We launched a dedicated EP section to Uber Rock's End of Year lists in 2014 for couple of reasons: the first was that too many people were sticking extended players in their Album of the Year rundowns, thereby creating a grey area which troubled your everyday garden rule-abiding Uber Rocker; the second being that a lot of cool little EPs were slipping under the radar. We're looking to rectify both those points with our second 'Uber Rock's EPs of the Year' feature.

 

We offered every Uber Rock contributor the chance to send in a Top Five EPs list, and eighteen of those clued-in mofos were brave enough to actually do so! As with both the Album and Gigs of the Year lists, last year's Best Album winners, The Hip Priests, were invited to participate; you'll find the Top Five EPs of the band's guitarist, Austin Rocket, alongside seventeen other keen-eared ne'er-do-wells below.

 

At the bottom of the page you will find a collective Top Five EPs rundown which adds up the highest-scoring extended players featured below. Buy them all if you don't already have them! Here goes...
