We've had an interesting batch of releases in 2014, haven't we? While the release of singles doesn't seem to die in this scene, the actual album-length releases feel to have been less-than-stellar in 2014, so far. The EP, a medium which allows artists to gather a smaller batch of tracks that might better compliment a set theme or sound than a two-track single or full length album, could be the choice for the future. It allows the artist to highlight why they're worth checking out, and let's fans get a solid grouping of tunes, without possible filler or unnecessary remixes. In 2014, we've been hit with some game-changers in the form of extended play releases, and for the first time in DAD history, we wanted to take a look at the EPs that have moved us... so far.
