Looks like we’ve got a couple repeat-offenders this month, to help us kick off summer (or winter if you live in the bottom-world). You may remember Dim from the best of 2018. Also The Mega Yeah are back. I have a feeling this won’t be the last we see of them, since they dropped a ridiculous THREE brand new releases in May! I suggest you go listen to all of them because none of it sucks. Former Doesn’t Suck all-stars Pencildive also put out a brand new album that didn’t quite make the Top Ten this time, but is definitely unsucky af. 

I hope this summer is a good one. Many parts of the world are slowly starting to resemble normal again. And by normal, I mean a completely disgraceful mess of disgusting human behavior but with indoor dining! 

Here in Vancouver things are progressing slowly. I’ve only had my first vaccination but I’m still looking forward to enjoying the summer and getting out and into the wilderness far more than last summer. I really feel like I missed an important recharge because of the lockdown last year. I can’t spend these precious months indoors with headphones on, which leads me to..

AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: The Doesn’t Suck Top Ten is going on vacation. That’s right I’m taking the summer off. I know all three of you are disappointed but you’ll get over it. The next Top Ten will be for September. Until then, I’ll be kicking around on twitter and the DS Facebook Group, and I may do some kind of random sporadic posting here on the blog should I feel so inspired. 

Hope you all have a good summer/winter.

Tah tah muthafuckaaaaas!

  1. The Mega Yeah EP is v good. Also digging the Neighborhood Brats and Love Supreme releases from the Scrap Heap. Hope you spend lots of time outdoors this summer – here in Texas, things are pretty “back to normal”, since most people (at least in my area) weren’t wearing masks anyways, and they’re trying to give away vaccines and there’s no takers. :/
