Top 15 of 2014 • EP Edition

As always, this was a very challenging list to construct, but I’m hoping it effectively highlights the many, excellent EP’s that were released last year (as well as a couple that were released in 2013 – see * [ Notes ] below). Later in the year I’ll be back with the LP Edition, but in the meantime, stay up to date by following The Undertow on Facebook and subscribing to the New Generation Slave on YouTube!
