The countdown to the end of the year is officially on, and with that countdown on, many critics — if not most — are either submitting their year-ender lists or have already done just that. Now this critic is joining those ranks with the first of many year-enders to come in the form of the year’s Top 10 New EPs.
Those who have followed this critic’s daily ramblings year in and year out know that the year-enders have always started with the smallest records, the EPs, and this year is no different. This year has seen a variety of interesting EPs released from across the musical universe.
Veteran rock band Sister Hazel is joined on this critic’s list this year with not one, but two new EPs — Wind and Water. Each one stands out in its own right. Also worth noting this year are new releases from the likes of up-and-coming hard rock/prog-metal outfit Hyvmine, World Music act Te’Amir, with two of its own new EPs and pop country artist Max Ater among many others.
As with every year past, this critic’s list features not 10, but 15 titles. The top 10 titles are the primary titles, while the next five are honorable mention titles. With everything noted, here with out any further ado, is Phil’s Picks Top 10 New EPs of 2018.
