Top 8 EPs of 2006…

You know what? I absolutely hate EPs! I think they are useless wastes of space most of the time. I mean why put out an EP when you can just as easily put out a full-length album with a little more work? Anyway, here are 8 EPs that weren’t all bad. Click on the album cover to read the review.

#1 Colour Revolt “Colour Revolt” (Esperanza Plantation)

– As most people know I’m quite high on this band. These six songs are why.

#2 Voxtrot “Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives” (Cult Hero)

– One of the most infectious bands I found this year. These songs will seep into your mind and find a permanent spot.

#3 Sinaloa “Split Recording” (Ebullition)

– Sinaloa’s five songs on their split recording with Ampere earlier this year continues the band’s incredible streak. Everything the band has done has been brilliant.

#4 Lemuria “Your Living Room’s All Over Me” (Art Of The Underground)

– My first exposure to this wonderful band. Seven songs on a split recording with Kind Of Like Spitting and they steal the show (to put it nicely). Can’t wait for a full-length.

#5 Jesu “Silver” (Hydrahead)

– This was my first experience with Jesu and it was certainly a mind-blowing one. New album comes out in Februrary.

#6 Zookeeper “Zookeeper EP #1″ (Belle City Pop)

– Ex Mineral/The Gloria Record frontman Chris Simpson makes his return with Zookeeper. Fans rejoice!

#7 Maps & Atlases “Tree, Swallows, Houses” (Self-Released)

– A shockingly good young band from Chicago who Tim Kinsella would be proud of.

#8 Aussitot Mort “Aussitot Mort” (Level Plane)

– Awesome young band from France that plays hardcore as only the French can.
