DS Staff Picks – Ben’s Top Ten Albums of 2015

DS Interview: Chris Farren (Fake Problems/ Antarctigo Vespucci) on new Fake Problems material, DIY recording, and being a punk celeb

Chris Farren is….well where to begin? The Fake Problems frontman has stepped out from behind the full band setting, such as many punk musicians have before him, and created quite a name for himself as a solo-artist by doing so. Farren’s latest EP “Where U Are” is a dreamy, synth-pop masterpiece that pulls from his more punk background. I had the chance to chat with him about a new Fake Problems record, DIY recording, and the hardships of being a punk rock celebrity at the Philadelphia stop of his tour alongside Dave Hause and Rocky Votolato. You can read the full interview below.

Album Review: Antarctigo Vespucci – “Leavin’ La Vida Loca”

Is there anything better when two best friends make music together? It’s hard to argue against that in the case of Jeff Rosenstock and Chris Farren and their musical ode to their friendship, Antarctigo Vespucci. The duo dropped a pair of EPs in 2014 that complimented each other well, showcasing some seriously infectious power pop. Now the two have released their debut album, Leavin’ La Vida Loca, a less explosive venture, and one that explores the other side of the coin that is Antarctigo Vespucci.

The title and artwork spell out everything you need to know: Leavin’ La Vida Loca isn’t an action-packed popcorn blockbuster. This is a lazy, chill summertime album, finding the joys in taking it easy. It’s probably best enjoyed while in the comfort of an air conditioned apartment, though in a pinch having open windows with a breeze is an acceptable substitution. The guys are still interested in writing powerful pop jams however Leavin’ La Vida Loca is more interested in dreamy guitars; The energy and hooks are in place, for sure, but they’re subdued in comparison to what came before.

At only 25 minutes, Leavin’ La Vida Loca is still a rush, even with its beach-ier (is that a real way to describe music now?) vibes. Farren and Rosenstock could have easily churned out 10 variations of “I’m Giving Up on U2” or “I Drew You Once in Art Class” and called it a day, but instead they took it one step further. These two are masters at melding highly catching songs with a laid-back attitude, and Antarctigo Vespucci is a testament to that. We should consider ourselves lucky that they met each other.

DS Staff Picks – Bizarro Dustin’s Top 10 albums of 2014

I’m just going to come out and say it: my favorite album of 2014 was Against Me!’s Transgender Dysphoria Blues, hands down. It’s not even a competition. I also really enjoyed Christmas Island, Famous Graves, Report, 10 Years of Your Dumb Bullshit, Get Hurt, War Psalms, Metropole, Die On Stage, Rented World and PUP*. In roughly that order.

But you know what? There’s a good chance that you’re already familiar with all of those albums. Hell, some of them are probably even your favorite albums of the year. While they’re all worthy of being recognized as some of my favorite albums of the year, it’s boring on my part as a part of the press to tell you about music you’ve already heard, don’t you think?

In the spirit of trying to use my position here at Dying Scene to promote up-and-coming bands, I have devoted my top 10 to albums that may have flown under your radar. You still might recognize a couple of the names here (hell, some have made it as far as to get nods by the likes of Spin or Robert Christgau), but overall these are lesser known bands working their asses off to make it, or at least whatever the 2014 equivalent of “making it” is, and deserve to spend some time in the limelight.

That’s enough blabbering. You can check out my favorite records of 2014 below.

*Yeah, yeah. PUP’s self-titled was released in 2013… in Canada. Its worldwide release was April 2014, get over yourself.

DS Staff Picks – Top 10 Albums of 2014 (ben.king)

Hey all! I’m Ben and I write features, review things, and help out with the Dying Scene Podcast. I think this is the year I finally turned in my punk card and just jammed out to good shit. Below is my top 10.

DS Staff Picks – Top 10 Releases of 2014 (Carson Winter)

This was a big year for me. I moved out of my small town, giving credence to all the pop-punk songs about this-towns nationwide, and settled into the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area. Its been a trip, but its been a great one. I find myself able to indulge in the scene I dedicate too much time to and meet a lot of other cool people with the same obsession.

Musically, this year for me was about surprise. Bands I love released mediocre albums, bands I wrote off slapped me in the face with great releases, and a bunch of other bands with fresh cut debuts blew me away and reminded that punk rock is a living, breathing thing. Cells die and flake off, and new ones grow. Circle of life.

The biggest surprise for me though was that the great music this year wasn’t limited to full lengths. So much great music came out in EP format, it made me really think about how we consume our tunes and the artistic intent involved in either format. I came to the conclusion that EP’s are no less valid as art and I shouldn’t even try to do two separate lists. Should we be placing awesome, cohesive releases in the short-form ghetto because they can form a complete sentence in four songs instead of ten? I don’t think so. So, this year I amended the titling to make it an all inclusive celebration of great punk rock releases, no matter the length.

Check out my picks for the top 10 releases of 2014 below.
