller local festivalss like Fuck You We Rule OK in Oklahoma and It’s Not Dead down in SoCal all kick off in the near future (or have already happened, La Escalera Fest was insane from what we heard!). One of our favorite things about the festivals is seeing some of the lesser known local bands get to play next to some of the heavyweights of our scene. We’re betting some of the acts featured in April’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp will show up on a few of the many lineups this Spring and Summer. So check out all five, fantastic selections, below! Then, if you see them at your local fest, you can tell all of your loser friends that you’ve heard ’em before!



March’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp

Rats in the Wall

We’re keeping our intro short and sweet because we have got some certified rippers to introduce you to in this month’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp. Other than Festival season starting up, there’s not really much to talk about anyway (although the lineups for the club shows for this year’s PRB Vegas are looking rather nice)! Speaking of which, our selections this month may just be the best, all around lineup we’ve ever put together! So, without further delay, check out these six stunning bands, below!



February’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp

With the climate of Nationalism rising across the globe these days, it’s always good to step back, take a deep breath and refocus on the big picture. Remembering that although we may live in different areas of the world and have different cultures and beliefs, there are far more things that we have in common. For us specifically, one of those many things, is music! So, it’s with this in mind, that we forge ahead into February’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp. This month, in the spirit of Globalism and celebration of the diversity of cultures, we’ve chosen to feature bands from all corners of the Planet (ed: it’s round, you moron. there are no corners), ’cause, the only border we reckanize is the tropopause! Check ’em out, below!
