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’re giving you a glimpse in the twisted mind of DS’ own pet Belgian NobodyLikesGreg.
If FEST is basically like a second Christmas to you and you think PBR serves well as breakfast, lunch AND dinner, you should probably head down below and give his playlist a spin.
1. Camp Cope – “The Opener”
I put down a bet years ago for pretty much all my money (the full 20 bucks) that Georgia Maq just can’t write a bad song. Still winning by a landslide.
2. Jeff Rosenstock – “Yr Throat”
Jeff Rosenstock is probably the only artist that gets me to do the obvious clapping parts in a song even when I’m not at a gig.
3. Spanish Love Songs – “Joana, In Five Acts”
Spanish Love Songs’ new full length ‘Schmaltz’ is the best punk rock record I’ve heard in ages. Can’t wait until everyone gets to hear it so they can all agree with me.
4. The Hard Aches – “Glad That You’re Gone”
One of the best pop punk bands in the world right now. It’s time everyone, and not just Australia, starts to realize this.
5. Heart Attack Man – “100 mg (Millenial)”
Already released an amazing album last year but just recently discovered them thanks to that great split with McCafferty. On repeat, non-stop.
6. Prince Daddy & the Hyena – “I Thought You Didn’t Even Like Leaving”
I’m just a sucker for Ninja Turtles references.
7. The Homeless Gospel Choir – “Depression”
Who needs friends when you have seasonal depression? Basically the words I’ve been living my life by the last couple of years.
8. Ducking Punches – “Smoking Spot”
Everything sounds so much better with a British accent. Think I should pick up smoking?
9. Happy Accidents – “Wait It Out”
Another personal favourite from the Island. 2018 is going to be a big year for UK DIY punk with Doe and Muncie Girls also fresh out of the studio.
10. Tiny Moving Parts – “Caution”
Best shredders in the game. Their last record is, once again, incredible.
