Year of the EP: Wavves, Weekend, Toro Y Moi

One of the best music releases last week was Kurt Vile’s EP So Outta Reach. While there have been excellent new albums out this fall — Girls, Wilco and Wild Flag come to mind — there are some notable short releases, too.

Here are some other recommended EP releases from the past couple of months:

Wavves – Life Sux

Music doesn’t always need to be cerebral. 

I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl – Wavves

Weekend – Red

Nice follow to the impressive debut album Sports from last year.

Hazel – Weekend

Toro Y Moi – Freaking Out

The king of chill follows the full-length Underneath the Pine with a loose, danceable release.

All Alone – Toro Y Moi

Trash Talk – Awake

Fans of hardcore definitely want to check this one out.

Awake – Trash Talk
