#161

Stereogum’s 25 best EPs.

Surprised they left off Spielbergs’ Distant Star EP, they were raving about it.


#162

I haven’t read The Wire at all this year (have continued buying it, tho, for when I’m in the mood again) so this is full of stuff I’ve not heard of. exciting.


#163

Complete list is up now:

#167

Snail Mail?! Also I’m going to have to read more of these lists to see if Young Fathers are going to keep being so criminally underrated


#168

#169

Tizrah getting a whole load of love on some of these lists. Really can’t see it myself. Feels like an ep’s worth of ideas, if that, and the Mica Levi production sounds half-finished to my ears. Anyone on here love it?


#170

I notice Hot Snakes have barely featured so far :frowning:


#171

We’re on this sort-of list how nice


#172

Yeah I love it. Probably one of my most listened to albums of the year. It’s definitely a ‘vibey’ album, where you just need to stick the album on and let it flow rather than getting stuck on individual tracks.
I am big Mica fan though and also loved the Taz & May vids e.p. as well so I guess my ears were a little pre-tuned.


#173

or Fucked Up, Or Self Defense, Or Typhoon :roll_eyes:


#174

I love some of the production. It’s all just a bit Later with Jools though.

Gave this a listen a couple of days ago. It’s great, I’m glad it’s getting the acclaim.

Can you guess what our album of the year is going to be based on this? (not telling you how I’m doing the points though)
