DS Exclusive: Ten Foot Pole premiere new album, “Escalating Quickly”

I know it’s a little last minute, but I figure every once in a while it’s only right to do something nice for those special night walkers in all of our lives. So, here you go, my children of darkness. Ten Foot Pole… a whole, like hour or something before it’s supposed to release officially.

If you didn’t know this album was coming out then you’ve probably been sleep walking through life again. I mean… don’t you get excited about anything? Personally, I’ve been wondering what took this thing so long to hit my inbox. I was almost starting to think that Thousand Islands Records was holding out on me. :p

Escalating Quickly jumps from head-banging to booty-shaking, screams to giggles, and anger to hope. The goal was to push beyond the musical expectations set by our past music, to have fun, and to be honest in a way that helps us feel connected with people. I hope you like these songs as much as I do,” says singer/guitarist, Dennis Jagard. Guest artists who get in the mix include: Dan Palmer (Death By Stereo), Dan Jacobs (Atreyu), Sean Sellers (Good Riddance) and Joe Raposo (Lagwagon).

The new album drops tomorrow on Thousand Island Records with vinyl variants available via Disconnect Disconnect Records(UK), Morning Wood Records (Europe) and Pee Records (Australia). Here is the link for purchaseEscalating Quickly was somewhat of a DIY experiment and the band “seeks patrons willing to subscribe at $1 per month or more, to help fund future recording, and in return offers supporters newsletters and early access to music, podcasts, videos and more.” Click here for more info on becoming a patron… and duh! Stay up and enjoy the new album from Ten Foot Pole below for a non-alcoholic reason to show up to work dark-eyed tomorrow morning. G’night!

DS Exclusive: Give You Nothing stream upcoming self-titled full-length debut

Happy Monday, gang!

We’re pretty stoked to bring you a killer new album today. It’s the self-titled debut release from Santa Cruz’s Give You Nothing. The quintet cut their teeth playing in other bands like Downpresser, Uzi Suicide, At Risk, and No Truce in and around the Santa Cruz area, and formed came together as a sort of skate punk Voltron back in 2016. 

The band holed up at Oakland’s Sharkbite Studio recently, and the result is their kick-ass debut, self-titled full-length. It’s due out this Wednesday, May 1st, via Snubbed Records in the US and Umlaut Records in the UK, but you can check it out below right now!

Short/Fast/Loud: Ground Score – “Old Theories on Society”

I love being surprised. That’s the best part of going out to shows—seeing what your local scene has to offer. Punk rock is one of those ever-growing beasts that depend on the little guy to create, create, create—sometimes they move up and out and become a national touring act, sometimes they don’t. But make no mistake, every band you ever loved was a local band before they blossomed into scene-revered artists.

Portland’s Ground Score surprised me with their songwriting talents. Their album Old Theories on Society is a skate punk loveletter packed with big melodies and rousing lyrics. Look no farther than “We’re Still Here,” an anthemic, earnest rallying cry for all the people who’ve survived in the face of life’s tragedies. You could call it Ground Score’s “Bro Hymn,” if you needed a waterline. Other tracks, like “A Thought of You” are minor and atmospheric, without sacrificing the band’s chugging throwback sound. There’s enough subtle diversity here to make for an engaging listen, but the songwriting—Ground Score’s backbone—is an omnipresent highlight. 

Old Theories on Society is a diamond in the rough, waiting to be discovered by lovers of sunny, skate-ready punk rock with just a hint of lived-in grime.

Check out: “We’re Still Here,” “A Thought of You,” “Lost in the Unknown”

DS Exclusive: Fallen Monuments stream new song, “It Doesn’t Mean a Thing”

Fallen Monuments is a rawkin’ little San Diego punk quartet for fans of Descendents and Strung Out that’ll get you up and moving this happy Tuesday afternoon, or I ain’t the damn Dolly Llama. Gary, Todd, Brandon, and Aaron are four old-timer best buds that whether it be through excretions of hyperintensive melodic leads or the sweet Bill Stevinson-esque bass kick snap tone, apparently secrete punk rock down to their very core. They’ve been making music together since 2016, and released the band’s debut full-length, Distance and Time, in May of last year.

To follow up on that well-received album (available here) Fallen Monuments is releasing a new EP, Experiments, which is set for release on April 2, this year of our lord, and will be again made available on the (previously linked) band’s bandcamp page for digital streaming and purchase.

“It Doesn’t Mean a Thing” is the first single off the EP, as well as the only original, where just for funsies they’ve included a couple of covers: “Overkill” by Men at Work, and “Under the Milky Way” by The Church. Of “It Doesn’t Mean a Thing”, it’s a damn-good song, and has the sounding of playability where you can listen to it on repeat for a while, or at least until you’re bashing your head on the rails and begging for …Men at Work to come on(?) Can you hear the thunder? I for one can’t wait for the rest!

“It Doesn’t Mean a Thing” talks of growing old and falling folly. It almost takes a sarcastic air with the  thematic cant of a more insightful Nelson Muntz. “It’s just so sad that it happened to you. It doesn’t mean a thing.”

I’ve listened to it like twenty times and all I hear is “Ha-Ha,” but you tell me.
