Motion City Soundtrack are no more, but frontman Justin Courtney Pierre launched a solo career this year with his album In The Drink, which does a pretty great job of filling the void left by MCS. Now that 2018 is coming to a close, we asked Justin what his favorite albums of the year were, and he sent a list of his ten favorite albums plus two EPs. His #1 pick is Chosen Family by Thin Lips (who opened Justin's recent West Coast tour), and the rest of his list (which isn't in order) includes The Breeders, Guided by Voices, Superchunk, Speedy Ortiz, Courtney Barnett, Laura Jane Grace, Low, boygenius, and more. Check out the full list below.
