The folks at Paste compiled a list of the Top 10 EPs of 2013, and Saratoga Springs’ electro-pop duo Phantogram snapped up first place honors.

Here’s the list and what they had to say about Phantogram’s self-titled EP:

10. Andrew Bird, I Want to See Pulaski at Night
9. Wild Nothing, Empty Estate
8. The Men, Campfire Songs
7. Parquet Courts, Tally All the Things That You Broke
6. Kurt Vile & the Violators, It’s a Big World Out There (And I Am Scared)
5. CHVRCHES, The Mother We Share
4. PHOX, Confetti
3. Destroyer, Five Spanish Songs
2. The Flaming Lips, Peace Sword
1. Phantogram, Phantogram
“Phantogram’s self-titled EP is concise—just four tracks—but it offers a taste of what’s to come on the band’s recently announced new full-length, which is due out Feb. 18. All four songs are expected to be on the forthcoming LP (titled Voices), and it’s a good thing, because they’re all great. Opener ‘Black Out Days’ features Sarah Barthel wailing over an absolutely killer beat, and Josh Carter handles lead vocals on the dialed-back-but-equally-stunning ‘Never Going Home,’ insisting that ‘if this is love, I’m never going home.’ Here’s hoping he sticks to his word—we can’t wait to catch the band on tour once Voices drops.”
