The Best EP’s (and singles) of 2016


 

Here’s NoSnobsAllowed’s first “Best of 2016” list this year. I’ve gathered the best extended plays and standalone singles from past 12 month, which as you can see was a generous period of time. It was very difficult to put them in order according to any other criteria other than alphabetically.
