As is tradition, the christening of WARM VISIONS LIST WEEK starts with the EPs. The little guys. The quality over quantity. The toe dip before the album. It never feels right to rank EPs with full albums, so I always give them their own time to shine.
This year we see new faces, teasers of things to come, a double dose, a local supergroup, a real good grooves. Hope you find something you really love in this batch. Shout out to Half Waif and Amber Mark too.
