Time is officially ticking away to the end of the year, so as the countdown moves closer to the year’s final moments, those annual year-ender lists are starting to show up.  Keeping that in mind, Phil’s Picks has its own year-enders.  As is the case in year’s past, this year’s series of lists starts with the smallest releases, the year’s top new EPs.  Topping this year’s list of new EPs is none other than Nine Inch Nails’ new EP, Add Violence.  This five-song record takes all the best elements of Trent Reznor’s work from With Teeth all the way up to his most recent Nine Inch Nails record, Hesitation Marks both musically and lyrically.

Also included in this year’s list of the year’s top new EPs are independent releases from Paul Johnson & The About Last Nights, Chapel, Light The Way and others.  The list, as in years past, includes the year’s Top 10 new EPs as well as five additional honorable mention titles, for a total of 15 records.  With all of that having been noted, the following is Phil’s Picks 2017 Top 10 New EPs.
