White Lung at Baby's All Right
Kenny with White Lung at Baby’s in May (more by Amanda Hatfield)

White Lung made one of our favorite punk albums of the year with Paradise, and we asked them to tell us what were their favorite albums of the year. Guitarist Kenny William sent a list, which includes big pop/R&B/rap releases like Kanye West, Rihanna and Blood Orange, smaller post-punk like Soft Kill and Lust For Youth, and more. Check out his whole list, with some commentary and a stream of one song from each (picked by Kenny), below.

No tour dates for White Lung at the moment (they last played NYC in October).

It’s always fun to hear self-recorded demos of songs you already know, I liked some of the versions of the songs on this release better than the originals
