Best of 2011: EPs

It's time to look back at the year that was once again.

I've always thought it was unfair to lump EPs and full length albums into the same ranking scheme.  It's far easier to come up with 4-6 great songs than it is to come up with 10-12.  Hence I break out the EP for a top 10 list of their own every year.

Here are my favorite EPs of 2011:

10. Said The Whale- New Brighton
9. Broken BellsMeyrin Fields
8. WhitebrowAll's Still Before the Storm
7. The CautioneersWhere We Are
6. The DecemberistsLong Live The King
5. The Schomberg FairMercy
4. Yukon BlondeFire/Water
3. RevolverParallel Lives
2. Black Devils Brigade3 Miles Long, 66 Feet Wide

Honourable mentions: Andrea Caswell, Teenage Kicks, Data Romance, The Murder Act, The Watson Twins

Canadian acts are in red.
