Favorite EPs of 2013

I always procrastinate on getting my year end lists finalized, and I’ve done it once again, so in order to try and jump start this process, here are my favorite EPs from 2013.

1. Burial - Rival Dealer

Right, so this came out about a week ago, and it’s somewhat of a departure from Burial’s past sound, but it’s still amazing. And if you’ve been listening to Beyoncé instead of this, well, I’m sorry for you.

2. Annie - A & R

This was one of only 2 true “Pop” albums I cared about this year (the other will be in the list of albums). The track, Invisible, is a ‘banger’, not whatever crap Miley tried to pass off.

3. Mssingno - Mssingno

Grime + R&B samples have been done to death, but not like this. Just go listen to XE2.

4. Tirzah - I’m Not Dancing

Properly the most “hipster” video to come out this year, but whatevs.

5. Sampha - Dual

Absolutely gorgeous voice + piano. Oh, and he worked with Drake, if that’s your sort of thing.

6. Pional - Invisble / Amenaza

The dude that worked with John Talabot.

7. FKA twigs - EP2

Trip-hop or something. Water Me, tho.

8. Koreless - Yugen

Fourth Young Turks EP in a row. This one with synths.

9. Alice Ant - Alice Ant, Pt. 1

Sort of Four Tet-y.

10. Jeremy Greenspan & Borys - God Told Me To

One half of Junior Boys with the guy that is responsible for this (unless someone on Discogs tagged the wrong guy, but I REALLY REALLY hope it’s the same guy).

Oh and here’s a list of concerts I went to:

  1. Disclosure
  2. FaltyDL / James Blake
  3. Anthony Naples (DJ set) / Four Tet
  4. Crystal Castles
  5. Holy Other / Mount Kimbie
  6. Kidnap Kid (DJ set) / Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
  7. Grizzly Bear / The xx
  8. Savages
  9. Sam Smith / Jessie Ware
  10. Kate Boy
  11. Mount Kimbie
  12. Bonobo
  13. Polica
  14. Nathan Fake / Clark / Jon Hopkins
  15. King Krule

Favorite tracks and albums to come.
