Stream Devon Kay And The Solutions (pop-punk) new track “The Great American Runaround”

Devon Kay and The Solutions is a Chicago based pop-punk band fronted by Direct Hit’s Devon Kay and on February 1st they’ll be releasing Yes, I Can’t, their first new album in 6 years via Paper + Plastick.

To keep your interest piqued the band is streaming a fantastic little number from the upcoming release titled “The Great American Runaround” and you can check that sucker out below.



Devon Kay and The Solutions (pop-punk) premiere new video-track, “Old Scent”

Chicago-based pop-punkers led by Devon Kay of Direct Hit, Devon Kay and The Solutions have announced a new album after six long years of dormancy. (Some might call that stability.)

Yes, I Can’t is being released on Vincent Fiorello’s (Less Than Jake) label Paper + Plastick, digitally on February 1st, and the album drops on vinyl April 26th. Pre-orders are sure to go up for grabs soon at the labels website.

A lot has changed with the band that “was born, now is here, and sometimes gets boners” since their last release in 2013. Their bassist left to pursue an actual productive life while Devon toured with Direct Hit! doing the exact opposite, composing songs in his spare time (which was a lot) with The Solutions drummer and long-time friend Ryan Solava over the internet. They threw in a horn section and YesI Can’t was borne, 12 pop-style tracks blending ska, folk, and punk in a progressive medley to the theme of a 20-something coming of age tale, and yes, I imagine the boners are still pretty consistent.

There’s some rawkin’ drums opening up the track we’re premiering, “Old Scent” which is available for streaming below, along with some tour dates and a previously released music video for the band’s title-track, “Yes, I Can’t”. Enjoy. Cheers!!

DS Exclusive: The Contenders (ska, rocksteady) premiere new song, “Double or Nothing”

It’s a good day for ska fans! Time to shine up your dancing shoes, pick your head up, and give tomorrow another whirl… (Today!) with this fresh new Jamaican beat about mulligans coming at you from Athens, Greece.

The Contenders are a soulful rocksteady band, originally conceived four years ago by two friends in Vathis Square, as a side-project. Since that time, their evolution has evinced itself in each new addition of colorful instrumentalists to the roster, providing eclectic melodies down to the jazzy roots. They’ve been picking up a bit of steam since 2017, when the current band line-up cemented itself into form, playing shows, and working with Vincent Fiorello (Less Than Jake) to release the new EP, “Jes Grew” on Paper + Plastick Records, out October 26 on flexi-disc. Order that phonosheet here.

The band came up blending legacies, the likes of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding with the sounds of the rudies. Decidedly coming into their own around 2017, with the current swinging seven-man line-up complementing each song with sexy trombone solos and saxophone arrangements. The Contenders have received a bit of industry love, of late- not to mention the love of the crowds for their intimate and lively performance- and we’ve got the exclusive first-take of their newest single “Double or Nothing” below… right in time for all the ghoulies and Frankenstein-folk to start skanking and mashing down your neighborhood street. I mean… I do it every Tuesday. Enjoy!

DS exclusive: Senior Discount premiere “The Best Revenge”

Senior Discount have been a staple of the RI punk scene for more than a decade now. They have played shows all over New England and have shared the stage with a veritable A-list of punk and ska bands. Which has helped them garner the attention of Paper and Plastick Records, who is releasing their newest album The Best Revenge.

The best thing about The Best Revenge is that it has a little bit of everything. Ranging from punk/pop punk gems to a heart-on-your-sleeve ballad to a jaunty cover of a classic reggae jam to a punked up cover of an 80’s classic.

Check out this stream of honest, emotional, crazy, and fun punk rock below.

Flatfoot 56 Premieres New Video for Folk Version of “Cain”

Veteran Celtic punks, Flatfoot 56 just released an incredible video for their uber-stripped down version of the fan-favorite “Cain” from the new EP The Vancouver Sessions If you’ve heard the original version, which premiered on the epic LP Jungle of the Midwest Sea released back in ’07, you’re probably not even going to recognize this one. It’s far more mellow and has a fantastically folksy, rustic sound to it. When we asked frontman Tobin Bawinkel about the new video, he told us: “(It) was a blast to shoot. We shot it on a Sunday afternoon in about three hours. A whole group of us carried all our gear into a local forest preserve and proceeded to get as dirty as we could. We were a site for all the people walking by as we slapped each other with mud. We loved the way the video turned out. The producer (Jordan Saylor from JLS Collective) did a great job editing it up. We hope you enjoy it as well.” So, check it out below!
