01.03.19 Best punk records of 2018

Best punk records of 2018

Leave your suggestions in the comment section. Outside of my top 5, I've got these listed in no particular order.
1The Creeps
Beneath The Pines

I slept on this one for most of the year. Don't make the same mistake that I did. Highlights are Shimmer & Full Shook. Fans of Menzingers, Spanish Love Songs, etc. will really dig how these guys have progressed as a band.
2Shook Ones
Body Feel

Loved this one from the first second of song one.
3The Brokedowns
Sick Of Space

Just go listen to this album. Now. Can't get these tunes out of my head.
Joy as an Act of Resistance

Maybe the best album of the year in terms of lyrical content? Hits me hard every time I rotate this one.
5 Iron Chic
Iron Chic/Toys That Kill

Seriously, this fucking rips. Bought for IC, stayed for Toys That Kill. Highlights on each side are Amazing Fantasy/Where Have All the Kids Gone?
6Drug Church

Not much I need to say about Drug Church. They fucking rule. They've progressed as song writers and it shows on tracks like Unlicensed Guidance Counselor. I still prefer Paul Walker, but this is a solid album.
7Swingin' Utters
Peace and Love

The Utters are still putting out solid tunes after all of these years. Took me a couple of spins to get into this one, but there are a few ear worms on this one.
8Gouge Away
Burnt Sugar

I'd put this one up there with IDLES in terms of lyrical content. Listen to 'Sweat' and try not to get stoked.
9Spanish Love Songs

I like this album. A lot.
10The Penske File

If you get a chance to see these dudes live, it's a fucking party. Go check 'em out.

This EP is what punk rock should be. Maybe the most underrated band around.
12Culture Abuse
Bay Dream

Still working this one into my rotation. I dig it, but need to give it a few more listens before I say anything of substance.
Time and Space

Turnstile fucking rules. I love the Gorgoroth-esque riff at the beginning of (Lost Another) Piece of My World.
14No Problem
Let God Sort Em Out

Adding this one after having it recommended in the comments section. Listened to it and loved it immediately. Some straight-forward hardcore that I initially overlooked.
15Night Birds
Roll Credits

These guys haven't disappointed me yet. Another solid, albeit not necessarily phenomenal release.
Sonic Delusions

The best pop-punk band currently out there. The Eddie & the Hotrods cover might be better than the original. These guys are a ton of fun.
Sound the Sirens

Skate punk that draws heavy influence from the late 90's Epi-Fat craze.
Hysterese III

Fans of Sing the Sorrow era AFI will love this one. A little less dark/goth feeling, but the singer is a dead ringer for Davey Havoc.
