As the CL team hammers out the fine details, counts votes, and prepares to roll out an extensive list of picks for the best albums of 2016, long lists of other kinds of releases are piling up. And so the annual year-end hustle to call out the best of the best begins with a rundown of 13 homegrown singles and EPs that kept the office (headphone) ambiance rich all year long. They aren't quite full-length albums, but they stayed in regular rotation throughout the year.
