honorable mentions EPs

 

Jazmine Sullivan // Heaux Tales (contemporary r&b, neo-soul)

 

Jazmine is hugely talented and this EP was v nice. Don't think it warrants the massive acclaim it's getting, but I'm happy for her for the recognition. To its disadvantage, the two best songs were released last year (and they are fantastic). Listen: Lost One, Pick Up Your Feelings

Heaux Tales

Courting // Grand National (post-punk)

 

Listened to this only once and it was actually great from that one time but didn't have desire to revisit. Will be anticipating their debut LP though

Listen: Grand National

 

Grand National

 

Jorja Smith // Be Right Back (contemporary r&b)

 

Lost & Found is one of my favorite albums of the past decade, this was a cute little gift for the fans to keep us together. Can't wait for her to be right back with a worthy follow up to that classic. Listen: AddictedGone

 

Be Right Back

 

 

 

Top 11 EPs

 

11. BLAWAN // WOKE UP RIGHT HANDED (uk bass, techno)

 

XL delivered with EPs this year

 

Listen: Under Belly

Woke Up Right Handed | Blawan

 

 

10. ALINA BARAZ // MOONGATE (alternative r&b)

 

Gorjiss

 

Listen: Maze, Change My Mind

Moongate - Single by Alina Baraz | Spotify

 

9. JAMES K // 036 (electronic, neo-psychedelia, ambient pop)

 

Pr3tty

 

Listen: Ultra Facial!, Open

036 by James K (EP, Electronic): Reviews, Ratings, Credits, Song list - Rate  Your Music

 

8. AMA LOU // AT LEAST WE HAVE THIS (contemporary r&b, pop rap)

 

Thanks to @Tsareena whom introduced me to this, who was introduced to by @Pink Matter:katie2:

 

Listen: Trust Nobody, All I Can Say

AT LEAST WE HAVE THIS - Single by Ama Lou | Spotify

 

7. COBRAH // COBRAH (hip house, electropop)

 

Insane bops to slut drop to

 

Listen: DIP N DRIP, GOOD PUSS 

COBRAH – COBRAH (2021, File) - Discogs

 

6. ANZ // ALL HOURS + OTMI001 (uk bass, breakbeat, etc.)

 

This queen released two super fun, stellar EPs with intricate production and dazzling soundscapes. They both deserved a mention here but it's fair to say All Hours is the bigger one.

 

Listen: You Could Be (feat. George Riley), Real Enough to Feel Good

Anz: All Hours EP Album Review | Pitchfork

 

5. ALPHABET HOLDS HOSTAGE // TRUTH IN HABITUAL (dream pop, shoegaze)

 

Discovered this thanks to rateyourmusic, it's a very beautiful and heartfelt EP with gorgeous textures and usage of guitar sounds that appeals to my core.

 

Listen: SuperbeautyPsyche Floats Away Downstream

Alphabet Holds Hostage – Truth in habitual Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

 

4. ASIAN GLOW // PT.2345678ANDSTILL (lo-fi / slacker rock, noise pop, emo, folktronica)

 

Asian Glow came through with several releases this year, a debut album, a split release with fellow emo revivalists, and two EPs. This EP is presented in one continuous 16-minute track which goes all out in every direction that we have not previously heard from him. It's a beautiful listen. 

 

Listen: pt.2345678andstill

Asian Glow – Pt.2345678andstill Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

 

3. YVES TUMOR // THE ASYMPTOMICAL WORLD (neo-psychedelia, noise pop)

 

Yves is one of my favorites in the game, as some of you may recall Safe in the Hands of Love was my '18 aoty. This EP is a very solid collection of songs that further show the more conventional side of Tumor (alongside various more experimental moments which are always welcomed).

 

Listen: JackieSecrecy Is Incredibly Important To The Both of Them

Yves Tumor: The Asymptotical World EP Album Review | Pitchfork

 

2. DOSS // 4 NEW HITS SONGS (house, trance, alternative dance)

 

Basically a compilation of the four singles she released throughout the year and they're all absolute serves, ranging from ibiza trance, to electro-house, to trip hop and shoegaze, and excelling in them all. Wish there was more! This single cover deserved to be the EP cover so.

 

Listen: Strawberry, On Your Mind

Doss – On Your Mind (2021, 320 kbps, File) - Discogs

 

1. LSDXOXO // DEDICATED 2 DISRESPECT (hip house, uk bass, ghetto house)

 

"I'm a sick bitch and I like freak sex / If you wanna test the limits of my gag reflex / If you wanna put in work / You gotta go berzerk / You gotta make it hurt / If you wanna make it squirt" – Psalms 6:9

 

Listen: Sick Bitch, The Devil

02. Tinashe - Bouncin

01. Indigo De Souza - Kill Me

BEST SONG EVERELJKRLJKSERJLSD. I debated between this and Darker Than Death for my own list. 

 

Oh wow thank you for the elaborative comments! always interested in hearing other people's takes. Some of my thoughts on your thoughts: I agree the feature on Broken Steel is unncessary, since it's the last bit of the song I sometimes allow myself to skit it. Rochelle ate it down on her own, such an absolute beautiful song from the melody to the vocals to the lyrics to the hard hitting production. Glitch Princess will be 2022 AOTY we planted the seed and we'll see the harvest. So happy to see love for Indigo and especially the song that saved me during the year :jonny:  Darker Than Death is also a fantastic choice.

btw who's the hottie in your poster :gaycat4:

I'm glad you asked. The banner is kind of an inside joke with myself. That picture was some twitter porn account's avi, so had to reverse google search it and saw it's from this video (which turned me off x). 

But that screenshot of him naked and listening to music with headphones... it's everything I stand for :heart2:

You can indeed find lots of gems on rym. I check it very often too.

 

I'm currently checking truth in habitual. Sounds very lo-fi. Reminds me of the dreampop/shoegaze albums from early 10s bandcamp.

Heard a lot about Indigo through peers but haven't really dived into her yet. She's on the queue. Gr8 list all together from the ones i'm familiar with.
