A List of EPs I Listened To A Lot in 2011

I know that title is a cop out, but I can’t say these are my only favorite EPs of 2011, because it just doesn’t work that like. My musical favorites don’t reset when the clock strikes midnight and the earth gets a year older. Nor do I get through all the music I had hoped to listen to within the confines of Western Civ’s lunar calendar. Like I’ve said a million times before, you can’t read the entire internet, nor should you.

So instead I put together a somewhat comprehensive list of mostly EPs, (maybe a few borderline albums and a couple 7”s), that I have really enjoyed over the passed several months, that were all released in 2011. I might do a list for full lengths and other goodies I missed over the weekend. Then again, I prob won’t. Hope you find a thing or two you missed this year.

Please send hate mail to: gluttonyisthenewblack@gmail.com. All insights/comments are welcomed, and I promise to reply by 2014.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS LIST?

Mark McGuire Brainstorm (For Erin) + Get Lost Videos

WARNING: This video is as campy hipster as it gets…but since "Brainstorm (For Erin)" was one of my favorite tracks of 2010, I can appreciate the video ever so slightly. After all, the point of videos is to make you feel something right? This one definitely does. It’s uncomfortable and frustrating, which is an interesting juxtaposition in relation to the song. Video by Beth Houfek and Patrick O’Dell

Peep the video above, and watch Mark’s official video for his first single, "Get Lost" off his new album below (via Lifephaser)
