best of 2012: top five EPs

Best of 2012 continued.  Fave covers are up, and top tracks and albums will be posted this week.

Keeping the albums separate from the EPs again this year, because how can you judge a 5 song EP to 17 song album?

And let me say, for the millionth time, more EPs please!  Perfect introduction to a new band, perfect release that keeps me happy between full-lengths from a favorite band.  So thank you to these bands/artists for indulging my craze by putting out some excellent EPs.

Honorable Mentions:

Solange – True [Terrible Records]
Majical Cloudz – Turn Turn Turn [Merok]
Summer Camp – Always [Moshi Moshi/Apricot Recording Company]

5. Life Sized Maps – Excavate
