My Favorite EP’s of 2008

Filed in Best Of 2008, Live Reviews and Music News 2 comments

Each year, I do a best albums listing that is fairly comprehensive, and I am still working on this years version. However, I also like to do a best of EP’s post, since I generally do not include any in the albums listing. So here it is, my favorite 5 EP’s from 2008.

airfrance My Favorite EPs of 2008Air FranceNo Way Down EP
I really loved this chilled out electronica from Swedens Air France. The sounds at times reminded me of the more low key moments on M83′s Dead Cities… album from a few years back. “Collapsing At Your Doorstep” is a song I could put on repeat all day and not get tired of.

Dirty On PurposeLike Beesdop My Favorite EPs of 2008
Dirty On Purpose released a great EP back at the start of 2008, which was the first of 2 EPs in 08′ for the Brooklyn band. Little did I know that they would be parting ways as the year finished up. Even so, this release stands up as what might be my favorite from the band, which says alot.

grizzlybear My Favorite EPs of 2008Grizzly BearFriend EP
2008 was the year I really fell for Grizzly Bear (even though this EP was released in 2007.) I know, I know, I’m really late to the party, but this EP was a primer for me and I’m thankful I dove into everything else afterwards. In addition to some great covers from other bands like Band Of Horses and CSS on this EP, the cover of “He Hit Me” is haunting and brilliant.

couldwesurvive My Favorite EPs of 2008Joseph ArthurCould We Survive
Say what you will about Joseph Arthur, who not only released a full length album this year, but 4, count em 4 EP’s as well. Prolific? No, that is what we say about Ryan Adams and Robert Pollard. Arthur is in a league of his own. Could We Survive was the first of the 4 EPs this year, and easily my favorite.

bloodsugar album My Favorite EPs of 2008The Bloodsugars – BQEP
Brooklyn’s The Bloodsugars came out of nowhere for me this year, and released an excellent debut EP. This very talented group is just on the cusp of some really great stuff, and this debut is the evidence.

The DecemberistsAlways A Bridesmaid Singlesbridesmaid My Favorite EPs of 2008
I’m putting these three together and calling it an EP. Some really excellent tunes from the Portland band on all three of these “singles” have me very excited for their new album, which is due out in the spring.

About

Joe started ENS in 2003 after most people he wanted to talk to about music were worn thin by his ramblings. The outlet this site provided helped out, and somehow is still going 9 years later. After a four year stint as a WOXY DJ, Joe returned to Cincinnati and continues to pioneer ENS. In addition to the overall look and feel of the site, Joe provides regular reviews, and kinda makes sure this whole thing stays afloat.

I would throw Passion Pit and Animal Collective on mine. Passion Pit for potential (the way Vampire Weekend was last year) and Animal Collective for sheer anticipation of the new album.
