I am hoping to listen to more punk rock this year, and I'm going to try to post to this thread regularly. Join me if you'd like!

First up, the new album from CIVIC from Melbourne, Australia, where each of the 5 million residents lead a punk band, it seems.

CIVIC has jumped to big (and pretty good) American indie label ATO Records, which is also home to Amyl & the Sniffers.

And from Weird-Ass Cincinnati, the third album in like 18 months from noisy/unsettling post-punk band The Drin:

This is one of five albums released (in Europe) by the excellent Drunken Sailor label; I need to check out the other four. (Released via Feel It Records in the U.S.)

Civic is a great band, I love New Vietnam. Punk hasn't been v popular on ilm the last few years, seems like most of the people who are into this stuff just quit posting

Not sure if it was discussed last year (it wasn't nominated for EoY and I had to write it in) but punk ilx0rs should check out the Sniffany & The Nits album: https://sniffanyandthenits.bandcamp.com/album/the-unscratchable-itch

^ guy from The Tubs is in that band ... The Tubs new record is excellent, but it doesn't quite belong in this thread! (Check it out, though.)

New ripper from Gel ... new album out in March:

I will probably contribute to this thread at some point but not right now. I will instead post my favourite song of the day which is Loser Leave Town by Rancid Vat (1996)

I love the Finnish band Nyrkkitappelu, who have a new album out this month.

I wrote about them at length here.

Oh man, I didn't catch the Civic mentions itt, I bumped the "music that rocks" thread to mention their new album.

not exactly "punk" per se, but I think folks itt might like the new Skull Practitioners record out on In the Red:

new record from Public Interest, aka Chris from Marbled Eye, out April 7

catchy post-punk from Oakland!

I will try to post here from time to time, as my girlfriend listens to a ton of new punk/weirdo rock and so I am more tuned into this stuff than I have been for a long time, though I will try to be respectful of the fact that I have not been historically a participant here, so may float a thing out here and there that may not be of interest. Hopefully not!

I do like that Sniffany and the Nits record quite a bit. Most probably know this but since The Tubs record is getting a lot of attention it is worth noting that at least one of them plays on the Sniffany and the Nits record too.

I am a fan of Marbled Eye, will have to check out Public Interest.

historical participation means nothing here! post away!

alpine static, Monday, 27 February 2023 20:13 (one month ago) link

for sure, nice to see u here buddy!

Hey sleeve! And yeah I figured it is no big deal, but thanks. I will try to throw out the good stuff when I hear it.

grandavis, Monday, 27 February 2023 20:24 (one month ago) link

ILX up the punx! welcome grandavis

Hey UMS!

I will put up something from a band I got to see live recently and really liked. Not gonna try to explain it too much, guess it is hardcore leaning punk rock but kind of swings and leans rock a bit more than some. At times the guitars give me a bit of a Monorchid feel for some reason, but yeah I dig this. From Richmond. In particular the song "Great Closing Sleep" rules in my opinion.

grandavis, Monday, 27 February 2023 20:55 (one month ago) link

^^ ok I am loving that, thanks

obsidian crocogolem (sleeve), Monday, 27 February 2023 21:21 (one month ago) link

Sure, glad to hear! Nice folks too.

Don’t know much about 2023 punk; this popped up in my Twitter feed

Lies They Tell Our Children by Anti-Flag. This and their past works are made for every generation suffering under corruption.

weird little tape featured in Bandcamp's "New and Notable" section today:

- Josnali - Enemy Talk EP
- "Call it egg punk or Devo-garage or whatever you like: this EP from Indonesian band Josnali has sass, charm, and lo-fi hooks to spare."
- Three tracks in 2:30

alpine static, Wednesday, 8 March 2023 05:57 (three weeks ago) link

Nice, will check this out

grandavis, Wednesday, 8 March 2023 16:25 (three weeks ago) link

love the Josnali, good stuff, lol it is literally a 3 minute tape

obsidian crocogolem (sleeve), Wednesday, 8 March 2023 16:39 (three weeks ago) link

yeah. three more songs/minutes would've been nice!

alpine static, Wednesday, 8 March 2023 21:06 (three weeks ago) link

today's rolling punk thread album of the week is from guitar-less (!) Mississippi hardcore-meets-hip-hop-ish band MSPAINT, who seem capable of filling this year's Turnstile lane:

MSPAINT is cool

Cannot for the life of me get into Turnstile

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 9 March 2023 14:41 (two weeks ago) link

I liked that last record but don't really know any of their previous stuff. Apparently they've blown up pretty big?

alpine static, Thursday, 9 March 2023 15:59 (two weeks ago) link

Hattiesburg seemingly has a pretty great punk/hardcore community. Just saw Judy and the Jerks a couple of months ago and it ripped! MSPAINT very different but seem cool, enjoying it after a couple of tracks.

grandavis, Thursday, 9 March 2023 16:08 (two weeks ago) link

I know this is not exactly new, but it is new to me (still making my way through recommendations from lists last year, pretty sure this came for the Sorry State Records employee lists). Just a really good blast of straightforward guitar driven punk from Australia. Band is Split System. Put my favorite song up which will pretty much tell you whether you would wanna listen to more (apologies if this was covered last year, came out towards the end of the year though).

grandavis, Thursday, 9 March 2023 17:25 (two weeks ago) link

what is in the goddamn water in Melbourne? crazy number of bands coming out of there, punk and otherwise ... (but lots of punk bands)

alpine static, Thursday, 9 March 2023 17:52 (two weeks ago) link

I love this thread, will try and remember to contribute

ennui soundsystem (doobydoo), Thursday, 9 March 2023 18:29 (two weeks ago) link

huuuge co-sign on the black button record

ennui soundsystem (doobydoo), Thursday, 9 March 2023 18:30 (two weeks ago) link

woooo this split system album starts strong, nice

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 9 March 2023 20:42 (two weeks ago) link

Been enjoying this Waste Man EP. Short and sweet with good riffs and some range across the three songs. A pretty cool sound overall.
