The year is approaching drastic steps to an end and that means it’s time to look back. So, as in previous years, here GFRock editors 3 members bid for Danish favorite EP releases in 2014. Earlier in the week we looked at our Top 5 international favorite albums and Top 5 Danish favorite albums.We have chosen the term “favorite”, because just as our 6-star scale represents an attempt to be objective, while we also recognize that we can not avoid some degree of subjectivity, then this list is of course subjectively colored. It places we do not hide the fact and we have because of time constraints not had the chance to listen to much into it together has been notified, or for that matter, listen to “everything” has been published at all. Therefore, the following top 5 an expression of editorial members favorites and not a definitive, objective “year’s best” list.

#2) Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co. –Anti-Solipsism Part One – Creatures So we came to the first of the two EPs which had to settle for 4 stars, but in retrospect should have been 5. Actually it here a half albums, and has a playing time of half an hour, but with its 5 numbers will nevertheless allowed to fall in EP-category. Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co. Based in Copenhagen, but the musicians come from several different countries. Particularly strong in the image is the front man Claudius Pratt’s vocals and the band’s sweaty fusion of rocksteady, soul and blues works really well. Some of the numbers draws perhaps a little too long, but there are a few gems in between, especially ‘The Truth’ and ‘Hey Now’.
