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.
Weekend – Red
Nice follow to the impressive debut album Sports from last year.
Toro Y Moi – Freaking Out
The king of chill follows the full-length Underneath the Pine with a loose, danceable release.
Trash Talk – Awake
Fans of hardcore definitely want to check this one out.
