Below we have our fave EPs from the last year (in no particular order). We’ll be dropping our top albums later this week along with a list of releases that were up for consideration.
Also, check out our EP list from 2010 and see how it holds up.
HAIM - Forever
3 sisters, one goal: create timeless R&B/rock hits. The title track is my favorite song of the year. -T
Glow Marrow - Braver Days
Beautiful melodies, tasteful guitarwork and synth-tropical beats. We can’t wait to hear more from this Los Angeles duo. -T
ROMCOM / Magic Fades - Split CS
For fans of Twin Peaks and waiting on hold. This split collaboration samples from places we miss. If you don’t like the EP artwork, you won’t like the music. FYI, first half is Magic Fades, second half is ROMCOM. -T
Radiation City - Cool Nightmare
[Tender Loving Empire]
A warm, classic sound, sweet vocals, hooks that are catchy as hell, and a killer live show. Look these kids up when in Portland. -J
Pure Bathing Culture - Pure Bathing Culture
Sarah Versprille’s voice is given the perfect amount of space by Daniel Hindman’s smooth guitar work. Together they create some beautiful and dreamy melodies perfect for bath time. -J
We made a lil mix for you to check them all out:
