The end of the year is very nearly here and so we continue our year end coverage here on Turntable Kitchen. In that context, this year saw the release of a number of great EPs (many of which can be considered debut EPs) by several great up and coming bands. The Top EPs List shouldn’t be thought of as an appetizer to the Top Albums of 2011 list. Indeed, some of these EPs would fit in comfortably on any year end list regardless of whether they were competing against full length albums.
We previously posted Turntable Kitchen’s Essential Vinyl Singles of 2011 list and our Top Albums of 2011 list will follow soon. After that, we’ll resume posting regular content. So stay tuned. In the meantime, let me know what you think of the Top EPs of 2011 list. Did I miss anything?
