We review full-length CDs, EPs and singles. All CDs submitted for consideration should contain full artwork or a URL where artwork can be downloaded, and your package should contain either a press release or a full press kit (photographs are occasionally utilised in lieu of sleeve art). Independent releases should include order information and/or your URL if your disc is not available through amazon.com or Esprit.
There is an English sensibility to Extended Playhouse by design. The ezine champions a purer grade of pop than is usually found in American print or alternative publications, emphasising the modern influence of guitar-based sixties-derived pop and the creme de la creme of songwriting (Costello, Mann, XTC) — with an immodest place for 90s and beyond dance music and electronica.
EP does not feature jazz, country, progressive or metal releases.
