Re: 2016 U.S. Presidential Election

Ouch! Was still mildly optimistic when I went to bed at 3.00 (Netherlands). Slept well, but was appalled after reading the results, as everybody is around here.
Anyway, although this result really is upsetting in too many ways, I won't let this take away my positive view of life.
But still, what now?

Depends what the artist envisioned for the EP.
For acts like Autechre and Burial, EPs are definitely quite important. EPs are more of a go-to format for electronic artists anyway.

Most surpised by Creep at three, but I see it did well in the all-time songs poll and rediculously well at AM (especially compared to other Radiohead songs).

Also, not a bad showing of of the still very new AMSP and it's songs.
