I decided there was so much great music made in 2010 that I would showcase some of my favourite albums and tracks and I hope you like them too. All of December will be dedicated to these lists and the first installment is my top EPs (short albums). Make sure to stay tuned for Top LPs (full length albums) and Top Tracks. I’ll let the songs speak for themselves but all of these albums are worth buying and are a great listen all the way through. Any of them would make a great Christmas gift – and EPs are always cheap!

If you think I missed some worthy EPs, let me know! I love hearing about gems that slipped under my radar or albums that would have made your list. Happy Listening!
