Joseph Arthur, King of EPs

"It's almost like the '50s again when it was all about singles. I've always liked the EP because it has a looseness to it. I think songs work best off of each other."

-Joseph Arthur

If there was an artist to be crowned King of the EP, my vote would be for Joseph Arthur. Earlier this month he released Vagabond Skies, the third of four EPs leading up the release of his next full length album Temporary People, which as of now is set to be released on September 16th (after the fourth EP, which arrives July 10th). If you're behind on the count, here are a few tracks from the first two EPs as well as a song from the latest, titled Pretty Good Company.
